Quick question. My misses wants a new car. I was thinking of the Clio 1.2 16v, she has driven the 206 LX 1.4 8V which she likes and I think is pretty quick for a 1.4. Has anyone actually compared power and overtaken ability of these two cars. BTW its got to be a five door for when she has a kid.
Does that mean all book times are wrong - surely 1.5secs of ur standard 1.2 is a heck of a lot - ud need a serious ammount of tuning just to do that? Thatll mean my new cup when it arrives should be capable of 60 in about - oh - 5secs??? Dont think so......... and 120mph, my 1.6 16vRSi only just manages 127 and it takes an age to reach that - were u going down a vertical drop?Quote: Originally posted by Oakley on 30 September 2002
Ive done 0-60 in about 11.5 seconds so dont look at the book times (13sec my arse!!) also done about 120mph. I love it!

CUPSIZE, it seems yet agian that you are somebody with the opinion that if you have a 1.2 16v then you shouldnt be able to have some fun. Why try call people liars??? I dont see the point.
Yeah - whatever - I started on a 1998 1.2 8V then I got a 1.6 16V 1999 RSi (tuned to 147BHP) and now Ive got a cup - who did I call a liar - noone, just dont think u can get 120mph and 0-60 of 10 secs from a standard 1.2 - book figures are there for a reason, they arent just thrown out of a hat. And also Ive been there in slowville - it aint fun when u get beaten of the lights by your same car except theres a granny driving it! But that life - ill get whipped by (not a lot really) Evos and STis, 911s but look how much they cost!!!!
