My exhaust has just started blowing and my car now sounds like every chav's corsa.
Would anyone recommend any oem style backboxes other than a Genuine Renault one? I know stainless is the way to go but it's just the backbox and I don't want to spend several hundred £ on the car at the moment.
If anyone's after an R26 and notices that Arnold Clark have the one above in a Glasgow dealership then here's some feedback on it, I test drove the car today.
First thing you'll notice is that it's got a fair amount of deep scratches and is peppered with stone chips in front of the rear wheel...
I've searched through 8 years of posts and can't find anything conclusive so starting a thread.
I recently had my oem mk2 ph2 172 steering wheel replaced with a re-trimmed oem wheel, on collecting the car from the local so called 'specialist' the airbag and serv lights were on.
I'm a bit of a newb with home entertainment stuff.
My setup is:
Upscaling DVD player
I use a Logitech Harmony control.
I don't have a working hifi and was thinking of getting some sort of tablet pc and speakers in order to play a stream from say spotify or...
I'm having to persuade the car to start in the mornings, it's been sub-zero for about 3 weeks now pretty much which has to have something to do with it.
Basically I turn the key to start the car and the starter motor turns fine, no issues with the battery. But I have to pump the accelerator a...
I visited Williams F1 near Didcot in Oxfordshire yesterday for the Brazilian Grand Prix.
Arrived around 1pm, cracking buffet lunch, wander around the largest private collection of F1 cars in the world, drove a simulator, Jackie Stewart called us around 2.15pm to discuss the build up to the...
Well I was looking through some pics and realised that my time on CS is captured in pictures:
June 2004 my nice new 182 when I commuted 600+ miles per week:
A CS meet at Crail in 05, back when Ali and Alan had 1.2's and Ally had his Monaco and Rufus had his cup:

I've just bought a Fuji Finepix s1900 super zoom camera to see how I take to photography, didn't want to go all out and get an expensive DSLR just yet.
So far I'm impressed it's got manual settings to get the hang of and I've discovered I can get filters / wide angle lenses etc for it too.
Finally getting round to selling it, had a lot on with my new job etc but want it gone before winter.
Needs MOTd and taxed, I'll take care of that.
Will be giving it a full detail when I get back from the London office next weekend.
Had some free tickets so ventured up to see BTCC for the first time, was a good day out. Had to leave before the 3rd touring car race but was still good.
Had a bit of banter with Plato as we bumped into him on our way to the car, will get that pic later!
Well I've had the 172 about 18 months now I think and living in a flat it suffers a bit of handwashing neglect. The koni's and eibachs have been on for about 11 months now and having fitted new tyres it was time to sort the camber out.
Today it was treated to 2 new track rods which has...
Had two new tyres fitted last week and supposedly balanced. They're Hankook Ventus' which I already have and rate.
A couple of days later I was on the motorway and there was a lot of vibration. So I took the car to a local tyre fitter for a balance. They told me they were a far bit out and had...
Some of you may remember I did a 3 day roadtrip a couple of years back before selling my 182: http://www.cliosport.net/forum/showthread.php?t=263131
I had the last week off work but last minute had to head to Doncaster. So that left 3 days instead of 5. Took Ally's 3.0 Z4 and split fuel costs...
