    Clio Trophy #167. 76k. Immaculate

    It pains me to do this and I know I'll regret it but #167 is going up for sale. Its been a very short romance but a change in work location and a newly acquired diesel daily means its now a 3rd car and prob won't get used. I hope the previous owner doesn't mind me robbing the particulars...

    Agreed Values for Trophy,s. ??

    The other thread currently running about the stolen car has got me thinking. How easy is it to get your insurance co to put an agreed value on the car.? I had one on Porsche 968 I owned, but that was on "classic" limited mileage policy..

    Refreshing rear suspension

    Hi - probably a dumb question, but if I want to get #478 feeling as "new" as I can, and i'm already all-in for a BG damper refurb, assume it makes sense to do the rears as well. Original sachs rears seem to be £105 as well - questions are: - Just the shocks, or make sense for Springs as well...
