I have all these problems...not together but one after the other hun!
Don't worry about the garages they all think im a daft female too!
The headlight one was simply the bulb was going and for some reason rather than just blowing just cut out...? No solution other than new bulbs!
Back brake lights - my fog light used to flash on verytime i braked which was more noticeable when i was braking downhill...took the lights out and used special sand paper from my garage to make a better connection...this worked!
The lights fading when you turn has not happened to me more than a couple of times but i haven't done anything as my lights dim when i put windows down etc...i simply (Due to an ICE install) got a new battery and this problem stopped.

When i start my car up from cold it feels like it is a lumpy bag of crap but i hav been advised all clios are like that until thy warm up...idle is not smooth even when warm.
Dont know if any of that will help :/
Currently in QueenB's garage:
Renault Clio 1.2 16V Dynamic
