Tims Racing Blue 200 - NOW SOLD - S2000 PROGRESS STARTS PAGE 6- COILOVERS ON PAGE 12

Thought I might aswell start a thread to keep everything in the one place.
Bought the car Jan 2013 after parting with my much loved civic type s gt (first car). Originally I was on the hunt for a type r, an integra dc5. Coming across an unmolested one was proving rather tricky and then I turned my attentions to a championship white civic type r (fn2). I was on my way to view a type r when I spotted the clio in the forecourt and had to have a closer look.

Initially impressions where WOW, that colour as this is what initially caught my eye as I was driving past. I took it for a test drive and well I had to have it! No questions! I never even made it to see the type r.

Due to it having a private plate I had to wait like 3 weeks or so until I could finally pick it up. God it killed me!

This is how she looked when I bought her on private plate.

I remember my first couple of weeks with the new car was when there was heavy snow so It was hardly to really enjoy as much as I should have. First pictures taken.

First thing first, support the forum :smiley:

and it needed pads and disks all round as brake travel was horrendous.

Next up was black RS centre caps from ebay

Sounded absolutely fantastic :smiley: so much better than standard! Was really pleased.

Attended my first couple of meets and had a few pics snapped. Car was filthy though :worried: @-Eddie- 's car looking stunning as usual also

One of my headlight bulbs blew so I used this as an opportunity to change the lot of them. 6000k mains and dipped and 5 LED 501 sidelights. Also changed the interior and boot bulbs to LEDs. Thanks to [MENTION=3002]-Eddie-[/MENTION] and [MENTION=26158]Mi16chris[/MENTION] for their help in sorting the problems out.

Next up was 25mm h&r spacers courtesy of [MENTION=3002]-Eddie-[/MENTION] . Car was crying out for these to really complete the stance. I think they are superb.

My latest mod then was to have a my centre silencer cut off the ktec system my cat removed. I had a custom straight through pipe fabricated which runs from pre cat to back box. Sounds mental on full chat, I absolutely love it! Not too OTT but certainly more aggressive than the resonated ktec. If you find the ktec a bit too quiet like I did, I would highly recommend this mod.
Especially now the cat is removed, exhaust pops and bangs good bit more

I have a ktec induction kit sitting here waiting to be fitted, and once the weather improves will be de-badging the CLIO from the rear and fitting my black diamond badges front and rear (just the cheap ones from ebay for now until I decide if I want to bond some carbon ones on)

Other than that I think on down the line will be a full interior retrim (alcantara/leather) and possibly more lows but I have caused numerous garages headaches with fighting to get my car on the ramp as is due to the RS side skirts lol.

Ill leave you with a few recent, up to date photos of the car.

Thanks for reading and all comments welcome.

Tim

Good job man. Tasteful mods :smile:. Will be good to hear the exhaust now without a silencer.
 
Great thread, great mods.. love it :thumbsup:
Thanks Angel. Everytime I see your car I want a carbon bonnet so much :001_tt1:

Need more ideas for mods. Other than remap, retrim and maybe more lows I'm running out of ideas lol. Maybe some black door handles.
 
Got my Ktec induction kit fitted in no time thanks to [MENTION=26158]Mi16chris[/MENTION] . Only downside is you can barely hear it because the exhaust note. Its so loud and raspy :-/
 
No problem man she's a loud one lol 
Haha! Sort of think its just too raspy now, don't you think? Gave it the beans heading home and it really does make people stare over. Wonder if it sounds different/better from the outside. I'll need to try get a video.
Hopefully if I get the awful flatspot sorted or a least a darn sight better than what it is it will be sweet.
