    For sale is my 2005 Renaultsport Clio 182 Trophy - here are the key facts:

    74,000 miles
    2 original keys
    4 owners since new
    Full service history
    All belts done
    Shocks have been rebuilt

    The cambelt, aux belt and dephaser were done in 2010 at 31,018 miles and again in 2013 at 46,742 miles.

    I've owned the car for the past 4 years from 41,000 miles up to now and I have had it maintained regardless of cost by the best places within 1-2 hours of where I've been living (KTEC racing and Mark Fish Motorsport for all bar the most recent minor service which was with a local well-regarded Renault specialist).

    I have also had it checked by Mark Fish out of the service schedule to make sure it's in good running order and had all items replaced as advised. I know this is becoming a collectible car and it's a car I've really cherished so I've worked very hard to keep it in good mechanical condition throughout my ownership.

    It still has the original Recaro Trendline seats, lightweight Speedline Turini wheels (I just had these properly refurbed all round) and the all-important Sachs dampers.

    The exhaust is a KTEC item as the originals always rust and fall off as I'm sure you all know! The silver trim inside and out was replaced with genuine carbon fibre by a precious owner (at the cost of £2000!). It also had a carbon air box from ITG (again fitted by previous owner who seemed to be into carbon!) which is the only aftermarket air box Mark Fish recommends and reckons gives more power (I have the original air box if you want it).

    The air con condenser was replaced a while back as they can easily be broken by a rouge stone and now works perfectly and is protected by a fine wire mesh behind the grille to stop any future mishaps (again recommended by Mark Fish and tested on their race cars so no issues with cooling).

    The front end does have a fair few stone chips - the paint is known for being soft - but then again, it is a 12 year old car and it's not bad for it's age. The steering wheel has had a bit of the classic 172/182 "melting effect" going on, but it's not falling apart like many. Otherwise the car is in absolutely excellent condition especially given its age.

    I still have both original keys and masses of history and receipts for the work done.

    I'm selling the car as I want something cheap to do Trackdays in and this is just too valuable and nice to do that to!

    I'm looking for £8500 (not looking for offers) as I have spent a ton of money keeping this car in perfect mechanical condition and I'm confident it's one of the best available today.

    The car is in Bath, Somerset and is garaged.

    Only selling as I've had it for 4 years and want to try something different!

    PM me for for info!

    Cheers,
    Rob

    I reckon so. Hard to gauge with so few out there now at a wide range of prices.

    I agree. Seems a very good car. I'd keep firm on your price and hold out if you are in no rush to see it go.

    As above. Price is spot on as I pitched my own a little above to achieve similar. With us both in the southwest I'd hope we become a magnet for buyers!

    Forgot to add - tyres are all matching Michelin Pilot Sport 3 XLs with 5-7mm tread - the correct tyre for the Trophy. Most tyres ruin the handling as they're too soft in my experience, so these are a must have (although not cheap!).

    Really nice looking car there.

    Just quick question,is the little black strip on the lower front bumper slightly marked or is that just reflection from the ground?

    Thanks!

    It is a carbon splitter but the lacquer has started to go cloudy in places hence the discolouration (maybe from stones hitting it - I'm not sure)!

    I should also list the carbon bits (can easily be replaced with standard silver bits of any 182 if you wanted to revert it to original):
    • Carbon front splitter
    • Carbon rear bumper finisher
    • Carbon rear wiper housing
    • Carbon 2.0 16V side badges
    • Carbon front foglight housings
    • Carbon door handles
    • Carbon door pulls
    • Carbon gear lever cap
    • Carbon handbrake cover
    • Carbon steering wheel logo
    • Carbon dash trim (centre, right and left)
    • Carbon A-pillar covers
    I think that just about covers it. Was fitted by a previous owner at a cost of over £2000. It didn't bother me and think it looks much more premium than the painted silver trim on the standard car.

    I suppose with all them little bits added up it would come to around 2k!!

    Is it easy to get the splitter recovered again?

    Either way you have nice motor

    Hoolio if you don't mind me asking how did you get it looking like that again?

    Did you just get it recovered?

    I've never done anything with carbon so it's all new to me

    Pretty much, I used various grades of wet and dry, shopping the moment I struck through to the CF. I was pretty careful but tbh when it gets to the stage up above you don't have much to loose.
    Oh and a good clear coat, Upol is good and pretty cheap.
