I've driven a clio 1.2 the same shape as yours, and tbh it is a lovely car to drive, I don't know if you find the seating position quite high up but I love that. Handles well, and for a 1.2 I was amazed how quick it was, but for the life of me I couldn't get used to the clutch - I think it may of been sh**gged on it mind, but the bite was so high I couldn't even reverse the damn thing at slow speed lol. The only other thing I hate about the clio is the limited rear leg room

can only just afford a phase one, n not really sure what there normal price is but looking at spending around 1700. really prefer a black one but havn't seen one for less than 2000 so silver will do.
