    the gray parts are painted dark blue mat, so everything is uniform.
    and the sparco seats are covered with alcantara, like the other parts already (sky, columns, engine cover).
    and the embroidery is aligned like the recaro seats of my megane rs.

    start:

    arrived at the saddler and decomposed:

    original covers separated and with the new alcantara blanks and my template brought to the embroider:

    for painting, the parts totally disassembled yet:

    and replaced the alcantara- part from the door panels.
    after warming up in the heat chamber of the paint shop, it went off without losses:

    the embroidered parts are back and get it next week the saddler:

    so i can finish the installation of the center console:

    Just looked these V6 clio's up, yeah I want one. So they came out in 2001, stopped making em in 2005, when new roughly 27 grand. Nowadays pretty much the same price tag, if not more for a decent one. That's 15 years and really they've not dropped a penny, taking this into account that really 15 years old isnt classed as a classic YET so hasn't earnt the big shiny price tag of a "classic car". The numbers will be dwindling and the fact each one got its own plaque stating which number it was off the production line adds to the wantability. If you bought one now and let it appreciate and gather maybe 5 years the car will be entering the 'I remember them, they were cool' part of a blokes brain who now is old enough to throw some decent cash down on it. Not forgetting the rest of the list of things that make petrol heads go weak at the knees I.e mid engined rear wheel drive v6 and that body kit and the fact it's only got two seats will infact be in its favour. In less than 5 years time time these will be demanding big boy money without doubt. Just look at it, makes me wanna drive up the side of a building and say f*ck you to global warming. I best get saving.

    They dropped alright. You could get a nice one for UNDER TEN GRAND four years ago. The bottomed right out, cat d ones I saw down at £7k, @andybond@andybond will verify. We talked about buying one.

    In the last 4 years prices rose and in the last year they have ROCKETED. Last july there was two silver phase ones for sale online at fifteen grand. This week there are two phase ones for sale at £23k and £25k.

    Prices are all over for them. Silver ph1 can be had from £15k upwards , but other colours such as blue command a premium.
