Brilliant update mate. Car is coming together really well now!
To be fair its only when you hit higher revs it kicks off, I just was not prepared for it! - if they have updated it maybe its quieter now?Gutted I never properly heard yours before it went, I get the feeling along with the induction kit it’ll make one hell of a racket...
Indeed, looking at places over the next week or so. Waiting for the paperwork to come through as that should give me a better idea of exactly where I’ll be!long time waiting mate..huge grats buddy..im sure you'll be great..does this mean relocating then??and more track focused bits to arrive??
Thanks John!Congratulations Ben, hope it works well for you.
Don't worry, i'll teach you how to mug people when you get here mate, so that you can blend in.Little personal update...just been told I’ve got the job in Birmingham and I start next month!
Now to find accommodation.....Clio will be left untouched for a few months now unfortunately!
Cheers Mes! Gotta go and get some new shirts and ties now, moving on up!Well done mate. Big things to come no doubt!
Hahahaha the best bit is I know you’re not even joking...Don't worry, i'll teach you how to mug people when you get here mate, so that you can blend in.
Too true!! Will have an awful hybrid accent soon.....Slowly moving up the country mate... you’ll be a northerner before you know it
Congrats on the job and looking forward to the future of this!! It’s awesome already!
A bitter-sweet post this Ben! Get where you're coming from, but equally if you're not running the car daily a track prepped car makes sense.Bad news...in a sense. Tentatively offered up the Clio for sale over the last week or so, got some serious interest in it now so it might well be on the way....plate is coming off this week... clears the driveway for something bigger, better and faster after Christmas though....still aiming for a diamond on the front though..! Cheap run around until then.
I'll still be around like a bad smell but this thread might well be finished! Not 100% had the car where I wanted it but if this offer goes through I haven't really lost out, I've just invested my time into it.
What a beaut of a car but sometimes we all have to call time. New job means car is sat around too much and I don't like that at all, bus pass means no need to drive. I can safely say I've taken a standard car and turned it into a complete beast of a track car - also can safely say I'll not own a car that sounds as good as mine for the foreseeable!!!
250/265 is the plan next I think! Devastated but the Clio is too track focused to be a daily round Birmingham, back breaking stuff. Waste of a car too, would have liked to get up to Donny before it went but I’d rather not risk it and stack it! I’ll be at Donny in whatever heap I buy for bridging the 6-8 month RS gap with my helmet for a few passenger laps if you’re around!A bitter-sweet post this Ben! Get where you're coming from, but equally if you're not running the car daily a track prepped car makes sense.
I believe I read elsewhere you're maybe planning a Megane at some point. That'd be good.
Stick around & maybe catch you at a #TeamClique track day sometime, hopefully even Spa!
You know me Pav, I'll have a 200 eventually, that was why I bought the R200 number plate!not a worry young Ben..you have your new job to focus on atm so this can easily wait..im sure you will be back with,as you said,a diamond on its nose
and of course,something a bit faster..
all the best and dont be a stranger buddy..
Haha fair enough man, cheers for reading, hope it kept you entertained for a little while. I will certainly keep this thread open for my new toy.Just read this from start to end. I commented on your Facebook post after the cage haha
Shame you're selling it. Looks well sorted
Dunner stress..... I was being cheeky anyway. Looking forward to getting what you do with a 250.Haha fair enough man, cheers for reading, hope it kept you entertained for a little while. I will certainly keep this thread open for my new toy.
Sorry if I was blunt at all on Facebook, had so many people pestering me for bits and as Pav said, new job so didn't really fancy stripping things, got enough to do without annoying my new landlord with half a car stuck on the drive!
