I found the perfect girls car! :lolz:

You don't need to hunt for the keycard to open the car or start it. You just need to have it on you and the car senses it.
No more playing hunt the black hole for the keys :P

This car is gagging for a remap though (needs more low down torque that a remap can provide) BTM or KTec will be seeing some business soon :)

Purchased = Stereo headunit and stalk adapters
IGN Panel Filter
Renaultsport chrome exhaust tips.

oh yes I am.

I can feel the difference between it and the fez as I took the fez out today as well.
Never realised how heavy the steering is or how dull the brakes feel in comparison.
Still love the fez it has a throttle thats a lot more responsive but sad to say that the clio would probably catch it rather quickly after it set off.

I keep trying to reverse the clio using the Fez's gearbox layout (putting the clio in 6th) at some point it will click that you lift the lever and its over the other side...

fun times!
Looks like we have both gone to the other extreme with the cars.

Zetec s isn't to bad of a step back. At least its relatively new but cheaper to repair then the ST ;)

ill try not to neglect it. just waiting on the speed sensor that sits on the gearbox.
if that don't sort it the next step is the cat being blocked and choking on fumes (quite possible as once the fez 'coughs' it drives beautifully)

people say the Clio has a heavy clutch but compared to my fez it's light although Clio gearbox is very very stubborn after a ahem 'spirited' drive.

Oh right, was gonna say as the ZS has a hydraulic clutch.

it won't be driven as often but it's a complete opposite to Clio.
I don't want to forget how to drive the old cars. it hard enough learning how to drive this one.

2am this morning driving home from work and the auto lights were dipped and I couldnt work out how to get full beams on. thank god I know the road layout! :lol:
