Do It! — It's french, thats all you really need to know, 1.2. slow. handles like a trolly, spent too much money on it but it's my first car, so i love it and am proud of all of the work i've put into it :)

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: looks beastly

Cons: the handling

No Thrills Economy Class! — Good reliable cheap run around, not good for Petrol Heads or posers though! Secretly I desire a Nice new Merc Convertable or Hi Spec sporty BMW but the Budget could not stretch that far yet.................

Pros: Cheap to run

Cons: Like a Tin Can, hollow and Plastic

My First Fast Car 97-99 — small, light, basic with some extra power coming from the engine, real old-school hot hatch, probably the best in its time and class. 172 bhp will always be fun in a clio end of story... ok understeer in tight corners especially in the rain but who cares....

Pros: everything, i really loved it.

Cons: slipped off the road after overcooking a corner, my parents sold it a week later
