Wheels look good actually! How did you paint them and dry them in 1 1/2 hours? Sorry to say but I'd fit a black rs grille, but leave the green behind the diamond.
I don't get why so many people seem to hate this. If all the Clio's were the same it would be boring. I like him doing something different to everyone else. My daughters black/black is lost in any car park
As has been said, stop doing things because you are bored... these mods will (and do so far) look s**t.
Rather than adding green s**te to your car, spend the time reading on the forum, getting ideas from other peoples projects and save yourself some cash to get some coilovers or new wheels for example. Brutally honest, it looks awful as it is now... there's no 'it's different so I like it' or 'if it's to the owners taste' about it.
Stop being so defensive too, you've posted them on here - you're going to get peoples opinions, most of whom have been in/around clios a lot longer than you have.
But this car looks s**t, lets be honest different isnt often a done scene for a reason.
but the wheels were a week job mate, the last wheel reacted so had to be stripped back and re-done, its still hardening now but the calipers and drums were an hour and half :L
WTF was you thinking?
Surely you can see that looks gash
First off I cant believe this thread is still going.....!
To be honest its not all bad, i actually think the wheels look alright and i quite like the idea of doing the bit behind the badge. But the grill looks totally sh*te im sorry! Im all for giving a car little accents and touches of colour but when you start spraying every bit that can come off the car it starts to look cheap and tacky like you havent got enough money to buy decent things like coilovers etc I dont understand why you would want to paint your drums bright green and attract attention to them, do them black!
On a positive note though I think the wheels and badge could be a cool starting point. Get it on some coilies are a reasonable height, sport rear bumper, sport grill and colour code the side strips and front bumper and it could look pretty cool!
Just my thoughts but good luck! Ive been there with a 1.2 and i would say to you dont throw lots of money at it because you will never get it back! Spend some and save some for a 1*2, they are so much more fun!
Not to my taste what so ever, however you're pulling away from the crowd which is good for you.
Think the end result on the wheels was great, drums not so great.
I'd say tone the green down somwhat but it is your car and only you can chose what to do. ^^
just a suggestion; stop buying spray for a month or so and buy a 1*2 rear bumper. (and you could maybe spray the insert green? - I wouldn't spray it green though.)

Honestly don't know what to say to this without be harsh. But mate, it stands out because it looks utterly awful. If you get looks, its not because it looks good. I'm all for being a little different but this just comes across as a 'hmmmm, what can I do to my car as quickly as possible, f**k it, i'll paint everything green!' Just take you time! There's no rush. Patience really is a virtue when it comes to doing things to a car. Your wheels do look nice though, and the front badge. For heavens sake get an RS grill and keep it black. And paint your drums black.
