I see renault now has a specific brochure dedicated to the C172. And the dashboard pic has the RHD cars red line start before 7k on the rev counter...so thats all ok then.
Sorry to bring that up again
BTW - I saw at least three lovely 172s at Goodwood with ClioSport stickers on them. Saw a blue one with fab wheels and a private plate parked next to a silver one I think. And my 172 was only a few rows back!
