    Hi ya'll.

    I'm Lee aka pedro, 26 from Sunderland, mot tester/mechanic.

    Got a 2010 rs200 half fat cup in deep black.(I think that's the proper colour name)

    First ever Clio in my life and I've got to say I love it. My last car was a clubman cooper s running 278hp / 389flbs, so we can say I like to toy with my cars this one isn't any different.

    Not going power just making this one look the dogs danglers lots of aero and fine tuning the handling may need some advice in this department.

    So I haven't been out with my camera just yet but very soon once I get it detailed but here's one of the car

    Suspension you guys gals run ? I've always ran bc's but don't think bc make them for the clio unless I'm wrong ?

    Also exhausts ? Don't like Milltec due to shoddy welds. Been looking at scorpion or cobra.
