As I understand it, EOBD is basically just OBD with manufacturer's specific extensions. For an EOBD unit to be of any use, it'd have to be one that's specifically deisgned to work with Renaults. Even then, it might not perform all of the functions that the official Clip diagnostics system does.

There are three possible protocols on the OBD connector, and not all units (especially the cheaper ones) support them all. For Renaults, you'll need a unit that supports the CAN protocol.
