My Clio 197



Since the time came to part with my Ph2 172 after 5 years and 100k miles, I bought this little "toy" a couple of weeks ago...

It's a Clio 197 Lux. The standard specification is listed here...

http://www.renaultsport.co.uk/roadcars/clio197/specification/Default.aspx

The car came with the following manufacturers' options...

- Cup Chassis with 17" anthracite alloy wheels and red painted brake callipers
- Double Distance Xenon Headlamps & Headlamp Wash (includes fixed cornering lights)
- Fixed cornering lights
- Metallic Paint
- Renaultsport Recaro Seats
- Body coloured electrically adjustable and heated folding door mirrors
- Extra tinted rear windows and tailgate
- Air conditioning
- 4X15W Radio CD with integrated MP3 player, Fingertip Remote Controls with 6 speakers

The car also came with 4no. brand new Hankook Ventus V12 Evo tyres :)

At present, the car is fine as it is so no changes are planned in the immediate future.

Will be interesting to see how it handles on track :)

awesome spec! got any more pics of the mp3 connection?

It's just a small box with three connections within the glove compartment.

And a couple of WOW modifications... silvatec indicator bulbs to the front and rear and extreme white sidelight bulbs :)

Very nice car mate. Exactly the same spec as my 197. I really do love red and the anthracite wheels set it off nicely.
 
aah, the tunepoint?

Yeh that's the one :) It's good but for some reason, the eejits at Renault have put some kind of block on it so when you connect it to the iPhone, it doesn't flick through the tracks properly (when using the stalk controls). The track isn't displayed on the phone either. Oh well. Sh*t happens.

Thanks mate. Ahhh same spec. Good stuff :) Just need to look at getting some of the drivers side seat trimmed as it's wearing off on the side. A common issue on them I think.

The upper front grille had seen better days so it needed to be replaced :)

Damo!

Very nice mate, can't believe you had the silver one 5 years!

197 looks lovely, how many miles are on it?
 
*outward rolled right?

Indeed :)

Hellooo stranger :) Thanks mate. Yeh... a long but good old five years :) This is an '08 plate, but with 80k miles. However, every 12k miles, it has been to Renault and has NEVER been anywhere else. And with the optional extras, it was a steal :)
 
A very cheap, but effective modification :) I would NEVER normally put something like that on my car, but these were a must. Just simply slipped on and with a little force they're not coming off :)

Thats a joke yeah?! number plate kinda gives it away ;)

Well done for paying attention!
I don't want to flood his thread with pictures if its not him driving as its just changed owners, but thanks for you input it was was really useful.
 
If you don't mind me asking how much did the car se you back as I'm looking to buy one

Between £6k and £7k.

That looks weird. Especially with the black line at the bottom lol. Why not just c4 the vinyl?

I'll see how I get on. I can have some vinyl/film applied to it but it looks cleaner imo :)

Was this you on the track at Castle Combe Action Day?

As now established, that was Byron, the previous owner.

what tips are they? want some :D
Any close up pics?

These are them...
