RS Clio182 Video - A years ownership



  Clio R.S 182 FF
After owning my Clio182 for over a year I thought it was time to look back at the highs ‘n’ lows of ownership and ask myself - how good is it really? Hope you enjoy …

I think comparing a Clio to a Civic and the storage space isn't really a fair comparison based on purchase cost surely. I don't think people bought clios for their storage space.

I agree people don’t buy a Clio for storage space (or any car for that matter) but the lack of it can be a real pain in the a$$ for everyday life when it wouldn’t have been too difficult to get those basics right (my Megane RS250 has the same lack of storage!). Annoying, especially when other brands (aka Honda) can get it right. But I agree, it doesn’t detract from what the car is.

Try having a lupo gti for 'storage' 😅

Completely agree…for a start the Civic sits in a different category! It’s a C segment medium sized family car where as a Clio is a B segment sub contact. So when comparing sizes, storage etc you need to look at true peers like the 206 or the fiesta….otherwise why not compare it against a Ford Galaxy or Citroen Picasso of the same era? It’s basically the same sort of way of comparing things!

Right, okay gents, enough about the lack of storage, I think it’s poor, obviously you guys think it’s great! I give in ……🤣

I hope you guys aren’t on the Megane forum because that’s the flippin’ same (no storage!) and IS in the same category of car as a Civic!

It's French, all it needs is somewhere to put a few cigarette packets as far as they're concerned! Definitely get on yourself Snappy's waiting list and it's worth looking at when the aux belt was last changed, 3 year service interval and seems to be often forgotten, can take the engine with it if it snaps too.

Snappy, but he said its too big, he needs a sabelt/sparco. They're on my Christmas list this year

Yep, good shout about Snappy. I had planned to do it when I bought the car and as you know what things are like, you just end up living with it! Still on the to do list and it feels terrible 👍🏻

LoL I did you’re right, but the 182 is in such great condition I’m keeping it completely standard/OEM and do will have to live with a steering wheel that I feel is slightly too big. Certainly needs sending off to Snappy though for a retrim which will help 👍🏻
