  10. Mk4 Clio Dci revs hang between gear changes

    Hi I have a 2016 Mk4 Clio Dci with 16k miles. I find it hard to make a smooth gear change particularly between 1st and 2nd gear. It seems the revs are slow to drop to idle when I dip the clutch and sort of linger for a few seconds, if I hold the clutch for a few seconds and wait until it drops...

  15. 2004 Clio II 1.5 dCi 65 remap

    I got my car remapped 6 days ago from (what I think, at least) is a reputable remap place (they're an authorized dealer of Revo) by the name of RSTuning. Did I just basically f*** myself?
