  1. I am biased to Clio ll’s and 182 Cups at that. You could get a 172 cheaper but in my opinion a 182 Cup is the way to go as you are asking. Its obvious you don’t mind getting your hands dirty, but cheap 182’s don’t come up that often and you may have to go over $4K to get one unless you wait and wait for a cheap one.
  2. Gee, I wish I was young and delusional like you again, but only so I could drink like I used to and be able to recover and keep drinking the next day, especially during the Xmas holiday period. Being older can be a bitch sometimes.
  3. You must be an older bloke because all these younger hipsters are on twotter
  4. I’ve put a cheap one in the for sale section, but it’s got a stuffed clutch.
  5. How about you come up a little and me down and we meet some where in the middle for cash today and you can drive it home today
  6. Get a Clio ll they’re much more fun to drive, and by chance I’m selling a black one at the moment. 😉

    I went and test drove one and disliked it so bought a 225 Cup, then I disliked the 225 and the Mrs disliked the 182 Cup, so we swapped. Yes I’m getting older, but gimme a Clio with a stick.

    Clio Sport 182 Cup

    No, that looks normal, all sticky and shity looking.
  9. As I said on AF, yes. The grill is correct to
  10. Just note, if paying for belts and rear wheel bearing and was quoted $1200 perhaps ad $1200 or more if it’s the clutch bearing when you ad in clutch and the rest of it You could be out $3K to $4K to get right and with cost of $3500 you’re hitting $7.5K.
  11. Depending on the cars price these items could make the purchase a little expensive if you’re paying a mechanic to fix them. Different story if it was cheap and you’re doing your own work. Going by that list of items it looks like the service history isn’t the best and typically one would say walk away, but the outside looks clean in the photo you posted above. So cheap means crap body or mechanicals and a clean and good service history go for top dollar and not knowing your budget what advise do we give. Buy the best car your budget allows? This could be the one, but only you know if it’s so.
  12. Don’t forget to come to the 2’s on 2’s Clio ll meet on the 2nd of Feb. The first "2's on 2's" annual Clio ll meet in Melbourne open to all 172 ph1, 172 ph2, 182, 182 Cup, 182 Trophy and V6 is on Saturday 2/2/19 at 5:00pm , Yarra Bend, Loop Picnic Area. https://www.google.com/maps/place/Loop+Picnic+Area+and+Playground/@-37.7987676,145.0093195,17.83z/data=!4m5!3m4!1s0x6ad643a6799a6425:0xe773dcfdc350067b!8m2!3d-37.7987578!4d145.0104701 It is the opposite side of the Yarra from Studley Park and entrance is obtained from the north side of the Eastern Fwy. At this point we will be meeting here, bringing some snags, steaks and drinks and talking Clio ll's for a couple of hours. It is a family friendly venue for kids or dogs with the playground next to the bbq area as well as the walking paths and foot bridge over the Yarra to Studley Park. We will be going for a cruise after we finish up here for those who wish to come for an easy drive somewhere beach side.
  13. 1. Could be bearings or old crap tyres. 2. Could be the rear muffler mounts. 3. Just drive it and see what his mechanic says to see when their due. A/C is also a common fault, and the auto wipers give me the shits, you’ll learn to live with them
  14. Go get a clapped out 1.4 or 172 for a $1000 to $2000 and trash it for three months. Learning how to change gears and not ride clutch. Should work out cheaper than doing a gearbox or a clutch change in the first three months of your 265
