First time Clio 182 Cup owner

Hi folks,

 

I've just bought a stock blue 2005 Clio 182 Cup (Renault newbie) and would like your suggestion on where to get it serviced in Canberra?

 

I've noticed that it doesn't stop as well as other 172s that I've driven. To be fair they all had aftermarket front brake rotors and my standard ones have a fair lip around their edges (worn perhaps). Can anyone suggest an upgraded set of brakes if they have had good results from them?

 

Thanks for any guidance.

Brembo HC's and Ferodo DS2500's are the usual "go to" aftermarket solution, they are not expensive at all for the performance.

 

If you don't intend using them on the track, the OEM pad/disk combo is solid.

I would go to DS3000's for serious track work.

Welcome!

 

As above, then if you're not planning any track work, stock discs or Brembo HC are both good.

And if I were to take the car to Wakefield for a track day once in a blue moon would the above combo of Brembo HC and DS 2500 suffice?

 

If so, where do I order them from, here or the UK?

 

I already have a MK1 escort on coilovers and 4 pots for serious track days so the clio wouldn't cop a flogging :)

Alpine Motors in Phillip or Roger Keft in Queanbeyan. I've used Alpine and the service is good. Louis is a French car fan and is very happy to help out. evilb (Bryan) on this forum owns a heap of Ph2 Clios and probably knows more about them than anybody else in Canberra (the two aforementioned mechanics included).

Welcome, good to see another Canberran join the ranks. There are a few of us which go for a blast out to Corin or Brindabella Road every now and then, so keep your eye out in the social section.

 

+1 for Alpine, haven't tried Roger Keft, and as Exar says Evilb is the guru and has helped me many times.

Welcome aboard,

Agree with above, OEM or Brembo DS combo.

Rears are fine on OEM IMHO.

Can always try EBC/DBC/or RDA as some of clients have asked me for local/cheaper options and they seemed happy with the results.

Cheers,

WOLF
