    I thought the same with the berg mate after dinging the fornt end..."fix it ,sell it, break it, fix it, sell it"...it's become a parts donor for my track build + odd bits for the cup from time to time....keep it...sort it...You'll soon love it again.

    That's the hammer mate, had my belts done by him recently and a timing check...cars drove much better since.
    There's plenty of choices for coilovers...if your using it mainly on road have a look at the b14's :up:

    I think I may take the Clio man, be nice to see how healthy she is. Pointless doing the VTS as I'm not going to be doing anything to this engine!

    I'm 100% up for it, but I can't justify a deposit on it as money is tight my end at the moment mate.

    Well its been over 12months since I was last here, how time flies! I sold my Berg 172 a year ago after owning it for 4 years and getting it the way I wanted, I went over to the dark side buying a 300hp Subaru Impreza RB5. Ive not 'gelled' with the Subaru since buying it even after wanting to own one for aslong as I can rememeber! I don't know what it is with these clio's but hell i've regretted selling it. Luckily i've stayed in contact with owner and he's finally agreed to sell it back to me and the best part is he's only put 3k miles on it since he bought it :smile:... Any way I'll be selling the Subaru very soon and will be picking up my 172 Saturday. 12144829_10207180508487533_1957611385273694874_n.jpg 11659271_10206438599100262_3308729148727459964_n.jpg

    Welcome to the new guys :smile:
    I'm from the Oakdale area near Blackwood.

    My Trophy should be home soon (in time for some decent weather, drives and meets). The heart transplant is well under way now!

    Welcome along Ethan, nice little blast the other day. Car goes well, get on the parts for sale section and see if you can find the strut brace and harness clip you're after young 'un.

    @Ryan172 the burns editions are fetching some silly money now aren't they? Looks a beaut fair play. Welcome back to the fold and good luck with the sale :up:
    (I'm sure I've seen this before on the low budget militia page run by @Dano' ?)

    @SharkyUK Glad it's starting to come together for you matey, it's been a long old time coming.
    I'm envious, contemplating going boost myself now and it's ALL your fault, soley yours. No one elses. (Ok maybe a few others but I'm laying it all on your shoulders!) :sweatsmile:

    Who? Moi? :tonguewink:
    Thanks bud - you know the pain I've been through with this thing! I'm getting excited now and I don't even know what the final result will be yet. I'm not after stupidly high power figures but I think it will be pretty tasty and the quality components used should hopefully see it last for a while so I can enjoy it :smile: I won't lie, I've loved driving our Type-R (still a capable car and I'm a fan) but I have genuinely missed being in the Trophy. Looking forward to seeing what you decide to do with yours... just don't be blaming me! :innocent:

    Less of the "who moi" malarkey :tearsofjoy: tempting us all with your shiny goodness and minty mint parts/build.
    I do indeed know the pains matey, if anyone on here deserves a top spec motor after battles with thier car it's certainly you. I can't imagine the difference it'll make to the fun of driving it (you know I thought it went well before, even when popping out of gear at Llandow!) more so against the Type-R, I do hate on them now and again but they do drive well (found that out curtosey of Mr @msremmert) good egg him.

    The plan was to go low boost with the engine from the berg once planted in to the MSA spec shell but...I've found a few faults with it now that have put me off a great amount. To the point I may well strip it for spares and start with a new engine/block.
    I should of listened to Mr Potter and removed the cams + ecu from it when I had the chance :sob: Live and learn as they say.

    It certainly won't be ready for CSF now :triumph:
    But, I might boost the cup instead. Maybe...which will be your fault.
