Passed the TEST!

  Clio sport 182
Well I past my Test 2nd time with 2 Minors finally... I have a 1.2 8V clio its very sluggish but its all that I can affored on insurance atm. I'm a Mechanic for An Aston Martin garage so I'm hoping to get to know you all and help about in the Technical department..

Anyway I know that I don't fit in with the SPORT part of the forum but hopfully someone can give me some Ideas what I could do to smarten it up..

It's currently on Black Steelies at Stock condition with 51,000 on the clock. So ideas would be much appriciated not to much botherd on Performance as its only a 1.2 8V.

2 minors ? I passed mine with like 13 minors (1 less than a fail) week and a half crash course ftw. Well done.

Welcome buddy!

Best things for the 1.2's are body colouring, sport wheels and cheapy coilovers....

Low'n'slow ftw!

Ps. First time 4 minors :) one of which was for taking racing lines down a country lane. (all on the right side of the road obviously) :cool:

Welcome to the club.

I wouldn't bother with much on the car for now. Just stick with it and upgrade in a year or two.

Leave it standard and save up money to buy a better car once you have some NCB and driving experience
