    Just thought I would introduce myself to the forum!

    My name is Todd and I'm a first time clio owner. I picked up an R27 (number 329/500) in ultra red a few days ago and so far i'm loving it!

    I do have a question which hopefully one of you will be able to help me with, I have tried to search the forum for an answer but I can't seem to find it.

    So this morning I was driving to work and got stuck sat in stationary traffic and all of a sudden the engine waring light started flashing... as soon as the traffic started to move and get up to speed the engine light stopped flashing. Is this something I need to worry about and get checkout at a garage or is this a fairly common thing with these cars?

    Thanks in advance.

    First of all welcome to the forum and congrats on the purchase.

    Sounds like you've got a good car and in the best colour (I might be biased :grinning:)

    I must say I have had this happen on mine possibly 3 times in my 4 years of ownership, did a bit of searching myself and found a few people have had the same issue but it wasn't really anything serious.

    The last time mine did it was on a warm day and in traffic, just flashed for a few seconds then disappeared. Personally I didn't do anything and the car has been fine however there are a lot of people more knowledgeable than me on here who might be able to give you an idea of what it might have been to put your mind at ease.

    I can't remember what I read about it as it was quite a while ago but sure it wasn't anything to worry about.

    i also had that once or twice in my 4 year ownership and was a simple mis fire- but nothing needed changing or repairing just a misfire. only real way to know is to reset all your codes then wait for it to happen again.

    The bloke that had it before me had some stuff done a K-tec like a remap and had K-tec put on one of their decats and back boxes so it sounds fairly throaty and pops and bangs a little. It also has Bilstein dampers fitted. In an ideal world I would have bought a standard car but this one was at to good of a price to miss out on.

    Welcome to the forum, Todd! Great choice in an R27! Good to hear your mind has been put at ease about the engine light - just to add to that, I had that happen once in my ownership, but nothing developed from it.

    Get some photos up!
