All the sale gubbins is done and now just the small matter of picking this up next weekend. It came up for sale last week and knowing what's been done to this and how well it's been put together it was hard to say no. I've been away from the Renaultsport scene for nearly 18 months for various reasons, and to be fair if this hadn't have come up for sale when it did I would have carried on with life without the need. So now I can slowly get back into the swing of meet ups, cars n coffee, trackdays etc. It's good to be back 😊

TDLR - im an idiot and keep buying scrap Renaults and a new project is in stock
A few months ago in my old job i had a 68reg Kangoo, got it with delivery mileage brand new. Noted pretty crap in diesel form, and handling average however i had heard that the underpinnings were very similar to meg/mk3 clio, and confirmed when having a look underneath briefly.
Returned when i left the job, good riddance to tracker and 62mph speed limiter. Thought to myself that it would probably be sound, with more power and better handling.
At the time i still had my old Kangoo 172 (Racevan2), which was leagues ahead. Lacked a bit of straight line speed, and deep down im a turbo man missed the turbo torque so sold which stuck some money back in the pot.
With the drive looking less cluttered and bank balance up a few quid said no more projects until my Extra (Racevan1) is back on the road.
Had the idea of a Megane rs powered Kangoo2 for a while...
As some of you may know already,i had an accident in my Cup & hit a barrier.In a nutshell,Raining very early cold morning on AD80rs (close to the limit) back end stepped out going up a banking corner.Still Drives fine tho,just wasnt worth me repairing,So decide on getting a 182 but in Silver.
So i found one and got up early on a Sat morning to head to south wales.
So this one is on 53k 2 owners & one of the very last ones & standard,previous owner also has a lovely Mars Red V6.
So plan is to get all the good bits off the cup & transfer onto the 182 then break or sell the cup as a whole car.
So i've had this car for nearly 4 years. I bought it from a member on here, Brad Harding, back in sep 2008.
1993 K plate Clio 1.8 16v with a Hybrid 2.0 bottom end.
This project has taken a long time (and still isn't finished! lol) owing largely to the fact that I have two small children, a wife that will be ill for the rest of her life and two businesses. Basically, I don't get much time! But this car is my baby and I don't care if it takes another 4 years, as long as its done properly.
I first saw the car on here way before that and as soon as I did, I sent him a pm stating that i'd buy it as soon as he was going to sell it. Two years on, he pm'ed me and I jumped in my wifes car with my dad and was off to Leicester as fast as possible...
Now, whilst it was a nice looking car, I can honestly say I bought this thing with rose tinted glasses.
