My girlfriend owned a clio sport 172, I used to love driving it, fastest car I've ever driven, and I hear the Megane is quicker! I almost got one a couple of years back, but went for a 350z.
I like the colour too, my nissan was sunset orange and it was like Marmite, people loved it or hated it. i feel cars like that should be noticeable, infact, I may respray the 335i bright green!!
