sooo never knew this existed, decided to make a post to show off my 2 pos's

1993 Renault Clio 16s

sooo this is a weird story, car was given to me for free by one of my dads friends, he was using the car for parts for his ACTUAL Clio Williams. He needed the space in his garage and called me up...
1 day later and I have another old car.
speccies for nerds:
1.8 16v F3P engine, 140(ish)hp to the front (obviously)
Unknown strut brace
Pipercross intake
K-Tec headers
Straight pipe & decat to Scorpion tip w/silencer.
Not too loud, just nice
BBS alloys, 195/60/16.
Pioneer stereo, FLi door speakers and FLi 6x9inch subs in the back fascia thingy
Full leather interior w/original leather bucket seats (rare iirc)
Electric windows, power steering etc etc
HID's and yellow foglights
FKperformance sunstrip







2002 BMW E46 318ci

So this was a junkyard save come drift car that I bought for 800 euro with a roll cage, welded diff among other things.
It has:
No interior
Bucket seats
Hydro handbrake (not installed yet)
Welded diff
Random intake
Exhaust cut at the gearbox
Style 66 (I think) front alloys, recently refurbished.
No back bumper or boot floor
Nardi genuine steering wheel
that's actually it...
Excuse the green shit, wasn't me, previous owners "work"

yes those are Styling 66 from E39 M sport, dunno if facelift or prefacelift. I thought they didn't fit on E46 though, got told that I couldn't fit OEM E46 rims on mine or else I'd break the hub

Style 66 was the wheels you got with the M-Sport package which got offered on facelift, and I think 1 or 2 last years of pre-facelift.

They fit on E46 and other BMW with hubcentric rings. E39 has 74,1mm hubs, while almost every other BMW has 72,5mm hubs.

You, with the E39 can not fit any other BMW wheels directly on yours because you have too big hubs. You need adapters or to machine the centers.

forgot to mention I have a 00 528i msport parts car that I got them from. It has a blown ecu sadly...guy left the car down to our garage for some repair and then decided to move to Australia. Never seen him again, 7 years later car is mine for parts. No point getting it roadworthy, suspension is rusty as shit.
And I've never really seen E46 rims on an E39 before tbh, dunno how it would break the hub but I guess there's some reason.
well there's your answer lmao

okay then only the trunk sill lol
shipping is ~55 bucks, depending on what you have I'd actually take some parts off your hand if you want
(steering wheel, bumpers, sideskirts, seats, rear door insides, depending what I find else some more)

thing is the car isn't in my name, so I can't really sell shit from it. If the guy signed it over I could but I have no idea where he is now.

So last weekend I did a few things to the Clio, decided to polish and clay bar it. Gotta say it helped a lot with getting the paint back in good condition.



Its definitely more shiny, although not anywhere near what I want it like yet. Whole cars needs a respray nearly.



Fitted these FLi 6x9 subwoofers too, 60 euro or something from Halfords. Easily fitted, just like 4 wires. Obviously they're nothing amazing but they give better bass than no speakers and go loud too so i can be cool with my "chunes". Has a full FLi setup in the car paired with a Pioneer head-unit.



I've also painted the small bonnet grill and bumper grill, not dry so no pics yet but they're 100000x better than before. Next up is engine bay detail and cylinder head&intake manifold respray.
forgot to say i got a parts Clio 16s that apparently has some good stuff on it. Gotta pick it up some time so I can get the stuff.

damn i got scammed lmao
but yeah they're pretty good, only thing i can say thats bad about is that if you go loud enough there is a pretty bad "gzzh" noise if you want to say that. Like metal hitting off something.
you get what i mean

# doge : damn that bastard looks mean, i'm jelous :doge:
it looks alright i suppose...still has a lot of problems though.
-its like a shower every time I drive it, leaky roof
-tracking wholy fooook bad, needs new steering rack bushings
-brakes are literally nothing until pedal is fully pressed, fooked also
-exhaust is held on by cable ties currently, previous owner
-part of the door trim is falling off, also previous owner
-missing foglight, previous you get it
-sunroof doesnt work, previous owner
-drivers door doesn't open unless you lean on it, happened out of nowhere
-previous owner installed hid's wrong so i have one high beam and one low beam for each setting
so yeah...quite some stuff to do
