    I have a Renault Clio 1.2 16v MkII 51 plate...
    Currently I have upgraded the sound in my car which is pretty sick and i now want to start on the appearance. The car is completely stock apart from the sound!
    I am planning on getting new alloys, HID lights and tinting the windows. Just the generic 'pimping'.
    But I will need quite a lot of help on the way!

    Doesnt everyone just get conversion kits when they buy HIDs?
    How would you recommend i go about this then?

    Aftermarket HIDs are illegal in the UK.

    yup and thats the problem people go ohh my lights are poor so i will buy Hids.
    the reflectors in halogen lights are designed for halogen bulbs. the Hids give a different pattern. it DOES NOT matter if you have projectors as they are still designed for halogen bulbs. the only correct HID bulb is the D2 design

    MA is slightly wrong they are legal but they need to be self levelling (not the manual switch on the dash), have headlight washers and be in the correct enclosure.

    as i said have alook and see if any clios came with HIDs as standard and get them. then you will need to get a self levelling motors and sensors, headlight washers.

    or just buy decent bulbs. im currently using nightbreakers and find them to be very good compared to what was fitted as standard (Hdi will back me up on this that the VW H4 bulbs are crap )
    im also wanting to convert to Hids however so few ever came from the factory im looking at around £500 for the parts, 2nd hand. if i was to walk into VW id be looking at around £1500

    Hi,

    Just bought a clio 1.2 last week for my first car, pretty much box standard except the radio in it.

    Haven't got insurance yet and I'm already looking at modding forums, haha.

    Hello and welcome to the nuthouse mate ;)

    while your looking at insurance add some mods to the policy and see what they are like before you actually do them to the car and find that they add a whack to your insurance

    Yes thanks.

    I don't plan on modding it just yet aside from maybe debadging and 1 whiper.

    This car will be for me to play with when my insurance goes down and I can afford something bigger and better. :)

    Hey Guys

    I drive a Clio 197. Current mods are a full decat freeflow exhaust and a RS Tuning Remap. Still want to do some more engine mods, just unfortunate that renault went all out to prevent the 197 to be turbocharged or supercharged :(. Really a very sad story indeed. only things lined up now is cosmetic changes.

    Hi guys,

    I'm new here and been thinking of tinkering performance wise with my clio. She is good as it is, but lacking in the lower rev ranges? Any ideas?? I have been looking at forced induction but I haven't seen anything for a clio 3 sport? Not even sure if it is possible?

    I think most go down the supercharger route with Clio's.
    Have a browse here.

    Hey guys! :)
    I registered a few days ago. Did an introduction of myself in the general chat, but also wanted to do it here, since I drive a Clio. It's a 2003 1.6 16V, so nothing really fancy. I'm also no tuner, racer or modder of any kind, and I have zero knowledge about cars, but maybe I want to do some minor upgrades in the future :)
    See you guys around!
