    Au Revoir

    Well I waved goodbye to # 008 today and apart from my 3.2 Carrera Club Sport, I've never been so sad to see a car go. I'd wanted a Trophy for years having had plenty of other hot hatches previously and reading the famous EVO COTY several times and of course watching the Harry Metcalfe video...

    So good!!

    Had a dive of my eldest lad’s RS Clio 200, full fat cup last night. It was OK, but nothing special. Got in the T this morning - much, much better. The T feels light, nimble, engaging -just alive and up for a good thrashing. The 200 was just dull by comparison.

    Wheel Spacers??

    Having not gotten a response in this FB Trophy Group thread I thought I'd ask here. Is fitting spacers just a cosmetic thing or does anyone think...

    Trophy in exalted company

    Picked up my Exige Sport 380 on Saturday. It's an absolute weapon. Until the GT3 is sold, I seem to have rather too many fast cars. Will be keeping the Trophy though - the fun factor is just so accessible. It's also got about 1000x the load carrying capacity of the Exige.

    008 was sick, but fault cleared

    So having driven like a dream on the way back from having a few bits done at Rentech on Friday, when I went out in it Friday evening the engine management warning light came on after about half a mile and it started running rough. There was also a bad smell, that I'd struggle to describe. I...

    An update on # 008

    So I'm hopefully close to getting my Trophy pretty well sorted having acquired it in April. The front Sachs dampers were badly in need of a refurb, so Rentech took them out for me and fitted some loan dampers. They also fitted the set of Mark Fish springs I'd bought. The car drove miles better...

    Mark Fish springs fitted - very pleased

    I had the front Sachs removed, loan dampers & a new set of Mark Fish springs fitted today by Rentech. What a massive improvement? Much firmer, but not too firm & massively more stable with no crashing on unavoidable minor potholes, or sunken manhole covers. Can't wait to see how much better...

    Pioneer DEH 8400 BT Head Unit for sale

    This CD player, FM, USB, Aux, Bluetooth head unit with steering wheel controls was in my Trophy when I got it. I've now swapped for a DAB unit. We live in a relatively poor signal area but FM wasn't the best on this unit. It comes with everything in the 2nd photo, but no box or manual...

    Smaller Steering Wheel Options

    I'd like a smaller wheel - is the 330mm Renault Sport model the best option?

    New owner - Handling questions

    So I got my Trophy yesterday. On the way home I had a chance to push it a bit on a twisty bit of a road. The car felt a bit "floaty" over high speed bumps and there was a bit of crashing when I hit small potholes / bits of bad road surface. The Sachs dampers were service just over 20,000 miles...

    Owners manual / Renault Sport Manual

    Does anyone have a PDF of either / both the above please? My car came with neither and they are apparently no longer available. Thanks if you can help.
