The Megane RS is also another excellent FWD performance car with even more power but just not as hardcore as the FD2R so easier to live with as a daily car. Actually the Golf GTI is also another good one, just unfortunately in Malaysia the manual version is not available.

Not as hardcore, you mean Megane is easier to be use as daily car?

For me Megane seem like an "easier" choice. Not be a hot car, for me is a huge relieve already, but need to be very patient in case you need any spare parts i guess.

Because the suspension is not as stiff as the FD2R hence more comfortable for daily drive.

Agree and got easy turbo power, BUT I know quite a few people who crashed their Megane when driving close or at the limit. Almost all was lift off over steer. Anyway maybe driver problem.... biggrin.gif

Tested the Renault Megane 250 twice before I decided on the FD2R facelift. As some say, it is another great FWD rocket. But one main reason I went back to FD2R was the heavier clutch on the Megane. If I already hated driving manual on weekdays to and from work, I would have hated driving the Megane even more.

The other reason, though not the primary reason is the crappy rear seat leg room. I am not very tall. When I configure the front seat to my ideal driving position and then I went to the back, the front of my feet touches the front seat and the back touches the rear. And my shoe size is only UK 8 laugh.gif Basically, your leg is f****d if you sit behind for long drive rclxs0.gif

FD2R is an ideal sub-RM200k 5-door NA rocket with excellent handling characteristics in stock form that's unmatched by any other in the same category, in my humble and honest opinion. Their track times at Sepang are testament to it.

Yes you're right, the rear space is more limited. Clutch I suppose is typical of European cars, rarely as light as Japanese cars.

It is good to know that you are realist to acknowledge that you are going through mid life crisis

Most people think, it is around 50 years of age.

Good luck finding your excitement

Not that i'm considering any of it, just wanna hear an opinion from a pro.

I can drive manual, but driving auto will bring much ease of a driving for me.


Iinm megane was the fastest FWD at Nurburgring when it was launched.

Yeah people open with crazy prices, but I noticed not many can sell too, hanging for months. I think I might as well go for A45 instead if crazy prices like that!
