    Hi,

    I'm Adam from Newark, Notts, and at the weekend I picked up my 1st Clio 197, Ive had a 182 before, and the time was right to purchase this clean standard example,

    1344F1BD-1493-41E3-B75D-42084ADFF1CB_zpsoffrdkyb.jpg

    Few plans for it, swap the headlights for the black ones with the projectors, Wheel refurb (probably leave the wheels silver) H&R/Eibach spring kit, maybe change the exhaust and a panel filter, and just enjoy it really,

    So yeah, Hi.

    Welcome. Looks lovely.

    Like the fact that the words “standard example” were followed by a list of upgrades. You’ll fit in well here.

    How do you find it next to your 182?

    I’d go bronze or gold on the wheels! :smiley:

    Bronze is a good shout, id not even considered that to be honest, The 182 was about 6 years ago, and that wasn't 'Standard'

    9F76AF36-35B4-4045-8B35-64359C91A40F_zpsb7q0mbjl.jpg

    But I haven't shut up about it since ownership,

    so far im loving the 197, Coming from a Mk2 Golf, lets just say, it feels very refined,

    "Very refined"!!! Not something you hear very often around here! :smiley:

    182 looks a fun one mate but glad you're enjoying the 197.

    As for the wheels, if it was me, I'd go gold. Think it always looks so cool on a black car.

    @Jordanfaf on here has had his wheels done in gold and I think it's a winner. Some photos here
