Dacia Tuning Guide

Improve your Dacias’ performance

Dacia car tuning tips and advice. The Dacia appeared in TopGear as a cheap low end budget brand, but has gone on to become quite popular, especially with young drivers.

We’ve seen second generation cars out now, which have greatly improved on the original and are true to the Renault underpinnings.

We have a wide range of tuning articles covering all mod types for Dacia’s aiming to correct some of the criticisms levelled at the original factory design. Please join the forum for model specific questions and answers and to meet other owners and see what modifications they have done.

We are currently one of the fastest growing car tuning clubs around covering the Dacia range and are certainly one of the friendliest.

Read our latest and frequently updated Dacia tuning features. We strongly recommend that you join our Dacia forums where you can swap engine tuning ideas with like minded Dacia owners in our various technical forums.

We love to hear what our readers have done to their Dacias, so drop into the forum, post up a new thread or pass on your tips, we love to see members car pictures and have an ever growing gallery. Scroll down the page to see our latest tuning articles for your Dacia.
