 I always wanted a 19 16v after my 5 but went down the Clio route in the end. Ive still got a 16v badge of one some where i go from a scraped yard years ago lol

the 16V badge comes in a few colourways and of course the desireable 16S from French ones ;)

Great thread ...... Nice pics of the 1916v's .... brings back some old memories ...

I had a few myself back in the day, a white Ph1 hatch J438 VSC, and then a black Ph2 hatch MDZ 6248 / J336 YEO, being Renault daft and the 1st time i seen a 1916v i knew i just had to own one !, i still remember to this day that it was the bonnet vent that sealed it for me .. drool ... .. the seats were like nothing else, the steering was pin sharp and fluid, an F7P block that screamed a beautiful noise once past 4000rpm, it should have been No1 on Top of the Pops it sounded soo good, then topped with an amazing chassis ... i hate to coin a popular phrase but they really did corner like they were on rails and coming from the north of Scotland my 19's seen many a bend !! ...

Its been many a year now since i last drove one, we have a last of the Ph1 F7R cabriolet Megane roadster in the household that we have owned for just shy of 9 years, which is another great underrated wee belter, just like the 1916v i find it also has great handling and a great engine, and despite what the sinners say its been reliable as the day is long for the whole 9 years of ownership.

I once read that the ph2 cars on a J plate were actually still a ph1 underneath the ph2 body ??? ...

Back in 1996, I went out to buy a R19 16V and ended up buying a Mk2 Golf GTI instead Blush

Brings back memories these great cars ...

Marknovaboy, nice car, the last of the line model you had there with the drivers airbag and the red insert stripes missing from the inner door cards .... dont know why Renault done this with the red stripes, the same happened on the last of the line on the Renault 21 turbo's aswell ...

Some say that the Ph1 1916v was the daddy, also some will say that in any models the 1st models are the best then there after the models start to get watered down, i was lucky enough to own both models and i guess my ph1 was more raw'er but i thought both models were just great cars to own ...

A few photo's of my old one's from days gone ..

My white Ph1 ...

Some great looking examples here!!!

I remember my childminder buying one new in '94 (L) in the dark metallic blue colour (apolgies, I don't know the real name). She'd previously had a poverty-spec one an a H plate and I have vivid memories of going with her to pick the new one up from our local dealership. I must've been about 8 at the time and I think that day is the first time I ever fancied an older woman hahaha!!!

the 19 16v is indeed an awsome retro renault, anyone wanna see it in PFC?! Maybe they'd do a retro feature on some of the ones in this thread...
