Default RenaultSport Twingo 133

My Wicked Red Saxo VTS is now off the road while I work on it and so Iv bought myself a new car, as the title says its a RenaultSport Twingo 133. It's the non cup version but has the 17" alloys.

Picking the car up from near Hull



Then 100 miles later back at home.

They are nicer to drive but I feel I sit too upright and high up on the standard seats. I dont play with customers seat settings though so I may have been able to get that better.

Needs slamming on some BC Coilovers

I did the Renault badges Black.

I painted the back one Satin Black


(I'm also thinking about removing the rear wiper maybe)

The front badge requires the removal of the front bumper in order to remove it so I instead tried to use a decal kit from ebay, However it doesn't really fit 100% and just looks like a sticker so at some point I will paint it properly.


And I also bought some car mats for inside too.

I like these a lot, I see them as a modern day vts. Not oodles of power but still enough to be enjoyable and fun to drive

Little update about my Twingo 133

Iv had the number plate recess wrapped in black, I think it looks really good.





Plans down the line are to get it lowered and probably a new exhaust and that's it pretty much as it really doesn't need anything else doing to it.

I had one of these and loved it to death! Suffers same shite driving position as a Clio 172 though. The seats are better support wise IF you can set them up so the steering and pedals are comfy (took me playing around for months to get it right)

A guy from France has a Clio 200 engine in his so it's possible.

yea it took a while to get used to, but I don't really notice it anymore now.

It's a lovely little car though, I'm really pleased with it.
