It’s a nice colour when polished, hides the grime unlike my previous BG!
No plans for a cage, in all honesty the last thing I want to do at the moment is gear it towards track, as it’s mostly used as a weekend car/daily back up a fast road set up suits me. ?
HT leads went bad so changed and serviced the car with NGK laser iridium plugs, Elf oil and oem Renault filter 4th service with this set up, it’s only been 4,500ish (6-7months) since the last oil change but for £35 odd seems worth it to me.
Misfire troubles continue, but will hopefully...
Ht lead failed last week so replaced with genuine part, still wasn’t right so plugged it into a snapon reader which showed no faults (also no lights on dash) but the pre cat o2 sensor was going wild ranging from 50 to 750 whereas the postcat was only varying by ten points. Changed o2 sensor and...
Changed the leads and it fixed it. Went to Euro in the end £21 with a discount was couldn’t be bothered to order one it was bugging me! Also stripped and painted the inlet and fuel rail guard to kill time.
Have a reconditioned gearbox in the garage ready to go in but was holding back because i’d like to know what everyone’s experiences are with lightened flywheels? To me it makes sense to do it while everything’s out.
Where’s the best place to pick one up? Not overly interested in...
Interesting point the attached photo was taken at caffeine and machine (anyone who hasn’t been should go it’s ace). The owner of the EP3 to my left is actually a previous owner of my car and we met by chance, small world.
After buying my second 182 2 and a bit years ago i thought i’d finally start a project thread.
My first 182 was a BG FF with 34k purchased back in 2015. Loved it but had to sell up when I went to uni.
Current car is a Titanium 182 with 104k been a journey to say the least.
Update - Topmounts fitted the bearing where ruined so i’m glad they were changed!
Also took the opportunity to for a set of K-tec coilovers i purchased recently. Cars seems to drive nice but will need re-setting up. Is it worth paying to have a full geo set up?
Purchased a set of KTR coilovers and i’ll be looking to change my top mounts at the same time (makes sense really). Question is do I go for solid top mounts or another variant?
Driving is purely road and no track work.
Thoughts/recommendations welcome! ?
Had a run out this today with the Mrs as we both enjoyed it when we went with Worcester car club a few months ago.
Some great stuff there would highly recommend the drive out.
Funnily enough also met a previous owner of my car who followed me in in his EP3. - Small world.
I’m going to pussy out and get someone to do it for me next week been quoted £200 so isn’t the end of the world..
just bought a powerflex dogbone from a member on here, new clutch kit from Valeo and MTL box oil as per @NorthloopCup ’s recommendation will be looking forward to seeing how it...
