    hi everyone, I'm CJ,
    Just bought my first 197 a month ago after being treated to a run in my mates 197?a few months ago, I just had to get my own asap after that. So I bought a lovely albi blue 197 on an 07 plate, a lovely car with very few marks on it for its age. Picked her up from just outside Newcastle & brought her back home to just outside Glasgow without any issues, she drove like a dream & it was a lot of fun to say the least. Had her a month now & im enjoying every bit of driving it. It's the fastest car I've had since the days of the hot hatch fords lol, the last being a mk3 escort xr3i but this car destroys that for power obviously, I'm a mature driver now so before I get to old to drive anything with a bit of oomf I just had to try the Clio 197 out for myself & im so happy that I did.
    I was recommended to Joy here by my mate so here I am, just thought I'd say hello to everyone.

    Hi there, yes I am a tad excited with it, I love it so far, she's fun to drive & very nippy when needed, a bit thirsty on the juice but hey that's the joys of owning a sport I guess lol, thanks for replying.

    Hi there, thanks for the welcome,
    yeah she's a little cracker, I've nothing planned for now except for getting a decent headunit & speakers installed in her, the ones in it are farting like mad when there's any bass put through them so they must go as I love my tunes when driving lol.
