    Replacement battery

    Have had a look and prices seem to vary a bit but these seem fairly cheap- https://www.carparts4less.co.uk/search/063 Notice there are a couple each of the Bosch and Exide. Can I go wrong here or am I as well going for the cheaper?

    Which type do I need?

    Replacement battery

    Going to be replacing mine before the winter properly sets in. Having a look online I can only really find threads from years ago. Is there a current recommended go-to battery for these? I'm imagining an offering from Bosch is a safe bet.

    182 Trophy number 113 on the market

    That's quick. Given what these have gone for on Collecting Cars recently I'd not be too hasty in dropping price. One thing seeing high advertised prices and another thing entirely seeing they're actually selling for high values in an auction.

    Brand New Sachs. (Group Buy)

    I'm away to put new front and rear cup shocks on the car for coming into the crap weather soon. Would you specifically recommend only using cup front springs with the cup shocks and not using the trophy springs?

    Rear ABS Sensors

    Ended up going with this- https://www.buycarparts.co.uk/triscan/7659429?awc=12641_1599596334_e4c0c2058ed5af45039c440d65c47f51

    Rear ABS Sensors

    My car is needing the driver side rear replaced and the garage has just been on the phone saying the ones they've ordered don't fit. They've been hearing they're no longer available but are going to phone Renault in the morning. Can anyone shed any light on this and point me in the direction of...

    Short rattle when depressing clutch pedal

    It's a rattle...? Depress and hold clutch pedal > rattles for 2/3 seconds and stops while the pedal is down.

    Short rattle when depressing clutch pedal

    As you can see/hear in the video, there's a noticeable rattle that appears for a few seconds when first depressing the clutch pedal. This then stops while the clutch pedal is still down. Had the original clutch replaced 2 years ago at over 100k miles. If it was a release bearing would you not...

    Boot Struts

    From another thread, another option and cheaper too-

    Trophy up on collecting cars

    Was thinking the same. Mine is on 119k. Not as good condition but still.

    New Front Sachs ?

    The new set I bought off ebay were originally from Jesse I was told. Just bear in mind any sets will more than likely need a seal change.

    Insurance Again

    In the cases where agreed values are not in place have most people not eventually managed to get a decent payout despite initial hassle?

    Inconsistent fuel gauge

    Do you know the part number for a new sender unit or are there quality aftermarket options?

    Inconsistent fuel gauge

    Cheers for that. Saturday morning had another obvious clanger. Had parked up on Friday night with over 70 miles showing as the range left and in the morning it was down to no reading on the miles left but still at least an eighth on the gauge. Drove around 40 miles before filling up and it...

    Not sure which number but he has posted on here.

    What’s tops on a Trophy these days ?

    I struggle to see a realistic scenario that's so severe as to negatively affect Trophy values. Bit more volatile when you're talking about supercars into daft 6 figure territory compared to an old school hot hatch still comfortably within 4 figures in the vast majority of cases.

    Inconsistent fuel gauge

    Finally got a chance to take photos of exactly what I'm talking about. The fuel gauge never used to come on with the needle showing a reading as high as that, at those miles travelled and the range showing a blank.

    What’s tops on a Trophy these days ?

    Just think how time will affect it. Fast forward 10 years and values can only climb, especially when loads of 172/182's are off the road and such a hatch is a distant memory for most.

    SACHS DAMPERS REBUILDS

    I just bought front and rear cup shocks from RPD. They have a sale on at the minute so it's not a lot of money.

    Brand New Sachs. (Group Buy)

    As per my comments in another thread, Jesse does not have any stock of these dampers. He said he was hoping to get more at the end of the year although how likely that is would be anyone's guess.

    ARB Outer Brackets P/N 546141405R- source?

    Trophy Sachs Dampers

    I'll break my silence now as I won the auction for these. I'm told these dampers were originally bought from Jesse. He does not have dampers for sale any more. Told me he's hoping to get more at the end of the year but I wasn't prepared to chance that.

    Did anyone ever get these dampers from Jesse and if so, for what sort of price?

    Trophy Sachs Dampers

    After I last posted I looked back at the old thread and it all sounded a bit dodgy- https://cliotrophy.co.uk/threads/brand-new-sachs-group-buy.54373/page-36 Have you dealt with him?

    Surely that link would be on here if that was still current? Or do you know otherwise?

    Trophy Sachs Dampers

    How do you know these are Twingo ones and is there any actual performance difference between those and the ones on the Trophy?

    Clio trophy wanted

    I'd echo that. Clearly been looked after and the cambelt has just been done. All for under £5k.

    Write off value? Sad times.

    Why does this happen with all the basic car valuations with the Trophy?
