    How to spot a rs200 cup?

    Maybe it's one of these (see link below. 2010 Trophee) but with a different set of wheels. IE: an early 200 sans keyless entry and start button. I'm tipping the black one above is a 2010 Trophee model. https://www.drive.com.au/motor-reviews/renault-clio-rs-200-cup-trophee-20100806-11mox

    Buy this car! Hang out for a set of used Recaro's to fit later on. https://www.carsales.com.au/private/details/Renault-Clio-2012/SSE-AD-5185843/?Cr=11 Or this. https://www.carsales.com.au/private/details/Renault-Clio-2012/SSE-AD-5322550/?Cr=12

    How to spot a rs200 cup?

    Looks like a 200 but it's got a 197 interior, except for the bluetooth. Weird. Another test you can do. The 200 steering has adjustable reach and rake. 197 is rake only. The steering was sharpened up on the 200. Not sure how to test that. You'd need to take it to someone such as Renotech (google them) to check the chassis set up to confirm. IE shocks/springs are different on a 197 vs 200. They would know what to look for. It could have been a weird one made with whatever was in the parts bin at the time of manufacture. Maybe an early 200 before the keyless entry??

    ...but no keyless entry?????!!!! Where's the start button??? 200's don't have ignition switch!!

    Hmmm no. 200 is better than a 197. It looks like a 197 tricked up to look like a 200. Caution!

    How to spot a rs200 cup?

    You'll have to check the build or compliance plate. Sticker in the glove box will tell you too. All clios had the cup suspension. The best Clio's to buy are the 200's with Recaro seats. Low klm examples are getting harder to find but they do pop up. I'd keep an eye on the market for a while to get a feel for whats going on. If you see a good one, get it inspected and buy it if its any good. Clio 3 section has threads on this topic.

    Where does it say it's a 197? Carsales ad says 2009 197.

    That ad looks wrong. That car looks like a 2012 model. I've got the same car but with Recaros. Its not a 197 unless its had major mods to the diffuser and front bumper! And new rims too 😁 Edit, had another look. Im really confused. It looks like a 197 interior with the key start. But it has bluetooth, a feature of the 200.

    Crossing over from VTEC to RS?

    If you want to stick with NA there's always the Clio 2 and 3. Just sayin'

    Don't go to the dark side. Here's a cool video for a bit of NA goodness. The second half is better when they get rid of the awful music. Wish mine sounded like this:

    Congrats on the new car! You can ignore all the misery below. No need to worry because yours is well and truly out of warranty. Not that you'll need it coz everyone knows the Clio3 is a very reliable unit!
