    Took Maggie (our Megane II) to the garage for clutch repair and they said to sell her on eBay for spares or scrap her as the repair would cost more than she's worth. I can't believe this. She's in great condition for a 2003 Megane. 78,000 miles. She has the usual problems. One of the rear...

    Hey guys Anyone got any real mpg figures for the petrol v6? I'm getting 31 average out of the 2.2 dci so could the cost difference between petrol and diesel result in similar fuel bills with the big petrol engine? (obviously real world mpg figures for the V6 req'd) I think they're brilliant...

  13. Bodywork
    Ill just preface this by saying the 2012 "normal"Meganes are now coming with side mouldings painted body colour.
