    Noob - hi all, glad to be a member

    Welcome, and I wish I still lived in Sydney, better still Wollongong. There are a few roads near you I used to tear through in my old 68 Cooper S that I know the Clio 4 is just perfect for. I do miss THAT pie shop Enjoy

    I worked in car audio for 20+ years. Nearly 2 of them in Perth, but that was a long time ago. I recently went looking for an installer to do a few things for me here in Adelaide/ And it wasn't easy to find someone I would trust. I started by doing a bit of a call around to thin down the list. Then went to each one left and did a bit of an interview, looked at their work ( the installers own car is a great place to start) and finally found one guy I felt would be OK. There aren't that many good audio installers around, most guys make their money doing parking sensors, dash and reversing cameras these days. I don't know who's who in Perth these days, but Alberts never were that good, and it was very hard for anyone to compete against them ( partly because the parent company was also an importer of various brands) I would start by looking for Focal dealers, I know the distributor and he is careful about who he lets have the product.

    Welcome. Sorry I can't help you with a specific mechanic to inspect a vehicle for you, but welcome to the forum. And hope to see you cruising the Hills sometime soon. RS cars are made for the roads around here

    Query: Clio RS 200

    If its post 2014, there is no timing belt, its a chain I bought 2015 RS200 Cup 2nd hand at the beginning of this year. It had 32k on the clock. I have now done another 10k, so just had its first service since I purchased it It has been faultess, a joy to drive. The only issue I have with it is keeping the tank full. Its a small tank. Other than checking its service history, I dont see anything in particular you need to look out for when buying one of these 2nd hand. The previous owner did mess up the exhaust but I have that solved now. If you happen to buy one through this group I am certain you will get one that has been well looked after

    I’m tempted to do the same, but just a little too far for me

    HI all Just introducing myself Live in the Adelaide Hills surrounded by some fantastic driving roads Have a patchy motorshop history back in Sydney, and never really got back into it when the family moved here 10 years ago Always owned manual cars, but the body isnt what it used to be, the left knee is very dodgy, so at the advice of Drs and the wife, i have been told to update the old manual pocket rocket into something automatic Which brings me here. Will be picking up a 2015 Clio RS200 Cup in about a week. I figure if you have to drive an auto it may as well be one that has paddles Anyway I am here to research stuff about the car itself, and also to find some local contacts. I know the right car bits/service places in Sydney, but have zero local knowledge here in Adelaide Will ad some pics of the car after I collect it
