yeah always like'd RB's, wonder if any one on here has the one that was on there

I doubt it, they're media cars supplied by Renault that get raped by every journalist in the land,
worth about £50quid after everyone's had a go with it.

Don't like the shopping list down the door on the one the stig races round the track!!
Malay it appears to have cup suspension, splitter and satnav but no spoiler?

Cup spoiler wasn't fitted when nav was specced. Something to do with the spoiler catching the GPS aerial.

It's (the episode) is old enough for it to be a decent review though which is nice.

Not like the 200 being inferior to the DS3 & Abarth because James May is slower around Monaco, you can't fit 18 people in it and because James May couldn't swap a CD for some petrol (or whatever)...

I actually sold that car when I worked at renault.

The guy brought it back and demanded a refund after his friend showed him the TG review on youtube.

Flol, at least the engine was well worn in, or is it worn out?

He was livid.

We ended up swapping it for an Inferno cup. He then proceeded to fit 18 inch chrome wheels and blacked out windows....

Is this new or old TG? Not the one where the fat sausage fingered prick complains about the seat only having two positions?

Yep that's the one, he slags it off to begin with, then says it's amazing to drive.

Yeah, that review kind of swung me to actually test drive a Clio.

Such a strange review, he picks fault in all of the things that I see as minor and skirts over any serious issue.

They don't have any serious issues,
iirc no Clio in history has ever gone wrong, had bits break or fall of, or ever broken down.

Edited for accuracy, everything fitted with Turini's and a cup spoiler from new has ever gone wrong, had bits break or fall of, or ever broken down.

Especially on a track. Would love to have seen the time on a dry lap, it would have been very close.

The v6 wasn't much quicker than the 182, but I always remember it being in another league in the mid range, when I first bought mine me and my son would go for a ride and we'd be talking away then all of a sudden he would say, dad your doing 80! That side of it was totally different from my 182
