    Bike in rear of clio

    @Jake to be honest mate , you would be more likely to get rear ended and your bike and car written off at the same time in sydney in direct comparison to the chance of your scenario happening 😂 😂 😂

    @Jake , don't the new MK4 Clio's have a roof rack holders? , my MK3 has special things on the roof that raise up and you can use that i am sure to put a roof rack of some sort on it. never tried and i have no idea the official name for what i am referring to but happy to take pic's. if its the case with the MK4 like my MK3 just put it on the roof?

    lol obviously jezz , if it were a manual then you would be next in line to grab a Clio IV as would i but for Alex he already settled on it knowing it was an auto so ha! also with turbo's you can add other interesting mods to make it sound even better (wastegate / bov etc) that you can't do on a NA car cars are heavily for the sound not just for the feel , and if you don't agree with me then go buy yourself an electric car and hop off the forums @Jezz

    clio rs200 sport mk4

    @alex91 its got a turbo in it , the level of fun factor increases the more boost you use and the bigger balls you have. If the akrapovic exhaust with the pops and burbles don't get you to buy it , then nothing will as you can't determine the cars potential just by taking it for a quick drive around the block from the dealership.
  5. Yeah , buy @63x1092's Clio 2 , they are amazing , and his is black!!! (wink wink)
  6. Get yourself a brake bleed kit as well as a Piston Pusher And do a brake fluid change while you are at it its easy to do and you wont need 2 people , personally recommend Motul RBF600 for street and light track day use , grab 2 bottles. you will notice a huge difference in braking , alot more responsive , spend some time on Youtube and if still uneasy get a mate to come around. for under $100 + pads and some of your time the safety and stopping distance gained is well worth the trouble , also handy tools to have to help family and friends with their cars also. Never heard of Maxxtrek either , probably some cheap dealer/mechanic tyres bought at bulk, With tyres i personally stick with Bridgestone but have heard great things about Conti Sport Contact 5 from Continental which are all season tyres , depending on your wallet first and foremost i would just stick with summer tyres due to the power output of the car but if mileage is a concern try to find sport-touring tyres , they are a mix between regular sports and touring so they offer a good amount of grip without sacrificing tread wear too much when planting it , they also do OK in the wet (bridgestone t001's as an example). tyres ultimately come down to personal preference though , i will never understand the type of person who complains about tyre noise but then again i never hear them over my exhaust noise even with the windows up anyway :)
  7. @Schwiftysport24 those are definitely non projector , halogen housings. You would be safe with those bulbs i linked provided you buy the H7 (but please double check your manual or local supercheap auto/autobarn/repco to be 100% sure) I suggest you buy 1 set , see how you like them then go for a second. it will be easier to install with the fan variety as i would not put it past the french to make it incredibly difficult to install bulbs on the megane as well. The fans offer the highest power output/brightness compared to the heatsink , but as aforementioned just make sure you angle them properly. when you get them , with your highbeams make sure the LED's are facing UP and DOWN , with your lowbeams i would suggest the same but depending on the output you may be ok with side to side as the beam looks like it will get cut off at a certain angle anyway. Once you go down some dark streets and you flip on the highbeams with those NightEyes you won't ever go back to a standard bulb ever again , just remember doesn't matter what highbeams you have you will still blind oncoming traffic adjacent to you so common courtesy applies (i.e don't drive around with your Hi Beams on all the time) They arn't difficult to install you could certainly do it yourself but just make sure you have a firm grip so you don't drop it in the undertray (i have done it before ...it is not fun)
  8. Welcome @Schwiftysport24 , powerbulbs is telling me you have H7 as your lowbeam and highbeam , based on photo's ive seen from the front of your car if i have the right model , one is a projector housing (will look abit like a magnifying lens) and the other is halogen. On my Clio my lowbeams are projector and highbeams halogen so i am going to assume it is the same just for the time being , if you can take a photo of your front i can tell you exactly. For projector beams if you want a decent set of lights you will need to invest in a HID (high intensity discharge) kit at 4700k-5000k max , otherwise just run any reputable brand bulb if your not bothered. However with the highbeams i strongly recommend buying LED and i highly recommend these , they come with a ABS plastic skirt that is moveable so you should be able to get the right angle , they are only 36w per bulb so they use less power then a conventional bulb and when aimed correctly to the design of your headlights they are super..super bright , you won't want to go back to any conventional bulb after that and if you do it correctly you won't blind oncoming traffic unless your car is on highbeams and they are adjacent to you within a small distance at night (which your highbeams should be off anyway). In terms of beam length they fall abit short of a conventional bulb , but in terms of clarity in a 160-190* angle in front of you especially if you like going for night drives around corners fast nothing on the market compares , unless you wanna spend money on another HID kit but even then they don't last as long and 9 times out of 10 they will burn your headlight housing if you get anything over 55w generally as the heat they generate is substantial without any proper cooling , compare the Nighteye and any HID kit for example , the nighteyes have either a fan or a heatsink and the HID kits have nothing. In terms of brake pads id snap up a set from Sparesbox as they have a sale at the moment that most stores won't be able to match , these are what you want to be using , especially if you have OEM brembos brake calipers (which i assume you do). Important note: don't put LEDs in any projector housing , you will have beam scatter and it will be an absolute nightmare and you will have fuck all visibility. i speak from experience.
  9. Welcome , you won't have to wash it as much as i wash mine (black) haha. good thing about white is it still looks clean even if its dirty.
  10. @Haakon wow , thanks for the knowledge. its really awesome to know , well i stand corrected and i feel abit more confident in the reliability of my car now :) , helpful to know the new MK4 RS is the joint venture between Nissan and Renault.
  11. @Deb @Moosey where can i get one of these stickers , located in SYD.
  12. True , Ok then hahahahaha 🤣🤣🤣 @DOOOOK @mojo damn man! your my hero , definitely owe you one Mojo.
  13. i did , trying to convince the girlfriend to get one for her next car as her parents are buying another house soon and they need another car , went to the dealership and thats when i fell in love with the akra exhaust and the fancy electronic popping, i do want one but i need the constant mental stimulation from driving manual otherwise i get bored and fall asleep driving regular automatic. had around 12 cars in my life and around 10 motorcycles so far and all have been manual. only auto i drive from time to time is my mums car to fill up fuel and service it. @Deet
  14. @Apu you are partially correct , but i think the clio still has the edge. with the clio you predominately hang around 3k rpm in any given gear normal driving and power gets going around 4000 to 5500rpm but the torque is there from 3000 with the fn2 its slightly similar , off memory its 3500 for the fn2 normal driving but then its 5200-5400rpm for the crossover between 3k-5200 rpm on the fn2 there is practically no torque the car behaves like a turbo... lags then kicks in between 3k-5000 rpm the clio has alot more torque and is actually going by that point , i do notice after 5000rpm's or so on the clio even though my speed is increasing it feels like it flatspots whereas in the FN2 it just keeps pulling. Real world actual speeds might be similar hence what you said about the VTEC-like hole Really keen to go up against an FN2 sometime and see how it compares real world , obviously driver skill and reaction also plays a big part , i will always love my Honda's but i feel the Clio is just in a different tier. Would be awesome to come do a track day with you , its actually nice to know someone who delves in both cars and enjoys them for what they are.
