  1. Ahh was wondering who bought this. Nice one!
  2. I'll vouch for all the above re good history. I got my 182 cheap but have spent 2.5k ish bringing it up to standard plus the faffing around really! But I will say 180km and she's strong as an ox as others have said.
  3. Ripper for sale in the sale section mate. In SA right now but that's nothing with a one way flight!
  4. Cheers ttimbo. Calling the service history patchy would be a compliment if that gives ya an idea...I've already assumed I'm going belts and whatever else constitutes a major service ! Could also use a new muffler at some point. Thanks also for the other thread links and will take a look!
  5. Well I collected her today. Confirmed a couple of things. Definitely a cup (yay) and secondly definitely a rear left wheel bearing (also yay). Otherwise had a nice run home and I see why you guys all like these little beasts! Not quite as clean as I thought unfortunately but not all bad, few chips here and there and couple small dings passenger side but otherwise lots of car for the money already hit the headlights with a restoration kit and certainly looking much better than they were!
  6. Thanks Moosey, appreciate the info. Will have a look when I go to pick it up in a few days as have told the vendor I'll take it! She's had a hard life so time for some pampering
  7. Thanks again Gambit! I guess that's one small win. I will know it's been done haha
  8. Cheers all, I'll come clean on price. It's $3.5k which h even with the km I think is pretty good for a 182 cup. Have priced the timing belt and bearing replacement at 1200 which seems ok and I guess had thought even if I spend 3k ok it given condition of body/interior should be ok. As always appreciate your inputs
  9. hi all, i thought no doubt you could assist here (perhaps i called myself an owner too soon...) the vendor of the car had an oil change and check completed by his mechanic per my request. The notes supplied say as follows: - rear exhaust muffler worn - RHR Park Globe N/W (no idea what this means haha) - minor water pump leak - engine has oil leak - possible power steer rack leak - suggest clean engine + rack and then recheck - rear wheel bearing noise -suspect possible clutch bearing noisy - needs further investigation - headlight lenses faded - the vendor also confirmed timing belt was done at 90k in 2011! so my current thoughts are most of this stuff, whilst fairly major, i suspected. This being the timing belt needs doing, bearings/discs need doing and muffler will eventually need doing. The items i'm mainly concerned about are the leaks. Can anyone offer some perspective here. Note: I can still walk away despite really wanting this car! thanks, Lachlan
  10. Cheers Danny, hey quick qn..I've just realised I actually don't know how to 100% confirm it is a cup! It has the darker wheels but I know some 182s would've had these fitted over the years. Is there a quick way to confirm?
  11. Hi Henri, appreciate your insight. A copy of the works you had some would be great!
  12. Thanks very much its certainly not the tyres as they're new so will focus on the bearings. will check the muffler mounts which I totally neglected and wait on word from the mechanic! Thanks, Lachlan
  13. hi all, just wanted to drop in and say hi. I've been snooping around these forums for a month or so whilst i tried to find a clio sport. I've wanted one now since released so about 18 years! Yesterday i finally put down a deposit on a silver 182 Cup. The Price was too good to pass up given the condition (albeit does have a couple of qn marks mechanically..) Bit unsure if this is the appropriate place to address my "qn marks" but it would certainly put my mind at ease if other forum members could chip in on a few things: 1.) it seems to have a drone from the rear of the car, i've read here wheel bearings are a common issue so leaning this way. Just unsure if it could be something really nasty? 2.) a small rattle from rear (i'm actually not very stressed about this so unsure why i'm even noting it!) 3.) i have seen the members here suggest only buying a car with a good service history and confirmation around items such as the timing belt... I'll be honest the logbook in this one was less than perfect and was unable to confirm when the timing belt was done. The owner is going to check with his mechanic around this. I am simply going to assume i need to get it done prior to really driving the car (i'm in no rush) as it has 178XXXkm on it. Otherwise she all looked good bar aircon that doesn't work and auto wipers that don't! can't wait! pic attached for viewing pleasure and look forward to meetings and all the contacts/resources here.
