    What have you guys beat in your clios

    Don't forget the DSG fartbox with the stomp & go driving mentality saving the driver any third pedal and manual change issues. Driven the neighbours Polo GTi and although it felt like you'd never see double-figures in MPG when the gearbox is set to Sport - in most scenarios I bet it would beat...

    Still wish I'd ordered mine in PB.... ☺️ It's a gorgeous colour - nice purchase, sir!

    Oldest game you still play?

    Still a very active community from what I can gather, which is massively impressive for a game that's heading towards being 30 years old. I think they just got a lot of simple ideas nailed from the get-go. The original TT was a little bit silly in that you could cut off the AI player(s) in...

    Oldest game you still play?

    Noticed that OpenTTD (Transport Tycoon Deluxe) has now been added to Steam. Brings back many memories from uni days, that. :)

    New owner 182 RB RS👌

    RB is a fantastic colour when cleaned and in the sun. Mind you, so is black gold..... then you look at it and it's dirty again. :P

    Help help help help

    If its any consolation - the local Renault dealership to me replaced the alternator three times when my OEM item failed. They even had the nerve to try and charge me the additional labour for each swap-out. When eventually they got it right - the unit only lasted two years before failing again...

    Will I destroy my lovely Clio Cup ????

    That was the main thinking behind my rebuild. I wanted the current driveability - but with that performance dial just turned up slightly. It's my daily and I didn't want to run the risk of compromising what the Clio had been about all these years. Sure, there are many more powerful small...

    3D Printed 1*2 Cupholder

    Not quite the cup holder - but I'd like a slightly different moulding to the ash-tray base. I've got an OBD-2 Bluetooth adapter permanently plugged in there and the ash-tray doesn't fit correctly on top. If I could have the ash-tray base reprinted with about an inch less depth - it would slot in...

    Bodywork recommendations - North West?

    With working on Shadsworth (even though I haven't been in the office itself for a year!) - that might be a good shout - thanks.

    The Power PC Thread [f*ck off consoles]

    One of my work colleagues managed to nab two Founders Edition RTX3080 cards pretty much on release day. Offered one to me at the price that he paid (£680) which I politely refused at the time. Yeah..... in hindsight, that was a mistake!

    The Power PC Thread [f*ck off consoles]

    It really is. I saw my EVGA 1080 on eBay with its current bid at about £50 less than what it cost me new over five years ago. Insane.

    Evo IX RS on Its way

    Genuinely would be interested in what my rust-munched VI would have been worth now, if I'd tucked it away?

    Rust rear wheel arch

    Don’t be alarmed with rust in the petrol filler cap area on your search for another 172/182. It’s a really common area to get it as well.
