      Definitely, over the years I look at it an go you bloody cost me a fortune , but all in all once you drive it you forget all that. The grin factor for money is unreal, I swear drew it's like a go cart that can easy hit 130mph on track obvs, great on fuel averages 39-40 mpg in town , just no space or it would be my daily with petrol being cheaper and this returning more mpg

      • I think people get attached to their cars, I had my vectra c for 13 years. That’s the longest ever I have kept a car. Then when the time came to replace it with the insignia, I didn’t want too see it go. That is when my youngest daughters boyfriends father stepped in to buy it. Still see the car running about. Made it so much easier knowing the car was going to stay local.

            You always seem to put a smile on my face, definitely lucky to have the wife's we have as not many understands how weird us guys can get over a piece of metal, I'm a big fan of Saab's to mate especially the b204 engine, I've had a few in track cars.

            Anyone is more than welcome to post on my threads regardless, no discrimination here buddy..

            Peace out, long live the Swedish an french.

              13 years is a very long time, I missed the vec c as we decided to get a sh!tssat which I now look at an go wtf did I do that for
              Owned it for 10 years and hated every minute but the wife loved it, if she had her way the siggy would have been a golf
              That was one occasion I'm happy the siggy turned up at the price she did cause now she loves it says she can't believe how dated vag look inside, we got the wee Clio during owning the b6 as it was God dam boring and from then on the love affair began
              The siggy definitely can lift her skirt an move hence why I've probably neglected the Clio as you can still get smiles for miles in this big girl even fully loaded. I'm not saying it's the same as the Clio by any means, it's not boring like many other diesels I've driven.
              I've always been an 80-90s hot hatch kinda guy (boy racer) but there just fetching far to much money to relive.

                • I always think "its not wasted" as its not going to need re-doing in my ownership.

                    Keep forgetting it's got cup chassis slightly wider track so flexi's were about an inch to short.

                      • Another update guys, was ment to do this a few weeks back but got excited about latest purchase, Clio is up and running again.
                        not entirely sure why she broke but my guess is being left so long caused the fuel to go bad.
                        So why the blue smoke I asked myself. My theory is the fuel wasn't burning correct inturn going into the oil which raised the oil enough to let the crank breather draw some into the plenium chamber inturn causing it to burn oil.

                        When I drained the fuel tank the fuel was brown, I'm wondering if oil some how was returning down the breather to the tank or does fuel go brown as it turns? Strange part is the fuel never smelt off that was checked prior to thinking it was blow by.
                        Anyways she got her new plugs oil an filter an a new O2 sensor fitted and is running rather nicely.

                        Any views, theory's or questions welcomed

                        • Ummmmmmmmmmm a strange one that !
                          the crank case breather is normally a one way affaire or in the old pounds shillings and pence days they use to incorporate a flame trap , silly little round thing with holes in it that cured that side .
                          Use to get those kind of symptoms on i Remember MK 2 jags ( sweeny ) with the oil catch can causing issues
                          blow by causing symptoms of failed engines .
                          at least it was not the engine I felt for you ,just like Samyam with his .
                          Long live the Renault

                            Definitely mate had me scratching my head, wasn't really paying attention to oil level cause it was me that serviced it and knew levels were good then an lucky if it had covered 2k on that oil. Was sat on a slight hill when I checked the oil so was inaccurate, couldn't start it to level it so just jacked it up till it looked level an checked dipstick again, must of had about 500ml to 1l over the max.
                            clios are known for having oily intakes but it was puddles hence why I thought blow by was the issue failed ring but nothing pointed in this direction ie compression test even the sniff test.
                            Was gutted when I read about samyam great looking machine.
