Help! Buying A Clio 182 In Sydney

Recommended Posts

Hi, new to the forum - thanks!

Looking to buy a 182 in Sydney. Sounds like the perfect car for me (mid life crisis! - Mrs thinks I'm looking for a Corolla :)

Can't afford to sell a kidney for a hot hatch, so I could use some help in spotting a good 182? Any help/advice much appreciated.

Welcome. Probably the highest population of Clios are in Sydney, so hopefully you find one soon.

They both start with C, so if there are any complications post purchase that's what the issue was.

Careful when buying a Clio your belt always lets go and you end up with your pants around your ankles?

Belts and braces - must be why it goes on time as well...  :news: You know, so your pants don't fall down...

Yeah be careful, your belt only lasts four years or 100,000 paces.

why not a 172?

 

@Pokinacha, don't be shy - please share your for-sale link.

 

On account that it must be one of the best for-sale candidates looking for a 172/182 to buy.

 

With 120fwKw, that makes it roughly the same as a WRX if I'm not mistaken.

 

So it's definitely worth OP having a look, I would have thought.

Now I feel bad.

 

 

But the 172 does have a spare tyre and better suspension that a standard 182...

I only meant that your car is the coolest and hopefully it's the next one to get sold to a newcomer wanting something awesome.

 

I'm sure there are other deserving cars to be sold, but I'm hoping that http://www.ozrenaultsport.com/index.php?/topic/27527-nswact-2003-clio-172-with-itbs/ will be the next to be sold.

 

As many would know, it takes a lot of extra effort to get ITB's working and a newcomer would struggle for perhaps years to develop a car as good as this.

 

It's just my opinion that a newcomer should take a serious look at this over a 182 but hey, it's the buyers money, so whatever you get, enjoy.
