Agree on the the blue Clio. Nice !

 

Welcome Gary. Nice to see our little forum has an international flavor about it :wink: i think the UK market is the biggest RS contigent, and contributes alot to what Renault does with their RS cars.

 

Cheers

Welcome Gary! I had the chance to visit the TRAX carshow (and arrive in a car on the CS.net stand) and it's clear that RS tuning in the UK is MASSIVE.

 

Blue flame looks great. Have you got any other plans for her? 8)

Awsome idea to put a set of Sach shockers on the Clio. Would be close to a Trophy set up. Im still waiting for someone to do it here in OZ. And see what improvements they may get in lap times.

 

I think I may be waiting quite a while. Doh !

 

If and when you set it up be sure to post it on here with pics and prices. As im sure i won't be the only curious one here in OZ. A few trackers may quite possibly be interested in the outcome.

 

Cheers

Welcome Gary!

 

Love those exhaust tips on your 182... best I've seen I reckon. I've got the Remus and love it but if I changed it would be for something like that!

 

Let us know how you go with the Sachs... I wonder how much they'd be??

SOMETHING RIDICULOUS LIKE 6K AUD FOR THEM

 

ID BE GETTING AST COILOVER BEFORE THESE PERSONALLY. (OR THE YOZZA REBUILT BILSTEINS)

Have seen 2 sets on ebay which sold for £400-600, i would get them serviced , think a full set new is in the region of about £3000, £1200 for each front leg :shock:

Hi Gary, that's an awesome polishing / waxing job you've done on the 182.

 

(BTW guys, I think you'll find "Blue Flame" is the exhaust system brand on the 182- not the name Gary calls his car. :D )

 

Yes Blueflame is the name of the exhaust company who makes the system, sorry for the confusion :lol:

No shortage of nice drive roads to choose from round your way, Gary. I lived just down the road in Bristol for 3 years. So how'd you end up with an Aussie name? Lol!

Hey There Gary. Welcome to the forum.

 

At a first glance, I thought you said Swansea, New South Wales........which is about 10 minutes from where I work....... :lol: .......but you are a bit further away than that.

 

Cheers - Dave.
