New to Clio rs2



  03gti,2evors,clio rs
I'm new to this forum & to Clio's am retired & a bit of a back yarder & have a Golf Mk4 gti,Evo 6rs & 7rs & Mazda Rx4 so some experience with tools & recently learnig how to use a spray gun so like a challenge for interest sake & want to save sports cars from a premature end when opportunity & budget allows. I repaired three sad & unloved cars in the past several years a 03 VW GTI as my runaround a 07 Megane 225Rs & 03 Audi S3 for my sons to enjoy . In the past months we replaced the clutch in the 225 & all the parts usually required when it's time for a timing belt replacement. It was a good experience for a novice & I can now see why it cost so much to do here in Australia anyway. I recently bought another "tired car" in need of help & saving,it's a 02 Clio rs2 & the reason I joined this forum so hope I can converse with & learn from members more experienced than me with these revered little hatchbacks.

I took out the plugs which looked ok,& did a compression test. All 4 were around 175/8 psi,I have no idea what a healthy engine is supposed be. But for 250000klms didn't think it was too bad.

From what I have noticed not a lot like in the UK,but 172 & 182's are here along with other models like my son's 225 Megane sport & later iterations. Renault has a small but popular following over here. Particularity now as the JDM vehicles have risen so much in value,the RS versions offer good performance value with the car enthusiasts like myself & the motorsport clubs. I sure wish I could some how get readily available parts cheaply like you guys do,that would help keep more on the road instead of ending their day's on the track.
