    Little update, i managed to recover the driveshaft and fit a new boot so thats all sorted.

    So i am heading up to see Andy at clioturbo tomorrow to fit me both handbrake cables, gearbox and driveshaft, i cant wait to pick it back up already.

    Then i can start the mods again :smile:

    So I picked my car up a couple of weeks a go, then a couple of days after I was going the right way up a one way street and some dick was coming towards me the wrong way, the only was i could miss him was to mount the curb causing a buckled alloy, burst tyre, cracked splitter and a bent tie rod.

    So £450 later and a new wheel + spraying, tyre, tie rod, track rod end, bottom ball joint and front splitter, and the car is back 100% and driving brilliantly once again, I am just waiting on my front splitter to turn up so I can fit it then its all sorted.

    I go on my hols next Tues but when i get back ill finally be able to start modding again.

    Thanks mate, all sorted now :smile:

    There wasn't really much to see tbh mate, just a buckled alloy and a flat tyre and the front splitter cracked, you could also see the tie rod was slightly bent, I didn't take any pics sorry mate.

    Paying for repairs is bad at any time, but when it's because of the stupidity of someone else :confused:wear: I don't suppose the other guy stopped to see if you were ok...?

    Glad you got it all sorted though and things are back to normal.

    Thank you :smile:

    No he didn't stop, he carried on and pulled out of the junction and my tyre was flat so I couldn't do anything about it, I also missed the reg :worried:

    Just finished fitting my fabia splitter, I actually think I prefer it to the cup one as its got more depth.

    I had one one before my cup splitter but i didn't fit it or trim it as well as this time round, overall for £11 im over the moon, ill get some pics of the car tomorrow after a clean.
     
  9. You clean freak, you... We wanna see the splitter!

    Hi, not really an update, but i have just ordered the standard silver interior strips, gear knob insert and steering wheel insert, i am going for a more oem subtle look rather than the bold blue.

    Which wheels look best?

    I am thinking of going for the total oem look interioer/exterior wise, but with the added bonus of the turbo etc, sort of like oem++

    Standard 182 wheels, i will need to purchase these which i will then get refurbed so they are mint!.

    Or keep the OZ's..

    Personally, I've never liked the look of the 182 wheels - they look too similar to standard-model Clio 2 wheels imo :smile: so I'd say stick with the OZs which look great on your car, or get some 172 cup wheels?
