    Icon7 megane 225 or 225 club??

    Hello all.
    I am the proud owner of a 2005 Megane sports 225. Can anyone tell me the difference between mine and the 225 club? I believe the club has stiffer suspension and a larger bore brake master cylinder as well as drilled discs. There would have to be some badging one would think as apart from holes in the discs nobody could check the other mods. As an aside the Megane 225 is a fabulous car, very reliable, engine and gearbox are absolutely bulletproof.

    The Cup version (as opposed to Club) also has Brembo calipers, also the 12 spoke charcoal coloured 18 inch rims, as well as the revised suspension.

    Actually, the Cup has four wheel Brembos, whereas the 225 has Brembos only on the front.

    One point, the early 225s has the same pads on the rear as the Laguna, contrary to many brake pad listings that says all non Brembo rears on Meganes (2003-2010 etc) are the same. They're not!

    My RS225 has done 167K km and the engine is as tight as a drum and rather lovely. Drove 1000km from Melbourne back to Sydney yesterday and it purred like a kitten on the boring Hume Hwy.

    This pdf for UK Megane 225 models might give you a starting point. There are some differences to the packages and options imported into Australia.

    Progress is fine, but it's gone on for too long.
