    Yeah, they may be a no no as both the spoiler and splitter require holes in the boot and bumper sadly :worried:

    Well just a very small update regarding the finer things for the LY.

    I recall many years ago I wanted a sticker that I hunted for and even my dealers could not get as no part number for it.

    I managed to get one after months of looking for my Clio 182 Trophy.

    Now that I have the Clio 197 I noticed the sticker had vanished also which is does over time due to wiping it and it fading so I went down the long road and channels and ended up getting a couple of replacements and they are Genuine items.

    That is very cool, can imagine they were a mission to get!! Never seen a replacement one myself, so glad the one in my 182 is still in great condition!

    Nice :up: that's a bit frustrating about the print here and there but to be honest, more important it's genuine. Great find!

    Gave the wee thing a clean today and loved just looking at it.
    Its hard to believe that this car has not had any polish or wax in 2 months of ownership and the colour is still amazing.

    I'm interested in removing & cleaning the rear rubber from my 182. Is it simply a process of taking your time and being gentle with it? Or did you use any specific tools?

    Cheers,
    D.

    Bonnet vents uncovered for track days, numberplate removed, with holes behind.Cooling now no problem. Vents are not pretty, but have cured any sort of overheating.

    No! 200 five spokes don't belong on a 197, they barely belong on 200s. Raiders or speedlines ftw

    Did you buy litchys car?

    Another small update from the weekend.

    Managed to fit genuine front discs / pads and pin kit and while doing that I found something that was bad.
    Brembos are screwed, So today (Monday) I bought two new front brembo callipers from Renault and its booked in later this week for them to be replaced with a brake fluid change.

    I then had a spare 30mins so I fitted my power flex top mount on the car also.

    Small update in the 197.

    Managed to get myself a nice Clio 200 diffuser and I also bought a new decal for the rear window.

    So once again another update on the LY

    Thanks to SWR (Striling) as they have done an amazing job on the car with all the work and making how I have wanted it.

    Well the two rear nuts on the standard 197 diffuser at the back where seized and snapped, Thankfully the guys at SWR fixed all that with taking the brackets off and putting two new bolts on them with fresh washers and nuts.

    Getting the old 197 diffuser took 30 secs if that and was really easy to do.
    My main concern was having a full Miltek system and that the tail pipes would not fit or rattle inside.

    Anyway it was worth a shot and it paid off all be it its "TIGHT" and I mean very tight.
    I have had the 200 diffuser on for a good number of days and put it through some hard work trying on purpose to get it to rattle, Speed bumps, Rumble strips, Twisty B roads & Gravel tracks and not one squeak or rattle at all.

    Love the attention to detail :cool:

    Can't help notice the passenger side door/rear quarter, had paint? Stands out in most pictures?

    Also never been a fan of the 200 diffuser. I ran one on my 197 cup as I had an aprakovic but sold it on as I never got on with the looks

    Id have gone with satin black sleedlines too :smile:

    Love the 200 Diffuser. Always preferred the 200 to the 197!

    Got the car cheap cheap so I can't complain


    Looking at the car in pictures and I person it is crazy but the paint depths all match as it's going in for warranty work from renault and they check all that and as fair as they are aware the car ain't been painted
