    Hi Gilly 113 and welcome to TorqueCars nice to have you along. What are you aiming at - silly power, sensible power or better handling? The other question is how much are you prepared to spend?

    Hi there! Im james and i drive a Clio 2 Mk1 1.2 mpi. Obviously the power gains arent really in my sights for this car as without an engine conversion its an impossible task. Although im looking at changing to an Audi A3 1.8T quattro next march which will be a different story. Iv always been very interested in renaults and am currently an active member in the largest renault enthusiast website there is. Although im looking to leave the renault communtiy when i get the audi i'll still be involved in certain shows such as French Car Show and Renault World Series as im sure Renault will still hold a certain sentiment to me... but il be back the second i can afford to insure and run a Clio V6!

    Iv got a clio with 17's on that iv lowered 35mm all round and it doesnt rub... all iv had 2 do is pull the plastic arch lining back a tiny bit and its sound now. My tyres are 205/40/R17s and theyr fine. Cant see how 16s can rub when you can fit 18s with standard suspension...

    Hi JG1 and thanks for the tips - much appreciated. You will not be dissapointed with the A3 1.8T Quattro (not that i'm biased or anything! ;))

    I think the best option might be to get some 205s and small spacers.... although mines got 205s and i havnt bothered with spacers and it sits at quite a good stance lowered 35mm on 17s anyway. If you need anymore help with your clio drop me a message or summit cuz iv changed quite a few bits on mine myself and might be able 2 help! :)

    Hi Wayne,

    Thanks for the reply, i don't have a set amount to spend at the mo, but this is due to not nowing which way to turn first. I've been advised that i should'nt mod my car at all as this version can't take any major modifications???? :confused: I will be keeping this car for the next couple of years so will be a on going project!

    Many thanks G

    Hey and welcome to torquecars mate.
    give celtic tuning a shout
    they dont list the gains but other members have used them and very satisfied.
    i would think you should be looking at around 80bhp after a remap (chippings the od fashioned way, most is now done through the diagnostic port ) but itll be the increase in torque that you will notice the most

    Hi
    Clio Mk2 Phase 2, 1.2 16v.

    Mods:
    Rip speed mushroom filter (attached to air box)
    Piper cross Cold air feed kit
    Ecotek CB-26P valve + piper cross filter
    Nitro-X programmable ECU mod chip
    Uprated fast road clutch
    All LED or xenon bulbs

    Had no real problems apart from wearing the clutch out although all expected other time really. Suspensions on the way out, wondered if anyone had any good recommendations for road suspension, maybe something slightly uprated, possibly lowered slightly to solely reduce car roll?? Also having a fair few problems with wheel spin, the tires width and grip just arn't up for the car, and in the wet the car can act like its on ice, so any advice on size increase on tires, or as to a product anyone recommends, probably will be buying some basic rims or Renault rims within few months?? Also anyone had any experiences with electric turbos, iv got some "air blowers" from a marine application which are tempting me to see any advantages in performance, doubt full to any at all, and so wondered of any experiences???
    Thanks
