Thanks dec. Yes I am talking about a different car because i cant find cpmparison against the megane but can against the mini which is similar in that it does 0-100 in 6.3 and is 40hp shy of the Megane and only 250odd kg lighter yet laps the same.

I own both a m3 and the jcw coupe which has same specs as gp (near enough) and on paper it looks slower but I can assure you that unless the m3 is committed and wrung out the mini is as quick as if not quicker so I would money on the megane being the same as all the reviews on that show its an animal.
