    Hi! I'm Paul from Cornwall. Just picked up a black 197 F1! I've lost count of how many 172/182s I've had but this is the first 197 for me. I've got an E46 M3 as well but that's up for sale at the moment.

    The F1 looks like a clean one and it's been in the same family from new, first on my list is cambelt etc. It'll be a weekend car and I'm hoping to get to some track days in this year. Looking forward to upgrading a few bits so any advice welcome as I've been out of the renaultsport loop for a few years now!

    I see photobucket has gone now so how do I post up pictures on here?

    Cheers

    Well hello there Paul.

    My name is Paul, I have an R27 and an M3 in silver grey, with shadowline trim, CSLs (it's a CS) and yeah... that's all pretty impressively similar! Honestly not joking!

    :smiley:

    Great purchase with the Clio, they're absolutely fantastic cars. Hope you enjoy it.

    Why are you selling that gorgeous M3?
