    The creation of the 182 Trophy and related article on Pistonheads

    I'd have liked to have had it redone, but they've stopped doing cars now - and I'm down to the last drops of the little top up pots :( But that said, when she gets a drizzle of water, she come up like brand new still - was a great investment lol

    Wanted - Pair of front wheels

    I'm selling 4 x 15" TSW racing wheels in black for £150, which I used to use as winter wheels, while not speedline's they'd cover you while you had the refurb. Having spent the best part a year trying myself to source a couple of trophy spec speedlines, you could be waiting a while.

    Insurance Again

    I've tended to fluctuate between greenlight and adrian flux over the last decade. Only issue with AF is the insurer they generally use isn't as highly rated as Greenlight's list of insurers. But I'm not that bothered about agreed values, you don't have to accept any payout offered and given...

    damn right - I'm not ever selling it, spent way too much on her to let it go now.

    The creation of the 182 Trophy and related article on Pistonheads

    Yes Graeme, an inspirational creation and what a way to sign off the epic 182. I'll suggest to Nik to sticky the full article.. If you still have any influence at Reno, then I'd suggest they should be continuing to support the model by allowing parts to be remade i.e. their user licenses need...

    Wanted - Trophy rear bench

    The FF 182 half leather one is a nice upgrade, but if you are only wanting stock - the basic clio rear bench is the same. The trophy one isn't anything special and doesn't match the front seats.

    Inconsistent fuel gauge

    Yeah - I remember on wheeler dealers, they changed a sender unit and it was mentioned to never do any work on them without first draining the tank a day before so a possible spark (as it's an electrical circuit) doesn't light you up like guy fawlkes.

    182 Trophy or 200 full fat cup

    The feel like different cars to drive - the 200 is a lot heavier so the you can't feel the extra 20 bhp, the gearing makes a bit more of a difference though. The trophy does feel like a stripped out car now, compared to modern cars.

    Inconsistent fuel gauge

    Sounds like a possible sender unit issue then - you'd need to test the unit before outlaying to replace ideally.

    What’s tops on a Trophy these days ?

    Prices will always fluctuate - if anything looking over the longer term, i'd say prices have started to creep up over the last 24 months on average....

    Part 2 - Eibach Trophy Front Springs - 15 sets.

    I'd be suggesting taking names on a constant basis then when you hit a mark of say 10-20, trigger a group buy so you can guarantee a market. I'll be interested in ordering some more when I use the last ones I have in stock - not sure when that will be but I'm estimating it to be in the next...

    Trophy Info

    Was thinking of taking a drive up the road to have a look at this car.... pretty sure there's only 3 Trophy's in West Yorkshire (mine, another which a lady drives, which I've spotted a few times and this one, which I've not seen about for years....) but it may be a different Trophy of course.

    MOT Failure - Front Strut Nuts

    They're completely road legal as were standard oem on the subaru's but couldn't tell you if the nut is a locking nut - first I've heard of an MOT failure due to not having locking camber bolt nuts... This lot supply a lot of the UK market - maybe call them and ask...

    MOT Failure - Front Strut Nuts

    14mm iirc - go for eibach camber bolts as they provide adjustable camber. - they're a universal bolt so fit a range of cars like subaru, fords etc.

    Write off value? Sad times.

    Taking the previous cat D status out of the equation, I'd say push for closer to £7k with the present prices starting to climb. I thought price to replace was more important in the equation, so this could be a min...

    MOT Failure - Front Strut Nuts

    Not 100% sure but they could be slightly larger than normal 182 ones. Am surprised if someone at some point in time has replaced them - have a look under the bonnet and post a pic up.

    T800PHY Stolen?

    Have seen this about over the last few years - owner lives in Leeds iirc, not sure on who though. Strange that they've not responded to either the CS thread or facebook posts though - they may be away??

    Broken/Damaged Cup Brake Lights

    If you're talking about the centre section light - the V6 spoiler uses a slightly different light to the cup spoiller iirc. But there's a fix that people have used - which replaces the OEM light cluster with LCD light strips, looks an easy fix from what i've seen. - check over on cliosport for...

    Greenlight won’t insure my car

    one of the 'issues' with greenlight is their policies have a min limit of defacto 3 stars. most of the insurers are 5* though, so you do tend to pay for the better policies. I was with last year, but their renewal quote was double what Adrian Flux's was (sub £200 just), but this is with a...

    if you message Nik, it may be something that could be tied to this database via an excel spreadsheet. not sure since we moved platforms on how this could be embedded though.... Nik could know though??

    Greenlight won’t insure my car

    if it's sorn, then it's legal status is the same as if it's MOT'd, the DVLA just has to have t listed on the database as either SORN or MOT'd. Seems very strange, have you asked why?
