Re: driving experience megane 3 hatch

I once owned a 3.0 litre Subaru Legacy with the 6-speed manual and because of some silly engine management software with regard to the clutch (it was designed to 'help' with gearchanging), I could seldom change gear smoothly.
I have a new Clio dCi now which has a 5-speed gearbox but with taller ratios for economy. I do notice that first is really only for moving off from a standstill and, if the change-up lamp on the dash is to be believed, one has to change to second very quickly. The 1-2 change is slightly less smooth than the higher gears but I think that is true of all manual boxes.
Currently in mrtotty's garage:
2011 Clio dCi 88 Expression Eco
