    Standard Cup suspension or lowering springs?

    Wondering if anyone can help me out with my Clio I recently purchased. Looking at the ride height I think it has been lowered. I think it is on lowering springs with everything else standard but not 100% sure. It's a Cup which I know sits slightly lower than the non cup but it looks like it has...

    Difference between 197 and 200 suspension set up

    Hi all, I am on the fence whether to buy Clio III 197 or 200. Is there any difference in suspension setup between these two? I read the facelifted one should be a bit softer. Is it true? Is it a noticeable difference? Is there anyone, who has driven both, and could compare them? Thank you!

    197 Rear Damper Removal Tips?

    Best thing to do with standard non cup suspension

    I bought a non cup 197 clio that i want to use for sprints, hillclimbs and trackdays. What is the best thing to do with the suspension on a budget? I don't think I can stretch to coilovers atm. Am I better getting springs / cup springs / just leaving it for best handling? Thanks in advance!

    Spring Colour Codes

    Hello, I'm looking to change my shocks/springs to non-cup and need some information on the colour markings. The 197 buyer's guide has great info on 197s but I can't seem to find info on 200s. As far as I can gather the spring markings are: 197 non-cup front: blue/green 197 non-cup rear...

    Spring Rates & Damper Rebound - Rid me of this dreadful 200 Cup suspension

    Hi All, as per the post title. Has anyone come up with a solution to tame the awful damping of the Cup set up, on a 200? I'm now 1500 miles into my ownership, the last 300 miles being on the usual poor quality tarmac and undulating roller coaster of British B roads. I cannot fault the 200 in...
