There's a tube station in my area that has a bridge going over the road and the road goes down and up again, leaving way for a metre of water if it rains hard. About 4 years ago, I was driving along at about 4am, at around 40mph, and I didn't notice that the little valley bit had filled up with around almost 60-70cm of water. I saw it too late, slammed the brakes, but ended up going through it . I stopped about 1/4 mile from there and checked my engine over...No damage, and even until this day, no damage, nothing, not a sausage.

Personally, I think thats a testament to the Clio's design and engineering. I've forded other lower floods with the car, nothings gone wrong. I'll be sorry to see it go soon, need a bigger car though.
