    Hey

    New to the site, was told about it through somone who comes where I work.
    All I can say is glad he did, looks a lot better than other's ive looked at regarding the clio's...

    Anyway, I got my clio last week, and so far pleased. Coming from a vee-dub background, i surprised everyone when I turned to the french.... but I'm quite impressed with build quality and drive,(so much that i bought it lol) plus loved having no turbo lag!
    Few worrys have been put to bed after checking on here, dodgy when its cold, and the glovebox sags, both I believe to be common problems on these cars, and nothing really to worry about.

    Anyway heres the wee-beasty

    I think its just a standard 197, if the cup suspension is stiffer than what this is, then tbh, I'm glad i dont have it.:f1team07: (i think i dont anyway..) But my god it hangs on in the corners.:jase:

    anyway, just thought I'd say hi, no doubt i'll be floating round on the forum

    :smile:

    yeah they're awesome! My 'dubber' mates take the P, but I dont care! (ive still got my 89 polo 'loon so im still in the "scene" lol)

    Not really got any special plans for it: gloss black the diffuser and grills, black mirrors, maybe get the roof vinyled, red calipers and gunmetal the alloys :smile:

    I knew it was french when I bought it, so was expecting a lot worse, but touch wood, seems to be a solid motor :smiley:
