I own 1 so I may be slightly biased...

Pros. MPG, Looks (Same in all the range), Handling (Cup Chassis), Quite nippy (Esp with a remap)

Cons. Can be a bit of a money pit. (Window regs, Wheel Hubs etc.

There will be more than this but, personally I wouldnt change mine. Love her to bits.

Pros, looks, handling, will keep up with lots of cars, especially when tuned (200 ish BHP). Good MPG compared to the R26/225. Cheaper road tax and insurance. Fantastic and very reliable engine. Doesn't sound like a diesel (to much).
Cons, everyone thinks it is a 225/R26 so should be a rocket ship. Usual 225/R26 niggles.

Pro's i'm happy with :) Cons I can live with! I would be looking at getting it mapped with the upgraded intercooler and different things. I need to change from my RS200 Clio to diesel due to work change etc.

Pros: drives aswell as the petrol one. Better if you do mileage (I do 50 miles a day). You can get a glass roof which is by far the best option.

Cons: I haven't really experienced any on either of the 2 I have had, but the biggest may be colour choice.

This happened to three of mine last year within a few weeks of each other.

I would recomend the lux pack. Leather seats, auto lights, auto climate, auto wipers and keyless entry are all great.

When i had my wheels powder coated i got the tyre pressure sensors removed and had standard valves put in and then turned the system off using a renault clip,they are a pain in the back side...

Bought mine last Sept so far loving it apart from issues with DPF - now removed, much better :)
Cup pack is a must rest down to personal taste.
