Jon,
Lisa has been onto our dealer and spoken to a lady who has already been on a course about the Phase II. They said that is just pure exterior styling thats been changed and the interior specs remain the same.
Drop me a line if you hear of something different.
Regards
Adrian

This is the information I have found. The press releases are all giving the same information. I for one will want to order the facelift due to the added extras at no extra cost. I am at a loss as to why renault do not have the same information.

Improvements to standard Renaultsport models
Just as the rest of the Megane range receives various tweaks as part of its face-lift, so do the three Renaultsport models.

The changes are mainly cosmetic, and Renault has attempted to differentiate more between the standard 225 model and the 225 Cup version. The latter receives blue and black 'Scotec' cloth interior, while the standard car now has full leather interior, climate control, and 60-Watt CD/MP3 player as standard. Prices for the updated models remain the same.

Megane Renaultsport prices
2.0T Renaultsport 3dr £19,500
2.0T Renaultsport 5dr £20,000
2.0T Renaultsport Cup 3dr £18,600
2.0T Renaultsport 225 Cup 3dr £19,500

Hi, Take a look at the links above, they have changed the specs too :)

I am just asking the dealer if we can supply the F1 Special (fingers crossed)

Jono,

All I can say is that this is great news for NEW 225 owners..

ok so you get the following aswell over the old 225

even with more standard equipment like climate control, full leather interior and 60W CD/MP3 RDS radio on the Mégane Renaultsport 225

i would still pay less and have the cup over the standard 225 as its a 99% better handling car, even if it did mean loosing the climate and full leather.

any way thats IMO, still would like to see one of those F1s in the flesh

and dont forget that you don't have to keep setting the auto wiper, as it's a self setting switch, so they will work straight away when ever it starts to rain. so no more turning them off then back to auto any more :lol:
