    Hi all, I have a 2007 Clio 197 that has just been wrote off because someone drove into the back of me, only damage is a broken bumper and diffuser.
    I am picking it up Wednesday and putting it back on the road, so whilst I’m at it might as well do some upgrading .
    Looking forward to joining in with the forums.

    Hi, looking at initially doing decat and exhaust, and air intake.
    Would look into a remap but don’t want to go too far as it’s my everyday driver

    Welcome.

    If you're doing Exhaust and Intake, you definitely want it mapped...the flat spot can be horrific.

    Welcome in mate. Seems a bit extreme to be written off with such light damage.

    They quoted £2500 to replace bumper, diffuser and exhaust, insurance deemed it uneconomical to repair and so classed it as a write off under the new category N

    So what happens now? Insurance pay out then you buy car back?

    Pretty much, need to get a second hand bumper and diffuser, went to look on the for sale forum on here but it’s not letting me on for some reason

    Welcome to the forum! Good luck with the project!

    As above, you can upgrade your membership from £5/year in order to view the Classifieds section, and also the Clio RS bible that is the How To section :smile:
