    What is it about black, 3 door 1.2 Renault Clios....?

    All the 'yoofs' of today seem to be driving these at the moment, I guess Renault are doing free insurance or something (Like Citroen and the Saxo).

    Don't get me wrong, I'm sure they are pretty decent cars (considering they are French) but why do these pratts insist on driving up my arse and challenging me to races on the bypass ? I know my 1.8 Astra in no Viper, but it's a pretty decent performer.

    Of course I just pity them, rise above it and let them pass as I've had too many crashes already (none of them my fault I might add) !

    I guess soon it will be those Citroen C2 things (in black of course) !!!

    black 1.2 clios and 1.1 saxos are quite common here too i used to love it when my corsa was running it may have only been a 1.4 8v with around 98bhp (according to my cousin and the previous owner) but it still beat a few saxo VTR's (standard ones may i add) i had a Clio 1.2 sittin on my **** on my way to pick up my girlfriend once so when the lights went green at the next set i revved it lit the tyres and left him sittin in a cloud of smoke he charged after me and just when he thought i was goin to race him down the bypass turned into my girlfriends street! i wouldn't like to lose my license over someone like that i managed to lose it all by myself tho

    i was out in the VR6 the other night and there was a black clio 1.2 that seemed convinced he could beat me off the lights no matter how many times i destroyed him (without really trying)
