Well its hard to say really, when i first drove my clio i was all "f**king yes i have my own car!" so that was a good moment but i had a great drive in 172 at brands last August. It was lapping faster than my old mk1 Golf and it was just a lot more fun than i thought it would be, the steering was neutral, progressive, it was predictable yet entertaining. Throttle adjustability is spot on too, oh and mid range surge was impresssive. I could go on but basically i enjoyed it a lot!
smae for me tho first test drive in a 172 as it tried to pull me straight across the road and into a lamp post as i floored it off a rounda bout then to have the women that was in the car go ooh yeah i forgot to tell you about that !!!!!
Since i wrote off my mint 19000 J reg AX GT having to drive an E reg Mazda 323LX with 130,000 on the clock Gold and brown in colour for 2 years, just getting behind the wheel of my valver was the best experience for me.....
The day after I got mine lowered and had the new wheels and tyres fitted I was testing my new found handling ability. I went round a left handed going way to fast, the front right bottomed out and I ended up going sideways across the road and somehow got it together after going onto the soft verge on the other side.. Serious brown trouser moment when you realise it could have gone very tits up!!!
When i bought mine, i wasnt allowed to drive it till i paid for it coz loads of test pilots wanted to see what it can do. So i had to drive it home. hadnt driven anyrhing with that kinda power..... ACE
Having just bought the Willie and was thinking this is as fast as I thought it would be, having owned similar cars - then putting my foot down to the top of the revs for the first 3 gears and thinking this is miles quicker than I thought it would be - Nice Either my last cars were slower than they should have been or this is quicker - I think its getting RRd in April.
best moment in a clio ............ now thats a hard 1 lol
its gotta be driving thru a 30 mph zone at 115+ with me mrs sat at the side of me diggin her nails into my hand and my mate askin me where i was goin in such a hurry on the fone with the other hand and a fukkin mini roundabout comin up quik
my son was born about 20 mins later hehe
was in my old valver and at about 4 in the morning, got to the hospital far quicker than any ambulance would have lol
hmm, probably humbling my mates 20v coupe up to certain speeds and twisty stuff. Beating that same mates 328i upto 110mph, infact, anything to do with convincing non-clio believers in the performance of these things when driven right
