Hi everyone I'm picking up my 2002 172 Clio tomorrow it'll be my first fwd car after owning a mx5 and a e30, I'm looking forward to it, is there a weekly Renault/Clio catch up in Melbourne? It would be good to meet and talk to some people that have owned their clios for a while, here's pics of my old cars

Welcome mate! Some nice cars you've had before - that E30 is hnnnnnggh! Love those wheels!

 

What're your plans for the Clio?

I tend to get carried away until the only time I can drive the car is on the track ...

 

Ha ha ... some people (for example Matt ^) deal with that issue by having two Clio's.

 

Two you say... :news:

 

Tobias, I bet they did, would look great though, 16's?

I had an E30 too which was sold and replaced by the 182. My E30 is the snail variant with M40 1.8L engine though - nothing to brag about :)

 

What kind of clutch adjustment did you do? The clutch engagement point on my car is rather high so I'm interested in bringing it to a lower point if possible.

The m42 engine is nothing to brag about either haha, if you stick your head underneath and push the clutch all the way in you will see a link with a ball joint on either end, this link is adjustable, un lock the nut with a 10mm open ender spanner and then pop off one of the ends of the link with a screw driver so you can lengthen the link, clutch is so much nicer now
