    Thx Christopher !

    First you have to know, it's a long and hard "work". (In total around 2hours)

    So I started to clean them with my high pressure washing machine, the result was really not good...

    So I have put them in my bath during around 45min with a liquid detergent, and a very hot water (I added around 4 liters of 80 degrees water (with my Kettle))
    /!\ care to keep the belt system out of the water /!\

    To finish the work I used a hard brush with marseille soap (typically French soap)
    /!\ be careful to rub in the direction of the fiber /!\
    If possible dry in the sun

    Hope it will help you, and sorry for my bad English, I'm French.

    Yep vanish gold in a bucket with the belts stretched as far out as possible will do the same thing, but way less work!

    Nevertheless your car looks great. Love the sharp pics!

    I did it like this as well.

    Left both the fronts in a bucket of vanish overnight, gave them a quick scrub the next day and blasted them with the jet wash. Came out tons better!

    Hi there !

    I need your help about some updates... I have ordered a set of bilstein B14 coilovers, as you can see I have the originals wheels with some michelins PS3 in 205/45/16. I would like to put some spacers but no idea what size can fit without rubbing.

    Thx a lot guys for your help.

    Where did you order the coilovers from mate.

    And what wheels are you going to use? I'd rather different offset wheels than spacers tbh.

    Hello, I have ordered the set to ktec (delivery expected tomorrow). I have ordered the normal version 54mm because I have not the cup chassis option.

    As I said I will use the original wheels on my car (now I have only that onces, I have planned to by some turinis later) so If i do not make a mistake it's ET48

    Thx Greg.

    Depending how low you want it, probably 20mm front and ten rear.

    But depending on which turinis you get, the cup ones with a 38 offset they will probably scrub.

    Car looks great and the seats look very smart indeed :up:

    I just have 5mm Pure Motorsport spacers front and rear on my Arctic, those with CUP offset Turini's (slightly wider) is a good look I think as you've seen in my photos :blush:

    hi guys I have a question about the Speedline Turini alloys.

    I would like to buy a brand new set of the turini 16' (no renault clio version cup or trophy but speedline ones) but the center cap with the renault logo will not fit on that version (I think the hole for the center cap is larger than the original renault set) So do you know where I can found some renault center caps to fit on the speedline turini alloys ?

    Thanks a lot for your help

    Hi guys, so I come today to give some news... The car has an issue now, between the engine and the flight wheel you have a "rubber", the name in french is spy rubber and that small think is leaking :coldsweat: So my mechanic have a look at the car and explained that I'm not in the hurry but I have plan to fix the problem (the costs are heavy around 2000€ including a new climatisation compressor because mine is dead...) So Ihave to wait for my turbin plan....

    Good news, now the car has some B14 coilover and to be honest it is a real good and stunning modification, one of the must have. The car is really more handling and the grip is just "woooo"

    Some pictures of the car... No waiting for my 10mm spacers.

    Car is looking great mate. I didn't quite understand what part you mentioned has broken though? €2000 seems a lot irrespective of! Is it the air conditioning unit that has failed?

    Sorry dann i have ridden my text and there is some mistakes sorry the correction système is in French and sometimes he do not understand the words.

    The part where I have the problem is between the engine and the flywheel, that two parts are connectected with a sort of rubber. That part cost 80€ but you have to remove the engine or the gearbox to change the rubber, and that is the most expensive thing. I think in English it it the crank seal but not totally sure.

    About my climatisation, it seems to be the compressor costs around 350€ without installation, my garage proposed a compatible part at around 150€+installation.

    So all that interventions will cost around 2000€.
