I really like the way it looks in this one, alloys look good.

Bit of advice aswell, if you want to post photos directly onto the site (embed)
then open them in photobucket, right click copy directly on the photo, then paste them directly into your thread.

Thanks, I'm a bit of a noob at this but thanks for the help :)
Hope it looks better when the rims are sprayed etc.. etc..

Personally I think they look great the way they are, but it's your car so fair enough.

What colour are you painting the wheels?
 
  Dynamique 1.2 16v
well im torn between getting them done in grey, Or just be ridiculous and get them done cream with a brown centre cap...

But then again i could just get them polished and leave them at that

Not sure about cream and brown but grey would look alright, i'd just get them polished up tbh.

Maybe some clear side repeaters and a 1*2 grill?
 
  Dynamique 1.2 16v
yeah the clear indicators are on their way and just got to see what looks best, trail and error i guess..:race:

There's no error about it mate your car looks good,
so many people try and overdo 1.2s because they try and overcompensate for the small engine,
less is more imo, yours looks spot on. :approve:
 
  Dynamique 1.2 16v
Thanks pal much appreciated, all i really need now is to lower the back a tad and then a smaller plate on the front then im pretty much done, then it'll be time for some engine interior mods :)

I hope you mean engine dressing,
because if you try and chase performance in a 1.2 you'll spend alot of money and not really get anywhere. :dapprove:
 
  Dynamique 1.2 16v
nononon not performance f**k that haha, i tried that with a 1.0 not good haha
Just clean the bay up, get it re-sprayed under there and just tidy the wires up, paint the block etc etc..

Good man, sounds like you're modding your 1.2 the right way. :approve:

The colour really makes it stand out from the rest aswell.

How much have you lowered the car and what size are your alloys? I have the same clio and it's lowered 60mm on standard 14" alloys. There's still a gap at the arch not much though! I was thinking of getting 172 alloys 16" with low profile tyres. Your car looks really tidy though. It's what av been aiming for lol
