lol, it would be interesting to see what he's done to achieve the performance he has.
I've had run-ins with 172's and 182's from from standing starts and on the move including higher speed runs on the autobahn [:)] I've never struggled against one in any one of those scenerio's.

Whats the most popular performance mods for them?

You should have seen the smug smile on my face when a skyline had a few minor problems against me, and especially when he saw the TDI badge[<:eek:)]

Ditto though I bet the TDI badge on your 'van' worked much better!!

I previously had one! She was quick!! I had 145 on clock with 17" wheels, so probably not far off 150!

BUT - i went to a 180 Golf Anni! had 2 encounters with a clio! a 172 facelift and a 182! Had em both - but only just!! there is no way you will lose with 260 horses (unless you are setting off in 6th lol)

Know what you mean! I got paced by a beat up 106 rallyee last week! Took 3 figures to lose him! I was f**ked off and majorly disappointed to say the least!!! So I got a remap! [:D] I hope he tries again!

My mate has a 182 and i can keep up with him till i hit 4th. Not bad with a standard tdi anniversary. Next is a remap.

He is always ragging it since he got it lowered and has started using the cliosport forum.

Was it turbo`ed mate???.....I know some tuners are charging the 172/182 lumps.......and they go like stink!!!!!!..No weight to em at all either.....my mate had a standard 182...but dam did it feel un-safe at high speed......is like being in an egg box.....LOL

EDIT.... Not that you would want to of course...but to confirm these rapid little buggers...check out www.k-tecracing.com 260-302BHP.......MENTAL!!!!!!!

MMMMmmmmmmm!!!

"My mate has a 182 and i can keep up with him till i hit 4th." Coming off a roundabout in a line of 3, with the first one being a lorry holding up the clio followed by yourself, isn't really a good basis for a fair judgement. We were trying to catch a CTR. I sure you can figure the rest of that story out.

"He is always ragging it...." Erm, how would you know? I do the odd spurts on the motorway, but raggin it??

All that a side, I think there is a score to be settled......(to be continued)........

Erm, dare I say it, its down to the driver. At high speeds a small car may feel unsafe if your use to a larger car. Golf's (which are excellent cars, I'm not arguing) do weigh more and bein larger may give you a better feeling of safety at high speeds.

If you know anybody with a Clio you should have guessed that the, 'Idiots' are usually quite young. And as you have probably found on your golf, when you get into modifying, there is a heck of a lot you can do. And I be willing to bet as with some golf owners, that they don't tell the insurance company. Insurance isn't too bad for a young person on a clio, especially compared to a powerful golf.

5.5k for a conversion. MMmmm, bit steep. So I'll agree that this is in the realm of an idiot. Unless that is for more than just the engine conversion. I've seen a Clio with a TT engine in it. Pushing out about 400+/- odd bhp. This person has spend oodles more on mod's. I won't call this person an idiot, more of a genius to be fair.

All depends on what you want, plus the challenge.
