ZoomJC Posted 1, August 2015 Report Share Posted 1, August 2015 Hey people, I remember registering on this site waaay back in 2011 when I first thought about buying a RS Megane 250 after going for one of the more memorable test drives I've done. Well, years down the track, I have finally grown out of my RX8 and bit the bullet to join the RenaultSport family. 3 kids under 10yo has forced my hand in buying a "sensible" car and after much deliberation, I picked the Clio RS200 over the Polo GTI because a) it is less "sensible" than the VW, b) it had more rear seat room for 2 child seats and a skinny 9 yo, and c) my distrust of dual clutch transmissions demanded that I get something with a 5 year warranty. The 1-month old demo with 500km on the clock was in the rather funky Liquid Yellow colour too, and the Cup chassis felt more planted than the Polo GTI on a vigorous drive up and down the Adelaide Hills. The less refined, but more vocal engine and exhaust also tickled my fancy and hopefully will make up for the loss of my manual transmission RWD love. So I shall be picking up my brand new toy sometime in the next week once the optional reverse sensors are fitted. Looking forward to this new ownership experience with French flair, but hopefully no reliability woes. Will be pouring through the forums for ownership tips and other interesting info - so thanks in advance for your collective wisdom! 5 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
