  1. This could be a really good buy. It's advertised as a 197 but it's actually a Clio 200 2010 trophy you can tell by the front bumper. It also has the much sought after Recaro's. No 197's had those except the R27. You are in Vic but you might have to travel to get the right car.Tell him you'll buy it if he ships it to Vic. I got free delivery from Perth on my white one. https://www.gumtree.com.au/s-ad/bundall/cars-vans-utes/2009-renault-clio-c85-sport-197-silver-6-speed-manual-hatchback/1216962023
  2. Debatable.... They're good if you like 1990's manky interiors
  3. @Chison007When I start typing a name, a box opens up with the user name. Click it, and boom there it is. Maybe it doesn't work on your device??
  4. Looks like a nice example you got there. Well done! The non-limited edition Clio 3's run on 17" rims. IE: 215/45/17. You might find a set from a wrecker or someone on here. I believe the ride is a touch better, and at 3kg lighter per corner should feel pretty good too!
  5. Only 13 cars on carsales at the moment so it's slim pickings. I'd say this one https://www.carsales.com.au/cars/details/Renault-Clio-2012/SSE-AD-5851951/?Cr=8 or this one https://www.carsales.com.au/cars/details/Renault-Clio-2012/SSE-AD-5610171/?Cr=3 The yellow one could have an incomplete history so check that out. You'll need to check that the synchros are OK. They can fail if abused. Other than that, they are solid cars. Timing belts are due every 4 years. Allow 1K for that. Make sure you get a thorough pre purchase check by someone who knows what to look for. Be prepared to travel for the right car. Most of us end up buying interstate. You'll love it!
  6. All 200's are on the cup suspension. Both bought used. The red one had 6000 klm on it. Paid about 25.5 K in 2014. The white one had 25,000 klm in 2016. Paid 19K. Which means the asking prices have flat lined or nudged up a touch. Interesting. Being self employed has it's advantages re tax.
  7. Can confirm the gear boxes are completely different.
  8. No idea. Someone?? Anyone??
  9. I've got 2 Clios, both low klm (under 40K) so I'm not the best to talk about synchros. I was chatting to my mechanic the other day and he reckons the synchros go because of driver abuse. IE trying to change gear too fast. Some cars have high klm with no issues. Others do. Since they are the same car, I'm inclined to agree. It's better to drive it more sympathetically.
  10. Buying a car you don't particularly like?! What could possibly go wrong? You need to find a tight twisty road where power becomes less relevant and handling is more important. Looking forward to your review (I think )
  11. Have you driven a Clio 3 before?
  12. Getting in and out of the Recaro's can be an issue for some. The fix for munching synchros is learning to drive a manual properly (now I'm going to get in trouble...)
  13. I find long drives are fine. I've got Recaro's and find them good on long drives. Stop start traffic could get annoying. If it's a straight forward drive to work it'll be fine. I daily mine but it's not far.
