For sale my 2004 Liquid Yellow RenaultSport Clio 182.
I have owned this vehicle since 27th August 2012 and loved ever moment. In fact, I swore I’d never sell it, but the time has come to move on.
Altogether I have owned five 182s: this being the first one! In my ownership, I have had a no expense spared policy. What the car needs, the car gets!

So, I'm all aware of Trophy prices, but what's the going rate for liquid yellows and petrol blues. I've seen them circa £5-6k, but they don't seem to sell at that price.

You are gonna be my inspiration mate. One day I'll own 2 of either a petrol blue, liquid yellow, or Trophy. Amazing collection.
I loved the LY, as I didn't care about the mileage or depreciation of the car (Saying that, LY always hold their own). I could use it when and how I wanted.
It was basically a dream CS.net sheep car, which had all the desirable modification.

The only reason I sold it, was to help fund a house move. The Trophy for me personally, is better than money in the bank.

It looks like Trophy's are inflating at £1k per year at the moment.

But....you've gotta buy something that you're gonna use too. There's little point in having a garage queen and not doing anything with all that untapped fun.

If I have a preference, I'd go for a Trophy and a petrol blue and get all tgevdesirable bits put on the petrol blue, and I'd keep the Trophy as pure as possible.
