    Mystery noise - no solution?

    Ok, this is driving me nuts. I had a noise on my Clio 200 Cup. It sounded exactly like a knackered thrust release bearing, but went away when I pressed the clutch. So couldn't be that. Thoughts tunrned to knackered input shaft bearing. Changed gearbox and clutch for a good 2nd hand box and new...

    Possible gearbox problem?

    I have a 60 reg Clio 200 Cup on 55k. I think it may have a gearbox problem - essentially there is a varying rolling 'bearing' noise when warm. It varies with revs and is sometimes there, sometimes not, only noticeable in 6th and sometimes very noisy. It sounds exactly like a dodgy clutch...

    Bargain for anyone who wants to rally

    I'd estimate this cost in excess of 30k to build, and is an absolute bargain for anyone who wants to start out in rallying. Not my car by the way, just thought I'd flag it up!

    Red Clio 200 in Penrith

    Spotted at Roosters Cafe in Penrith - was that you? On the downside there is someone in a white 200 very similar to mine, but with a trophy spoiler, people keep mistaking my car for his/hers - I don't think they have a good reputation!

    Hi all - I can't open any posts in the for sale forum, I get a message saying I don't have sufficient privileges. I'm a new member - is there a time frame I have to be a member before I can open the posts? I can only see the titles at the moment. Thanks Chris

    Hello from Cumbria

    Hi all, ive just swapped my 62 reg Skoda Yeti (which is a great car by the way) for a 60 plate Clio 200 Cup in white, now that my commute has changed and I don't need to carry prams etc around. First impressions? Goes like a rocket, faster than my historic race car and very similar to my 205...

    K&N Apollo experience?

    Hi all, I'm a new Clio 200 Cup owner (I love it by the way) and have been offered a K&N Apollo in as new condition by a workmate, who had it fitted to his wife's 197 F1. Couplel of questions - is it compatible with a 200? (I assume so). Is it worth fitting? (I'm not fussed about engine noise...
