    And I'm Back...

    Picking the car up tomorrow after work! Found out I've got #0366

    And I'm Back...

    I sold the 197 back in Feb, and haven't actually had a car for the last 6 months. The push bike has been great, but has it's limitations. I'm still waiting on delivery (And subsequently the build number), but I should be taking delivery of my new pearl white 275 Trophy in the coming week! I always thought I'd be back in a RS one day, but didn't realise it would be so soon!

    Melb - New Clio 197

    LOL... It's not an unmarked police car. I was actually rather surprised with how little police presence I saw. Only marked car I saw was around the 12 Apostles, and that was to tell people not to park infront of the vistor centre.

    Could I please have a mod move this thread to the "Build Threads" section, Thanks. I had my first decent drive in the Clio on the weekend, and this can basically sum it up in two pictures

    Melb - New Clio 197

    Wow, people are still replying! Well first mods were done to the car, a set of RE002's. I took a corner that I know fairly well last night, with the old tyres I had to slow down a bit, as I was scared of understeer (They were some 2nd hand Falkens to pass RWC when I bought the car). The new RE002, slowed down just as much, threw it into the corner, came out the other side going just as quick, and it didn't even feel like the car made an effort! So much more confident on these new tyres, and they've just changed the entire car! I had a massive grin on my face after that... I just hope the mod bug doesn't start again! Factory options for the 197. I'm the 2nd owner, and the first owner said that he just ticked every box when he ordered the car, so had to wait a further 4 months for it. Apparently there are about 5 in Aus with the Xenons and Sunroof. But they really do set the car apart from other 197's (Not that there are many on the road). But I was looking for about 3 months for one with Xenon's. I actually almost bought a Mk2 Phase 2 Megane RS225 because I couldn't find a Clio I liked! Damn straight! I know right!! I do miss the car as the K24 was just stupid quick, but after owning it for 6 years, I think it was time to move on... to smaller and slower things But the Clio is great! THe guy that bought the Integra off me has actually been keeping in touch, and giving me updates and stuff, which is nice. It's good to see he is taking care of it, and actually tracking it. Since I've moved to Melbourne I've actually started hanging out with a couple of the ClubITR guys. One of them is building a K24/20 for his DC5R, so I'm helping with pulling the engine apart and putting it back together. Actually a really fun process.

    That's perfect height! I'll have a look for your build thread too see the size of your rims! I'm guessing the 197 & 200 run the same guards.

    Sik post brah, I'll be sure to read more of them! Once I sell a few more parts that I have lying around from my Integra, I'll look into getting the springs, but it's something I really feel the car needs. I can't believe how high it sits when compared to most other cars!

    Well aware... & they look like they would fill out the guards on the Clio too! They're also in Melbourne!

    Thanks guys, AeroD, I've found a sit in the UK that do basically everything in CF, so I have to keep away from that site. But "IF" I get rims, I was actually thinking white, but with the black headlights, the black might be a better choice. But lowering it a tad is one thing I really want to do. Love the car, but it just sits a bit too high - As you can see from the pictures of my old Integra, I like the lowered look.

    Nemz: Thanks, was very proud of the DC5, and didn't want to do any of the "ricer" mods. But I never got to race it, just the one Gym-khana. Walkie: No, never been to Tassie, so part of the reason I really want to go. I live 10 min away from the boat, so a good excuse I guess Busgo: I'll look into that, always been a fan of big drives! Well, I picked up the car today, and couldn't be happier. The previous owner has been fantastic! This was his second Clio (First being a Gen 2), so I knew he had looked after it. After driving it around today, I'm loving it. Hopefully I can get away with not wanting to change anything for the next few months/year. Once things I'm thinking of doing are the RenaultSport Front lip, Lowered springs (Heard good things about H&R Springs - The race/sport ones) and some different rims, for looks, and to fill out the pumped guards a bit more. Here is a pic of it from today:
  12. Hi all, I’m new to the forum and the Renault scene all together. My name is Robi, recent immigrant to Melbourne (Originally from Brisbane) and have owned a few "Hot Hatches", with this being my 3rd (Also my 3rd car). My 1st car was a Seat Ibiza GTI. Nothing special, typical 1st car, owned it for 2 years, and then moved on. 2nd car was a 2002 Honda Integra Type R - DC5. I loved this car, and owned it for 6 years. The only sold it due to my move down to Melbourne. The car was heavily modified, and after talking to a few guys I knew through the Honda scene that lived down here, they said it would stick out like a sore thumb. So, I made the hard decision, and sold the car to someone in Brisbane, who has been keeping me updated about it, which I thought, was nice. A few things that I had done to it where Ohlins Coilovers, Rays TE37's in 17x9 +22 (Which is VERY aggressive on a DC5), and a 168FWKW K24 engine conversion (2.4L from an Accord Euro, with a few extra bits on it). I was really proud of that car, as I had a hand in almost everything that was done to it, which included the engine transplant, and all the little things I did to. Here are some pictures of it, was a great car. Anyway, for the past 9 months, I have been "car-less" (Well, I have been driving my girlfriends Auto Mazda 3... WOO), but I've been on the hunt for a new car. I've always liked the look of the Gen 3 Clio, so when they were in the higher part of my budget (Ohh... I'm a full time student by the way), I kept an eye on them. I also looked at Renault Megane RS 225's, and after driving one, I thought the car was brilliant... bar the seating position, which was too high (I'm 187cm tall). The Clio I've bought was on carsales for a total of 24 hours before I actually test drove it, and bought it. Unlike the Integra, I have no real plans for the Clio, other then a factory front lip, and to enjoy it, and I plan PLENTY of trips around Victoria (And Tasmania) in it, which I'm thinking of keep a car/travel blog. I'll post up some more pictures and info once I pick up the car this weekend, but I hope to meet the Melbourne group at the next meet. Thanks Robi
