    Yet another Clio. 55 RB 182.

    Nice to see it being looked after, I threw a lot of money at the car in the short time I owned it but it was great fun, did me really well!! The guy I got it from Nathan was a top guy too, he loved it and had really looked after it!

    Back to a Clio after 14 years....

    Thanks all, the car is running lovely now - Since buying it and driving it home I hadn't used it until the belts were all done so now I'm able to really enjoy it I just can't stop smiling, the induction and exhaust noise takes me right back to my first 16v Clio, very similar sound!

    Back to a Clio after 14 years....

    It was @Sir_Dave I had it in PGTI magazine (orange R5 Turbo on the front cover) :-) The Dimma's do indeed all look the same haha. The Clio's now had the belts and dephaser done so I'm now able to drive it and enjoy it which is great - Haven't had such a fun drive to work in ages!!

    The 'What MPG Do You Get?' Thread

    I've only done the one journey in the car which was 266 miles home from the Lake District and the car did 40.9mpg! Seriously impressed by that!

    Back to a Clio after 14 years....

    I've been around a while, and on Friday drove the short 266 mile journey up to the Lake District to purchase this: It needs a few bits to tidy it up, this week is having the cambelt, aux belt, de phaser pulley and anything else involved at that stage of the job. Wheels have all been taken off...

    My Renault History.... 16v, Dimma, GT Turbo & Megane 225

    Thought I'd just post these up as I still remember the days of owning each of them and miss them all fondly in their own way :o I keep thinking about scratching that itch for a Williams as it's one car I desperately wanted to own and they seem to be getting more and more expensive! 1st was...

    Paintless dent removal costs.....

    Frazer at Headley Bodyshop is also very good for this, based in Newbury (He possibly uses the same as the guys at Auto-Crash) - I know it's a mobile guy that tends to work for most of the bodyshops but I usually just get a price to have the whole car done, if it's a few on each door / quarter...

    Alloy wheel refurb Berkshire?

    Not sure if this has been sorted but I can recommend Frazer at Headley Bodyshop in Newbury (Tel 01635 898330) - He can do powder coating and all sorts, did a fantastic job on my RS4 rims for my Octavia (They were in a right state before)

    ClioSport Meet (2002)!! Power Engineering (With Pic)

    Yeah unfortunately Digi cam's weren't up to much then, and i wouldn't have really known what i was doing with it either lol. Nick Read was the guy that hat the Nitrous Clio, i think he went on to build it into a very fast Turbo 16v??

    ClioSport Meet (2002)!! Power Engineering (With Pic)

    You can't count for taste 10 years on - If you look at what was popular then compared to now.... even with the same cars people have completely different taste (although unfortunately some people STILL put Lexus lights on, they were never nice)! At the Power Engineering day Nick was there...

    ClioSport Meet (2002)!! Power Engineering (With Pic)

    To be fair 17's on Clio's were the nuts back in the day - I was only 18 so was absolutely over the moon to have a 16V - Silver were pretty rare then too:

    16" OZ SuperT's from a Laguna (99) 5-Stud?

    We've got a set of these sat at work, they came off a company car about 8 years ago but have just been sat there. I said i'd get rid of them but does anyone know what else they fit? They're 16" OZ Super turismo's (Silver), from a 99 T Plate Laguna 3.0 V6. Thanks guys.

    Exhaust wrap - how much needed

    All aftermarket exhausts catch on the Torsion bar unfortunately, it seems to get worse with Heat which i imagine is down to them Expanding, but i dont think youll completely get rid of it anyway mate..... How good to the Goose exhausts sound on the 16v though? Mine used to pop & bang all over...
