    Shuv's Racing Blue 200...................

    One Month and one Day AC. Thats 'After Clio' :tearsofjoy: And i've not missed it one iota. That alone is enough to tell you our time was up. In saying that i'll happily reiterate what an utterly fantastic, emotion stirring, make you feel alive car it was. That i enjoyed owning fully, loved...

    Not Been On For A While - Quick Update

    Really sorry to hear on the passing of your Mother Col...... Sounds like you're not short of vehicles to choose from ! Although we'd of course all like elusive pictures of the mythical LY beast outside :tearsofjoy: Just sold mine. Not beyond the realms i'll get 'another'. But trying something...

    Shuv's Racing Blue 200...................

    Ha ! They are a little different agreed; but would be bought per-se to encapsulate a total budget. To include an Enduro bike at this stage or not accordingly. But in essence are both entirely 'drivers' cars. One as a cheap-for-what-it-is daily (Fezza); and one to be used on a Sunny Sunday...

    Shuv's Racing Blue 200...................

    Thanks Suj. At the moment I’ve got two serious considerations in mind. Which on paper are poles apart. But in essence are both supposed to be great drivers cars. And would follow on from the Clio being a real drivers car in different ways.... 1. A fiesta ST. I could get something 6 years newer...

    LY200 - too loud or blow up again, taking bets!

    This. Videos is ‘all’ - we the jealous - require now Rich. I won’t sleep until it’s done. Only you can save me :-) LOVED the last / only one I saw of you on track. And remember the eagerness of pick-up, the acceleration, noise and rawness - all accentuated by your lower final drive. ITB’s will...

    Lower seat rails / suspension questions

    Really ? ! Hmmmmmm......... It's not 'amazing' with. Its 'ok' if i'm honest. I wasn't unhappy. But it wasn't stand-out good as in looks / gap / matching the passenger side etc. Without would look truly shocking - and like you i wouldn't even consider that option. At any price. Or even FOC !

    Shuv's Racing Blue 200...................

    Thanks for the kind words Yiannis...... My ebay watch-list is a mess. 'Apparently': I'm looking to spend somewhere between 5 and 15k. It will be something with between one and 6 cylinders and somewhere between 2 and 4 wheels :tearsofjoy:

    Time will tell on the 'regret' ! New owner may or may not chime in. Or he may just be too busy out enjoying himself........ :sunglasses:

    Beanys RB 200 cup

    Ouch. Hate that shit.... I removed my wiper arm from the spindle to refit a new one. To be fair I had to make my own puller at work and it was still hair raising working within 1” of glass and paintwork..... Feel your anguish !

    Shuv's Racing Blue 200...................

    Thanks Ben. Yea - You saw it alright. In your rear view mirror, rocking around the back-roads of rural Norfolk; me clinging on for dear life trying to keep up with you. And that was before you had an extra 100bhp in-hand !!! :tearsofjoy: :smile: :sweatsmile: Just been outside for a smoke to...

    Shuv's Racing Blue 200...................

    We never argued or came to blows. And you certainly never let me down. Infact seeing your fat-ass always cheered me up on those down days :hearteyes: But the relationship had somehow gone a little flat. You were still keen to give - but i'd become distant and withdrawn. We just couldn't be...

    Shuv's Racing Blue 200...................

    Up early doors for an interim clean. Managed to whip-round the outside in just 5 hours. Some of that due to looking like it was going to rain. Shortly after i took the pics - the sun came out :tonguewink: Ceramic coating is growing on me. Slightly easier to clean. Water beads off like crazy =...

    Lewis's RB Clio 197

    Looks well that buddy. Like it grew there :sunglasses: I'd possibly like something similar for mine. But 200 options seem to comprise of hoofing great 'look at me coming splitters' and not much else. So i'm quite jealous of you 197 boys in that respect...... :dizzy:

    BMW M235i vs Clio 200

    “Connected” is the key word there for me. The two smallest cubic capicity motorbikes I’ve ever owned (One 400cc road-going and one 250cc for green laning) have been the most fun I’ve ever had on two wheels. The Clio is much the same on 4 wheels. Then again I’m not a power-freak; and top speed...
