    Cheers guys Click here to enlarge

    Hahaha no it will be staying as it looks now Click here to enlarge nice and clean. Got a mates modding company who's going to put his logo in the quarter windows, but that's it.

    It's pretty mental to drive with your foot down tbh, screams all the way up to 9000rpm. Very strong in VTEC & very quick for what it is! Love it Click here to enlarge

    After seeing the pictures and it in the flesh, you've won me round :lol: actually is really nice. The interior is lovely too and looked in such good nick to be fair considering age etc.

    Mods sound good mate, not subtly lowering and getting rid of balloon tyres? Other than that its a beauty!

    Thanks!

    Nah, won't be touching the suspension tbh. Nothing wrong with it, it's been fine tuned by Honda for 1000's of hours to get it right, it handles like its on rails, the LSD locks in the corners & you're away. Perfectly balanced, next to no roll & it's a comfy ride, much better than my Corsa! Not going to lower it just for looks, I think it looks fine anyway. JDM YO!

    Plus it's low to the ground anyway because its only got 15" alloys lol. Feels like you're sitting on the ground. The tyres are 195/55/15 so only 10mm bigger profile than the 45's on the Corsa's. I'll see what happens when I come to change the tyres, all 4 are brand new ATM. Lowest I'd go is 50 profile, it'd be too low otherwise.

    Won't be changing much from standard, it'll be staying pretty much as Honda intended it to be.

    Fair enough mate didn't know it was that low but being on 15s it must be, and I bet it handles really well too, does look a true minter though.

    Tidy up jobs sound good though mate definitely.

    Yeah it's pretty close, only just clears speedbumps & can't clear curbs, have to watch out with the Mugen lip. Handles immensely, can just chuck it into corners & it goes there.

    Yeah got the ball rolling with the tidy up jobs, wipers & some brackets are done already. HID kit fitted yesterday, moving along nicely.

    Thanks Click here to enlarge yeaaaah nothing exactly mind blowing but don't want to venture too far from standard.

    It's already a rare car so that on its own is enough, plus there's getting to be less & less of them so the more original spec it is; the more it will be worth.

    Haha I know, French cars tend to start falling to bits shortly after they were made.

    Hard to say really, never been in a Clio or raced one for that matter Click here to enlarge

    Only thing I have to show is this really -

    The EK9 may have been modified though... Clio is much heavier, but has more torque... Would be close.

    Thought you'd bite harder than that :lol:

    Doesn't matter who wins when I'd probly have something else break while we're trying it... Hence why I'm selling it Click here to enlarge

    Hahah I'm open to others views & points. I know the Type-R's aren't the fastest thing on the road, that's not why I bought it. They're not built for straight line speed anyway.

    Haha possibly! Wouldn't want to break another drive shaft! What you buying? BMW?
