    Hi guys, thought i'd say hello as im thinking of changing my Megane 225 for a 330d (204bhp) mainly for the fuel economy and remapped shouldnt be to far behind the Meg

    Any tips for what to look at for when i go looking would be appreciated

    Cheers Paul

    It doesnt torque steer at all and the handling awesome but i do fancy steering from the rear

    What kind of power do the 330d go upto after being remapped and what MPG can i expect? low 40's im guessing!

    You could easily get around 250bhp and 510nm with a remap, not sure on MPG, how heavy's your right foot

    Thats alot of torque can the clutch handle it?

    Most people would say i've got a lead foot & being honest id probably agree, if i take it easy i can see 30 mpg in the Meg but im normally around the 24 mark its so boring driving like miss daisey with 260 horses under right foot!!

    Talk is cheap , well that type is! I would have thought the clutch would be up to the job, unless it was getting weak anyhow

    Depends how often i turn the ESP/TC off

    To be honest its quite surprising how well it puts the power down (nothing like a VXR)

    Whats the 330d like round bends as its a heavy lump in the front My mates got a 320cd m sport and that handles well.
