Jonesy's 172 Phase 1



  Clio 172 Phase 1
Right thought it was time I posted this, purchased my clio on saturday from a very nice chap, very genuine and when he told me the history of the car and showed me how much it's been looked after i had to have it! The guy even dropped the car off with his dad, saved me an hour plus journey to go get it ;)

A big big plus was the fact it has 68k miles and FSH :) Seen many of the same car with 100k plus!!

So then... one of the pics from the advert:

When the car arrived it was filthy, as the owner lives in a Village in Yorkshire, I told him not to worry as i would be cleaning the car the same day. No pics of this as it was only a quick clean, but heres my cleaning efforts from yesterday.

Before (still pretty clean!)

At this point my f*ckin pressure washer packed in on me, 2nd one in about 2 weeks, f*ck you Karcher!

Car was then washed, door shuts and wheels etc cleaned, then it was clayed, see below!

The weather then started to close in so I gave the car another wash, then applied some polish and a coat of wax, after pics (rubbish I know):

Like i say not the best of pics but i should be having a little photoshoot with JAM and his 197 at some point soon!

Not made any major plans just yet with the car but have ordered a few bits for now:

Clear indicator bulbs (no more fried egg headlights!)
6K HIDS
White sidelights
Flat wipers
ITG panel filter

Will update when these are fitted!

Cheers :)

very nice mate, love them when standard, but they're so much better modified correctly
 
  Maybe a 172 Cup..
Looking good mate. Love phase1's. Less is more in the mods dept;)

How much did you give for her, saw it on pistonheads myself, but not right time for me yet:dapprove:

The asking price mate, the lad was the soundest lad i could of hoped for very honest and because of his personal situation i was happy to give full price :)

And yea definately, only going to make subtle mods!

Haha, Jones you crank. Sold the 306 yet? And i knew you'd make the right choice in the end !

Haha stu you CRANK! Nope not yet mate sat on my drive lol

Cheers

Quick update, fitted my ITG panel filter yesterday with the help of JAM, was a bit of a b*****d getting the air filter open but eventually sorted it after plenty of swearing ;)

Have to say I haven't noticed any difference but at least it saves on buying a filter again :)
 
  Clio 172 Phase 1
Just an update, car passed it's MOT yesterday, straight through without any advisories, chuffed to say the least :)

With this in mind, I am on the lookout for an exhaust and a group N exhaust is what I fancy, any suggestions?

I'm thinking custom as the Oreca on K-tec for example is a little too pricey for me, Prospeed have quoted me 295 fitted for a similar style one.

Cheers :)

Exhaust Fitted

Orite guys, got a custom exhaust fitted today, very pleased with the result and would definitely recommend the chap that did it, details at the end of this post.

I went for straight through from the cat, the pipe is one piece up to the backbox, the tip I went for is 2.5inch outrolled.

Here are some pics almost done..

Very happy with the sound, doesn't drone on motorway and has a nice rasp too it, will upload a video at some point as well!

Again can't praise the guy enough and would recommend him:

Revline
Unit B3 Foxhunters Road
Whitley Bay Tyne and Wear
NE25 8UG
01912517904

Cheers :)

Looks good fag ! Told you he's alright.

Yours is slightly louder than mine though as mine's got that Vortex thing in.

Haha yea not much louder though sounds just right, love the rasp when giving it the beans though :rasp:

Lol @ Giving it the beans. Just need it lowered now.

Just to back up Jones' Comments.. The Guy who does the exhausts, I'd reccomend anyone one in the north east to check him out.

Here's the one he did on mine.
