Think it may have been me! Did It have dents on the drivers side? (yes...mine is damaged already...the day after I got it a BT can smashed into the side of me! Well gutted!!!)

Hope you strangled the bleeder before he got away!

Reckon it is extremely likely tat it was a friend of mine who has had his car a week now. He lives in Leamington.


He's not a member on here, so wouldn't have seen this thread.

Hello and Welcome!

No worries, I'm sure we'll see each other a bit more around the area! How come your interested in a Clio? Is this as a second car or are you not happy with the GT?


Personally I think the Clio is an amazing car especially for the money, just like the GT, it's not the fastest thing on the road but by god does it put a smile on your face and it's so rewarding to drive. Agile, fast in the corners (like driving on rails), revvy engine yet still practical (MPG ain't that great compared to what some people are getting on their GT86's). Not had any real problems with it at all. The ride (with the CUP Chassis) of the Clio is a little harder than the GT-86 both still have very little body roll (probably due to the low centre of gravity, the suspension doesn't have to be as extreme).


I was very close in not ordering my GT as I could have easily kept the Clio for longer but the GT86 just looks like an awesome car that I had to order one. Sadly I've not had enough time in the GT to fully compare but the way I see it, the GT should be very similar to the Clio and then some, especially since it's a RWD and so so low.

Ooops! I seem to have landed in the wrong club.

That's a pisser. Glad nobody hurt.

Any issues getting parts or matching paint?

Any time dude, I wish I could keep the Clio and have the GT....but it wouldn't make much sense for me to run 2 cars (it's just me, no family runs or anything but do on the odd occasionchauffeur some friends and family about) plus I really don't think I could afford to. Maybe we'll catch-up at JAE!
