I have a question, is it possible to charge a renault twizy on a 6 amps breaker?
I currently live in a building where they put the garages on a 6 amps breaker, and my question is what will happen if I start charging my car on this breaker?
Will it pop or will it just charge a lot slower?

As standard the Twizy pulls about 2.2kW which varies between 9.5A and 10A depending on line voltage. That said, it should be possible using OVMS to tell the onboard charger to pull a lower current when charging. Naturally it will take longer to charge the Twizy if you do this, but it might then enable you to avoid tripping the 6A breaker.

Take a look here: Twizy OVMS FAQ
and here: https://github.com/openvehicles/Ope...Renault-Twizy/OVMS-UserGuide-RenaultTwizy.pdf see page 15

Also, I have found there is more Twizy info on EVOwners as that's where a lot of the UK owners seem to hang out.
