Thread: Clio GT

  1. #1

    Clio GT

    Done a search, nothing came up in the first page and its late, so fark it.

    Looking to buy a new car in the next few months and i really fancy one. Was looking to get a 197 but the insurance is just too expensive still, so will have to wait a few years.

    Are these any good or is there any other decent similar cars i could go for (zetec s, etc)

    Was thinking black, leather and a few choice mods to cure the itch of not having a sport.

    Also, post some pics up to convince me

    Chairs.

    Nah, i owned a clio when i joined, 1.2 dynamique and trashed it. I dont own a car the now, missus has a C1 58 plate.

    I own a house now can afford a new car and up to about 1000 for insurance, 197 is looking at about 1700, just cant afford it or i would. :/

    Depends how much you can afford really.

    If its a warm hatch your after then for me its abarth 500, twingo 133 or new shape fiesta zetec s.

    If your budget is less then C2 GT/VTS.

    Re: Clio GT

    Dont want to spend anymore than 10k, and i reckon biggest engine can be a 1.6. The abarth was too expensive on insurance but the twingo was fine.
    The mrs is wanting a C30 but its top of budget and i wouldnt get one unless its the right spec. I like the GT as it isnt that expensive and will do us a year or two until insurance comes down on something better

    Get a 133 then, cool little cars. Can you get a decent spec C30 for sub 10K? My cousin is after one at the moment for her first car and they are incredibly expensive!

    Re: Clio GT

    Been debating it, need to go test drive one, just dont know if its big enough. Main reason we are selling the C1 is size. Its gonna be used for her commuting thats why i reckoned the GT would be good. Decent shopping cart.

    Re: Clio GT

    Can get a few for sub 10k but be very lucky to find the one i want. 1.6 sport r-design.

    Re: Clio GT

    Im planning on buying second hand. Im going from a 58 plate car the now we have had since new, wanting something of the same age but larger. The insurance on the gt is around 850, which is decent compared to other cars of the same size engine.

    Re: Clio GT

    So just spend a little less on the car to compensate for insurance? 197's can be had for ~7000 now, that leaves you 3k to play with?

    Only a fycking tool would spend that amount on insurance unless they lived with mummy, I could go two holidays with my family for that.
