    evening gang, I saw this on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3Xi5l86JP4I Not sure whether it's just a concept or scheduled for production, but I quite like it even though I'm not that keen on the principle of re-heating a former design. Seems to remind me more of the current Fat 500...

    I know most of you hate this car, but I don't understand why. It's slammed, dunked, dashed (I made most of those terms up) and it has deeply dished shexy alloys, and it is the grandaddy of all RenaultSport hot hatches - yet there is zero love for it. It is chuffingfingly cool and probably...

    Non, no, not me :) Do you remember I posted a video of a chap that reviewed the Alfetta GTV6 recently? (If not, don't worry, I will find the link for you later). Now he has got his paws on a road going version of the Renault 5 Turbo 2, the mid-engined hairy beast from the 80s...

    Hey all, I've just had the family Berlingo written off thanks to a rear end shunt at a roundabout. The GTV's not quite up for carrying all five of us! For the family car I was thinking of getting a Renault Grande Scenic (budget 2k+) - Can anyone point me in the direction of a good buyers...

    I've been offered a 2000 Clio 2.0 sport (also known as the RS)for what I consider a fairly keen price. (He needs the dosh fairly sharpish and I know him well).I have a sort of feeling that these will appreciate quite well in the future and maybe something for my son to take over along with our...

    Just seen a pic of the rear of the new Renault Clio and can't help but think that it is remarkably similar to the rear of the 147. Anyone agree? What aspect of your cars are you fed up with lazy car designers using as a "source of inspiration"?
