    I agree, No time for shows any more and I want to drive the car where it's build for. It was an unique combination with the Roti's on. We have still the pictures.

    Things to do are for now painting new door handles (buttons fail) and thinking of painting the exhaust also black.

    I loved the old wheels. To be honest the new ones look great too though ! And i bet you can feel the difference driving it...

    And if they aren't working for your useage - then get shot and gt something that will !

    Keep the pics coming. Great car this........

    First trackday and it was awesome. It was cold, +/-5 degrees max. Damp track, but big fun.



    Now its time for semi's and some decent brake pads.

    Yes another user who fitted some AD08R's on a Clio. I'm sure they will give me more fun with the car.

    So time for some maintenance and a fresh MOT. Let the conrod bolts swapped for some ARP's just to be sure. And putted some camber/to on it. Front with Simo's camberplates and at the rear the Renault Sport shims.
