Re: What are the standard bodywork features of a Clio Dynamique 03
Hi there and welcome.
To be honest, Clios are very popular with the younger driver, and so tend to get modified more often.
Changing the colour of the plastic trim, is a cheap way to personalise your car.
Because the wings are plastic, then again - they can be cut away, to allow for larger wheels & tyres, or a suspension drop.
Here is a pic of one I'd believe to be 'standard' - the insurance won't pay for parts to be customised, unless it was declared on the insurance form.
It may be the case that the repairer can paint these items to your spec - but since the insurance won't be paying him to do it (and he won't work for free), it'll be you, who'll have to stump up, and perhaps sue the guilty party for the additional cost (if they won't pay voluntarily).
It might be best to speak with your insurer's legal department to clarify that.
This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.
