Hi guys!

Since last weekend in Yyteri was so great, I decided that I just have to join your forum!

My car is a 2006 Renault Clio Sport 197. I bought it completely stock about a year ago. It has a 2.0 16V 145kw engine which moves it quite nicely.

To start with, here are a few pictures of it stock:

I drove it like this through the winter and in spring the fun started. First came the wheels:

2-piece Carline CM8 / Dynatech Arven, 18x8 et45 in the front and 18x8.5 et39 in the rear. I was actually really really happy when I found these in Estonia, because the PCD for the Clio is 5x108 and it was a pain in the ass to find wheels that would fit. Also, you can't actually find many of these wheels around. Why didn't I just get some other wheels and use adapters? It's because of the original offset. Original 17x7.5 wheels have offset 68. Now, current front wheel has offset 45 and 8mm spacers (so et37) and I have about 1,5-2cm of poke. In the rear the offset is 39 and no spacers. So if I wanted to run adapters, the offset for the new wheel should be something like et60 or so and it's not too easy to find a good looking wheel with such a high offset. Since wheels weren't in very good condition, I refurbished them myself.

Next came the coilovers:

My weapon of choice was Spax RSX coilovers. There aren't many different sets of coilovers available for Clio Sport and ones from the regular Clio won't fit, but I'm really happy with mine. One of the reasons why I picked these over KW V1s, was that the stiffness can be adjusted and these go about 2cm lower than the KW ones. At the moment, I could go like 2cm lower in the front, but rears are maxed out and actually I even removed the adjustment parts (don't know how you say this in english) to get it lower.

I realised that I hadn't taken any proper photos of my ride in current setup, so during the Big Meet I went took some quick ones. This is how it looks like now:

Kapsu: Renault Clio 197 Nps-056
Kapsu: Renault Clio 197 Nps-057
Kapsu: Renault Clio 197 Nps-061
Kapsu: Renault Clio 197 Nps-062
Kapsu: Renault Clio 197 Nps-067

So what's coming in the future? There's actually loads to do. I'm probably going to get the whole car painted since there are so many scratches. If I get current ones sold over the winter, I'm probably going to have new wheels next season. The front of the car needs to look lower, so a new front splitter is coming. The interior is wrapped in 3M carbon at the moment, but I'm probably going for something more interesting soon. And so on...

I also wanted to add that Big Thanks for having us at the Big Meet. It surely was the best event of my summer!

Rauma auto, hölökyn kölökyn
See you next time!

Got to love the different platform, which you rarely seem to find these days.

Thumbs up for taking this project further aswell, as i could drive it like that and be satisfied with it. Razz

I'm looking forward to seeing the new wheels under this. I'm not really the biggest fan of the current ones. Otherwise the car looks very nice and has a lot of potential! How about removing the rear window-wiper and tinting the front windows? Wink

Keep us updated. ❤

Yeah, it has been a while. :DBut since winter is coming to an end and new season is about to begin, I decided to give you an update.

Decided to refub my wheels and make them stand out a bit more, so I ordered some new bolts for the lip and going to paint them another color (yes, color, not just grey).

Also a few months ago I ordered a front lip since originally the front was quite high and it didn't look too good. Lip was meant for a facelift Clio Sport, so it needs a bit of work to make it fit perfectly.

Also did a small photoshop of how it will (hopefully) look when done.

To get better stance next year, I'm selling my 205/40/18 and 215/40/18 and go for 215/35/18 instead. This will give me more stretch at the rear, so I can probably fit few mm of spacers too and the whole car should be 20-30 mm lower this year. Oh and stiffer springs are coming for the rear to get rid of that horrible rubbing. Very Happy

This topic has been moved. There's no longer a discrete section for international projects. We wanted to get all build/showroom topics into the same place to make this forum little more international.

That's a good looking car. I'm not a fan of those wheels, but still it looks very very nice. One of my favorites at Jämijärvi. Smile

Thats well said. I would go with silver centers on these wheels (or paint those lips to match centers). Anyway that's a nice ride and hope we see you in person next summer too. Wink
