  AUDI A5 s-sline
thought id put a little project thread together,
its a clio 1.2 16v,


i started off buying my first clio and my first car in august 2009.

the next thing was to buy some alloys, when buying these, i wasnt joined up to here, so excuse the 17's ;)

it was then the big question,

172 or 182 rear bumper

i decided on a 182 bumper as i love the twin exhaust,

then got hold of an exhaust from ebay,

basically it was a standard backbox the a sh*tty pipe welded on that stuck out around 5 - 6 inch! lasted a week

time for a change! :)

i went for the K-tec 182 style full stainless cat-back

once i aligned it better and it was run in a little

i also painted my front and rear badges green and my bullets green with black lettering.

then lowered it 40mm on spax springs

it has since settled and has lowered a little more:)

i then found a full 182 interior and decided to change the rubish 'extreme' interior:

it then stayed as it was for a few months doing lilttle things each week,

silvertechs front and rear,
smoked side repeaters,
led side lights,
smaller arial,
painted drums and calipers black and cleaned my alloys properly

1*2 front bumper
1*2 wings and skirts
cup spoiler

IMG_0139.jpg


got them to a body shop and all sprayed up,

i then waited for the weekend to come to fit them, the same weekend all the snow came!!:eek::evil:

friday: got the cup spoiler on, n roved bumper and swapped one wing over,
IMG_0145.jpg


friday night - all tucked up ready for sat morning,
IMG_0146.jpg


woke up saturday morning, and the snow came, all day
IMG_0148.jpg


got their eventually with lots or coffee and biscuits

my fingers were too numb to do the skirts so they had to wait turns out it wasnt until 2 wekks later, we had around a foot of snow and it got so annoying,

then;

i like this, i was going to paint my badges green but i only had orange paint in the garage so orange it was, i like the green wheel nuts and the clio badge is a pretty nice.

Looks superb 10/10 for effort :D

As above the colour combo works quite well, all it needs now is coilovers.

As soon as you fit spacers, that will look perfect!

Well done, you've made a real nice job of that.

Ye mate really nice exhaust, sounds great aswel! :). The alignment with the cut outs in the bumper can b a pain but once you have it set up it's great! :)

Love the black and Green looks awesome, what are the dimensions of your front plate, I want to buy one that sits flush in the recess, just not sure on the size.
 
abit of a touchy subject but if you were to put a price on it how much did all this cost fella??? this is what i wonna do with mine,,,,,, looks awesome
 
  AUDI A5 s-sline
How exactly do you adjust the alignment?!?! lol Like i said before though... reallllly like the car haha!

fiddling around with the exhaust hangers, and when clamping it together, makinbg sure it is square, sounds daft but the little things helped :)

Does anyone know how I can lock the front brakes while my wheel is off, so I can get a good nip on my spacers? :). Cheers :)
 
Don't worry! Just check them in a day or two & re-tighten. The bolts aren't the best, and it's better to be safe than sorry.
If you hear any rumbling sort of noises coming from the front - they'll need tightening. Quick!


& I just asked my mum to press the brake pedal :) lol.
