Re: 2003-2005 Clio buying advice

Hi thanks for the replies.

All in all the car seems pretty good for it being 8 years old.
Interior is basic at best but thats fine for my wifes needs.
engine bay and engine seem clean and run well.
seems to run smoothly from what i can tell, it did however seem slightly less powerful than i would have expected for a 1.4 16v.
i did have a slight inkling that the gears weren't quite as smooth but my wife drove it for a lot longer and she seemed happy.
and like i said the clutch seemed very hard.
i will check the paperwork for cambelt being done.
how much is the charges for getting cambelt done?
can anyone recommend any renault independants in the NW-W London area?
