I was cleaning my car today and was thinking how much I love my 225.

I've only had it for 3 weeks and about 150miles but every time i get in it, it puts a grin on my face.

Also i was sat in a line of traffic on Saturday and these middle ages guys were just staring at it and trying to see the badge on the front.

I have to say I'm extremely happy that i went for this over the other cars in the same category!

just thought i'd share that with you all hahaha :D :D

I have to agree matey I clean my car twice a week and also the car turns heads from all age groups and Im amazed when the old folks look because its the sort of people you would not expect to look. Its not the typical run of the mill car where you see one every mile has you are driveing.

Yeah the older audience do appreciate the car actually. Where my 172 was mostly appreciated by people in the know as to what it was.

The Megane stands our more. My nan of all people thought the car was fantastic and loved the colour! lol :lol: :lol:

Me and my mate drove all the way from Newcastle to Ipswich (about 280 miles) to get mine. He said that i'd had a grin on my face all the way back, the grin is still there. :D

Love the looks that the car gets when i'm just cruising along. But the best bit is watching those charv cars disappearing in the rear view cause they are always underestimating what it can do!

Andy thats a big jump from a 1.2 to a 225 haha.

I went from a 1.2 Clio to a 172 and that was mental lol. I loved my 172 but find myself grinning from ear to ear evey time I get in the 225. Its a world apart from the Clio and thats before I've even had the chance to test the performance. :lol:

My 1st car was a Renault 5 GTL 1.3 then I went to a 5 Gordini then loads of 5 Gordini Turbos, then a breif spell with a 5 Turbo 2, then a 172 then the Megane 225

Done a year without my licence for speeding, 134mph on a motorway at 5.15 in the morn

Oh yeah and a couple of vans

But I have to say that the Meggy is a dog :evil:

I remember going from a 1.4 fiat bravo to the 172 and thinking how the hell can this amount of speed be legal!!

The 225 has been awsome. The attention it gets even now is ridiculous really. I've had people in petrol stations asking me what it was etc, m8s and stuff I've taken out in it are just blown away by the speed, I had my dad swearing (first time I heard him swear!) took him on the local bypass road and he goes "fucking hell thats quick" hehe nearly gave the old fella whiplash, had a crowd of neighbours round it when I first got it too, the old 172 never drew that much attention but I guess the meg is a bit more in ya face
