  • Clio 172 CUP

    I'll be as comprehensive as I can here.

    Ive recently returned from working in the States and decided to get a fun daily for my partner. I was after a 182 FF ideally but this popped up but it's too quick and raw for her...

    We all know good and near standard Cups are on the rise price wise so I'd love to keep it as a weekend toy but that would be an instant argument.

    So after a 182 FF now!

    Location - Tunbridge Wells /Crowborough

    Mot Dec '17
    111k miles
    Hpi clear
    Belts done 600 miles ago by Carl @ Merseyclio
    None smoking/no pets interior
    Near Standard car with a few mods

    Brakes -
    Brembo high carbon front discs
    Mintex M1144 pads

    Suspension & steering -
    Eibach Sportline - 40mm springs
    Powerflex purple dogbone mount
    Electronic power steering conversion (DCI rack, electric column & control module) adjustable from 100% on to fully off. Fantastic steering feel

    Engine -
    K&n panel filter
    KTEC decat pipe on stock exhaust (slightly louder than normal, a mature sporty note under load) am currently looking for a fully standard system

    Wheels and Tyres -
    MINT refurbished anthracite Turinis
    Federal 595 SRS tyres. (all good, no rear a bit low, 5-6mm)

    Recent service and front wheel bearing.

    Not abused and incredibly strong engine. I've had a few 172 cups and 182s and this one really pulls VERY hard.

    Bad bits, I'm being picky and very honest here!
    Small bubble of rust on natural rear arch (see pic)
    Melted steering wheel, surprise surprise
    Brakes squeal a tiny bit
    Gear knob has no writing on it as most do
    Front and rear Renault Diamonds are black (I'm not a fan)
    Very Faint dent front of bonnet
    No rear wiper attached. Am planning to fit a grommet.

    Apart from that it's a stunning little car, used as a second car and its an absolute joy to drive!I'm 30 and drive this pretty relaxed. We are getting 39mpg on b roads over last 500 miles. It barely goes over 3000 rpm and surprises me every time when I let the revs build. It really puts my mapped 200 to shame in a straight line.

    2400 ono or a tidy full fat only 182, just not Arctic Blue.
