    Mk1 widetrack vs. Mk2

    182 inlet manifold top part

    there wont be any gain from swapping between them, they are the same bore. im pretty certain theyre all the same but there may be extra hose fittings on some.

    my clio 1.2

    I think the 172 rear bumpers need skirts on the side to make them look more at home! other than that, it look superb from the back, front is getting massively let down by the jap plate and white grills imo!

    Falling out of love with Clio...

    you can add me to that list too!! i spend so long building my track car and quite a bit of money on it. 6 months after finishing it and im considering what i would swap it for... maybe 3series BMW or a bike of some kind. For now ive cancelled the insurance policy and garaged it until the summer...
