    Hi there, I'm Dan and Currently drive a 2000 plate VW Polo as a daily and looking to huuuugely upgrade this to a clio 197 in some format (ideally r27 f1 cup buuut depends on cash as always!) as I've always hankered after one, they seem really fun little cars with fair reliability and reasonable running costs as a daily so I can keep my toy garaged :wink: Quick question how do I pay up to become a full member so I can view for sale threads as id ideally want a members car as I appreciate enthusiast owned cars are more often looked after properly!! appreciate any help guys and look forward to exploring the forum

    Welcome along. Good luck in your search for the right car. Get a good one & you'll love it. Maybe not the fastest, but handling is sublime.

    Welcome along Dan, fill your boots with all the knowledge on here! I'd have thought up to £6k for a really good 197 F1.

    Tweaked Evo X 360. So not expecting clio to blow me away on power or handling but with it being so much smaller and still good handling with a nit of punch too id hope itd be a really fun car. Ive heard theyre really well set up for cornering and good chassis etc. Plus NA will be a nice difference to turbo in a performance car i think.plus im really really hoping theyll be more reliable and a bit cheaper to run whilst still being fun and capable.

    Nice! I agree that n/a will be an alternative experience to the turbo. Just enjoy grabbing it by the scruff of the neck & revving it! In my case the Clio is the fun car v my Merc cabriolet daily. One for cruising, one for hooning.
