Rattly sunroofs seem to plague the Clio 2,and coil failures are a regular occurance on all Renault 16 valve engines,but really the late Clio 2's are great cars.And at least you can come home and admire the proper car parked in your drive way........

(The Alfa,not the Modus....)

The Alfa is probably going

There is no tax break here for cars, they are taxed on weight.

Alfa 35 Quid PA
Small Renaults 30 Quid PA

So the purchase is purely on reliability, and cost of ownership.
Currently in Gilbertr14's garage:
2006 Modus 1.4 Dynamique, 1998 Alfa 156 2.5 V6
