    My problems with javelin came from when I lost a wheel on my megane at brandhatch, wasn't even a javelin day but I was approached by 4 seperate people 3 of which I didn't know saying that javelin where using me as an example in briefings as "poor driving, maintenance and attitude" the attitude was because I didn't cry about it and had a picture next to my car. The maintenance was because I apparently never checked my wheel bolts which wasnt true (bimec studs failed and bimec tensile testing refusing to test them confirmed this along with 5 people in Europe with same issue) and the driving was because I apparently was chasing times but hey 55s at brands means I must be shocking (my phone is always thrown in glove box or arm rest out of sight)

    I contacted them and they denied all of it and offered me some vouchers which I told them to keep and since then not done a day with them.

    Unfortunately she's up for sale chaps, I just don't use her enough to warrant her sitting on the drive 360 days a year

    It is a shame it's a mega car but having a one trick pony always makes it the 1st to potentially be sold.

    Shame to see your going to be selling it. One of my favourite Clio's out there but completely understandable why your doing it

    Looks like its got a lot of interest but yes its a major shame, it was always going to be a track/weekend car but even then I've not maganed to drive it anywhere near as much as I would like and just cannot warrant it sitting there. I do however have a replacement coming for this and the golf that will put a smile on my face

    This makes things all the better. Great to see you've got your old car back, but it's a shame it doesn't look like it used to! What's your plans for it? To get it back to what it was like?

    Very interesting to hear why you are swapping your meg'd clio for a megane given that you have a daily? Has the clio been sold?
