    When you fall out of love with the clio....

    Isn't the next Clio RS a 1.6 Turbo? - EVO - Should be a good, strong & focused engine to match the chassis(as we have been longing for) ... with further tuning potential? !!!:thumbup:

    Top gear June 26th

    Its Top Gear... they like to be provocative... how many pages have they created on this site? The Mag says the Clio is a top car... The Evo video on the tube of the CS3 says that the Clio is best. There is a good 2 part German vid on Youtube comparing the Fiat with the Twingo & the...

    Xenon Auto level. On going.

    Sorry about locked photos... I ended up going to the dealers... was the rear sensor... Cost me less than getting it diagnosed & fixing myself. Lookers, Chelmsford... Not all dealers are Stealers!

    A positive dealer experience!

    I had booked my 197 in for diagnostics for the Xenon lights not leveling... Quoted £47 to diagnose. I had looked at both, Front & rear sensors myself and as they both looked fine i.e. no broken arms... I needed a proper diagnosis b4 I bought the wrong one. I can fit it myself. After 1/2 an...

    Xenon Auto level. On going.

    A re-occuring post but never seem to see solution... My lights started off being too high, but are now too low... which is better as I can drive at night without blinding people! Previous threads that I searched seemed to dispute wether there were one or two sensors... After a lot of...

    Stooopid Xenons

    I haven't found the one on the front yet, not looked properly no ramps... but there is definately one on the back passanger side. I'm guessing it is my front one that is wrong cos the rear one looks fine.

    Definitive list of must have cleaning products.

    I'm old skool & a lazy bu9ger... Personaly, I pressure wash to get most of the grit off. Use AutoGlym shampoo conditioner with two buckets & a microfibre to give it a good clean. Then AutoGlym Aquawax to finish off. No need to dry off... also means no drip stains to polish out. A...

    Alpha GTA?

    Adrian, that was the pic I was trying to post... A bit Seat Leon... But it was nice! It didn't seem so bug eyed as the Mito generally is from the front & back! Any way... aren't Clio Sports great! ... if they had enough power & torque to match the quality of the chassis!

    Alpha GTA?

    my links didn't work... Was what I was going to say... The Mito just looks so crap from the front... well generally really, but this did look quite nice. Oh I dunno... may be it was VBH taking a world exlusive out out for a test run... And I chose to totally ignor her! Damm!

    Alpha GTA?

    Gearbox Advice.

    My gearbox seems to work fine now... Though I am thinking of selling... not enough power/torque for me... It handles like a dream... they should have put a turbo on to match the chassis... I guess it's down to marketing & insurance etc! May be should have done a Turbo as well as the Cup...
