What would you choose?
Ok. So next year I want to move on from the RX8. Its between two contenders;

Renault Megane RS250 cup pack

Price; Between £10k-£13k (estimate)
0 - 60 mph; 6.0 s
0 - 100 mph; 13.3 s
Power; 184 kw (247 bhp / 250 ps) @ 5500 rpm
Torque; 340 Nm (252 lb-ft) @ 3000 rpm
Displacement; 2 liters (122 ci)
Engine type ; inline4 16V DOHC turbo

PRO'S; 5 seats, good room, big boot, turbo. Superchips remap gives you around 45-50bhp increase over standard, great MPG, renouned 'hot hatch' performance.

CON'S; wrong wheel drive,

Nissan 370z GT Pack

Price; between £15k-£17k
0 - 60 mph; 4.9 s
0 - 100 mph; 11.8 s
Power; 243 kw (326 bhp / 330 ps)
Torque; 366 Nm (271 lb-ft)
Displacement; 3.7 liters (226 ci)
Engine type ; V6

PRO'S; Synchro rev, cruise control, climate control, speed limit, build quality, remap removes torque restriction on 1st-3rd gears, raises top speed restriction

CON'S; very litle boot space, only two seats, tyre sizes are EXTREMELY expenisve (im talking £235 per tyre at the front, £280 at the rear)

Whats your thoughts? Im loving the Megane with the turbo, its practicality but I love the 370z and its raw power along with naturally the Japanese car scene IE Japfest, JAE. Theres only FCS for french cars down the arse end of England and thats it. Trax is shite.

So what's your opinions?

I hate to say it but given the choice id have the 370z.

Megane just does nothing for me as good as they are suppose to be.

I know what you mean mate. Majority of people would go for the 370z. part of it is more of a case of, could I live with just a two seater car and no boot? Thats what made the RX8 great; big boot for my dads wheelchair and two back seats which, its not as cramped as you think; not like the 350z where you have to be amputated contortionists to be combfy!

One thing making me lean towards the Megane, is the ease of modifications. Theres not alot you can do to the 370z, its a good £1500 for an exhaust and a remap which its almost double what the Megane is, but you get alot more out of the megane than the 370z which is obvious when your comparing an N/A to a Turbo.

I know you get the old 'french crap' and the whole 'reliability' armchair experts, but I had french for 4 years and never had a fault in the slightest lol. I was never a huge fan of this shape megane but its growing on me more and more.

See the car will be something I will take on finance, and something I want for a while so I want to plan ahead for certain eventualities to make sure theres some flexibility with the car. I know exactly what i would do to the megane and the 370z mod wise finance or not; as I wont default in the slightest on payments.
