    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!

    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.

    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 :worried: 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 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.

    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 :smile:

    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!

    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.

    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.
    Could do
    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.
