  1. Not sure what you mean by 'uncomfortable stretch to them'. Europeans tend to put smaller section tyres on rims than Ozzy/Yanks do - primarily because European cars have suspensions that work !!!!
  2. For high performance road tyres - the Pirellis you have, Bridgestone RE003, Michelin PS4. For extreme high performance - Yokohama AD08R, Hankook RS3/4, Bridgestone RE71R. STay with the standard fitment size - RenaultSPort have done lots of miles testing and they have set the car up to run on 205s - changing size could be detrimental to handling.
  3. OK - then, apart from the driving courses, some really good tyres. All of the RS models (mine is a Clio 182) are really well set up and, if you know how to drive, very fast standard.
  4. Depends on what you want to do with the car - ? road ? track. The best thing any P plate driver can do though, is a defensive driving course followed by a high performance course.

    Inlet manifolds

    Portmatched and gasflowed usually done only on race engines - not much benefit for an otherwise standard road car. It take considerable time to do and hence is expensive.
  6. Totally agree - and do a high performance driving course. You will pick up more time by doing that than anything else!!
  7. slick

    Tunes and mods

    Or - you could do an advanced driving course and learn to drive it !!!
  8. Welcome to another 182. I have a 2005 Black Gold.
  9. Never heard of Borg and Beck brake pads and rotors - they are known for clutches and drivetrain stuff. A lot of people on this forum use DBA rotors and Ferrodo pads. Have you bedded the brakes in?????
  10. I would be steering away from the mechanics and not the European cars!! I think most on this forum would agree that our cars are reliable. I have owned a renaultSport Clio 182 for 14 years and it very reliable, economical and cheap to run - and great on the race track!!!
