    As many of you already know I picked this up the day before yesterday.

    No real big plans. Maybe a steering wheel refurb and put the wheels back to anthracite.

    The paint is swirled to f**k but I haven't got time to give it a proper correction so it'll have to wait until the weather warms up a bit.

    Definitely recommend the H&R springs and spacers Ronald :up:

    That's lovely mate. A RB 200 would be the only Clio to tempt me back out of German. H&R springs and a little spoiler for the bootlid. Lovely.

    Awaits the 'OMG no Recaros, what were you thinking' comments...

    I might look at springs...

    Cheers :up:
    I am considering a spoiler but £300+ seems a bit steep. Maybe in a couple months time.

    I really wanted an RB but there just wasn't any about with Recaros. I'm not majorly fussed. These seats are comfy enough.

    Cheers mate. Completely different to the 182. Feels luxurious in comparison.

    Is it wrong that I like Stuke winglets?

    H&R spacers and some springs will make that sit proper nice.

    You say you won't do anything to it.
    However give it a year :wink: after seeing a few other people's and I bet it will have all sorts done. :smile:

    I'd have to have the recaros if I got one though (and brembos - not sure if they all came with brembos?)

    330ci sold quick didn't it?! Was a pearler that

    All came with Brembos. Silver calipers were standard chassis and the red calipers were to show cup chassis.

    Same calipers, just painted.

    Lovely car mate. Racing Blue suits the 200s a lot. Definitely go with anthracite wheels, or gold if you're feeling brave :smile:

    Thats gorgeous!

    Rb 200's look brilliant, i think it may be the best looking clio and colour combo, overtaking a liquid yellow r27.

    Lovely. f**k getting spacers, springs etc. Best thing about these cars is the handling. Brilliant out of the box, leave well alone.

    Standard seats are great, I had a recaro I sourced in my 200, ended up selling and going back to standard.

    I agree. I'm not the biggest guy but I just about found a position which is comfortable in the recaros. There will come a point where i'll outgrow them unfortunately.

    Looking good Ronald. Deffo get the wheels in anth, they look lost in black. It's missing a sticker too.

    Nice, best colour by far! Needs the spoiler to finish it off IMO.

    Exactly this...standard seats don't earn you internet cool pointz but they're more than adequate and you get no bolster wear. Also it's such a shame that Renault cover the steering wheels in layers of leather with the resilience of clingfilm...my 200 wheel at 42k miles was peeling all over yet my ST wheel at 61k still looks and feel like new!

    Love it Ron don, nice colour. I do like the black wheels and it ties in with the rest of the black on the car, although speedlines suit it lovely aswell.

    Isn't the Elia or GT spoiler quite cheap?

    @Brian posted a couple from the CS mansion yesterday :up:

    Cheers mate. I don't mind the black wheels but anthracite just looks better imo.

    I'll look for prices for a GT spoiler but I think they have to be butchered to get them on due to the bootlid being different on cars with the GT spoiler fitted.
