    Hi all,

    In a couple of weeks time will be picking up a 57 plate 197

    Looking to do a few minor bits and get it ready as a cheap track toy :smile:

    Thanks for the welcome guys!

    My daily is currently an e92 335i with approx 390bhp. Although nice and quick, its not the sort of car to throw around!

    Signed up as a paid member and found some useful info in the how to section!

    Will update all being well once I've picked it up!

    Cheers :smile:

    Welcome Jim.

    In the absence of Clio photos, (good choice by the way, it should do exactly what you can't with the BMW) can we get some 335i pics please? Is that going to stay as a daily? Nice support vehicle to have!

    Cheers!! Yeah black with red leather!

    Sat on h&r springs. I assume these are just as suitable for the 197?

    Quite a big sport spec from standard. Nearly FBO mod wise:
    Twin air filter
    Twin dump valve
    Ally charge pipe
    FMIC
    JB4 ecu

    Lots more non performance too!

    You'll find the springs a bit harsher on the Clio I think!

    Nice spec on the 335 :thumb: Would love a nice cruiser BMW with a bit of poke. Toyed with having one for a while early last year.

    Yeah it's a lovely motor! Running costs are high; as are the repairs/parts but hey. Only live once right?

    I have a BMW mate. Just done full new brakes overhaul. Yep, fully up to speed with the running costs! :smiley:
