    He only works on steering wheels part time Antti. Might be why feedback takes so long

    Small update for steering wheel. New steering wheel ordered from Jack.
    It is like original wheel but much better materials.
    Cannot wait for it. It takes 1-2 weeks to make, and one week for shipping.

    When i am waiting for wheel, i have one rattle to solve:

    I can also vouch for Jack's work. It's worth the wait!

    I went with full grey alcantara as the car isn't daily driven (and I think it looks horny)

    - Get left rear panel re-sprayed
    - Fresh paint for wheels + new tyres
    - Rear side window seal replacement
    - Front bumper + side skirt polishing
    - Replace left door limiter/hinge
    - Replace 2 springs + 2 shocks in front. (genuine parts)
    - Interior wash with kärcher wet vacuum cleaner machine.

    It's unusual to see a photo of your car that isn't in the snow Antti :smile: is that it for your winter now? Good weather all the way??

    No snow any more, but not so warm. This morning was -2 celsius again. Mornings are still cold. It rains snow or water depends on day. :sweat:
    Summer is delayed or cancelled here..

    Wheels ready.
    I will wait some weeks for paint drying completely. Colour is oem silver.
    Time will tell how long lasting finish this is. Powdercoat would be much better, but companys we have in my country cannot provide original colours, just colours from ral-chart.

    I just got back from Germany. This was my 32 time there. Roads in Bayern are so perfect! Just normal driving almost 200kmh in autobahn. :



    And it was not so bad in Italy..?



    Italy small roads..



    I got new steering wheel from royalsteeringwheels couple of days ago. I am impressed with quality.
    Now i am just hoping my old wheel will find correct address for exhange refund.

    Are those heated seats? What's the little button down by your left leg?

    Yep, heated seats are really important option here. Winter time is so cold.

    I dont know about UK option which was available, here it was standard. We only had 10 examples of clio 197 officially imported for Finland. What i have saw in Germany and UK seat heaters are quite rare option. I cannot imagine leather seats without heaters..
