Hi guys. I've been a member on Cliosport for some years now having owned a 182 a little while back. Bought a 200 a year ago but for some reason didn't really know about this forum and how good it was. Joined and paid for membership this morning. The 200 is a full fat model in Albi Blue with the cup chassis, cup wing and Recaro seats. It is in fantastic condition inside and out. It had a few modifications when I bought it. Uprated RARB, Ferodo DS2500 pads, Ktex grooved discs etc, also has had the centre exhaust silencer and one of the cats removed. In my ownership I have replaced the slightly worn drivers seat base for a brand new one and fitted a set of matt black Oz Ultraleggeras with Yoko AD08R's on. I've recently been tempted away to get something else. The main reason for this is the 3 doors and the noise which can get a little tiresome on long journeys. This isn't really a massive problem as its the second car (Partner has an S Max 2.5t - brilliant), but sometimes I wish it were a little quieter when cruising. I already have 2 kids but we are planning on a baby in the next 12 months or so I started to look at Focus St's. Saw a lovely Mountune 260 example nearby so went to test drive it. Stunning to look at, amazingly clean inside and out and clearly much better built than the Clio, also fast in a straight line, however, what turned me off was the lack of fun in the bends. Felt really really sloppy in comparison and whereas I can go into any corner at pretty much any speed I want in the Clio, the Focus felt very on the edge in comparison. I've been fortunate enough to own a lot of decent fast cars - WRX, STI, vRS, Type R, etc etc, but the 200 is in a different league for fun. Nothing comes close. So...I've decided that I'm definitely keeping the Clio and the baby will have to learn to walk straight away!! I intend to do further mods to make it the car I really want. Any advice on the following would be much appreciated. Steering Wheel refurbed by Snappy on Cliosport forum for half leather - half alcantara. Gear stick gaiter refurbed in Alcantara. Headhunt changed for a decent bluetooth DAB set. Speakers front and rear changed. Exhaust - want something that sounds nuts when giving it he beans but nice and quiet(ish) when cruising. Eibach or H&R springs just to lower a tad - don't want to ruin the ride quality though. Tempted by an ITG Maxogen - sen the thread on here where it gave 6bhp more and had one previously so know the build quality is excellent. Remap - Looking to use the DIY RSTuner kit. Had it on my 182 and couldn't rate it highly enough. My main issue with standard is the cold start kangarooing, I hate it. The flat spot isn't an issue as I'm always higher up the rev range and didn't even know it was there until I read about it the other day. Thats the list for now, I'm sure there are plenty more you guys will suggest. I'll leave you with a few pics of how the car is now and just one of the 182 which I loved.
