Urgent - FAO: Cup Owners



  S2000


My bro has just picked his Cup u from the garage. The colour coded sidestrip look really dull, almost like there is no laquer on them. Can anyone else confirm that their Cup is the same.
 


yeah, theyve all got a matt finish on them.

dont get polish on it, cos its an absolute b-atch to get off!! in the end i had to splash out on some autoglym exterior trim stuff!!

the car doesnt have the 172 Cup badges on the door pillars does it? I noticed one @ a Renault dealer had the "new" clear side repeaters but no door pillar badges!

teady172 - did your bro get the car from Glenvaragil (sp?) @ the M90 / A92 interchange in Dunfermiline? If so - it was his car that i was talking about earlier -

"the car doesnt have the 172 Cup badges on the door pillars does it? I noticed one @ a Renault dealer had the "new" clear side repeaters but no door pillar badges!"

it was sitting behind their garage on friday and I was having a good look @ it!
 


Personally think the cup 172 badges are better off thank on, why spoil that lovely blue paintwork!

Paul - My Bros cup had mat rubbing strips and so does Brods, or shall I say the one that he use to drive!

Have you got Neil to join the club yet??

I love that rear spoiler!

Paul - Is your windscreen wiper a bit down mate?
 


The garage has my badges on order, not sure if I’ll fit them yet tho. Done 220 miles since 1 p.m just having a little break until i take it to 320:) , how long did everyone else run their 172s/Cups in for? I must admit I’ve weakened a few times and opened it up a bit:D

Alright guys,

All I can say is, cheeeze that thing is quick, every bit as quick as mine if not quicker and it only has 250 miles on the clock!!:eek:

Seems to have less body roll as well when cornering.

Ill try and get some better pic of both of them tomorrow!
