    Hi all, looking for 172 / 182

    Thanks again for help, got a 182 from Melbourne, low k's, nice clean stock example, loving it - what a great bloody car the Clio sport is! Let the journey begin.... Gaz

    Got one at last!

    Just bought a 182, silver, 72000 km, nice clean stock example. Really good service history, belts recently done. Had to go to Melbourne after not finding what I was after here in Sydney - flew down yesterday, jumped in the car & drove back (long day). Love the car - responsive, communicative, no rattles, and felt much more solid and composed on country roads than a 1090kg hatch deserves to be. Previous cars were a Skoda Octavia RS DSG 2l turbo, 2001 WRX (modified, 3 years of supersprints), 1998 WRX (standard). Intentionally fail to mention Ford and Toyota company cars that slotted in between. Have a Kwaka ZX9R as well. Will probably go for RS tuner, maybe a pad filter for acoustic amusement as well. Will investigate what is the best with simple suspension improvements also - polyurethane bushes, swaybar, camber bolts and a good wheel alignment etc. Any suggestions welcome. Big grin since popping my Clio cherry

    He checked the spark plugs, there was some water, blew it dry with an air gun. Seemed okay when he started it, but symptoms reappeared after 3 or 4 k's.

    Hi all, looking for 172 / 182

    Thanks all for the warm welcome and advice. Nemz, I had a look at the 182 F1 last night. However the owner had degreased and washed the engine in preparation for sale, and water has gotten into the electrics somewhere. Was misfiring and a bit shakey. So unfortunately did not drive the car. Owner is taking it to his mechanic tomorrow, I'll go back Friday or Saturday. Nice clean car, though. I also looked at a 03 172 at Chidiac motors, Burwood. 154k, log books, reasonably good condition, $5990. At this stage this is my fallback if the 182 falls through. I can get a 3 year warranty for $1100 which has some appeal. I want to get an independent inspection report on the 182 - there are a number of companies that provide this service, has anyone had any experience with this? Thanks again, Gary

    Hi all, looking to purchase a 172 or 182 sport in the next week or so - clean example with good service history, road use. Anyone with one for sale, advice, or any other suggestions, please contact me! Test drove an 03 172 today, first drive of a Clio, great drive but a bit ratty on the inside. Bloody impressive little car though, certainly understand what all the fuss is about. Sydney based. Look forward to getting into Clio culture and meeting fellow enthusiasts through the forum. Gary.
