    Hi All,


    New here so not sure where to post, apologies. I've had a clio 200 gordini for a few months now and recently learned that I have one of only 2 black ones registered in the UK, and the only black one with the original stripes and alloys (found some pics of the other one for sale on ebay).

    However, I was planning on removing the centre box/ straight piping but am now unsure. What are others opinions on modifying a car that could be the only original one in the country?


    Cheers

    As long as you keep the original parts and don't do anything irreversible I don't see any problem with modifying it.

    Like Marsch said 99% of the stuff on it will be the same as a standard 200. As long as you don’t change anything like the paint/decals and sell the wheels etc you can always stick a stock exhaust system back on for resale if the profit margin will make it worth it.

    Cheers guys. Yeah I'd look to keep the original parts. Guess I will only look at easily reversible changes.

    Need to replace an alloy as the previous owner couldn't park so I'm gutted there aren't more around to pinch one from.

    Realised I don't actually have any pics of it clean on this phone! Attached one from when I bought it, but will need to have a photo shoot once it stops raining! Screenshot_20190625_165213.jpg
