I fitted lowering springs to my 1.2 clio of the same era as yours and with the 172 alloys on handled really well. I would imagine you ‘could’ fit 172 shocks and springs without doing the whole widetrack fitment which might give the ride and height of a 172.
Yeah it’s my boot that creaks especially when I back off my drive or go on a funny angle!
And I’ve not heard of gearbox problems…. (Fingers crossed!!) but I know the software was crap hence the software update being a good idea to pay for on ph1.
I’ve had it 3 months and *yes it has. Had the gearbox software updated at Renault, spark plugs and aux belt and tensioner changed due to age and little trim bits replaced but on the whole it’s really good. Also don’t have any rattles. Creaks, yes a few, but rattles, no!

Yeah sorry, I couldn’t think then what it was, but I used a length of pipe and a filter. It passed an mot too with it on. Agreed very strange name, but when you do it it does look like an elephant trunk (unless mine was too long! Ha)
Good progress and nice to see the golf being saved! Looks much better now.
when I had my Fabia vrs I did the ‘elephant mod’ which did feel like it made a difference. Worth having a look for a few quid.
