I'am off that weekend, i might be able to make an appearance. Meet some new faces.
I am fairly sure I'll be able to make it.
Fairly sure I'll be working that weekend
Should be able to make it if I'm not moving house.
Where have you been, not seen you for ages.
I know was meant to message you to see if you fancied a meet up some time but kept forgetting.
Defected to the VX side haven't you
I'll try and make this. I've not been out in too long
I've just edited the title and poll. I should've changed it to an event but I'm tired so a poll will do
I have, I do miss to clio from time to time though.
Quite a few now

You lot need sectioning
Even Brett has a vxr, although he's selling it next week.
Whats he getting instead of it.
Getting a company 320D, doing to many miles to have a car of his own really.
Is there going to be anyone in a Clio on this meet? I might have to come in the Clio at this rate to keep the rate of Clio's up.
Might pop along as it's been years, but it won't be in the Clio, too much like hard work!
Blast from the past!
As James says, blast from the past! Amazed you still have the Clio after all these years. M140i looks awesome too, what a garage.
This'll be like a 2011 time warp at this rate.
Ed and Jon might be coming as well.
It's certainly been a while!
We can't believe it either, it's still going strong, just need to use it a bit more! M140 is our sensible day to day car, moved away from Renaults as the Megane Sport touring concept didn't look like it would be made a reality anytime soon Enjoying RWD though, but BMW have pulled a blinder making these M-lites, it's clearly a gateway drug to getting an M3/4!
I feel like I should come in the civic.
I'll see if I can convince my mate to bring one of his beamers too lol
Got to have at least one Clio
@Adam93 bringing the GP along ?

This is only cliosport.net in name don't you know. Nobody drives clios any more haha
I absolutely love the M135/M140's, such a nice overall package.
Lol when that's your sensible car! What power is the Clio running these days?
The m-lites are great, like miniature GT cars! Doesn't drive or handle like a hot hatch, but a great all rounder.
Not dyno'd it for ages. Was 349bhp with cams, removed those though and Paul mapped it again. Think it was around 330. Needs a suspension rebuild really, it's not ready for the track again. Might struggle this year with the baby though lol.
Yeah more of a 3 series with the back chopped off really, that's what they feel like inside too.
Clio's nippy then haha!
haha, in hindsight I should probably have spent a bit more and got a 335d X-drive touring!
It's still nippy mate! More impressively it's still running, dare I say it, without issue
335d Touring is my dream daily. Awesome cars. My Dad had one a few years ago.
Yeah they are brilliant cars, but they were more than I wanted to spend. The extra space would have been handy, but I'll just get a roof box!
I'll try to come to this! Haven't been on here In a while
Looking forward to this

Thought it was about time we discuss the route.
Anybody got any routes they'd recommend?
Also let's think of a central place for everybody on the way towards Wales where we can meet, a services etc.
Chester services is pretty central?
Might come along to this, Depends what state the car is in at the time lol
12th of march mate.
But what kind of time are we meeting and how far do people want to go?
Yeah just spotted it in the title, I clicked a direct link and didn't spot the thread title lol.
I'd say we meet early-ish, say 9/9:30, at Chester Services like James mentioned.
As for how far, depends on suggestions for the route. I'm thinking some nice driving roads and places for photos and food etc in North Wales.
As I say I'm not totally clued up on North Wales so if anybody has any recommendations then we can have a look into it.
Well if you want to do the normal places like
Horse shoe pass or the evo triangle.
I'd say leave earlier as the police will be about.
Horse shoe pass, Bala lake then over to snowdonia?
Or do something completely different and go to the beach? We did that a few times in the old days wasn't so much drivers roads it was just a nice trip out that usually ended with some fish and chips. I can't imagine the sea side towns will be busy. But when I say sea side towns I don't mean places like Rhyl.
Horse shoe, Bala Lake then Snowdonia sounds good to me.
What time would you recommend we meet then mate?
