Right, new car time soon! I am so torn, but I think I'm getting drawn towards one model! Clio Sport 172, preferably a Cup model. Anybody owned one or had any experiences with them? I've driven 2 standard 172's and 2 "cup" models and I could feel a difference, or maybe I just liked the alloys on the cup models... I want a car to play about with, something to improve on and something a bit different. I'd only use it to drive to work and back every day (5 miles on the bridge, or when I get a nice car get up early and do the 15 miles blast through the B roads to Saltash via the ferry!), the occasional trip back home from Plymouth to Basingstoke and trips across to the ring and general track day action. Sound about right for one of those? I know the first reply is going to be "get an A3..." but my girlfriends got an A3, I used to drive Prawns old A3 on a daily basis (and I'll probably buy that some time soon if his dad makes his mind up!) and they just aren't exciting enough for me, a bit too german Any help or opinions would be awesome, because everybody I speak to says "ewww, french ****!" when they've never driven one or had anything to do with them!
