    the 306 was a good car, the Clio 172 was brilliant, but as for 106, and the clio 1.8 they were terrible. I think the only French car id want is a 205 Gti now, and I would own another 172, but as for the rest I am with you, I wouldn't go back.

    I bet the Civic (EG SiRII with B18C5) was a quick car. I do like vtec but low down turbo power is always better.

    Was a cracking car yeah! From back in a time where it was quite a rare conversion too..... no big deal nowadays and the K20 is probably the way to go now.

    Was a great car, but in many ways it was just too well behaved and too predictable. That probably makes no sense to anyone else though!

    I've always said, and still do, that £ for £, in terms of a standard car - you cannot go faster or have more fun for your money than you can in a Clio 172 / 182. Absolutely awesome cars for the money and one day i WILL have another one.

    My tiny list (I'm only 21, gives a break!):

    Escort 1.8 GTi
    MK4 Golf 1.8T (mapped)
    Corsa C 1.8

    That's it, while the Golf had bags more power (190bhp compared to 125 for the Corsa and 115 for the Escort) it couldn't go round corners.

    My 172 never gave me any bother really. Rear shocks and a gearbox mount both done under warranty - but no bother other than that!

    Civic's a nice place to sit, no doubts...... but you'll pay more for one than you will for a Clio, and, at least in my opinion, the Clio is more fun.

    The EP3 was a very good car as well mind you - I dont really have a bad thing to say about it either. Its just not got the same zany character of the Clio haha!

    The S3 is my first hot hatch, I've also got myself a mk2 Golf GTI 16v back in 2007 which I still have. Prior to those, I've had a Beemer, a Merc, couple of Passats and a couple of Rav4s.

    I think I will be classed as unique;

    Rover Metro Gti

    I can tell you that it had great acceleration on the motorway, but to explain how comfortable it was, imagine taking a go cart made by a 6 year old child onto the M25 and do 80 mph in the fast lane while allowing the mother in law to comment on your driving skills. Hair raising, uncomfortable, and scary!!!!

    On one occasion I woke up to find the car was touching the ground. The wheels had not been stolen, the liquid suspension had a leak lol. Unreal.

    And the rest of my cars have been more practical. Such is life.

    I can tell you that it had great acceleration on the motorway, but to explain how comfortable it was, imagine taking a go cart made by a 6 year old child onto the M25 and do 80 mph in the fast lane while allowing the mother in law to comment on your driving skills. Hair raising, uncomfortable, and scary!!!!

    On one occasion I woke up to find the car was touching the ground. The wheels had not been stolen, the liquid suspension had a leak lol. Unreal.

    And the rest of my cars have been more practical. Such is life.
    Not unique pal, ive actually had 7 of them haha. gti's and 100's. all fitted with silly 143bhp or 160bhp Vvc engines and mgf individual suspension roll bars etc. Very fun cars to the point that its actually you that drives them
