Just bought a 73 plate Megane Etech Techno version and loving it.
I've a few newbie questions though.

I presume I can't use my existing USB A drive to play mp3s, so will need to buy a USB C drive for the Megane.

I have tried to find the paint code (Flame Red), but nothing on the driver door pillar stickers (VIN number removed). Where is it please?

What are best settings to eek out the most range? Getting about 160 miles on 100% full charge currently, though only charging to 80% max to help the battery longevity.

Your paint code is the code beneath the QR code - BIXPA (flame red).

We have ceramic grey launch edition and have just ordered a Chipex paint kit for our new Megane.

We bought a pack of these adapters from Amazon (if the link below doesn't work), search for ASESAILOR USB C to USB Adapter 3Pack :

Thanks for the paint code answer, I didn't know what that code was.
Decided to get a smallish 64gb USB C drive for £11. I didn't want the drive to stick out too much from the socket.

64Gb is their suggested maximum. I bought an unbranded one that is OK as well, and we've got over a thousand MP3's and FLAC on the stick, with loads of space to spare.

On Amazon the stick I have (which has a swivel connector for USB C and USB A) can be found by searching 64GB USB C Flash Drive, KOOTION Dual 2-in-1 OTG Type C 3.0 Metal Rugged Swivel Thumb Drive Memory Stick Jump Drive Photo Stick for Android Smartphone Tablet Mac PC Computers MacBook Laptop(Black)

Download Audiowagon from the Play store (in your Megane) as this manages your collection much more efficiently than the basic built in media player Renault give you.

You'll need to make sure the stick is formatted as FAT32 (not FATex), as again Renault (and Audiowagon) state you must use this format.

Lots of detail here:

I saw that design and model, but thought I'd go with a brand I know.
Thanks for the heads up on Audiowagon, will download and use that.
