    O/s driveshaft advice needed

    Hi all, I noticed a clicking noise coming from the front of the car on the weekend. I managed to get up onto my friends ramp, and it’s play In the support/ intermediate bearing on the o/s driveshaft. The rest of the driveshaft doesn’t look to be in great shape. My question is do people...

    Suggestions for a clio 197 suspension upgrade

    I have some cup suspension for sale, brought from a member on here but ended up buying some coil overs before I’d fitted the cup suspension. It’ll be the same top mounts as yours I think.

    Exhaust mounts/ hangers help

    Hi guys tried fitting the new exhaust today after the standard one fell apart. The diffuser didn’t want to come off, and then the rear hangers were completely shot. Where can I buy new rear exhaust mounts from that the hangers attach too? I can’t seem to find them anywhere

    Exhaust centre box blowing.

    Yeah I’ve got grinders welders etc, I might try one of these. Is there one that could delete the secondary ( main) cat at the same time? My only reservation is that I’ve read that just deleting the centre box can make the flat spot worse? Mines already pretty terrible. If it can be Mapped out...

    Exhaust centre box blowing.

    Hi, the exhaust has started blowing really badly, I had a look underneath it today, and it’s from the weld going into the centre box. I’m wondering if this the perfect excuse to fit an uprated system. Which systems do people recommend ? i’ve seen gravity ones on the bay which look half decent...

    Radio code not working - error code displayed

    thats just the label on the front of the amp, I thought that was all I needed to do on that I’ll pull the amp out and check the numbers on the back. I’ve already tried the 0769 code to no avail. the stereo hasn’t worked since I’ve had it, I just thought it was a case of putting the code in...

    Radio code not working - error code displayed

    So am I right in thinking the head unit is the wrong one for the amp then? is there a work around or do I need to buy replacements for both? Thanks Chris

    Radio code not working - error code displayed

    Hi guys, I’ve had my Clio up and running for a week now, and I love it! There’s the normal few gremlins arising but I expected that. Not having a radio all week is one of them, and even more annoyingly, the lack of a clock ( because of the stereo) It’s a cabasse head unit, with the amp under...

    197 tuning newbie questions

    I’m fully onboard with high reving engines, my race car has a hayabusa motorbike engine fitted, which only has about 110 ft lb of torque, but revs to 12,000 I’ll leave the engine and look at cup suspension, maybe wheel spacers, more research on here into handling upgrades. I’ve renewed all...

    197 tuning newbie questions

    Thanks J18NYR. Brakes wise it already has the Brembos and pretty big discs on, so I was thinking it’ll just be a case of putting a set of decent discs on and up rated pads for the track. Tyres wise I’m going to get another set of wheels, running something like Michelin pilot sports on the road...

    197 tuning newbie questions

    Hi, I brought my first 197 last night to use as a daily and track toy. I plan to go back to the Nurburgring and spa next year with it. I brought it knowing that the exhaust flexes are blowing and that the cam belt needs doing, as well as a good service etc. My question is while it’s having the...
