No mods yet, but its a 2001 dark mett' blue with cream Recaro leather, the multi function steering wheel, cruise, winter pack and 6cd indash changer, a rear spoiler and I think it has a bigger front splitter? Planning to get a set of 18's asap.

Nice looking 4motion, with the Votex front spoiler also, only need the side skirts and colour code the rear valance, drop the ride on some nice 18/19's (preferably not Audi A8's[;)]) and your sorted.

Your clio sport looks on point BTW, I was very tempted to get one, but prefer German build quality.[8D]

Yeah she will be missed, that car used to fly mate, they are very underestimated (as alot of more powerful cars found out) but when you do a alot of motorway driving then you need a more comfy ride, plus the clio was a pain in da backside in the wet! Renault build quality and service sucks rotten goose eggs aswell!

I would say a similar style wheel would also suit your motor. Are those RS-GT's [?].

Call me sad, if you wish, but those seats look like standard VW sports leather seats. Just like mine. As someone further up the thread said - cream leather recaros are rarer than Hens' Teeth.

Makes 3 of us, moved over from peugeot and citroen myself. And too have no money :(

Its a shame it wasn't raining when you picked the car up, the grip would have impressed even more for the first drive!

Nice find with the rear spoiler and front valance!

I stand corrected. Those fronts are Recaros for sure! [:D] Well done on snagging a V6 with them!

Those of you with Recaros - in burnsyV6's photos, the rears look like normal seats - I thought the easiest way to tell if a car had Recaros by a casual look was the shape of the headrests. Recaros that I've seen before in Golfs have kinda 'tall' headrests, whereas the standard seats have the 'oblong' shaped ones?
