    The cheap eBay ones don't have enough glitter sparkle in them.

    Use a heat gun and heat the clips at the back of the centre cap to soften them but be very careful not to melt them then bend them more than vertical let them cool.
    Just so happens I have a brand new set of Anthracite ones for R26 rims but I am having trouble getting the paint colour correct on the rims and also old ones so you can see the difference. They don't need an extremely tight fit as they are in the centre of the wheel but here it goes. You can see the old one with constant pressure the tab is not vertical and is bending inward slightly.

    I have no plans to drive clio in wintertime. It will be in heated garage until May.

    I have this winterbeater E46 2005.
    It is nice car. Unfortunately only 4 cylinders..
    My father bought this BMW new 2005, and it has been in our family since. I retrofitted bi-xenons. I also did full machine correction for paintwork + ceramic coating last summer.

    As far as I remember, russian cars might differ from typical European with a bit bigger washer fluid tank and more powerful battery. That's pretty much it for a cold climate options. I might be wrong though.

    No, it is really rare have seat heaters in clio 197/200..
    There is many cars for sale in Germany, and i have never saw seat heaters.

    It would be nice to drive clio 197.. but winter says no.
    There is only 1,5 weeks before 1. april and we still have something like half meter of snow.

    Hiya bud,

    How do you deal with the handbrake sticking given how cold it is in Finland, In the UK when we hit 0 or below, the handbrake cables get stuck a lot?

    Cheers

    Callum.

    Hello

    If handbrake cables freeze after washing car in wintertime, cables are worn and leaking water inside.
    You can replace cables diy really easy job, only 20-30£ / pair new cables. It fixes that.
