Wow I didn't notice the G's in the stripes before now!
That's the reason the stripes are still on, as originaly they were originaly coming off. Now glad I changed my mind, as they have grown on me :D

is the new RS badge just on the G's?
Karl 'Twingogeekeo' would probably know and would be the man to ask if you want one.

Edit - Maggi has the same RS badge on a white 133, so not limitted to the Gordini's

Looking good there mate.

Glad your keeping the stripes on there mate. A Gordini needs it's stripes.

And yes the Gordini does have the new RS badges from day one by all accounts. Looks like the 2011 RS Twingos have them as standard too.

I can live without polished rims, as i'm not a fan. Hence the anthrasite ones. But the stripes stay ;)

I'm not sure I'm feeling the lack of polished rims but I do love a nice Gordini! :)

A bit of an update as it has changed a bit over the past couple of months :shock:

First up was some club stickers.
White front and back, plus black ones hiding on the side windows

The usual HID, silvertec indicators and LED fit went on...
"Link to the how to post on fitting HID's- recently updated"

A bit of porting and maching on the throttle body and upper intake manifold
Theres was a lip, shown here on either side of the butterfly.

After some work with the Dremel and sanding drum, followed by some 500 grit paper to remove the lip and also match the TB to the plenum inlet :)

"Link to the rest of the thread for manifold removal"

A bit of beading after a couple of coats of DODO Hybrid. After 1100 miles to collect it, the FCS sticker gets a good location on the bonnet

Samco silicon hoses

"A bit more here"

BMC CDA induction filter

The samco hose and BMC CDA has made this lot redundant

I still need to sort the cold air scoop, but I'll see what Streamline do with Orb's scoop

Supersprint Exhaust

Pressed plates from FCS

Front pipe to follow ;)

Looking good...! Lovely carbon bmc and the exhaust fits so nicely.

Great location of the FCS sticker too!
