Have been a hot hatch fan for many years, including:
Daihatsu Charade (had a bigger capacity 1.5L, Cam, exhaust and intake work, suspension etc), 900kg was fun to chuck around
Multiple Nissan pulsars, last one ended up having an SR20VE (think nissan vtec) with cams, springs, retainers, wilwood brakes, etc
Astra turbo - ecu, intercooler, coilovers, wilwood brakes etc
EG Civic with full Integra Type-R drivetrain
So when i sold by 2002 Subaru STI for something else, i started looking around.
The Clio 200 looked to fit the bill with a 6spd box, decent power,
