    RS 200 Raider #3/50
    As some of you may know i drove a Clio GT DCI with a brilliant spec, The GT was a fantastic car, but i have always wanted an RS so when i found out insurance was becoming realistic on one the search began,

    After searching and searching for the right one that could compare to the GT in terms of spec, i came across a RS 200 Raider 3/50 in Stealth Grey with the TomTom, but it was 250 mile away so after nearly two weeks me, my brother and my dad had the time to travel from Teesside to Essex to go see it and when we got there it was stunning, so after purchasing it we set off back home managed to get 35.8 MPG out of it on the journey home only using half a tank which i was very pleased about even coming from a diesel.

    About the Raider:

    Stealth Grey Paint
    18" Interlagos Wheels
    Full Leather Interior
    Leather Recaros
    TomTom
    iPod Connectivity
    Bluetooth
    Cup Chassis
    Carbon Badges And Bullets
    aswell as the rest of the 200 usual spec

    14,000 on the clock the previous owner had only done 2000 mile in the last year,

    feels very solid and composed
    gearbox selects gears easily no crunchiness

    a couple of images from the journey home

    the colour is fantastic with so many different colours when caught at different angles with Blues, Greens, Purples, Bronzes all mixed in there, photographs dont do it any justice,

    As for mods im still very undecided so we shall see what the future holds but for now i will just enjoy it for what it as it is absolutely fantastic out of the box i couldn't be happier with it

    I had a look at that LY 200 in EH Middlesbrough it looked very nice but the window price was quite high. I've notice the price come down over the last few weeks mind. Looks about right now I would say.
    My mate text me today saying he saw a Grey Raider in Redcar yesterday whilst out with his daughter! He said it looked superb and that he couldn't believe how good it looked in the flesh.
