Has anybody got any experience or information on these? I'm really quite tempted but info is quite thin on the ground.

We have a 1.6 version of this and it's been excellent. I can handle minor issues such as that but it's the engine I'm more concerned with really. I looked on Warrant direct reliability thing that said Renaults have very few engine issues but I don't know about the diesels.

Renault Sport specific parts demand a premium, I think these use specific suspension bits amongst others like the R26.

Get yourself over to meganesport.net, been a couple of nice 175s on there which seem to go very well after a remap so should be some knowledge/advice around them.

If it's anything like the R26 they just don't like having problems ignored. If you get a well cared for example it should be fine Thumbs up

2.0T is a pain to work with. Suspension is an arse of a job but the DCi is a cracking engine Yes

Thanks so far. I've not heard of them eating turbos though.

I've had a look on Meganesport and don't think I'll bother. It's as I expected, a performance car with running costs to match and I'm sure there are plenty of reliable ones out there but I just can't be bothered any more to constantly do preventative maintenance all the time. Shame really but it looks like I'm destined for a boring £5k derv.

Or if a touch smaller, the Fabia Vrs tdi/Ibiza Cupra 160 tdi. Both go well as standard, disgustingly well after remapping.
