Adams RB-182



  Astra H vxr
Hi people right ive had my RB182 since september after selling my saxo vts :eek: so decided to keep to a french car , dunna why after the amount off money i spent fixing my vts over the 3 years i had it i should off gone the opposite direction from french cars but just fell in love with the rb182 :approve: i originally went to look at the inferno 182 but decided the rb was more me :rasp::rasp: i havent done too much to the car but have slowly added a few things to it to make it look abit better then it was, when i viewed the car it had a few things wrong with it , every wheel was scratched and got a few car park dints here and there as you do being a 8 year old car , but its got a slight dent on the drivers side rear arch but it can easily be sorted , so that aint to bad only thing thats not great is the passenger door its got a scratch about 4inches long but also been told its easily sorted but but i knocked the guy right done on price to get the car as its got full service history and also just had an mot and cambelt done and 4 new tyres and tax , before i get any body work done ive decided to get it looking as good as i can before i pay to get the important bits doing dents n few scratches, heres a few pictures of how the car was when i got it.....not great pictures as done by phone

i then got some wheels to go on the car but then decided just to keep the originals as looked better IMO

then decided to put my private plate on just to make it look a little better surname is SLATER so managed to get a plate to say "S18 TAA" which in a kinda short text reads slater :quiet:

first thing was too lower it on eibachs sportlines must say they was a great comfy ride but wasnt for me as was sitting still to high so i decided to put it on apex for the mean time until i go down the coilover route which will come shortly

also after a bit off decision between the scorpion rs192 and a piper exhaust i went for the piper and must say the sound is perfect for what i want :rasp:

also a skoda splitter was needed :rasp:

i got abit bored of the colour off the dash strips so decided to vinyl wrap them carbon looking which IMO doesnt look too bad

then decided to do the badge to see how that would look and also decided too keep it wrapped :)

it was then time to get the most scratched wheels refurbed so reading a thread about powder coating i decided to get them powder coated in the original colour as was debating between them and black but decided didnt wanna go black

my car finally is starting to get how i want it minus the french car flag on the grille its now gone :)
but last week end on my way into town a car coming towards me decides to run over something that happened to flick up and then decide to hit my bonnet :mad: looked like a wheel bolt as saw it fly up but to late to move away :eek: and oviously to dangerous to swerve any how, but knows its left me with a nice chip and dent on my bonnet which is now on my next to do on my list which has p*ssed me off :(

photo-52.jpg


photo-53.jpg


im not too sure on how il go about getting the bonnet sorted as im not to sure if a dent sprayer garage can do anything with it ? or if its done to me having to buy a new bonnet for them to respray , but just worried it wont colour match properly being such a light colour :(

next on my list i wanna get done is....

-matched inlets
-panel filter
-cams preferbly catcams (had catcams fitted on my saxo vts and was very impressed :rasp:)
-and then either a rstuner 98ron map or take it down to ktec for them to do the remap?

soon to be updated :cool:

thanks mate :)

i would love to say i have got pics from which i have but there on my old phone of my eibachs :( and only got pics on new phone of apex :(
personally i cant see anything wrong with the apex i know they got quiete a bad rating by alot of people, i rarely use my car for track days my car maybe on an occasional day once a year type of thing (as apex i cant see being very good on track as what eibachs are as eibach seem to corner better ) , and the ride quality is a little bit crashier then the eibachs but not to the point where its knocking you out of sit position, but they give the perfect drop where as the eibachs lowered only a slight which i wasnt to chuffed about so decided apex was for me, untill i can get more money for some coilovers, but there not that bad imo mate :) look 10x better then what eibachs make your car look like, just a little bit more bumpy

Thanks for the info mate. That makes my decision alot harder now as i was set on eibachs.
May have to find some pics of clios on eibachs and try and make a decision.
How much were the apex springs?

Oh lol I went for eibachs as they got highly rated on here on which I know why as they handle very well with a nice comfy ride, soo got them an then wasnt happy as it wasn't low enough for me :(where apex was when I saw my mates with them on il upload a pic of mine on Apex side view and u can compare it to the eibach there is a appreciation thread for eibachs I think Mate which has loads of pics with eibachs on, they was £99 delivered :)
 
  Clio 182
From looking at a few pics i can see theres quite a big difference, especially on the front.
thanks mate that would be great.
 
  Astra H vxr
Lovely mate. I was parked right by you at FCS.

Bad scratch down the passenger side though :(
I know it's horrible I've touched it up now and you can't see it that much tbf should of done it before FCS lol but because of that scratch I knocked 1k of asking price so can't complain :p hardly noticeable now of such but I know it's there so need to get it done soon though lol

haha yeah no doubt sooner or later with the clios on James drive oil patches will appear lol :p yeah I wasn't too keen on 182 wheels at first but that's proberly because when I got mine every one was in a right state couldn't be more scratched as kurbed if I tried lol but only just got them all re done and powder coated al now Theyve grown back on me :D
