B01D9B26-7CB5-4E67-83EC-1224B865214D.jpeg Well I thought it’s better late than never, so I’ll re-introduce the Clio and have it’s own little place, prob much to the dismay of the admins :smile:

Where to start well, she’s a 2012 racing blue cup that I acquired back in 2015 and it’s been it lovely relationship, sure she has her niggles and loves a drink but the thrill and smile she puts on my face is worth it!

She has had some modding done to her which is a resonated scorpion de-cat back which sounds amazing with nice little pops on letting off and red hoses to the engine bay

Currently looking for some fresh rubber as the fronts are looking close, hearing a lot of good reviews for the PS4’s so might make the switch from eagle f1s.
Tomorrow however is D-day or cambelt time so I’m ready to drop some cold cash on her being sorted and serviced!

Planned mods, changing the side bullets from silver to black, new alloys/refurbed in white or maybe some recaro’s because well she’s a cup and like to get some more track days in whilst keeping her as my daily still.

Well thanks for reading and more than likely slow updates :smile:
Also 1k posts woop woop!

You beat me to it! I need my own space at some point rather than rambling on with spontaneous threads!

Hope D-Day goes well, I have the “Service Due Soon” devil message appear on mine, and it’ll be the belts! So let me know how it all goes!

Nice one Beany! Thought yours was totally standard but... WRONG! Sounds like you’ve got some decent plans lined up. At this rate you’ll be on track sooner than @Chris *hint*

Great start. Nice to have your own space to post about what you're up to and what you've got planned! I like my own thread just for my own ramblings like a diary.

I’m thinking Beany might have popped his cherry already:thumb:
Thank Micah, yeah she may look standard but there’s been afew subtle mods done :wink:

And yes as to how Bens put it, I have popped my track cherry already :smile:

Definitely need a set of spacers on there! Fill out them arches :wink:
That’s a good point. I’d recommend the route me and Shuv took with the 10mm Pure Motorsport rear hub spacers (get a garage to fit them, took me hours!) and 5mm spacers on the front. Will need new bolts though, so add some TPI ones to your shopping list :wink:

I’m always dubious of spacers no matter how great or small they are. She’s riding stock cup suspension / springs so isn’t exactly slammed and seems to be set up right... at the last Xmas meal myself and Syer were parked up side by side and noticed mine had a slight camber to the set up

Fair enough! I didn’t notice any difference in handling, but if you like it as it is, I’ll find something else for you to buy [emoji16]
