...All out practical economy on a massive scale Vs while im young may as well go 4 the mental fast option.
U can see from my details which won 4 me though.
Honestly the oly 2 clios i would look at though (V6 excluded) are the 172 and the DCi.
Its like having a refinery in ur car u hardly ever fill up, and when ur in france.. Well with it at 50p a litre in some places its amazing.
Its also quick as diesels go so go out and but it. Since ur obviously looking for economy why bother going half hearted into something like a 1.2 1.4 or 1.6? May as well go for either of the 2 extremes and get the DCI Xtreme (poor joke i no)
Thanks for that! No u dont get free insurance only with the DCI65 which i really dont want, i cant decide between the 1.4 and the DCI80 cos i def need my speed when it comes to first setting off and thats whats putting me off the DCI and every1 keeps telling how quick the 1.4 is !
theres only 1.5 seconds difference in the DCI80 time and the 1.4. And with 0-60 times on both those cars being relatively slow anyway i dont think it would make much difference.
I no u said its the settin off that you are really intested in but the DCI 80 has almost as much torque as a 172!!! On the bypass next to ur mates just put ur foot down and watch them all change down a gear in order to try and keep up!
All that fun when raggin it and still at a thirsty 40mpg lol. Something most people on here dream about.
very true, but i think silver looks sporty and black looks classy, plus on black looks body coloured ! think youre right on DCI better then a 1.2 or 1.4 anyday and if u go for a 1.6 jumps 5 insurance groups which is scandolous!!!
Yeah, Silver is quite a nice colour but when my car is clean and covered in wax it really does look amazing. Ive parked next to a silver 172 b4 after cleaning it and although they may have been biased, all my mates said they definately preferd balck to silver.
However, none of them mention that when i ask them to help me clean it at the weekends!
Have you have a look at the red as well? Looks quite nice also.
Oh Big tip. Ive never had AC b4 but it is a life saver! if it doesnt cost much extra (dont know how much) make sure u get it, its wicked.
