I am a bit late writing this as I bought liquido200's ah, liquid yellow 2012 Clio 200 in early September.
My first new car was a Peugeot 205 Gti and the Clio reminds me of a modern version of that. I have just sold my Mk5 Golf Gti (bought it new, apr ecu remap, full apr exhaust, etc) which was a beautiful car and my 07 Elise which was a lot of fun. The Clio seems like mix of the 2! Hope I made the right decision. I have also spent the last 2 years restoring my 83 Alfasud Ti QV with a mate. We stripped it totally inside and out and it had no rust and it is now in remarkable condition after much work doing nearly everything but paint.
I am really enjoying the Clio. Love the suspension, gearbox, brakes and seats. Clearly they did not spend much on the stereo (what a piece of 💩).
Bought a set of stock wheels from a forum member and have put on yoko ad08rs.
Next step will be exhaust- Akra seems popular but keen to hear in person if possible. Seems to be some keen members in Brisbane so hopefully I will catch up. Keen to learn where to buy and have it installed in Brisvegas.
Lots of great info on this forum.
