Yep, mini aus and the dealer pissed us off so we went shopping, Mrs Alpine hates the M135i and a 328i was seen as too big apparently , so the 8:08 was driven and bought in a week.

But just wondering has anyone driven the new Clio RS200 cup trophy?

What are your thoughts?

I sold my Clio RS200 Cup T. for two reasons alone.
1st.... Nissan Australia (Renault) are fucking useless to deal with, most my Renault parts needed ordering form France and took on average 3 weeks to arrive.

2nd.... The suspension was too hard for daily driving on Sydney roads.

Look elsewhere my friend.

You're still are dealing with Nissan OZ, don't risk the pain and move on. Granted all RS cars are brilliant to drive (when in working order) but hope you never have to encounter a warranty claim, these guys are diabolical in customer service.

kaitan, I drove one but race mode was broken so couldn't really tell how good the DSG is.

Interior is quite crap to be honest? but has more space that fiesta ST.

It is quite quick and agile.

The highlight of the car is the handling and it absorbs bump very well.
