Megan the 16v Dynamique (Pic Heavy)

Post  Rbrocky on Fri Aug 05, 2011 9:22 am

After just joining this site i thought i would run everyone up to speed with my Meg

Bear with me....



My project had been going on since october 2010 but havent posted any pics on here
so i will copy each post from another forum that has been following its progress
currently looking Colour Coding and maybe a ph1 225 front bumper (if anyone can point me in the right direction please pm me Smile )

here we go - post by post
enjoy!

hi, since ive been a member on here for a couple of months i think its only fair i make a thread

when i was in my early teens i started karting, in a rotax max using a solo chassis, then my car history started with a 1.2 clio grande that ended up with a ph 1 172 kit on it and carbon bonnet, the list goes on to be fair!
i quickly gained the name Mr Neon - though they didnt last too long!
heres a couple of pics













LOOL

now for my 2nd car, the meg, my log book came through yesturday, so i could finally tax it and get it on the road - i love it
its a 1.6 dynamique with panaramic roof, leather seats, traction control, climate control heated seats, 6 CD changer and the list goes on, i think its got most of the optional extras.
bought it with only 54000 miles - considering its age, i dont think thats too bad






first things first, i needed some carbon back in my life
so these bits


to these via carbon skinning:








done by extremeinferno on cliosport

then changed all the interior lights to white! using MTEC bulbs (not LEDs prone to flickering) from hids direct


these 182 wheels came up cheep and they are the same stud fitment as the meg, so couldnt say no Smile



(cheaky meganesport decal in the window :p)

need some 16" tyres though, so PM me if you have any for sale Very Happy

i cant deal with no AUX socket so bought a connect 2 adaptor, plus RCA converter and loom extention to convert myself. looks quite professional IMO Very Happy



the CD changer will soon be for sale, and am in need of a tray to replace it, again PM me if you have any or want the CD changer and make me an offer Smile

mods to come:
- slight tints on the rear
- Double DIN pioneer stereo and GPS
- false floor in boot with complete JL set up including 2 amps and Carbon sheet to cover the lot
- removal of MEGANE badge
- quality bumper sticker
- ITG filter
- ph 2 clocks and dash lighting (to change from Orange to White)
- maybe 225 front bumper
- if they come up cheap, genuine Xenons

there was more, but i forget!

hope you like it C + C welcome

so, havent posted an update in a while as there hasnt been much going on! just mostly looking for parts/tires etc etc!

anyways got a JL audio sub at long last w6 along with a box to house this in and a matched amp to power it
the evential plan is to sink this into the floor with a carbon fibre top and a perspex window, but a little way off that yet! jsut completed the wiring and its in is the main thing!
anyways onto the important bit! PICTURES Smile



size comparison hehe (pint glass)




the state of behind my glove box (RCA converter and IPOD converter box


to create this neat set up Smile my iphone just about stands up right with no wires being pulled on Smile



then the winter came along with a serious amount of whoring!




MY FAVORITE OF THE BUNCH







things were starting to look up when my exhaust split at the join of the centre box to the tail pipe Sad bad times - but a cheep fix at a local exhaust custom manufacturer Smile


and today - my wheels came out of refurb and my rubber came - only too right it should all be fitted Smile
can see how my sub is set up for the time being too
running 40 profile falkens on the front and 45 marshals on the back







and the finished result of the day



can someone say archgap Razz

maybe the profile on the front is a little too small!
i may lower it a tad to get rid of the emence arch gap!

anyways im going to get back onto EXTREMEINFERNO to try and persuade him to carbon skin the radio surround/climate control surround to match the blancing plate Smile

along with ph2 rear lights etc etc etc etc same list as previous post!

c+c welcome

and before you FLAME and say lower lower lower! I KNOW ITS MEGA ARCH GAP for the time being!

Major update!
I'll get some better pics when i get round to it.

Started this month with not that much fundage so i fitted a black sun strip (not to everyones taste but you know), then got some "powered by FDM" stickers mate along with some pink underlining of the MS decal (can't reely see it in these pics (subtle but i think quite effective)).




Then these babys turned up shortly after pay day!


I originally ordered FKs but they were out of stock everywhere and no one knew when they were going to be back in stock Sad so i went V-MAXX.
ATM the rears are as far as they allow and the front is at about -50, I think I will take the front down another 5mm to even it up with the back, but will check out what happens after they settle a little.
Slight bit of camber on the rear too

Before:



After:





Not sure whats to come next. -Maybe some RS matts and definately silvervisions, I've got a Pink TRS strap to fit too when i CBA

Cheers for looking

Not much of an update, just more of a tidy up from when i first bought the car. apart from a few dents on the rear arch etc. the only other cosmetic damage was on the drivers seat - major wear on the bolster as seen below:





After finding a retrim company B-trim that work with all sorts from ferraris to maybach's doing everything. They agreed to carry the work out and replace the whole bolster for £100 (Not bad IMO)





Highly recommend them

Then fitted this (yes it isn't a race car or track car or what ever is deemed "acceptable" to have a tow strap)




and a couple of pics of how the coilovers have settled down



I am planning to:
-buy a lightened flywheel
-a remap.
-paint my bump strips

and lastly go on my first trackday, my options are silverstone, brands, snetterton, rockingham or bedford autodrome. Any advice on these woult be brilliant Smile

Thanks
Brocky

Talk about picture heavy! My Browser was jumping all over the place.. try using seperate comment boxes next time after posting say 4 images rather than posting 10images in one box then pressing ok (send)

Ive re-sized some of your images too as they're a tad big.. ive not done all of them though as it might be quicker for you to do?
If your using a link such as photo bucket try a different img code Smile

you're making good progress though with your car mate.. that seat does look a bit tatty lol

no idea, what to comment on first because there sooooo much to look at - certainly is pic heavy!
One thing i can say, is its looking way better! The pink is a nice touch.. like your lil warning sticker too about accidents Laughing Laughing
its always the lil bits like a TRS strap that make a difference to the way the car presents itself
