  1. Welcome. Great choice!
  2. Yeah from my own personal experience and my mates : Long term ownership of VAG cars is a painful regretful experience. It doesn't look like BMW Minis have it much better (at least the R51 and R53 gens) ironically VAG/BMW/Mini owners are the first to have a dig at French cars πŸ€”
  3. I think you've got an itch to scratch haha. Most of the better competitors are manuals unfortunately. Fiesta ST and Pug 208 GTIs. As for autos that really leaves you with most of the VAG stable (polo, golf, scirocco) which I personally don't think are a match dynamically to a Clio 4. Other options would be the R56 Mini Cooper S, Nissan Pulsar SSS (don't), Veloster Turbo (eww) Abarth 595, and probably the Alfa Guiletta. Never driven most of those and never was inclined to be honest.
  4. Memorising timing belt service intervals πŸ˜‚
  5. Even in normal circumstances it can take a while. I remember test driving many 172s and 197s. It never panned out for whatever reason (usually crunching gearboxes). Both times I've bought Renault Sports have been more or less unintended. Just end up falling in love with the bloody things.
  6. As for the 197s maybe go try one out. The drivetrain and suspension differences are minor but are noticeable. Especially the shorter gearing and the stiffer suspension. As for limited editions have a look in the Clio 3 section. There is quite a bit of info on them there. We joke that there are almost more limited edition 200s combined than standard 200s in Aus. Generally they vary in what gear is included with the car. Drivetrain and suspension is largely same as standard 200. With seats, standard leathers (what I have in my Gordini) wear very well. Recaros side bolsters wear o
  7. Don't over look the Clio 3s. Cracking cars.
  8. yes a Clio 172/182 would be a good place to start
  9. Congrats. 2 RS in not a whole lot of time. Took me years to get to my second 😁 Do the cars feel much different driving back to back? Which do you prefer more
  10. Oh I don't miss vwwatercooled. so many tears πŸ˜‚
