Clio Phase 1 Rsi Purchase.

Evening all,
Spotted this rather clean looking clio on flebay with a few minutes left on the auction. Messaged the seller who agreed to let me have a look at the car providing the auction ended with no bids. The auction ended, with no bids. So last night I popped up to have a look, the car has 3 previous owners all local, a stack of paperwork, nothing past around the 2014 mark though, no rust, 54,000 miles and a full ticket. Everything works, sunroof is a tilt and slide and doesnt leak, the aircon is ice cold and runs sweet. Feel like I practically stole it at £475 plus £20 for petrol.
I've inserted abit of a rubbish picture as it was late when I got back in, shall put a few more on this evening possibly.
Due to it having no recent history I'm assuming it wants a full course of servicing, the oil is nice and clean in fairness and the coolant is bright green so I feel like its had a recent service but I'd rather be safe.
This being a 1999 reg k4m engine, does it have a dephaser pulley or just the belt? I read somewhere mine should be pre-vvt.
I dont suppose anyone has any numbers on these cars? Surely there arent many left in this condition with this mileage, I cant say as I've seen one in this colour either, would be interested to know anything anyone knows about rsi's.
I had also read that they share a few suspension components with the phase 1 172? Not sure if there is any truth to that either.

Saw rsi and clicked so fast. Severely disappointed thinking it was the beetle!

Never got the appeal with these...... at all.

Chuck an R32 lump in the rear - make it RWD only, add some side-pods for ventilation like a Clio V6 - and make 100 of them. Then I'd get the attraction!
Yeah they should’ve been a bit better engine wise but just look at it! Interior is awesome too

yes that will be pre VVT, nice cars always liked the 1.6 16v
Brilliant, great to know thank you. Planning on having a go at cambelt and aux belts myself once a timing tool is purchased and i manage to get the rounded hex bolt out of the end ignition coil so I can get the rocker cover off and the last old spark plug out!

I have a feeling the phase 1 1.6 is K7m engine could be wrong, just incase you need too source parts etc

Is there any way I would know? Sourcing parts has been a right bugger

Definitely, k7m is single cam by the looks of it.

Took mine on a run on saturday, did 140 mile round trip at 70mph with a few spirited exits off roundabouts and returned this! I think mine is secretly a diesel

Sanded the headlights today. Half the equipment and a quarter of the time but decent result I think, makes the front look fresher
