Re: Hello, I'm new :)
Newbie signing on....
We're currently in the process of selling a Megane to buy the wife a new car. We're considering all comers, but I think the 147 is the number one at the moment
Read a few of the guides so far, and it seems the car has a bad reputation, but unfairly so?
Only questions I have so far are around specs - what are the Lusso, T-spark etc? I'm assuming there are different specs, like GT, Sport, LX, but Italian style
Anyone have any links info to decipher the different variants
Oh - I'm already a lover of italian machines as I have a Ducati 749 and have not loved another bike quite so much (after 3 Suzuki's and a flirt with a yamaha
Hello and welcome.
As far as spec levels on the 147 are concerned there are Turismo and Lusso. The Lusso is the higher spec with alloys, climate control and so on. There is also the GTA which is the hot V6 engined 147 as well as a few special editions such as the Ti, Collezione and Ducati.
T-Spark refers to the engine which uses 2 spark plugs per cylinder and is available in 1.6 or 2.0 versions. You may also see Selespeed which is the semi-automatic gearbox system and was available with the 2.0 engine. (the GTA could be got as a selespeed too but it's quite rare here in the UK).
There's a few variations in the engines too as the 1.6 T-Spark was available as a 105bhp version in Turismo spec. That's even before we get to the diesels
Hope that helps and isn't too confusing.
Hard work never killed anyone.
That’s the trouble – I want to engage in something that has a little danger to it
