    Newbie Hybrid Owner

    Hello to all :D

    I have just bought a '96 N 68k Rsi with a 16k F7R engine

    It's a mish mash of Rsi, Valver and Williams stuff

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.d...MESE%3AIT&rd=1

    It has the bubbly headlights if I wanted to change to the wider wings I would have to change most of the front end right????

    Wings
    Bonnet
    Headlights
    Bumper

    Are the rear arches flared compared to the Rsi??

    It seems quick enough just a bit fiddly in left handers

    It has valver suspension but took a knock in a pot hole which bent a momo arrow

    It was checked over by the guy who had it then but anything I can look for

    Where is the colour code on them too?

    It feels as if it leans a little too much in the corners

    My first Renault but done Shitroen VTR, VTS & Peugeot 306 GTI

    Although the 306 seemed a little limp in the corners after the legacy

    i was watching that on ebay should be able to surprise a few people on the road with that, i don't think the rear arches are flared on it though, can't really tell at those angles but they don't seeem it, to get rid of the bubbly lights you'd need bonnet and wings aswell, bumper and grill aswell if you want to go all the way.
    looks like a good little car tohugh for the money mate

    Thanks

    Does feel quick though, although the mrs went past like I was stood still at about a ton when the Legacy came on boost lol

    The clio is mine while she swans about in the Leggy once the sprog is born

    T minus 9 weeks and i'm spendingmoney on a french toy lol

    Yeah not bad considering he spent some cash on it and then sold it

    Have receipt for a fair bit of stuff from Renault and a set of wheels amp, sub and Chameleon HU

    I saw that too - I really liked it - wanted my missus to buy it

    I'd leave it as it is matey - change the alloys but I like just the way it is!!

    Wings - you can use what you got, theyre a straight swap
    Bonnet - see below
    Headlights - only need to change the lights if you want a ph1/2 bonnet or a 16v bonnet
    Bumper - will fit with ph1/2 stuf but doesnt look right

    Are the rear arches flared compared to the Rsi?? - nope, only on a valver and williams they're flared

    It seems quick enough just a bit fiddly in left handers

    It has valver suspension but took a knock in a pot hole which bent a momo arrow

    It was checked over by the guy who had it then but anything I can look for

    Where is the colour code on them too? that will be on the plate above the driver side head light which i assume is in the same place on the ph3's ?
