New to Renault


Recommended Posts


Hi all

I've just bought my first ever Renault!  Purchased from forum member, jim60t

It’s a 2002 Clio Sport 172.

It’s already received a few mods from jim60t during his ownership of the car:


RaceSpec tune

Koni Yellow Adjustable suspension all round

Eibach camber pins - running 2.5 degrees camber at the front

Powerflex rear motor mount insert

195/50/15 Hankook RS3's all round

Whiteline 18mm rear adjustable sway bar

T2 slotted front rotors, QFM AR1M's brake pads

Major belt service completed by RenoTech in December 2016

I plan to do 5-6 track days each year so the car will be mostly track-orientated but still road registered.

Nice Looker, had one myself still shed a few tears when I see one.

Looks like its ready to go, maybe a rear sway bar adds some adjustments, RS 3 Hankooks a great tyre

Looks great. Can I ask what you paid? I've just got myself one too! Not as much good gear as you have though. Should be a rocket.

Looks great, welcome!

Innit funny, a couple of years ago nobody wanted 172s. Everybody was after 182s and Cups in particular. People with stock 172 wheels couldn't give them away -- a lot ended up in land fill.
