    It has sufficient power and I have found more than adequate to keep a lot of German cars at arms length. if you demand more my best advise sell up and get a Type-R or S2000 or another faster car for road use.

    Not keen on a S2000 a mate has one and i didnt like driving it - nice car tho. I'll get a quick 5 series in a few years when the M5 is affordable lol

    Welcome Gaz, I always liked the look of the Renaultsport Clio's but my wife had one and after 4 years the wiring loom corroded and needed replacing so we left Renault as a result. So which do you prefer overall?

    cheers guys for the warm welcome :Smile:

    I did enjoy the clio but it wasnt reliable. It was a very clean example I had took me ages to find last of the 172 as I didnt like the 182 wheels & exhaust lol

    I had the cambelt done (expensive on them) then there was an oil leak from the rocker cover (cambelt off, again!) and last straw was when the rear shocks went I couldn't be (removed) to replace so traded it in. i'd have the accord any day of the week no regrets getting rid of it
