  1. Make sure the car is cold when first driving it. A warm gearbox hides bad shifting. Otherwise engine mounts, seat and steering wheel wear. If you can check the ball joints and timing belt and water pump history
  2. Flame suit is on.. Kia Cerato GT. All the doors and turbo engine and good enough handling for a casual track day. Annddd many are still in warranty.......
  3. Did it have a flash tune? Most off the shelf tunes are not 100% perfect
  4. That was a good price for the car and the mods it's got. Welcome
  5. Shoot autoparis a call. He sells aftermarket stuff that he believes is good quality. If you have rs tuner. Do a log of your long term fuel trims while driving on the freeway. If they go up and down crazy amounts it's usually a sign the O2 is also buggars.
  6. I have been looking at these pay for subscribing obd 2 services. They seem okay but cannot find one review of someone using them with a Renault. Carly is the other version I was looking at. Problem is that I am unsure if they can really diagnose well enough with the Renault's. I have a generic OBD2 with torque app that can clear codes and do basic stuff but does not explain deeper as to what is wrong. I did find this obd scanner which does have Renault reviews and can do what Renault CLIP can do. It's more pricyand I am unsure if it works with other cars. http://www.diagnos

    Fukn skid machine!!!!
  8. Yep pretty much. 197s can be had for 6k or less so if you plan to keep it and you are okay with maintaining it then you will enjoy it. The cloth seats are pretty good also if you don't want recaros. I did forget about the timing belt and water pump 4-5 year interval costing about 1200 to get done also.
  9. All honesty though. When you push it hard down a twisty road and you can give some serious machinery a very very good run for their money and even embarrass them, you do think it's the best car in the world. This is why I keep mine despite the ton of money I have spent on it. When checking out a car make sure the gearbox shifts nicely. When it's cold it will be stiff and very crap, but once warm it should be smooth at full thottle. Then get the rest of the car checked out if you are keen on it.
  10. 1000s can be gone very quickly on the Clio 3 sadly. If you wanted a cheap entry and wanted to drive it and not modify it, the 197 is okay. Bear in mind if it has low KMs that it likely has not had anything major fixed yet. It will probably need to be replaced in the next few years as they are getting older also. Gearbox rebuild is 3k Ball joints wearing out is 1.5-2k AC which seems to depend on the car, is also 2k for a condenser replacement. If the blower goes 600-1k Manifold cracking can be expensive depending which route you take. I daily drive my clio 197
  11. If you are planning to use it as a daily, I would recommend against it. For a weekend car they give you great thrills. They are expensive to run and maintain I must warn you outside of regular servicing. Get a 200 and don't waste your money on a 197 unless it's the r27 as the regular 197s value is shit and they are very hard to sell second hand, as most people want a 200 with recaros or one of the limited editions. Things that are very likely to need money. Engine mounts Clutch fluid change Gearbox synchros wear out due to poor driving Gear box flui
