    172 Headlight Main/Dip Beam Question

    Hi all, The Forum tells me I havent been here since 6th Jan. Antisocial g*t, arent I? Overworked, underpaid ..... Anyway, I have a couple of questions for the 172 owners. When you pull your stalk (ooh err missus etc.etc) to flip between main and dip beam, does the stalk click? Mine...

    Advanced Driving Lessons

    MB - ever thought of taking it on a trackday? Get some decent instruction and you should find out what you and your car can do. Incidentally, if you are treating the wheel gently you are doing the RIGHT THING. Being rough with the wheel, brakes or throttle will upset the car. It might feel...

    Clio vs CBR600

    I have a 172 and a CBR600. This is an oldish CBR (an FM). IMO there is no comparison.

    I stayed in Croydon for a couple of years. Accommodation quite reasonable, you can get to London Bridge in about 15 minutes on the right train (or about 25 on the wrong one). Victoria is about 20 mins too.

    Clio 172 import - Renault warranty work

    JJ- they are talking crap. The only difference is that you dont get breakdown insurance. If you write to Renault UK they will give you a 3 year warranty (details in several other posts). If they mess you around report them to Renault UK, who seem to have their heads screwed on. My local...
