Should i do this to my car?

  1. lowering is stupid as long as looks tacky..word
  2. As stated "you do not know who you are talking to."

    Even if Chris V hadn't built alot of cutom cars I do not see why you should be responding to his comment the way you did. You disagree? Fine, state your reasoning and make yourself heard. Don't shoot off some silly remark questioning what he owns.

  3. do not change those wheels!
  4. Are you American? Do you even know what kind of car it is?

    Cheers for your comments guys, i was only playing around with photoshop. I think i will keep it 100% original as it is now. These cars are hard to come by in original form these days, and the car is in pretty mint condition and is a low milage example.

    BTW the wheels looks like this, it is hard to see on the PS. But i still like them.
  5. the dark window tint and some other rims. but no lowering

    just my 2 cents
  6. leave the car alone, its is an awesome hatch

    the 1.8 16V is as good as the clio williams
  7. you are a complete moron
  8. I'm American... is that good or bad? <A BORDER="0" HREF=""><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/smile.gif"></A>

    The wheels are cool. A mild tint to the windows is a good thing in my book (helps some with glare and helps keep the interior a little cooler), I just am not a fan of the ultra-dark limousine tint. I think lowering it would look cool too if it wasn't dumped too far.

    Here's a decent photo of my car. It's got a light tint and is lowered around 2 inches (50 mm). It's not a Renault, but we don't get those in the US anymore. <A BORDER="0" HREF=""><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/smile.gif"></A>
  9. that looks very nice, subtle but great looking.
  10. They don't drive the cars when they're that low. More than likely it has some form of adjustable suspension, so that they can put the car on the ground when they're at a show or parked.
  11. haha am i. You think i car about your opinion why? And who si Chris V ? is he some kind of car desinger cuz if he is i had no idea. and really what kind of car does he drive?
  12. Instead of being apologetic, you should really just stop posting.
  13. xbentleyx, you've been previously asked to be more respectful, but you don't seem to try or care about being this way. Please respect other people's cars, and what is more important, other people's opinions. I strongly encourage you to apologize, both to dalla and Chris V.

    On topic, I love the original looks of the Clio, so I'd keep the car like it is now <A BORDER="0" HREF=""><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/wink.gif"></A>, it's in great conditions.
  14. Well yeah, there are always exceptions to the rule. But for most modern (1980ish onwards) cars, my 'theory's' pretty solid.
  15. You dumbass, Chris V is also known as Chris "Chip" Foose, a famous car designer, do a search on google and get a clue.
  16. Lower it but keep the original wheels, don't tint it.

    Also, don't go with a cheap-o lowering, get a good kit...
  17. tint for sure. looks great
    Wheels, yeah
    lowered, maybe, but not that much
  18. He he, it is good. My point was that he probaly didn't know what kind of car it was, but you clearly do. Your car is very nice. What engine is it
  19. I try to keep up on the cars available outside of the US.

    The engine is a 2.0 16V with some mods (I can get more specific if you want).

    I just posted a pic of my GTI to show what I was talking about as far as the light tint and lowered, but not "slammed" look. I wasn't trying to hijack the thread or anything. <A BORDER="0" HREF=""><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/wink.gif"></A>

    Chris V is Chris Vetters, not Chip Foose. Chris Vetters has still built some very nice cars. You can still run a google search and find some of his stuff.

    EDIT-- there some stuff here:
  21. wheels:yes as long as u like it
    Tint<A BORDER="0" HREF=""><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/angry.gif"></A>s long as it's legal
    Lowering:no cuz what if u hit a pothole ur sideskirts front and back bumper are jus messed up
  22. Thank you my friend. I've decided not to change the wheels, as i spent quite some time polishing them. But i might still lower it.. Can't really decide.

    Monkey--> Please do, seems like a very nice car, IMO the Golf 2 is the nicest Golf.
    Also i'am thinking of getting a second Clio 16V when i'am done studeing in ½ a year. The plans is to make a streetlegal trackday, it is going to be running a 2.0 16V engine as in the Megane/Spider.
    I'am going for a throttle body setup along with full rollcage and bigger brakes. But i really do have to finish school first. :-(


    Chris V --> Saw some of your cars in the Link from Monkey, you've build some really nice cars, do you have your own company?
  23. ive never heard of Chris Vetters but what kind of cars does he design. Is he a good designer

  24. What about reading the thread like other people?
  25. none of the above
