  1. Wow! Hole in the engine sounds like its thrown a conrod; has anyone ever heard of a Clio IV doing this? Hopefully the repair won't be too expensive...

    New Clio Owner

    Kenworth called, they need the turbo back for their 15 litre diesel...
  3. ^bonnet needs to be CF... only 1800euros from Renaultsport!
  4. Choice as! (sorry, couldn't help myself)
  5. ^the voice of reason! +1 for a Clio as a first car - probably a 197/200
  6. Do love a good SAAB... have owned a couple of 900 Turbos back in the day. Have you considered a 197? Newer (some would say better) and a bit more grown up than a 172/182 and not much more $$.
  7. I believe Renault did some 265 Cups with leather and flogged them as Limited Editions or Cup+, does yours have leather?
  8. Some of the speed cameras on the Hume use number plate recognition technology to determine your average speed, and then book you! So slowing down for the camera won't really help...
  9. If it is brake debris sticking to the paint, it may take a couple of days for the material to oxidise sufficiently to make it visible, hence why it reappeared whilst not being driven.
  10. Awesome colour, wish my 197 was FRB....
  11. rye172... pretty easy. the only 172 down this part of the world! nicknames i have? my surname is Pope so i normally get Popey though i have a friend who refers to me as "the Pontiff". as my name is Glenn, another mate calls me Glenn-N with emphasis on the spare N, as i have been known to make a point of telling people i have 2 Ns in my name when they are writing it down
  12. thanks for that. i'll have to hold out for some prices before i commit. gotta save for some wheels arriving in a couple of months
  13. G'day Emu what sort of price are we looking at for an XXL polo? plus what sort of keyrings can you get; are they F1 specific or renault diamond? cheers Glenn
  14. A polo shirt sounds good it would need to be metallic red though
