    Afternoon all,

    Not written one of these for a while, just purchased a Clio RS200 Cup Full Fat(I think its referred to as?) as a replacement for my old MINI. Never owned a french car before and picked this up on the spur of a moment when I needed a car and it seemed to tick a lot of the boxes.

    I will try and get some better pictures but its a 2010 car, 44k on the clock and seems to be a full service history(no mention of cambelt which concerns me a little). It has the cup pack fitted without the recaros or spoiler but the luxurys of keyless, cruise and auto wipers/lights.
    I am looking forward to having a NASP car again, these seem to get rave reviews from various journalists so I am hoping it lives up to expectations(it's already been nicknamed baguette by various people..)

    It’s not a “cup” but has the cup pack. There’s not so much a full fat with the mk3, it came
    Across from the mk2 boys as they’re a more options with the mk3’s.

    That aside welcome and enjoy the stay :smile: More pics are much needed :french:

    However needs silver badges :silverdiamond:

    Welcome along. Enjoy the car. As you suggest would be good to check that the cam belt has been changed.

    Thanks for the welcomes guys, should I ask what the black/silver diamond is all about? I thought it was the previous owner painting the diamonds on the car?

    Any suggestions how to check if the cambelt has been changed?

    Somebody here started a light hearted campaign to ban the sale of black diamonds & it's been running as a bit of banter on here for a few months. Not to be taken TOO seriously.:silverdiamond:

    Welcome in mate. Looks a cracking car you've found. As said the full fat thing is a mark 2 only description.

    Mind you Colin, I've never had much respect for authority.

    BOO! We do accept those who realise the error of their ways & remove those horrible black diamonds from their cars. Don't cover it up, let it shine brightly.
