Just ordered the 225 and when I have been telling the guys at work what I have ordered most have said the same thing " what ! not the one with the big Arese ?" yes thats all they will see.

You either love um or hate um.

To be quite frank and imo the trouble with this country is if a car doesnt blend in to the background of most of the other cars on the road , then its ugly.
Lets be honest how many other cars out there look diffrent to all the rest not many !
Some car designers / car companies take a great deal of pride in their designs, the majority dont , hence the stream of boring looking cars you see on the motorway everyday.
I am not a pro french person but they have produced some exciting and radical designs over recent years , and good on them.
Maybe the term ugly is a translation for missunderstood or plain i dont understand or appreciate good design.
I am pro design and lets have more from all car companies not just the french.

Glad i got that of me chest :wink:

I think the secret of a good design is one that starts to make sense over time, when I first got the 225 I didnt like the rear end at all but when your used to it you can see its a great design. Thats why designers get paid so much then!

Couldnt have put it better myself! The arse end is my 2nd favourite part of the car, after the front end! :p

I've always liked the Megane shape, mainly the front as I reckon its got one of the slickest front profiles about.

The arse end is neither here nor there on me, although I do much prefer the 3 door and in the 225 model but I like it and thats why I've got one.

Besides no one expects them to be so quick!!!

I think the back end looks fantastic especially when its lowered, take a look at the red cup pictures on the home page or renno site with the back arches sat just over the cup wheels, makes me moist everytime! :lol: :lol:

Here in MOnterrey, there are just a few folks with 225...the reason.. the same that you just said... But I agree with Phil...MOre impresive if the car fits a 245/35/19 tyres..It looks huge from behind :twisted: :twisted:
That´s what my black megg has...
The car it´s an awsome one and the design is one of the greatest in MEXICO, but you know that the great things are just for smart people :wink: :wink:

Dare to be different. Folks may say its ugly personally I thinkl the new civics ugly, and the old one, but I love the BMW 1 series. Some people dont have the bottle to leave the flock.

If you take time to look at the lines of the megane everything down to the lights is an integral part of the design, everything flows really nicely trouble is people dont take the time to look at it they just see the ass

I could not possibly agree more with all of you...

I personally think that Le Quement had the bottle to be brave and propose something new (and the board backed him up!)

The Megane, especially the 225 with its fatter front and rear is an very well executed shape. Being the rear my personal favorite!

I really dont understand why people are so averse to change... Its interesting, they want something different, but not that different, they want to stand out from the crowd but not too much...

Its like girls with clubs... "oh... this place is empty!... oh no.. this one's too full!".... People want this in-the-middle thing where they just fuse with the crowd...

Now apparently, they are also giving the Modus grief! Its one of the most fantastically well packaged cars of the last 5 years... Yes.. The Jazz is as good but styling wise????? Just one more sheep in the design flock...

Vive Le Quement!!!!!
