  1. Thanks R182! Yeah don't get my wife started on the cars... sadly most of them are not on the road at the same time... used to have another 3 until a few years ago.... but always wanted a Clio Sport 182, so very glad to join the club and looking forward to learning more about them and driving it a bit more (and not having it at the mechanics!)
  2. Hi Guys, Thanks for all the responses. I have now had a few quotes back and have to say a bit surprised by the price variations (maybe its a Perth thing?).... Also got some dealer pricing. In summary (I hope its OK to post these), as far as I can tell these are replacing the same items and using genuine or comparable parts: 1.Timing belt- $1,100 through to $1,600 (as far as I can tell using the same parts). Dealer was $1,600 2. Major service- $500 through to $780. Dealer was $1033 3. Brake pads and discs (including the bearing)- $550-$750. Dealer was $829. One of the things that surprises me a bit is the variation in the overall price for what seems to be the same work. From around $2,150 all up to around $3,460 (dealer)... it seems like a big difference! So all in all around the prices that most of you seem to be suggesting... not sure how this compares to others in WA.... or even nationally???
  3. Thanks for this Krishna... its always hard to know. From reading the forums it sounds like a fair few people do work themselves on these... though I gather in general most people get the timing belt done professionally. I have just requested some quotes on some of this work, so will see what comes back and post it up here!
  4. Hi, New to owning a clio 182 and wondering what some of the key servicing (non-dealer) costs are like for most people? In particular: 1. Timing belt (inc water pump, auxiliary belt and harmonic pulley) 2. Major service/ minor service 3. Brake pads and discs Thanks in advance- and apologies if I have missed any similar forum threads... I did try looking
