GFWilliams 197 F1



  Clio 197 F1
First post here, had this just over a week now and love it! It's got the recaros which is what really matters ;)

A few pics... (I'm yet to take any proper ones)

I should probably mention I'm a car photographer :)

When I first bought it I thought I'd modify it loads, but having spent some time in it I now only want to do a few things. I put new disks and pads all round on it earlier this week (all standard parts, didn't think it was worth upgrading), new steering wheel coming from Ktec (next week sometime apparently) and then I will get the wheels refurbed (shall I go black?) and get new sticky tyres (any suggestions? Got to be good/safe for every day use as I do quite a few miles). Tempted by an exhaust too...

I look forward to being a part of the Cliosport forum :D

Looks awesome!

Brilliant pictures as well.

But noooooooooo to black wheels! They're perfect as they are.

xenons/projector headlights
supersprint/akrapovic exhaust
30mm springs
20/25mm spacers

oem+ ftw

Very nice. Completely agree with the above. Anthracite wheels look great plus they match the f1 decals

Xenons are a good idea, as much as anything to make it a lot nicer to drive at night!
Exhaust I need to think about which one I want. I don't want it to sound "halfords"...
Not lowering this, it looks great as it is (IMO) and rides and handles great.
Already got spacers on it from the previous owner

Never a truer word said ;)

Looks awesome, love a good 197!
Thanks :)

Thanks, I do like the way it is, and it just grows on me the more I see it!

I disagree - black with racing blue looks great
I think it would look better on the metallic blue though, can't make up my mind!

Nice step up from the Mini, George. Nice to have you on board mate.
It's a very nice change, now need to get round to selling the Mini!

Yeah, I'm on the other forum too :)

Ah yes, I remember :)

That looks lovely - A cup spoiler and some projectors will finish that off nicely :)
I can't make up my mind on the cup spoiler, a week ago I really wanted one, now I quite like the look of it without it!

Welcome George! Didn't expect to see you in a Clio! ;)
Hi Dawn, hope you're well!

I didn't expect it either, but I couldn't resist...

The akrapovic and the supersprint are the two best systems out for these.

Gaz Is selling an akra on here iirc.

If I had the cash I'd have either.
Does the Akra fit on a 197? The tips all look like clio 200 tips?

Wrong Gaz.

Love the pics, I've followed your Facebook page a long time ago, didn't realise you were a CS member.
Thanks Gaz, I'm only just becoming active. I had an account from before for some reason (can't remember why, might have been because I took some photos of some Clio V6s a while back) but only now do I have my own car :D

Nice pick up mate!

My thoughts? Sprint spoiler, Akrapovic and refurb rims in OEM anthracite!

Then take lots of awesome pics 8)

Enjoy!
