    Cleaning the underneath

    Thanks all, good advice.. would you put the dynax in straight on after you have cleaned it up? Or is it worth while using something like zg90 paint first to bring it back to black and then put the dynax stuff on top? Thanks

    Sorry and you will need to swap the seat runners as well.

    Seat swap

    Hello, the recline button would be on the wrong side but other than that I think it would be fine. It’s 4 bolts for each seat - think it’s a deep 17mm socket underneath the car in between the exhaust tunnel from memory. I am going to take the seats out of my 172 this week, so will take some...

    182 Trophy front lip

    Just buy a Skoda fabia one for £15. Do the job perfectly and much cheaper than the ktec and original one if you can even find one.

    Brake pad recommendations.

    I had mintex 1144 and used them everyday and for sprinting my clio trophy at places like Coombe, landow etc and they never missed a beat. But some people say they are rubbish but my experience was a good one

    Clio trophy

    Hi all, Any trophy’s likely to come up for sale soon? I have seen the ones on eBay and they don’t have Sachs or are not original so keen to ideally get one needing some work or ready to go. I used to own number 409 but sold it last year. I am after one to be driven rather than stuck in a...

    Low Mileage Trophy for sale.

    There are a few cars about at the minute but in my opinion the prices being asked isn’t representative of the quality, prep and standard of the cars. for example there is one on 126k with little or no info on the belts, Sachs refurbs and a few other things - the seller wants £6k. Good luck and...

    Removing interior carpet

    Agree I removed all of the seats on my drive with axle stands. You need a deep socket 17mm from memory to avoid the exhaust and then you are away. definitely worth just trying to move the one bit of carpet for dampness before you start taking the whole interior out. Thanks

    Which one?

    It is low miles like the other one on autotrader but no mention of the cambelt, other servicing items besides the shocks, plus needs a tidy up with the floor mats, aircon panel, etc. Not sure 50k miles and Sachs being redone makes it an £11k car to be honest even if it is a clio trophy but...

    Facebook Trophy page - what happens to folk !

    Agree with the comments above. Facebook attracts keyboard warriors but also people seem to forget that everyone knows how to use a search engine to find past and current prices of things - it’s hardly rocket science is it. some people are definitely trying it on especially when it comes to...
