Not lowered as standard hence why I fitted the lowering springs. To be honest, it's lowered it more than I wanted on the front but is what it is. I would hazard a guess its lowered around 40mm. Manufacturing year is 2015 and the car is not fitted with AdBlue.

Unlike with many other manufacturers, the ECO version of the Clio really only had one modification which is a longer fifth gear. Hence why I added the lowering springs, in an attempt to copy the likes of the polo blue motion.

Few issues with the car at the minute:

The car comes fitted with quite substantial undertrays (Under the engine compartment and in front of the rear axle). Unfortunately, these were obliterated when I managed to run over an exhaust backbox on the M62 @ 60 mph. Caused substantial damage to the underside of the car including the undertrays which I haven't replaced to date. This is on the list.

The tracking also requires doing which is a constant battle with the current condition of the UK roads. I set the tracking up myself which saves some money and I set up with the minimum amount of Toe.

I am only running cheap tyres on the car, which are on the standard 16" x 6.5J rims at 195/55/16. I plan to buy a set of 15" x 6J steel wheels as standard on the lesser models and fit the smaller 185/65/15 tyres. I will try and go for some ECO tyres if I can justify the higher price with the savings.

Car never came fitted with the ECO button (strange considering it's the ECO version) however all the wiring is installed in the car. Not sure if this will make any real world difference.

I will get some more photos of ride height and ground clearence.
