t’s been quite a busy month for the V6 in preparation for the summer. Discs & pads fitted, fresh rubber on the rear, MOT passed & my wallet significantly lighter. The discs & pads weren’t quite as straightforward as anticipated as the rear calipers also needed a rebuild. Lack of availability for original parts reared its head again with these. Also, after doing some research, it turns out that the rear calipers are the same as found on the front of a Citroen XM. The last job on the list for this month is to carry out a 4-wheel alignment.


I’ve ditched the plans for modifying the Clio V6 & will be keeping it OEM. I’ve got another project car incoming that should scratch the OEM+ itch. Anyway, back to the V6, looking forward to getting out to some shows & meets over the summer months. Come say hi if you spot me out & about. I’ll hopefully be at Silverstone Classic, and no doubt a couple of trips to Caffeine & Machine will be on the cards. Hopefully, I will also be aiming to break the 50k barrier (mileage not value) as I can’t bring myself to have it sat in the garage & not being used as intended.
