    ABS & SERV Light

    Morning All, This may have been discussed before but I'm kinda stumped with this one. About 2 weeks ago I had new pads and discs fitted to the rear of my ph1 172. Recently the ABS and SERV light has been on. The fault first of all pointed to the O/S/R ABS ring which I changed again as I thought...

    Catostrophic Misfire fault - Solutions please

    Anyone else had this problem? My ph1 172 has the EML light displayed. Is showing catastrophic misfire as the diagnostic fault but is running spot on. Both lambda sensors have been replaced but the fault will not clear. Car isn't used daily but I haven't noticed it using more fuel than normal...

    Ph1 172 Flamer with New Paint!

    I finally decided to get the full front end of the flamer re painted due to the amount of stone chips. The car always looked ok in photographs but as you will se in the close up "before" shots it looked as if someone had pebble dashed the front bumper! Very pleased with the results, I feel it...

    * GHM White Leon (Old Arctic 182?)

    In Dumbarton about half an hour ago. I'm sure the registration used to be on an Arctic 182? I was in a red ph1 Flamer.

    Not A Sport, But Everyone Likes A Bargain!

    Last weekend I added the third Clio to my current "fleet". No real reason for buying this really apart from the price, but first the car.... Its a 1998 S 1.2 8v RN Grande. Two owners from new, just 40,000 miles on the clock, MOT'd and taxed until July 2014, original spare wheel and tools, few...

    New daily - Mk4 dCi

    Well I traded in my Megane for a new Clio dCi Dynamique S MediaNav in pearl black. I genuinely believe Renault have gone back to the whole character of the Clio, back in the Papa and Nicole days. Stylings a bit marmite for some but works for me :) Brilliant little cars and the kit level is...

    Electric Polisher Recommendations?

    Can anyone recommend a good electric polisher? Ideally one that is not an attachment for a drill. Not too bothered on cost, I'm a great believer in you get what you pay for. What do we all use then? Cheers, Al

    F1s back on for the winter but finally got round to getting my cup spoiler sprayed and fitted along with my new spray shack bullets. Then a well deserved clean! Apologies for the I-fail pictures.

    A Year of Ownership - Ph1 Content

    Roughly a year ago, I picked up my ph1 Flamer from Disley, Manchester so an excellent excuse for a good clean and some pics. The car has been great to have so far. It took me ages to man up and buy one but its turned out to be one of the best things I have bought. So far, apart from insurance...

    Last weekend, me and a few others off here took the trip North to the Applecross/Skye area of Scotland. We met in Fort William on the Friday evening with the rain coming in at full force giving the distinct impression that summer had finally arrived. We drove on the A87 North of Fort William to...

    2118s Fitted

    Removed my F1s for something called the summer, fancied a change so got myself a new set of anthracite Speedline 2118s with some new rubber and TPIs. Yes it could sit a tad lower and could do with front spacers but I'm really pleased with how they look. Apologies for the poor quality pictures...

    Ph1 172 Flamer - Subtle, Working Progress *PIC HEAVY*

    Done a few changes to the car and got some more things pending so thought I would start a wee progress thread so i can update it as and when. Picked her up on 30th June 2012 from Stockport, Cheshire with only 69,000 genuine miles, heaps of paperwork and a recent belt change and she didn't miss...

    My "New" 172 Ph1 Flamer

    Hi all, Picked this little beauty up yesterday from Stockport, drove brilliantly back to Glasgow. Big thanks to frazjam for driving my Megane back. She's fairly standard except a k-tec exhaust. F1s could do with a re-furb but paintwork is in quite good condition and got an extremely fair deal...

    My Megane Coupe dCi

    Picked this up just before Christmas. Love it so far - dCi 110 is not rapid but torquey - pulls well through the gears. Completely standard except for the optional 17" wheels, which fill the arches much better in my opinion. Let me know what you think!
