    Soudns like a realistic budget in the climate.

    Few will be advertised for that I would imagine. But hard cash always talks.

    Good luck with your search.

    Good ad, I like it. It’s all you need really. £7k offer for a 13 yr old French motor sounds a tempting sale. I reckon you might just succeed

    Find one without the front shocks (so it’ll be cheap) and join the group buy for a new pair... job done!

    Interesting history to that one.. it’s been a proper track car in the past so not surprised the seller has spent a minor fortune getting into shape.

    Diff with refurbed box and RS2 and a shed load of work at Mick’s.. 2017 tyres..

    I actually think it’s a bit of bargain if it’s not too much of a dog cosmetically.

    I suppose it depends what you’re after. Ideal for someone looking for a track car, not so much if you’re not.

    Initially bought mine for the track but ended up with one that’s “too nice to track”! I sometimes wonder if I bought one a little rough around the edges I’d use it more.

    That’s the problem now prices are going up. Cars being to expensive to really use.

    Hopefully the OP has puchased the car in Nottingham otherwise sorry to hijack.

    I am also looking at the same price level, something that needs a little work and I can take to the track. I don't like polishing cars too much.

    If your tracking @Marc N Smith .. you would be better avoiding trophy tax and just buying a 172/182

    I have a deadline and will go for a 182 Cup or a 197 F1/Cup if nothing turns up.
    But I am 6'4" and hope the Trophy is a better driving position than a standard 182 Cup?

    its marginal and tbh recaros are regarded as worse support for track work than 182 seats so you would be better buying a bucket anway and slaming it to the floor. There is a lad on the cliosport who sells a very low adaptor for the recaro seats in a trophy. which would help.. if you look at my ownership period on my old trophy 120 you can see when i had them.

    Just saying if track works your end game then saving £4k plus on an almost like for like car. sticking coilovers on and some other toys would be a cheaper option. Not trying to put you off as clearly we all thin T's are ace.

    Would a Megane rs250 not start to creep into your budget?

    Interested to know if anyone 6'4" is driving a Trophy and has tried other Clios?

    I found the standard 182 tight but fit in a 197 no problem.

    I'm 6 foot 1 and yep the Clio 182 can be a squeeze but the 197/200's are great. As are the r26 megane's.
