Staticc Posted 8 February Report Share Posted 8 February Hey All, Late last year I purchased a silver 197 from WA. I was looking for another hot hatch as I am a bit of a nut for trying new things. Also I like the idea swapping between 2 cars, so this 197 came up for a reasonable price and is now complementing my R53 Mini Cooper S. It managed to pass ID inspection with only the tint having to be removed after installing a stock air box and 2 new tyres. I have been driving it to work lately and liking the handling. It has a few issues as it’s a high mileage example, but just means I have to work on it a bit. You don’t see too many of these on the road. The issues I’ve been having are 3rd is crunching, and it likes to kangaroo more than expected. I’m planning on fitting a larger o-ring and getting a MAP stay to try and fix this, and searching options on the gearbox. I hope to get it on the track too and have as much fun as possible with it. I hope to talk and see you guys around in SA and learn a bit more about the Clio platform. Here are some pics I have taken through my short ownership, I’ll endeavour to take some better ones.
