My first drive of new clio

Hi guys, just a quick comment. The Vel Satis went to the dealership today for its EGR pipe recall. Thaey have given me a new Clio 1.2 extreme for the day. Its almost brand new with only 678miles on the clock.
Very basic model no air con etc, lovely shape and build quality seems ok.
What I dont like is a very very lumpy idle when sat at lights etc. Don't know if this is common as ive not much experience of petrol cars but just a comment anyway!
Currently in VEL SATISfied's garage:

Dunno about lumpy idle (or lumpy idol, for that matter...that Simon bloke has a lot to answer for), but the Clio always feels as though it's *just* on the verge of never does, just ticks over a bit more slowly than feels "right".

It does blip the revs depending on alternator load though.
