    Ordered new car for the lady.

    I stumbled across an outrageous deal here at work 15 days ago, and regardless of us looking to buy a house - I couldnt refuse it.

    Yesterday I placed an order for a new Clio 197 Cup in racing blue.

    Its the girlfriends car , but I will probably use it at the weekends should whatever company car I have be 'boring'.

    Not had a lead time confirmed as yet, but were expecting an 8 week wait.

    Watch this space.

    Picture for illustration only.

    Nicely styled yeh.
    My brother has a ph2 172 Cup, and I enjoy the drive in that, so can only imagine this is better.

    Are the electrics on the new ones any better than the old ones?

    As renault electrics in the past have left something to be desired

    I quite like the styling though

    Yeah knew there was a warranty just a pain in the ass having to keep taking it in i would imagine.

    More to the point did Lauren get a say in this or did you just buy it?

    I sold my gsi for a clio 182 in racing blue and love it, had no problems with electrics thus far fingers crossed but think its becoming fairly uncommon now!!! Heard a lot of good thigs about the 197 cup being on cliosport.net.

    It was a joint decision. Me and Tolley.
    She will insure and drive whatever she is given
