1993 Renault Clio RSi 1.8 8v from UK and Ireland
Fast and unreliable
Electric windows failed
Induction pipe split
Engine management melted (£300)
Exhaust rubbers snapped
Idle control valve failed
Steering column worn
Replaced all the above £lots.
It is a good car, performance wise. Bearing in mind its only insurance group 11, it is fairly quick.
I have changed the cams, computer, forced air intake, cylinder head ported and polished and 4 branch manifold.
It is now 140bhp and around 6.5 seconds to 60.
A lot quicker than standard, but still with 8v torque. Fantastic.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
