    havent read this whole thread but nice car you have there although you cant be any taller than 6ft otherwise there well uncomfortable. if you buy anything for it k-tec is the website to use or prima racing which im sure your aware of. they do a turbo kit for that car too capable of 300bhp.
    just read through the whole thread now should have commented after i read all rather than before. It seems your aware of everything i said lol.
    i was going to get a 182 but it would have been my third clio as someone wrote my first off for me and they got to small for me and back breaking so it would have been silly being 6ft 2.

    Bloody hell Mark, 'Is that your Car?' (Where the hell did Renault find that half ar$ed slogan for the new SMegane?)

    another car already! The MX-5 isn't even finished yet!

    Looks like a blast, so will be interested to see it when you're passing!

    Mazda will be kept 'nice' for weekends etc, new clutch to go in soon & in time for the nice weather

    I'll have to stop by if I'm passing, or vice versa... there's some cracking test routes round me

    Yup, my numbers not changed in years :)

    New tyres fitted yesterday, and I need to sort the exhaust heatshield rattle later on today.

    Otherwise just a spanner check before it's off to the Ring next weekend

    Oh, and I fitted my Connects2 properly now, so I can control my ipod from the stalk :)

    Yup, it's his one (well it was)

    It's certainly got a lot of grip, and turn in is good.

    Well it's made it to the ring very happily.

    38mpg all the way to the top of the A1, then 20 miles virtually flat stick saw it drop to an average of 37.1 by the time I got to the ring :D

    looking forward to a couple of quiet laps in the morning, but it's a nice cruiser

    £3.9k with cage & interior - fair price, slightly more than the cheapest - but I was happy with it. Not bad for a get to work car bought on impulse.

    out of the box it kicks the arse out of any other FWD car I've driven. I was just chatting to Ian about how much more confident I've got in the car this weekend - I've not found it's limits & even doing really really stupid stuff (like braking too late, mid corner, wrong line) it will just point in the right direction without exiting backwards or careering straight on.

    DS2500's when it gets back with new fluid I think.... they're overheated by Berkwerk now - so I've jacked it in now (probably)

    The view from the webcam doesn't look too busy, I'll head back down in a bit (you're welcome to more pax laps if you've parked the Clio up!)
