    Default Clio body kit?

    What is the best rally like body kit available for the Clio (sport)? And what colour do you think is best to match the look?

    Actually any links to body kits would be good, have already seen the ones at autoparis.

    If you MUST have body kits, assuming ahead of any mechanical upgrades, not assuming you will take it rally. Check around some of the UK sites, k-tech racing is one of them. cliosport.net should have few links there as well.

    Metalflake purple or Candy Apple Red with orange broken pinstriping adjacent to all the shutlines, it gives a cool faux stitched on panel effect. Guaranteed to turn the car into a head swiveller!

    I reckon the clio must have a body kit, or at least a spoiler. Great mechanics but.

    Hmm, obviously marked so I can recognise the Renault if the car was amongst a whole bunch of riced non-Renaults!

    Thanks Europa, thats what Im talking bout.

    Thats the kit I saw at auto paris, I was thinking getting a silver clio and saving on a total respray.

    Rice renault? Isnt that a juxtaposition (too big a word for me too spell correctly)

    Are there any new models of the Clio coming out soon, Im starting to think new.

    Anyone know about how much the maxi 1600 body kit would cost (without sprey and fit)?

    Umm, well you're best to talk to Autoparis about the pricing. But i'd imagine it would be around the $5k mark or so. Considering one other ex-clio owner i know bought the rear-bumper off the V6 clio for about $3k, not including fit/paint.

    So....yeah up there. Talk to Paul though.

    Good luck - i actually quite like the 1600 kit, seen it before when autoparis were just starting to arrange bringing it to AUS. I think it brings out some nice shape to the existing great lines of the RCS.

    However, there are many other kits out there. But if i were to spend that sort of money i'd be looking at the 1600 - smoother lines in comparison to some after-market kits that look a little tacky in my opinion.

    See ya!

    Hehe! Of course I would!

    Unlucky coincidence, talking about painting things white. Matt's IS200 got white paint over the paint work, due to some asshole pouring a tin of white paint over the road late last night. It's goin' to cause some damage unfortunately.

    Some seriously stuffed up ppl out there.
