    Default Megane 225...if only i could....

    I had a dead quiet day at work today, so here's what i did!!!! If only I could actually buy one. If tomorrows quiet I'll do a driving shot I have this as a larger file if anyone wanted a copy to muck around with (also as layered .psd)

    One of my copies of performance GTi mag (sept/oct 2004) has a Megane 225 done up very nicely by a Polish guy. I don't have a scanner otherwise I would scan it!

    However, he put 19" rims in it with 235/75 rubber. He even fitted a Cyogenic Intake system and has been re-chipped which is alot of work for only 38bhp gain. If you could see it you would agree that it looks just a little bit good!

    yeah, I tried retouching on some 19" rims but looked kinda silly. In this pic they would be about 18". I think in reality, you would need a "heavier" looking wheel than the OZ rims i put on. heres the original pic...a little bland

    The guy got the car 3 days before release ... and spent a bomb on it.

    Trouble was 4 dynos later (as stock standard) the most they could get from the 225 was 198 ... that had him seriously worried (and a bit pissed) ... I know dynos are not acurate things, but it wasn't making anywhere NEAR the claimed power, interesting.

    If the car was modified from brand new, the engine would be too tight to push any serious horspower. Maybe after 10,000k's it would be different. Still, it would be an anti-climax to your new "225" only pull 198

    Yeah, I think that Cryogenic co2 system he put in wouldn't be cheap.

    As for the 19s, he does have an arch body kit on it which would change the look somewhat.

    XTC can you scan the article??
