Rather than upgrade my awesome 330d , I just decided to use the money for an addition. An R26 awesome fun.

Nice,

Doesn't (or is it now "didn't") the R26 hold the fastest time around the 'Ring for a FWD car?

That's the R26R which is stipped out and almost a track car.

Having done the hot hatch thing for years before buying the 335i, I just could not go back to FWD.

Nice.....but its no Clio........

Very nice though......couldnt live with liquid yellow mind but it is very much an "each to their own" colour. I'd be going for that silver/blue'ish one. Cant fault the car however.......until it breaks, which it will. Alot.

And from my recent experience, Renault prices are NOT far off BMW.

Wankers. The French.

Enjoy though.

Thanks for clearing that up.

Regarding the FWD vs RWD debate, I think there's a place for both in the world. There are plenty of highly competent FWD cars in the world and many which I would like to own.

RWD is all about the power-over

The R26.R is INCREDIBLY quick around a track - the R26 isn't far off though. In fact I'll probably invite scorn but I would expect one to give a 335i/d a run for it's money. Not massive power but a very track friendly chassis. Awesome cars for the money. And way quicker than a Clio!

Nice car Steve, love the color.

I fancied one of these a few years back but opted for the 130i, wish I'd gone with the Renault in the end, enjoy! (see you on track sometime?)

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!!

Enjoy
