...I was getting fed up of modern cars with their dazzling LED Cree Lumen things, especially in in traffic when they are so thick they can't do a hill start without sitting on the brake pedal. I thought I'd upgrade and drive to a higher standard to make them look worse.

They're a big improvement and because the ones that are supposed to produce red light I no longer have pink fog and brakes.
Nice, definitely something to consider. Upgraded reverse bulbs are always welcome .

not sure i'd much compared the clio to the bravo tbh, they are both hatchbacks but similarities kinda stop there, very different cars. I used to be proper anti-renault but tbh my neighbour (well old neighbour as they moved last month) is proper into her renault sports and I quite like them, even nearly bought a 182. She had a blue 182 cup and now has a LY 200.

tbh i think i preferred the 182 myself but both are nice cars, she did have a crappy 1.2 mk2 as well which was a complete POS. My old 155HGT felt much more grown up refined car to a clio 182 though, completely different.

Anyway, nice to see another bravo being actually looked after, particularly a hgt in yellow - i kinda jealous, i want one! lol
Oh no I agree, they are completely different cars, the Bravo is much more grown up, the Clio is like an over active child haha.

I prefer the MK2s to the later cars too, much more 'raw'.
_______________________________________________

Right then folks, I realise I hadn't updated this in a while, well I stopped using the Fiat in February as another car came my way (A Volvo C70 Coupe) but bored of its grown-up-ness so time to play Fiat again

Back in January I started to clean the car up further, over the years the car seems to have only had the odd quick wash and dirt has built up in all the grooves around the windows etc. Tackled with an old toothbrush and some fairy liquid, not the most high tech solution but effective

Also ditched the airbox for an open cone filter, much better low down torque, genuinely surprised! Located it neatly at the end of a lovely shiny pipe that is no longer shiny, damn wet and muddy Herefordshire!

But, my main news this time is that I finally found a good condition throttle body hose , that took way too long... But only cost 11.00 posted.

Also bought some new rear discs and pads to put on, the discs cost less than the pads haha. Total including delivery was 27.72

New pair of front tyres too as the one kept deflating and where both down to 3mm or so too.

Anyway, onto the photos.

Re: 99 Bravo HGT 155 - Broom Yellow!

The Police are only willing to "allow" three hundred but there are over a thousand who have offered to turn up. We may just be in the same place officer not part of the official convoy at all.

Re: 99 Bravo HGT 155 - Broom Yellow!

Not gonna lie, was considering it as it's not far away, would have preferred to take the Clio tbh but the Fiat also qualifies :P

Will be do some trips later in this little thing for the first time in 4 weeks, can't wait. I might actually experience full power rather than the coughing I was getting WOT at high revs

Re: 99 Bravo HGT 155 - Broom Yellow!

Well, well, well.

Sadly the MOT expired on this car on Thursday 20th, let me explain.

Last weekend I was preparing the car ready for it's MOT by changing the rear discs and pads but sadly on removal of the rear caliper it started leaking, due to the constant need for a working car and lack of space I threw my toys out of the pram and got my beloved Clio back out of the garage (overdue tbh).

So unfortunately I'm offering this car for spares or repairs, it needs to go but needs work!

I'm hoping a fellow enthusiast will be willing to take the car on?

Here it is on eBay...

Re: 99 Bravo HGT 155 - Broom Yellow!

I have a pair of rear calipers for you or for a forum member who wins the car on eBay.

I have just bought a supercharger for my Bravo so I'm spent out this month.
