The first thing I'd try is disconnect the battery over night and see what it does on re-connection.

The battery voltage may have dropped whilst the car was standing and this may have confused the ECU .It's worth a try as it won't cost you anything!.(make sure you know the radio code first though...).

If the battery idea doesn't work,then there are known issues with some Clio throttle bodies,but I'm not sure which models are effected.I'll have a look at get back to you tomorrow.

I'd rather push my Alfa than drive a BMW....
