    Facebook Trophy page - what happens to folk !

    Now I’m presuming that most of the people on the FB Trophy group will be on here and possibly vice versa so what is it about FB that turns people into idiots. Is it the instant conversation element of it that enables people to launch into a response without engaging their brain. I don’t know...

    Would you swap for a Williams

    I keep hovering over these. I’ve never driven one nor actually seen many in the flesh and I think the reality is you have to pay a fair old wedge to get something nice. It seems like the first “numbered” series is the one to have. Given they eventually made about 13,000 clearly the series 2 & 3...

    Ceramic coating day

    Given the weather forecast for today I thought I’d crack open the Williams Ceramic paint protection kit. I was given a couple of them a while back but left them on the shelf mainly because I was dubious as to the claims about these products and secondly the work involved. Aware of the claimed...

    This one was last for sale in 2017 at £10750 on 40k lots of scenic distant shots with the usual ramblings on the unique qualities of the Trophy we’ve read a thousand times. Looks a decent car, shite mats, messy engine bay....plenty more to pick at. As we know with these boys, folk get giddy...

    Why all the sudden interest

    last year, even 6 months ago, you struggled to shift a Trophy for anything like reasonable money. The ones for sale seemed to be listed week after week. This last few weeks they are selling faster than bog rolls in April. I brought mine home today from its extended stay in heated storage with...

    What’s tops on a Trophy these days ?

    Obviously as owners we like to think the worth of the car has increased over what we paid. It seems however that prices have flattened somewhat. I get the feeling that any Trophy, regardless of mileage or condition will struggle to make £8k. There were some that maybe 2yrs ago sold for over...

    Greenlight won’t insure my car

    Sorry for attention grabbing headline. I had a message left by Greenlight insurance to say the underwriter wont renew as the car has no current MOT. i would have thought as the car has been SORN for a couple of years therefore not being driven they would welcome insuring it with the risk of it...

    Some right knobs about

    I’ve just been following the FS thread on FB for the Trophy up for sale on there. Are some people born stupid, do they inherit it or just develop it as they get older...I won’t say grow up as that’s doing them a favour. The comments with regard to value, condition etc just defy belief. On the...

    What’s the current market trend ?

    I’ve not been particularly active on the forum for a while. I’ve not used my car for well over 12 months now. From what I’ve seen the cars have taken a fair old slump in values with little interest in any coming up for sale. I’m a little bewildered by this given the frenzy over them in 2017...

    Sales seem to have stalled

    A quick search on eBay brings up about 6 cars, all of which seem to have been for sale a while. What is it with these cars that makes it a feast or famine market. There’s the odd nutcase dealer who has obviously got caught trying to flip for a fortune but most seem realistically priced cars but...

    Think I’m going to move the Cup on

    I’m not mad about selling it but we are now up to 8 cars at home and only really use 2. As a few of you know I have 3 Clios. The Trophy, an Alien 200 and the RB Cup so it’s a bit of a last in first out. The Cup is a beautiful car. Almost perfect paint, when I bought it the bonnet had the...

    Which county claims the claims most Trophy ownership

    The postings on the recent new Sachs thread and owners locations for delivery got me wondering where the bulk of ownership is. In Yorkshire the only cars I know of apart from mine is MossyV6 and new owner as of yesterday, Christrophy. T777PHY with #491might be in our number too but he’s been...

    Made myself some pretensioner covers

    After fitting some trendlines in my Cup I was left with the exposed units which are normally covered by the centre armrest in the donor car. Using the Trophy ones as a pattern, some PU material and Velcro from Dunelm and the instruction book for my wife’s sewing machine I ran these up! I even...

    OSF wheel arch liner

    I'm after a front wheel arch liner for my cup. Only just noticed it's missing! It's the drivers side and it's the front section, it has a piece which covers the underside corner and I think has an inspection port If anyone can assist.

    I'm ashamed !

    I thought my interior was clean but today after inheriting a wet n dry vax I thought I'd give it a try on the drivers seat and carpet mat. It's one of those that injects cleaning solution and sucks it out at the same time. This is the colour of the waste water ! I'm hoping most of the colour...

    That's it I've actually finished- I think !

    I remembered today that I hadn't taken the side mouldings off the Trophy. Well an hours effort with screwdriver, masking tape, soapy water, scrubbing brush and wax and all back together with 12 years of road muck gone. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    A couple of nights in the engine bay

    I've been wanting to get the car finally finished off for a while. The only thing I had left to sort was the engine bay. The inner wing fuse box had annoyed me from day 1 having a broken locking clip. Also the plenum, fuel rail guard and the engine mount any alloy block on the drivers side...
