In the quickest possible time I've ever made to decide to sell a car and replace it with a new one, today marked the day of taking delivery of my new Mk4 Clio. It has been a surreal few days and can't believe I have a Trophy sat on my drive! I don't know where to start, so let's do this chronologically... I took the tube across from work in Holborn to Watford this afternoon, a lengthy journey of 'OMG, OMG, OMG, I feel sick!' and then walked to the Renault dealership, taking my time and enjoying the weather. As I turned the corner from Morrison's (stopping in to buy some Soreen and Ribena for the journey home) there it was, valeters buzzing around it, and it looked absolutely spotless. I resisted inspecting it and wandered in to meet the legend that is the man who makes dreams come true for @nutnutwelshman. It was a very quick process, he sells cars without the faff - inspect, pay, off you go - it's so refreshing! Once in the car and navigating Watford to get on the M25 I hit shitty traffic pretty much all the way to my house in Kent. Once I got home I couldn't help but admire the thing. You simply cannot compare these to a Mk3, Mk2 etc. it's an entirely new breed... and I ABSOLUTELY love it. This has confirmed I've done the right thing as it's delivered on everything I was looking for. I feel VERY special in it and in the flesh it is truly awesome, especially in white. The driving experience is fab, it's quick, it's light on the steering, the cockpit surrounds you and all the creature comforts are only a fingertip away. What's even more bonkers is that the MPG was 42.9 in stop/start traffic all the way back home. When I started using the manual paddles in RS mode to fill up at Tesco after dinner, it has dropped to 37.1 I'm annoyed I can't drive it now till Saturday, I want to get used to it and have a bit more fun! As mentioned before, it has the Monitor which looks like quite good fun. One thing I wasn't happy about, however, was the limited space in the boot. It's laughable. Paired with really tinny speakers, I was a little disappointed, so whilst stuck in M25 traffic, I thought I'd glance down and check out what was written on the door speaker covers, was it this 'Bass Reflex' stuff they churn out? Well, I did have a chuckle and exclaimed 'f*cking hell!' when I saw it... It was clear the Renault Manager who had my car as his demo had no idea how to set up speakers, it now sounds sublime. The sub actually sits under the boot floor, so you lose about 70 litres of space I think. What a pleasant surprise though, I'm really made up! So overall, I'm very happy with how this has all worked out. Yes, it's cost me a fair bit, but my god, I was ready for this step up! Can't wait for the next meet!
