Salam and greetings to all,

With a heavy heart I list my little French madamoiselle here.

It is an official Renault Malaysia car manufactured in 2008.
It was bought and registered by the first owner in 2009.
I am the second owner.

The Clio RS is an amazing hot hatch, this 2.0 NA model was still used as racecars at the 2017 Nurburgring 24 Hours race.

Some basic specs info (welcome to look it up):
2.0 NA engine with 197ps
6 speed close ratio manual gearbox
Brembo 4-pots and 2 pots came stock on the car
4 airbags
Stability Control

Upgrades by the previous owner:
Speedline 17in wheels
Hankook RS3 tyres (2015)
Stainless steel exhaust manifold
Akrapovic exhaust (unsure) but sound terrific
KW Racing absorbers and springs, the car sits lower but with reasonable ride quality, not too harsh even for daily driving
Carbon fibre airbox
Megane RS Recaro Sportster for passenger seat (don't ask me why only passenger)
Clubsport rear wing

Additional stuff I've done:
Brand new original Renault windscreen (old one had a big crack)
New engine oil Elf Evolution 900 as prescribed by Renault

I also have some more parts arriving next month (shipped by my brother from UK):
Full timing belt and water pump kit
Elf NFP Gearbox oil
Full set of tailored floor mats
Radiator set (but the current one works fine)

Honestly the car is not in pristine condition, I think it has done a few laps around Sepang.
The are small tears on both seats and some plastic covers for the seats are missing.

However mechanically the car is in good condition.
Engine is smooth and revs happily to redline.
Gearbox changes are also solid (I've been watching out for the 3rd gear crunch, a known syncho weakness - the NFP gearbox oil will protect it further)
No oil leaks
No overheating or smoke from tailpipes
No error messages

There is no sign of accident damage repairs at all.
The car has passed both B2 and B5 inspections at Puspakom.

There are some sounds coming from upper rear interior, some from the wing and some from panels. I've been too lazy to investigate.

The car is really thrilling and enjoyable to drive.
Maintaining it will need just a bit extra effort as parts from Renault Malaysia will be expensive, much much cheaper to import from UK where these cars are very very common hot hatches.
The car is robust and also simple to maintain. I can recommend a few reliable and reasonable workshops.

Currently under fully comprehensive insurance coverage.
This car was RM210k when new, current insurance value given at RM51k.

Reason for sale: Office relocation coming soon, need money to pay off loans and consider moving house.

Financing should still be possible since it as a 2008/2009 car officially imported and not recond AP.
There is no finance on my side so should make it easier on buyer's side.
Sorry though, won't be able to help for loans... buyer will need to arrange it yourself.

Thanks for reading all the info. Please feel free to contact me via PM inbox since I'm posting this ad SOLELY ON ZTH (I will post my hp number later if I decide to post up the car on mudah).

Welcome to come and have a chat and view the car. My location is Ulu Kelang near Zoo Negara or my office at Pandan Indah.

When it comes to buying a used car, they always say buy the owner and not the car. The fact that the gentlemen is honest about the car's history warrants a long hard look for intererested parties.

Good luck with your sale sir.

I don't have a car, I sail a boat.
