Clio Conundrum In a quandary over our Trophy. We bought it three years ago as a replacement for our 182 which we had almost restored to new having spent 3 times what we paid for it on replacing and updating the bits and getting it sparkling. (Although this spend is not as bad as my Mini Innocenti which is something like a ten times number - and still going) The Trophy we picked up was in good nick from a cosmetic perspective but had the Ktec suspension. We upgraded that to the brand new Bilstein set having just missed buying a spare set of original suspension to have in the garage for the collectors perspective,(this remains on the shopping list). At this year’s MOT the Trophy came in and the CO2 was high. So rather than find a dodgy Joe and get it MOTed we decided to let Andrew Cochrane (ex R Sport) who has looked after it since we bought to compression test it, take the head off and have a look. Bores were good so the view was there was two oil control rings were in need of replacement. So whilst not the end of the world we still needed to crack the cases and do an engine refresh, and once starting down that road the opportunities expand….. So we are now at a cross roads. Having taken the head off our view you see it as an opportunity and hence replace everything that may need done and effectively have a new engine -gearbox/ refresh with new belts, gearbox selectors etc. etc. rather than do the bare minimum. From a personal perspective I love the thought of doing that. However I am in central London, have no spare time any time soon and the garage is already occupied (Mini still needs a bare shell rebuild). So I am swithering between selling and buying another Trophy or spending the next six months formulating the rebuild strategy and executing via an R Sport garage specialist (Andrew). Then I will have the satisfaction of a car that I know from an engine and gearbox perspective is like new. This will be great but my other half may get rather upset in the meantime with yet another rebuild project. So my question is what is the car worth as it is ? The details are Mileage approx. 90k miles (think it just clicked over before I dropped it off with Andrew), Internally engine and interior is completely standard. Only change I am aware of is that it has a recent Bilstein suspension and springs suspension set up and upgraded discs/ hoses. Cosmetically whilst used in town I think its in good nick for its age/mileage and I have some pictures attached.
