Hi,

Had the car for just over a year now and thought i'd share it.

Got the car from K-tec racing with only 16k on the clock. I had them do a few things before collection. They fitted and Akrapovic Evo, Indcution kit, remap, short shifter, cup wing and a re-trimmed wheel. Drove down from Aberdeen to collect it and drove it all the way back home without a hitch.

Recently had the major water pump/timing belt service and also decided to fit some 330mm brake discs from Reyland motorsport. Also swapped out my Michelin PS4 for some PS cup 2s, not great in the wet or when cold but amazing once up to temperature.

Lovely car, spec and upgrades. Yea.....real nice indeed ! And No1 to boot. Very cool.

Brakes, tyres and wheel pic looks awesome. Tyre sidewall is a looker as they go. Unmatched centre caps arent however :sunglasses:

3000 miles in a Clio ? Sheez. If my work was any further than 8 miles away i'd be thinking of chopping it in......

Good on you for starting a progress thread. What else do you have planned (Apart from buying new centre-caps......not that i'm anal or anything !) ?

Never even noticed the centre caps before haha. Potentially some bilstein coilovers. Did the 500 mile drive from K-Tec no problem so whats an extra 2500? :think:

What a great car! And great photos too. Great intro, why haven't we seen this beauty before?

Super cool owning number one for sure! Great list of tastefully done mods you have too.

Regarding the coilovers, if you want to go the extra mile, I have adjustable Bilstein on mine and I couldn't recommend them enough!

Definitely sort the centres! How have you not noticed??? :smiley:

Ace car mate, looking forward to seeing more.

Thought my car was dead for a minute. Driving along then smell burning and see smoke coming out the back of the car. Pull over open bonnet, smoke starts billowing out. Turns out my battery cover has decided to get some warmth on the exhaust manifold

RIP.....:smile:

Not thinking of buying black centre caps to match ?

Non genuine 57mm items (That fit well, look great and are good quality) can be had from £8 a set upwards on eBay.

14 months on mine with zero issues.....

Yep centre caps will finish it off nicely! That's the second battery tray I've seen commit it's self on the manifold!

Lovely car Jack. Nice to have no. 1 too! Looks like you've gone back to PS4 tyres. Did you not like the PS Cup 2? I'm going to be needing new tyres later in the year & was considering either of these, or possibly PS 4 for road & a set of PS Cup 2 for track days.
