    How many miles does a clio engine last for?

    depends on a lot of factors, mainly when its been serviced and if its always been looked after. if its got a perfect service history then it should be fine, the bigger clio engines are tough old girls

    Getting back replaced parts after garage work

    i think he means maybe if you paid a garage to fit coilovers for you, they should give you back the standard shocks and springs

    1.2 Engine Change To 1.6 ???

    seeing as every clio shell is pretty much the same i dont see why the 1.6 shouldnt fit seeing as renault make a clio 1.6. and plus, the 2.0 fits, so the 1.6 definately will. i've heard the 1.6 isnt a great engine, and as for not insuring it properly, this is why everyones insurance is so damn...

    I'm new to this sort of thing! :)

    aha, very good idea, never say yes to their first quote, always say you were looking to pay a little less as youve just had to buy the car or something, and you havent got a lot of money left. and the fact that youre a student, big that up. they always get a quote, and then stick a bit more on...

    phone them tommorrow, you always get a better quote by phoning them, and theyre really useful on the phone.

    I'm new to this sort of thing! :)

    1 years experience bot NCB as i was a named driver on my dads insurance for the first year, shared the car, im paying 1800 for an 07 plate 1.2 16v and im a soon to be 20yr old lad, so its not too bad seeing as some insurers wanted 2 and a half grand

    try adrian flux, they gave me my best quote by about 600 quid, always worth a shot.

    Clio 1.2 TCE in Mk2 chassis??

    i was considering a 182 conversion for mine, but after reading this im very tempted as 150bhp from a 1.2 sounds interesting, could be a lot of fun! any more info on the possible gearbox issues?

    if it was fitted properly you wouldnt scrape, new exhaust hangers will fix that
