Don't get me wrong, the looks of the car are great, but there is no backseat, and I think I would need a shoehorn and some butter to slide me into the drivers seat... I guess it wasn't meant for people who are 6'5" huh?
    LOL, well im only 5'6" and ive got to have the front seat right back to be comfortable, and have the seat half way down to be able to see properly and still feel close to the ground and sporty

    when you say there is no back seats, are you talking about the pics from the first post or the clio V6 in my last post?

    I was looking at the first set of images. Now, when I say no back seat, I mean they might be there, but are essentially useless except for additonal storage. Kinda like the back seat in a 911, good for the insurance, but essentially pointless.

    The V6 in your last post appears to have no back seat what so ever and looks to me more like Z4. Pretty sporting though. I bet that V6 really pulls that car around pretty quick... I was to lazy to look, but is it rear wheel or front wheel drive?

    yeah the first post car has back seats, which are acctually useful for people under 6ft LOL

    and no the V6 has no back seats because its rear engine and yeah its rear wheel drive. it weighs 1400kg, 0-60MPH (0-100kph) in 5.6 secs, top speed of 153mph and renault specs say it will get 23 mpg

    Damn, that V6 is pretty spiffy. Just figure out how to mod it to extend the front legroom, and I'd be looking at that car. Martin, why not get that instead of the 1.6?

    Can I assume that there is a pretty large availability of after market parts for this car? For some reason it just strikes me as a car tuners would like to get their hands on...


    Any more plans for the 1.2 Martin? Gonna have to reallocate some of the computer parts budget to the car accesory budget?

    jeez, that is very heavy for a small car. My Alfa only weighs 1320kg, and it's probably twice the size!

    On a different note, I saw one of the new Mustangs in Bournemouth yesterday, very nice indeed. Not quite in the same league as Jeremy Clarkson's new GT, but I certainly wouldn't say no

    Yeah plenty aftermarket parts available for the 2.0 182BHP version (front engine, Front wheel drive) inc. a £5,800 Turbo conversion to 280BHP LINK

    The V6 only has basic mods such as new exhaust systems, performance air filters etc.

    As for my car, ive got some mods lined up, no performance mods until I can drive though as 1. I want to be able to feel the difference and 2. my mum doesn’t want to pay extra for insurance because of them (She’s insured for my car right now)
    So for now its just small exterior and interior mods, I need to get it lowered though as its annoying me being too high! And some new front speakers would be nice
