Not sure the headlining colour warrants that verb. However, on sunroof cars, the headlining is light. It's black on non-sunroof cars

A bit harsh KirstyLOL

I would like to think very few buyers would spoil a potentially great car with a sunroof anyway, but who knowsShocked

Be interesting to see what percentage of current Clio 200/220 owners continue to opt for the edc if they trade up to the Megane.

1. Is there the option to have an LSD with the auto box?
2. Recaros due to come Sept 18 they said - is that for orders from Sept 18?
3. Is the Trophy going to be orders from Dec 18 or deliveries from Dec 18. If it's deliveries, when can we order ?

Manual all the way. It'll probably keep its value better as the enthusiasts choice.

i've got my R26 for track, i'd take etc on the road every day, i'd never use a car of that value for trackdays anymore, and i do consider myself an enthusiast. Makes me laugh the people that think they are somehow more enthusiast because they prefer a manual and probably never been near a track day.

If residuals 3 years down the line are important to you then I would humbly suggest that you should not be buying new.
Cars in this segment have never been an 'investment' in my experience (My BMW Mini purchased on the release day being the one exception) and it seems that these days the majority of people 'rent' their car.
Just go for the car that you want and is best suited to your needs.

Personally I love the EDC in the Trophy both on road and track so for me the same in the Megane would be a no-brainer.

My money would be on auto out selling manual on the first release, possibly moving to evens for the Trophy.

I by no means is a car enthusiast, but I was totally converted when I tracked a Ferrari 430. Flappy pedals makes perfect sense for going in and out of apex. Two hands on steering on a high speed corner better than one, that's a no brained in my humble view.

I've ordered a 220T and planning to track. I don't mind a few scratches here and there as it would be a daily driver and they just happen. Any particular reason why high value cars should not be tracked? Insurance covers everything, don't they?

I know most enthusiasts love spending countless hours to protect the paint but I much prefer to keep the important things in check, ie tyre pressure, boost pressure, oil levels etc. Please don't hate me now LOL

Do you mean normal car insurance or trackday insurance? Car insurance doesn't cover any damage on track and to be fair trackday cover only pays back a percentage of the vehicle value. I can understand not wanting to take high value cars on track, even with trackday insurance, unless you are quite wealthy.

Anyone know (or can guess) why the LSD is only available on the manual? Does the power delivery of a auto not need it or is it a packaging limitation?

The LSD is in the gearbox isn't it for FWD cars, rather than on the axle for RWD cars - it may well be that the it either can't be packaged in the box or the gearbox supplier doesn't do variant a with an LSD incorporated. It's available for the manual as they are using the same box as the Mk3 iirc, which obviously already has an LSD built into it.

i had an R26.R that i was using for track days, loved it, but always wary of anything happening to it even though it was insured for track use, my current R26 is also insured on track, but i' not precious with this one, worth nowhere near what the .R was.
Is that confirmed that the EDC wont have an LSD?

Yes, just confirmed by JT in the other thread.

Had a look at the Getrag site and found no mention of mechnical LSD so I guess it is not an option from them.

Anyone know which box will be used?
From their potfolio pages the 3 contenders appear to be...
6DCT250 Max. torque: 280Nm 6 gears
6DCT451 Max. torque: 450Nm 6 gears
7DCT300 Max. torque: 320Nm 7 gears

You would imagine that it's the middle one, as the other two are not viable due the torque limit being lower than what the 1.8T engine produces.

Should be a great car what ever the box in it. Will it be running the Wet EDC version like the Megane GT or the Dry version like the R.S. clio? (Sorry if I have these the wrong way round)
