    @sevenfourate

    Many thanks for remembering this, i try to find part which is from Clio197 or Clio200 to be sure it is compatible for my car.
    Also, it would be ideal if spare part does not have rust at all.
    My current plan, if i dont find correct part before snow falls here i will take my current part off the car and sandblast/paint it.
    I dont know how ideal solution that is, but it would be better than current state..

    Yep, at least when we first take a care for her horse, no problem to go there with my car :smiley:
    Usually i go with bicycle if i want to drink couple of pints. Taxis are too expensive here, no uber..

    Very nice, always wanted one but running costs are mental. Bet they work well in the winters over there though!

    Compared to an evo, yes! Mainly petrol usage, as it's expensive over here. I calculated what I spent on my old E36 and it was over 5K!! Last time I figure out what a car owes me :tearsofjoy:

    How about intake manifold painting in wintertime, i think top part of intake manifold is easy to remove with bolts?
    Front calibers are going for soda blasting, why not same time top part of manifold.. and then silver paint+lacquer for manifold. Colour will be silver metallic.
    Intake manifold gasket have to be replaced, anything else..?

    Why not soda-blast the inlet manifold and then cover / protect with a Satin lacquer Antti ?

    "Factory" looks, but fresher and with some long term protection from the Aluminium corroding / ageing.

    I'm sure Silver Metallic would look ace. But in your own words previously - were trying to keep the car standard as possible.....

    Good shout @sevenfourate I'd never thought of that! If I hadn't already painted my cam cover I'd be doing that. Perfect for this car though, considering how clean and oem it is.

    I would also get a new throttle body gasket too (and clean out the throttle body while it is off).

    Good idea, maybe paintshop can spray 2k car lacquer over soda blasted manifold? I just have to be sure that lacquer does not turn yellow like some lacquers..
    I dont trust so much rattle can lacquers.. Proper bodyshop 2k is so much better.
    Maybe in same time he can paint my front brake calibers...

    Thanks, so shopping list: intake manifold upper gasket + throttle body gasket..
    I have no problems with throttle body, can i clean it with carburator cleaner or brake cleaner?

    Nice one, but one question.. what is torque for those bolts? Or do i just look from my chart for 8.8 bolt, m6 or m8 i think..
    I have to find intake manifold torque settings too..
