Ladies and gents, I have found myself looking at 225's recently. The Clio is great, but I get bored easily. Trying to get the most out of the Clio is hard work sometimes and odd things get tirering (sh*tty thermostats, kangaroo issue when cold, etc) Question is, who has had one and now had a Clio? How do they compare? I am not chasing figures, I wouldn't have bought the Clio if that was the case! Handling, ride, MPG, comfort, spec levels, common problems, at what mileage do things wear out, etc. Cost of insurance (32 with 7 years NCB) and cost of tax? Rust? Currently I have a full fat 197 with Recaros, Xenons, climate control, auto wipers, Cup suspension, etc. I fancy the same toys, not bothered about satnav or heated seats. Also not looking for a trophy! The car is a daily as well.as some fun. Looking at prices they are similar to Clio prices, seems £3-4k, is that a reasonable price to pay? Naturally, I have also considered dropping in a 225 lump into my Clio but without mechanical knowledge and equipment its not a route I see me taking. Any help is appreciated!
