I look after the Renaultsport road car activities for the UK. I've been with Renault for over 10 years and have been in the industry for 25 years (gulp..). We hold regular trackdays, factory visits and events where all Renaultsport owners can get together and where there's a range of cars to try. I look forward to seeing you at the next one.

Clio RenaultSport 200 Pulling to Left

I have paid a deposit on a 14 plate Clio RenaultSport 200 EDC. The test drive highlighted it pulled to the left but that was nothing to do with road camber. Full payment would only be handed over once the pull had been resolved but despite another test drive it is still pulling. The Renault dealership insists the geometry has been checked and there is "nothing else can be done to resolve this". The car had Michelins on the front and Goodyear on the rear. These were swapped over but the pull persisted. I have read this is a widely known problem and there seems to be solutions but these can vary dramatically. The dealership is now trying to say that this is "just a quirk of this particular version of the Clio" and that really annoys me because why would any manufacturer sell cars that constantly pull to the left? I really like the car but it has to drive correctly as a constant pull can be a real nuisance. It is still under warranty. Any suggestions on what to do next to get this resolved? Thanks.

Tow Bars

I'm on the horns of a dilemma I'm really keen on buying a 2014 Megan RS from my nearby dealer in Banbury. The only thing that's stopping the purchase is my need for a towbar for my motorcycle trailer. I can't get any clear advice about fitting a towbar , some say you can, some say you can't. I can see why it would be difficult because of the central exhaust outlet, however I can also see that you can buy Megane Coupe tow bars, so I'm hoping that this could be modified to get round the exhaust. I'm prepared to pay a bit extra to have somebody make the mods I just need to know its possible before I make my purchase. Please help and any direction as to who could fit such a tow bar would be greatfully received.

Tow Bars

Hi - the central exhaust is the issue. If you can find a reputable towbar manufacturer that can accommodate this, we don't see a problem

Clio 220 phase 2 parts

I have seen a Clio r3 with the face lift rear lights would these work on my Clio 200t edc and also the dimmable rear view mirror would the wiring connections be in the original loom so I can install this Rich

Clio 220 phase 2 parts

Hi Richard - the wiring is different so they will not be a straight swap (and we haven't checked if they'll actually work)
