Having just got my 172 I do not want to do too much to it but I want to get some small mods, any ideas ? I was thinking of things like clear indicators or those silvervision bulbs ? Any good places to get these from ?
ive got a richbrook black tax holder. look v smart better ythan the large yellow sunwin motors one as standard!! lol
a bit worred that come next year undoing the alan bolts without losng them down the air vents to cause rattles!!
Warm the sticker with a hairdryer. This melts the glue and then you can peel it off. You can buy sticky stuff remover from Halfords if theres any resudue, but de-icer will often do the job just as well.
Hey, why not get a "blow pipe" from Les Smith. Ive seen loads of cool cars with this mod, and itd look great bolted onto the original exhaust to give it that racy look. If you blip the throttle, they make your exhaust note sound like a pig snorting!
Mav mate your just making the job so much harder.
simply warming the sticker, then peeling it off all at once, some times a credit card helps to get the peeling under way. then it peels right off leaving nothing. you of course have to give it a clean, but u dont have to rub off horrible bits of glue. its such a simple job, one of the first things i ever done to my car actually.
why do all u 172 owners get black? the fact you paid so much more than say the dynamquie id want a totally unique car. the cool silver or purple 172s stand out alot more than the black ones. it seems every clio, even bog standard ones are black these days. just an oberservation
I really wanted a black 172 after having a black Clio before and now that I have it I am very happy. All of the 172 colours look stunning mind you and if I was to pick out a colour out of a hat then I would have been happy with whatever colour came out (as long as it was black ! Naaaaaa, just kidding !)
the dynamique blacks are exactly the same paint codes as the 172 black.
also I agree on the sticker front to an extent. BUT the elf sticker is part of Renault and part of the car so I kept it. Keep the car model badges you should be proud of the car not trying to disguse it.
Why remove the visor airbag warnings they are doing a job ditto for the alarm ones.
I travelled an hour to a renault garage to buy 2 cat 1 renault window stickers when I ordered my car cos the standard ones say cat 2 and I had upgraded to cat 1 but the renault garage where I got the car couldnt get the cat1 ones so I got them myself and put them on straight unlike most standard ones which are bent.
