    Wow thats very nice, like TiG I am not a big fan of the dashboard...why are so many new cars built with weird interiors

    Couple of questions tho:

    [+] What is a 'double' sunroof?

    [+] Are those keyless systems fool-proof?

    Nice car anyways

    Can I add one to Tom's list pls?


    What on the good earth is a "Chronophonic" rear view mirror?? probably a good reason for the name but to me it sounds like a normal rear view mirror, that shrieks -most distressingly if you look at it for too long....

    double sunroof = 2 sunroofs, one in front one in back.

    Yes the keyless system is fool proof

    The rear mirror, at night time, automatically tints to a certain level depending on the brightness of the headlights on the car behind you, so you dont get dazzled

    Very nice, wasn't a fan of the new shape megane to start with but after seeing it a few times its grown on me

    one problem with those keyless entry things in my mind though, how do you go and check if its locked............it'll just unlock itself when you get near to it again

    Not if it's the same as the card system in the new Laguna... we have one at work (pool car) and they had loads of problems with it either not letting you in the car or letting you in and not starting. This was from new and took about 3-4 months to sort out (always worked when took it back to Renault), although I think it's fine now - but no-one wants to drive it LOL! Hope yours is OK though.

    Looks a nice car although I still don't like the styling, can't help thinking that the designer was that one person who liked Judge Dredd the Movie. Each to their own though if we all liked the same we'd all be driving Black Fraud Crocus's looks very well specc'ed for a 1.6 you must be Lovin' it Lovin' it Lovin' it !!!

    I think you have to touch a pad on the door handle to open the car - it won't just let you in iirc. I know lock it you push the pad twice - and there's a touch pad on the boot lid for the same purpose. Perrsonally, I'd have one just so I could start my car with a button






    hmm might wire a big red lit up one into the Landy... hmmmm thats a good idea...

    Nice, just not a fan of the "arse end", although I think it's something Renault is sticking with

    Err maybe he's from NI?

    Also, I think the NI plates are great - hides the age of the car.

    When will the French learn

    As Meganes go, it's very nice mate! Someone down my road's got one just like it in blue, which looks nice... apart from the blue bit

    The dials look cluttered, and the silver mid section? no thanks.
