About time I put a thread up about this so here goes...
I was looking for a nice standard Clio 172 but all the one's I viewed and drove were dogs and overpriced so I eventually settled on a modified one and decided to 'unmodify' it slightly so it was the best of both worlds (please don't ban me lol). Well impressed with the standard kit levels: Cruise Control, Digi Climate Control, Half leather Alcantara Seats, Xenons etc.
Spec when I got it:
2004 in Iceburg Silver
Lowered on koni adjustable shocks and eibach springs (I've turned them down to the softest setting because I'm getting old and sensible)
Big Fish Tuning Remap with raised rev limiter
Scorpion Decat (fitted after the remap strangley) - NOW REMOVED AND SOLD
(plus fault light reset)
16" Pro Race 1.2's in Gloss Black - NOW REMOVED AND SOLD
Here's how it looked when I picked it up, I really didn't like the wheels, not my cup of tea at all:
Found a set of standard rims locally that needed a bit of TLC so I give them a quick refurb and swapped my tyres over:
Give it a quick wash today and took some pics as it stands:
As usual with second hand car's you don't find the faults until you've driven it for a good few miles, so far I've replaced the snapped seat cables so the seats actually flip forward, replaced the two broken fog lights, the bottom ball joints and the lower engine mounts. Just done an oil/filter change and now she's sweet as a nut! Next item on the shopping list is a rear badge from a 197 which I should have by next week
