  1. I'll PM you with the problem list if you don't mind so you can review whether it makes sense to stay away from it or not.
  2. Short update! So I've organised an inspection to the first blue one on Vic. In retrospect, just by looking at the pictures alone I should have just moved on and not bother. Nevertheless I was quite attracted to the racing blue colour with the stripes. The result was quite disappointing needless to say, the inspection discovered various red flags that made me not want to get the car regardless if the owner is willing to do price drop or not. (Feel free to PM me if you're interested in knowing the result, but I don't think I want to show it here in public) I'll pm you.
  3. Thanks for the help guys! 👍 I think I'll consider both models 182 cup and non cup as they are available here in Vic. I'll start looking and sending inquiries. Will also ask here if I have any further questions.
  4. Ah ok, in that case, would 6-7k be fair offer for the blue one in Vic do you think? Hmm I didn't know that, the thing I value is feeling of lightness. E.g I test drove a GT86, even though it's clearly not as powerful as WRX, you can feel it's light, and faster than it actually is. Do you think this also applies to the Clios? Would there be a discernible different that you can spot without jacking the car up? Perhaps I just need to check the VIN
  5. Greetings to fellow enthusiasts, I'm in the market for a fun sports hatchback under 10k. The Renault Sport Clio comes to my mind immediately. I currently have these models in mind: 182 Cup (First Preference) https://www.carsales.com.au/private/details/Renault-Clio-2005/SSE-AD-5627056/?Cr=0 (VIC example) https://www.carsales.com.au/private/details/Renault-Clio-2005/SSE-AD-5464539/?Cr=1 (WA example) 182 Sport https://www.carsales.com.au/private/details/Renault-Clio-2005/SSE-AD-5611844/?Cr=0 (NSW example) https://www.carsales.com.au/private/details/Renault-Clio-2004/SSE-AD-5301632/?Cr=1 (NSW example) I've read the paper and the specifications between 182 Sport and Cup. But then I don't think the paper tells a complete story. I probably won't track the car anytime soon if I get one. In this case, should I just get the standard 182 Sport? What I'm looking for is basically agileness and fun, don't need 100% track ready car. Lastly, in terms of pricing, are the 182 Cup nowadays worth almost 10k to be fair? I rather save couple thousands for maintenance and consumables. My other alternative to Clio, is the Ford Fiesta XR4. I probably won't be getting Megane 225, GTIs (Polo or Golf) as coming from WRX background, I kind of miss instant throttle response. Don't really like turbo lag, e.g the car is powerless under 3500k then suddenly things start to happening only after that. What do you guys think? Would love to hear views from someone who has driven / owned the Clios or even better other hot hatches as well? Merci beaucoup madame et monsieur..
