    I have  Clio rs line 130 edc and has park assist which is great and does not have the leather seats but i am not in favor of them anyway as most crease after a year or so and are not like leather that’s in a Roller and my seats are very comfortable also a great step up in quality from older clio’s i also have a 40kg hoist in the boot.

    These people are the selfish type who when everyone is abiding by the lockdown they think they can override everyone else they should have been fined or put in the cells for a night.

    Someone was saying on the tv that this virus may go on into 2021 if you as they say you cannot go out only for shopping then we are paying for a motability that we cannot use that’s a lot of money wasted which is a great shame and not only that the batteries will go flat we just do not know whats going to happen and i was really looking forward to getting out at some point but i am in isolation at this time.

    Thankyou I agree the new 208 looks fab I do like the met blue

    I waited till the new mk5 renault clio came onto the scheme in nov 19 and i am very happy with it the RS LINE 130 edc 7 speed is very quick i leave it in sport mode all the time auto express names it there best small car i would have considered the peugeot 208 gt line but the boot is smaller so my 40kg hoist might not have been able to fit and also the standard equipment is better in the clio.

    Pretty soon PSA group will have a huge share of the car market and it will be increasingly difficult to avoid buying a car with French ties, I don’t really car who owns shares in the company that builds my car as well as who actually builds it because not many are built in France, some non French cars are built in France, the AllSpace is built in Mexico, hardly a name for quality and reliability there.

    The old vw beetle was made in mexico i thought it was a great car.

    Took the plunge and just ordered the new top spec red/black roof Corsa Ultimate auto ( has lots of bells and whistles) Not sure how it demands a normal purchase price 0f £25,000+ still for £99 its a steal. Good reviews although some say the steering may need to be a little more grounded at higher speeds It is 17 stone lighter than its predecessor so that should balance things out once I get in 🙂

    Hi Delta i would have liked the corsa but it was not available in sep 2019 when i needed to order a car so got the New Renault RS Line 130 edc and im really happy even has the paddle shift with a sport mode which its very quick.

    The 1990s mini cooper sport i had still had the battery in the boot but what a great looking  car it was even fuel injected as well although it only had 62 bhp but its cornering was like a go kart our family had minis in the 1960s and 70s so i still am a fan. I had a few smart for twos the battery up to 2015 model was in the passenger footwell and when i had a flat battery you had to take out part of the footwell to get to it a real pain then newer renault smart alliance smarts had the battery at the front which was great a real shame that they have stopped there great little engines and that brabus mini flyer they were a bit overpriced though when new.

    Hi Brydo i thought that lpg was the thing when proton was selling in uk and also hydrogen that i think toyota is working on as i do think that electric is still ok for around town use its not reliable enough until there is charging stations everywhere  and me myself i do not mind if i could charge at home but not to rely on where and if i can find a charging station and even then what if other peoples cars are taking up the points.I think that it’s silly still to say at this time to ban petrol cars even hybrids that can regenerate the batteries is far better than relying on just pure electric when the infrastructure may or not happen.Lets have a fuel that has zero emissions and can go the extra mile.

    Re boy racer had a daihatsu gtti turbo 1989 reg 3 cy turbo sounded like a porsche 0.60 7.7 secs it was a great little car also in 1987 the first fuel injected suzuki swift gti electronic fuel injection blazened down the side decals that was very light and quick instant throttle response, i always wanted a peugeot 205 gti 1.6 or the 1.9 in its day i did test drive the 1.6 and that really flew along the golf in the 1980s gti i wanted as well.

    Some must also have issues with being able to afford the cost of everything as well can you afford a holiday as some disabled have to pay more the independent living fund is no longer available sad really what this fifth richest country is doing for many disabled people when you see over £1000 for a week self catering disabled holidays i myself could not afford that with the cost of fuel as well.

    Well peugeot now owns vauxhall and the new corsa is underpinned with the new 208 engines and parts i presume and nissan is in with renault and the new nissan micra which is no longer a small car is built in france with the new Renault clio which i have in rs line 130 edc and its built better than the older renaults in quality its a step up.
