chrisbest0000 Posted 13, April 2020 Report Share Posted 13, April 2020 Hello all, Having recently moved to the country I had to purchase a car, Ive owned Clio's previously in England with the mk1 1.2, mk1 1.8 and then a Titanium 182. I thoroughly enjoyed the 182 and really wanted another. I figured that I wont be doing many miles for work and so the car will be for mainly weekend fun drives and the odd commute. So the search began, I was surprised at the lack of European cars and especially the sheer lack of 182's there were. However this made finding one even more special as I could tell that the gentleman who I bought mine from was a fellow enthusiast and had taken good care of it. It had only done 8000 km in the past four years and currently sits on 158,000. I am not entirely sure if it is Mondial or Artic Blue and can't figure out how to tell. Ill put a couple of pictures up here but more in the media section. I'm currently Melbourne in the east. I used to belong to an owners club in the UK and always found it a great place for info and for fellow enthusiasts to meet so am glad that I found this forum. Happy to answer any questions and I hope you enjoy the car. Here it is as i bought it: Here is how it looks now: I have only changed a few things - Silvervision indicator bulbs, team heko wind deflectors, removed the RS badge from the front grill, new Renault Sport badge at the back to replace the clio and a black Renault badge at the front. I also have the front splitter on order from Skoda for the mk1 Fabia - this is considerably cheaper than the original renualt one which was quoted as $534.80 delivered from France whereas Skoda was $38.50. Since these pictures I have cleaned up the front lights, darkened the trim all round and also polished the exhaust. I want to put some yellow tint on the fog lights and see if I can source the Speedline Alloys from the 172 cup/Trophy but they seem to be like hens teeth unless you have them shipped over. Heres some close ups of the blue to see if you can figure it out: finally heres the old cars: 18 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
