    What's your mileage after 15 (and a bit) years?

    I’m up almost exactly 10,000 miles since last count. I’m quite surprised it’s not more. It really should be more. Must try harder! #043 - 50,007 #138 - 77,049 #256 - 117,898 (RIP) #329 - 45,295 (OFN) #356 - 63,200 #407 - 97,515 #429 - 40,400 #430 - 48,182 (OFN) #455 - 71,888

    Rear Springs (Part Corroded)

    In that case, I’d try something else 😉

    Rear Springs (Part Corroded)

    Cooksport springs on the rear offer quite a noticeable difference in ride height so I’d suggest Cup springs from Renault - they’re so close to OEM you’d be hard pressed to tell the difference.

    If it was me I’d base it purely on their condition/performance and would ignore age and mileage. If they still work, great! If they don’t, get them done. Keep it simple 👍

    Admiral do agreed value policies?

    Are there any other providers to try since this thread was last updated? Cheers!

    Hermes lost my Dampers

    60mm bolt spacing is Trophy fitment. 54mm is not.

    ICE upgrade opinions

    Is it worth replacing speakers unless you’re going to add an amplifier? Will there be a discernible difference? Something else to consider is to add an under seat sub woofer, that could help too.

    Unique seat subframe number plaques

    I got some domed ones for mine, either from here or eBay.

    Boot Struts

    Magnetti Marelli from eBay. You’ll get other responses too, I’ve only tried the above so they’re my recommendation.

    Brand New Sachs. (Group Buy)

    My guess is more have been sold on than put to work.

    EVO sticker

    Have you tried or whatever the website is? They might have a shop, if not Im sure you’ll be able to find some on eBay.

    Red Paint...

    If it was me I’d take it to a professional detailer with a strong reputation. They will know what can be revitalised through their services and what might need to go to a paint shop to be put right. At least then you’ll have a better idea of next steps and things to research for either DIY if...

    Red Paint...

    In particular places or all over the entire car?

    Red Paint...

    OP - are you talking about having panels or the whole car resprayed? Or are you coming at it from a paint correction/detailing perspective?

    Trophy No88 - Stolen - Edinburgh

    If you think their initial offer is a fair reflection of the condition and mileage of yours, plus you value your time and want to avoid the effort you might need to put in to possibly get a better offer, then take it. Without any details of your car I’ll assume it wasn’t on 150k miles and in...

    Insurance for young'un

    Common insurers I’ve seen include Keith Michaels, Greenlight, Flux, Sky, Brendacre, and all the well known brands. Consider asking if they’ll offer an agreed value policy for peace of mind should the worst happen. The last thing any owner wants is a battle to secure a reasonable payout. That...

    Trophy No88 - Stolen - Edinburgh

    Not sure I would, I’d be gutted, but I’d take the agreed value and move on. Would I want it back not knowing what had happened in it or how it had been used? Hopefully I never find myself in that position.

    top mounts and bearings

    You could try the chaps at Renault Parts Direct, they’ve always been extremely helpful in the past.

    New Suspension All Round?

    I don’t know many people at all that have gone with the Pro option - is there a reason for that?? I’ve no idea how they compare but having tried standard, Cooksport and Eibach Sportlines I’m an advocate of the latter - now on my second set 👍

    Wheel Spacers??

    For me it was a decision based on aesthetics, and I didn’t notice any discernible difference. Common thinking is that if you run wheel spacers on the rear (vs stub axle spacers) you put added strain on the rear wheel bearings. Trophy wheels are ET45 (or 43, I never remember which,) and the Cup...

    Trophy Number 446

    If it’s not there then I’d be surprised if there was much if any documented updates on the car, which is a real shame. I wonder how many Trophys are off the grid and yet to have an entry in the owners register, I’d like to think it’s a small number and this is a rarity. The best you can do is...

    Have you found the entry in the owners register (if it exists)?

    WANTED - Good Gearbox

    If you’re on, NorthloopCup, or on Facebook, Mark Mayfield (same person) has a good reputation. The gearbox for a Trophy is no different to that of a 182 👍

    How Many Left and How Many SORNed

    I guess it’s indicative of how many Trophys are second cars, still, it’s a much higher number than I’d have thought.

    Insurance agreed values, which companys.????

    A couple of years ago I was a new customer with Keith Michaels who did the business. Can’t say with any certainty that they’re still offering it to new new customers. All the best

    Write off value? Sad times.

    Weren’t Greenlight no longer taking on Trophy agreed value policies? Or did I misread that somewhere?
