Got to say, I'm impressed with 'my' 197 so far. While it isn't quite so eager as a 1*2, the confidence it gives you down the lanes is very, very impressive. I was in full heal 'n' toe, chucking it about mode within no time at all. Have thought that a Clio might well replace the Escort as my rally car of choice in the future. Up until now, it would have been based on a 1*2 but, after a few days in the 197, I think my money would go on one of those instead.

Shame I have to give it back really!

My mate has been talking about removing the stickers from his car for ages, but he's lazy and has never got round to it. As a thank you for lending me the car, I said I'd give it a go. The weather was pap this afternoon so I put the car in the garage and cracked out the hairdryer.

Big improvement I think you'll agree. Shame half the front splitter is missing but they seem hard to come by.

Looks much much better mate. Top work.

Just got out of my 172 Monaco for this. Got it because it's liquid yellow, liquid yellow and liquid yellow. Also, it's liquid yellow. Don't get me wrong, I was really sad to let the 172 go, and if I had the space it would never have gone. But this feels less fragile and everything feels like it was assembled well. Famous last words, I'm sure....

Some better pics of my 197 Cup.
Still not finished. But up and running. Mapping at the end of the month at Efi.
Wheels are going Black have some new bolts sorted.

Hi buddy,

I see your car is an LV registered car. Thats my local office. Just out of interest, I dont suppose you know the name of the supplying dealer? Sorry to be nosy. I am just obsessed with numberplate codes....

Thank you!

I’m definitely not ruling it out 😂
They do look so much better lowered and spaced mate. Possibly slightly harsher ride from the springs, but I’ve never driven a 200 on standard cup pack suspension. From what I’ve read, most people say it’s neither here nor there though in terms of harshness. Mine drives fine though.

Good evening, I’ve been lingering around for a few weeks but now just paid my membership so I’m in. I’ve got 2 197s, physically 2 but it’ll just make one after I’ve stripped the donar car, so if any parts are needed let me know. P.s I’ve never been on a forum as such so be patient with my lack off technological knowledge.

Long time BMW man here. Had ///M cars for the last 12 years. Have a Z3, M235i & M2 in the fleet right now, but... Just picked up a 2009 Clio RS with Cup chassis, Recaros for track lulz.
