    Cheers mate! Yeah hugely different obv peak power wasn’t massively effected, but it wasn’t running quite right, so through low and mid range its a massive improvement

    Haven’t updated this thread in a while so thought I’d keep it going..

    Changes: Scorpion Decat pipe and itg panel filter (sold the KTR) RenaultSport Splitter fitted / Godspeed G hooks / Ferodo DS2500 fitred.
    Inner rack ends had play so have replaced them and had tracking done HEL lines and fluid change tomorrow.
    Tweak map ASAP

    - First track day in just under 2 weeks so a chance to really enjoy it!

    The to do list keeps growing with this car, I’m hooked..

    Progress update:
    So I took her on track for the first time, really enjoyed it and spent some time just getting used to track driving - had some tuition, and was probably a bit more cautious than needed due to first time out and wet conditions, however it increased my love and enjoyment for this little Frenchie!

    I treated myself to some B14s straight after and have spent today fitting them, pics below;
    First impressions.. well, the car now feels incredible

    Definitely better than standard, combined with the ds2500 it’s a marked improvement but I do think I’ll go for a more track focused pad like friction z or ds1.11 next

    Little update as it’s been a while, few pictures attached, rear interior has been stripped and boot mat fitted, GT rear lights and most recently clio 200 rear diffuser fitted.
    Few more things to tick off, cage / harnesses / Quaife / cams / CAE have all been added to the list

    Cheers mate, was certainly a challenge with a 3hr journey there and a black car as you probably know all too well haha

    Yeah I can imagine . I would say I was lucky with being so close but the massive hole in my tyre wasn't great
