  1. I don't think any Aus spec cars had run flats. All have no spare or jack. Just a can of goo.
  2. Later 200's also have a USB slot and AUX cable input. Good luck with your search.
  3. Some 200's came with Recaro's. The only 197 that had Recaro was the R27 and they all did. 200 quicker steering rack, something like 10%. + 200 cup chassis. Stiffer than a 197. + 200 - most later ones had keyless entry, RS monitor, bluetooth for phone calls, music etc. + 200 different nose and diffuser treatment. Matter of opinion.... 200 has reach adjustment on steering wheel. + Different engine tune. Not that different IMO. + Check the specs on any car you look at carefully to see what it's got (or hasn't) Both great cars, but the 200 has the edge. Some 197's getting really cheap now. A lot of used Clio 3's have never had a belt change Allow $1100 for that.
  4. Just in case you overlooked these as mentioned above
  5. I taught one of my daughters in a Clio and have another one in progress. Good learner car with good visibility all around. If it's a Clio I'd go this https://www.carsales.com.au/private/details/Renault-Clio-2009/SSE-AD-5665941/?Cr=5 or this https://www.carsales.com.au/private/details/Renault-Clio-2012/SSE-AD-5610171/?Cr=9 I've owned an R27, 197 and 200. The R27 is super stiff. 197 stiff, 200 slightly more so. Not relying on the cars quoted spring/damper rates. Just going on my butt! My tip... the LY one in Adelaide. Good luck with it either way!
  6. Seriously, if this car was in Melb or Syd it'd be sold by now. If I didn't have 2 already I'd buy it!!!
  7. This one now below 15K and open to offers! Seriously good buying. https://www.carsales.com.au/cars/details/Renault-Clio-2012/SSE-AD-5610171/?_ga=2.179650532.1130964327.1537745760-1920457605.1528440475
  8. Just start a Koleos thread??
  9. Cheap to maintain. Basically an annual oil change and a belt every 4 years for about 1K. Tyres are cheap on the 17 inch rims. A very common size. Any half decent mechanic could do the oil but definitely go to a specialist for the belt. We can recommend them here depending where you live. You really ought to drive one though. They may not be your thing.
  10. Sorry...NFI. Mods are not my thing.
  11. Well for 15K you are open to any Clio 2 or a really good Clio 3. IMHO I'd go for a 3. They are the last of the NA hot Clio's and will be hold their value very well. There's 2 on carsales that stand out to me. This https://www.carsales.com.au/private/details/Renault-Clio-2012/SSE-AD-5610171/?Cr=8 or this https://www.carsales.com.au/private/details/Renault-Clio-2010/SSE-AD-5554065/?Cr=9 Both low klm and really nice spec and colour. If it was me I'd go the yellow one. The last year they were built (2012) a very collectable colour. Get it checked out (Adelaide people jump in here as to where) and if it's all good...BUY IT! Fly over and come back via the ocean road. With those low klm I'd be amazed if there were any issues. Very solid cars these. Just make sure it hasn't been in a serious accident. The only thing to factor in is a possible timing belt change at 100,000 klm or 4 years. Allow 1K. That's it! Shout out if you want to drive one. Check out the videos that I put together here https://clio3victoria.weebly.com/ And if that doesn't convince you... I can't help
  12. What's your budget? We can give a lot more specific advice with that in mind. BTW all the NA Clio's are awesome
  13. Welcome. A member here is selling this car. Might do a deal for you??? It's also in the forum sale section. https://www.carsales.com.au/private/details/Renault-Clio-2012/SSE-AD-5628960/?Cr=5

    CLIO SPORT 197

    Just checked out the ad. Looks good value if everything is ok. Price seems very fair as long as its been looked after. 8000 to 8500 is about what its worth imho.
