My 1.2 16v Dynamique



  Clio 172 2.0 16v
Hi there,

I'm new to the forum and just thought I'd start a thread to get to know people.
I haven't as yet done much to the car, but am hoping to crack on with the project as soon as my car has got through its MOT at the end of march.

Thanks alot, I have a couple yeah, not the best pictures in the world.

Plans are:
Colour code bumpers, side strips and door handles.
RS front grille.
Coilovers.
Deep dish alloys (not sure which ones, ideas ?)

any ideas what coilovers you are going to go for as i am probably gonna put some on mine this year at some point when i get money and time, and i have no idea which are good for the 1.2.

gonna keep an eye on this.

did you put the side repeaters on, if so which ones and where from?

Alright sbridgey, Yeah its the money thing for me too mate coilovers aren't cheap for the clio. I've got my eyes on a V-Maxx set at the minute, they're £400 on ebay. Yeah please do mate, I will update it as and when I have new stuff to show. Yeah I did put the side repeaters on, they're auto-art ones from ebay, they're alright.

Take a look at rokkor coilovers, may need to change your hubs over but for £180 for tye Coileys (less when your member on here) it will still work out LOADS cheaper than V-Maxx ones

Ahhh yeah, I've heard of Rokkor coilovers and e-mailed them asking about fitment to my car and they told me they didn't do a kit that would fit, is that to do with the hubs you mentioned earlier ? I might just get the V-Maxx ones though, I dunno. Guess I'll have to see how money is. How do I become a member on here ?

Any of you guys know why my front fog lights should not work ? and also I have my MOT coming up at the end of march, wondered where I'd stand if I have front fogs installed but they don't work ? Any help would be much appreciated,
Cheers

should be fine considering its not something every car has to have, that is my opinion. (you are turning the fogs on when the headlights are on right iirc they dont work if headlights not on)

So I do :) Yours is looking much better than mine at the minute though. I don't have those black tail lights on it now, changed back over to the originals this weekend. I love the colour of the car.

Haha, mines alright. getting slammed this weekend hopefully :D Yeah, I made the mistake of changing the rear lights once, looks so much better standard in my opinion. I love this colour to, not to many about.

Ahhh yeah, I saw on your thread that your coilies had arrived. What you got ? That'll be sweet, make sure you post pics I wanna see. ;) I'm gonna be getting me some V-maxx after my MOT. Not doing to much to mine till after then, except maybe RS grille and just little bits. Yeah I didn't realise how nice the standard ones are until I changed them over, bit of a bummer. I agree, we are a bit of a rare breed.

I went for some Rokkor coilovers, cheap and chearful, as im after looks rather than performance. RS grille and lowered will look good mate, maybe some alloys?
Yeah, we are, love being not such a common colour

Ahhh right, yeah I've heard quite a lot about those, but for some reason I still really want the V-maxx ones. Exactly what I'm thinking, I might colour code as well, think it'll freshen it up a bit. I know, I never see any our colour out on the road. Is that K-tec stealth system you've got worth it ? I'm really tempted to buy a reasonably cheap but nice sounding exhaust system.

I want to colour code, but dont have the balls to do it myself and i dont really want to pay to get it done. The exhaust system is really good, i love it. check out my video on my blog.

Haha. neither do I, I know I'd end up making it look sh*t. Think I'm just gonna find a decent place and pay for it to be done properly, can't cost that much can it ? Ahhh yeah I saw the video, sounds amazing, guessing it sounds even better like actually hearing it from the car. Think I'm gonna get me an RS grille ordered. What you planning next ?

haha yeah, that's what I was thinking, people kept telling me to do it myself but I don't have the confidence. Yeah the exhaust sounds so much better in real life. RS is a great little mod, really smartens up the front end. Ermm, im not to sure, coilovers are going on this Saturday, apart from that, probably just a couple of little things like a small Ariel, silvertec bulbs at the front, just tidy it up before FCS 11.
 
I ended up paying NWPerformance £80 to get mine put on and camber set up.

If you do it yourself you'll probably fudge up the camber on the front and will end up driving like a dog.

Ahhh right yeah nice one man, I think I will probably end up getting the stealth system aswell. You fit yours yourself ? Niiiiice, put pics up when you've got the coilies on. Yeah, I wanna try and get mine looking sorted so I can maybe get to FCS, thats my target anyway.

Yeah, I fitted it with a friend, very easy to fit, however its not as stealth as they say. There's no room for it to fit any further up, but its still very nice. I'll put some pics up of my exhaust to for you. Yeah I will get some pics of the coilovers and whack them on my progress block this weekend. What you wanting to do for FCS? We should park next to each other :cool:

Ahhh nice one, I will probably end up doing the same. Yeah that's what I was wondering, thinking about maybe getting the recessed one if that doesn't fit completely up behind the bumper like the standard one. Cheers mate :star: Nice one, look forward to seeing it slammed. Although it will just make me want coilovers even more. I want to try get coilovers sorted, exhaust system, RS grille, colour code, new rims. The whole shebang, but I'm not gonna fit anything, (maybe the RS grille) till after my MOT which is end of march. I'm getting impatient already though haha. Yeah definately, doing it for the cherry red haha. :D Not if yours is looking better than mine though.. haha. Like at the moment.

Recessed will sound the same, just depends if you want an exhaust popping out, I just wanted something subtle that sounds nice. It doesn't go right underneath the bumper but to someone who doesn't know it does look standard, plus its cheaper ;)

If you don't have coilovers sorted before FCS and you want your Clio lowered I'll probably be selling my 40mm lowering springs, which give it a nice height, so you can have dibs if you like? But I'll let you know. Ive waited a year for coilovers and just thought what the hell might aswell do it! Patients is a virtue though mate, if you take your time you have more sense of achievement. Its taken me a couple of year to save up for various bits and pieces. Cherry Red crew, lol, don't worry about mine being modified or not, I went to FCS 09 completely standard, lol!

Yeah, I suppose. I don't know which one I'll get yet, one of the two. Depends on monies as well.

Ahhh cheers for that mate :cheers: But I will most likely have coilovers by then, they are high on my list of things. As well as getting the nasty looking dent pulled from my drivers side door, I didn't put it there, the woman that I brought the car from had done it. Haha. did you really ?

No worries, yeah coilovers would be a good mod to start with :) Dents not good, that'd be good, lol! haha yeah, bog standard, riding high!
