Thats right, spent Sunday giving my 172 its final clean before we part company on Saturday, my plates are ready to come off and its all clean and shiny. Gonna miss that car it was great fun (when it worked) and the new owner is family so I will still get to see it (drive it) on the odd occasion.
Ive had this about 6 months and due to changing my car I need to get rid of it. I fitted it where the original renault 6disc changer fits under passenger seat.
This is in perfect condition and still boxed.
Also have a Sony MD headunit AND Connects2UK adapter to allow the use of the remote...
Has anyone had a clutch replaced on warranty?
Had my car serviced at R-Sport last week and he said that the clutch judder I was having was probably a fault with the unit and if so would be replaced on warranty.
Unfortunately I went to a VX meet at the weekend and the clutch died on me so is...
Drove my car to the garage last night to get some fuel and when I got there I noticed I didnt have a rear bump strip (see pic).
Im pretty sure it was there when I left the house - do these things fall off or has someone...
I need to top up my oil before some trackdays but when i try to open the bonnect it wont :( pull the a handle and nothing happens. If it try to force the bonnet it wont work but when i push down i hear a click so pulling the handle does do something.
Worked okay on Saturday and not driven the...
Renault London West quoted me £325 for a 24K service on a 172. Hahahahahahaha
Sorry, I cant stop laughing. The 24K is the same as the 12K (according to handbook) and should be around the price of £160-£180 !!!
Ive been using Elephant for the last few years as they have been very good, but gave First Alternative a go (the sister company to the annoying esure - who wont insure me due to the 172) and they were £150 cheaper than Elephant - woohoo !
Well thats where my money for my new xbox has now come...
Just wondering as I think it is silver (like 172s) and was wondering why it was not colour coded like the Cup - think it looks pretty sweet in blue.
Seeing as the strips on the dash are colour coded - seems a simple thing to do?
Ok, after getting home last night I decided to see how far and how much.
My computer recorded a total of 1245 miles (from home) and I used 42.3 gallons of fuel (about 192 litres !!!)
Was definitely worth it !!!
Ok, I need some new tyres and probably get Toyos as they are pretty cheap (want to replace all 4) but I need to find somewhere (West London) to swap the tyres over for me. What kind of price am I looking at? Local Kwik-Fit said £10 per tyre and that includes balancing and valves.
Ok, it looks like my water bottle is leaking as everything I get into the car its empty, I believe this is a common problem and will be replaced under warranty? Does anyone know where the actual leak will be so I can take a look myself? Thx
Recently my 172 brakes have made a kind of scraping noise when appiled (even carefully) which Im assuming isnt right? I thought the mk2 had a dash light to indicate when pads need replacing etc?
Any thoughts on why this noise is happening? Cars done 17,500 miles.
Ok, driving back from Stafford yesterday my SERV light was on contant, I assumed it was just a warning to say my car is due a service (it isnt, was service 6 months / 6K miles ago)
Reading the handbook afterwards it says "If it lights up when the vehicle is being driven, it is advisable to stop...
Ok, more and more Im getting tempted to swap the 172 for a nice shiny new V6 255 however the price different between the two (12K?) seems sooo much considering it doesnt seem that much different.
What do you think, is the V6 that much better than a 172?
Also, Ive heard the "friends & family"...
Ok, as a few of you have been looking at tyres recently and Ill need some new boots soon I had a quick scan of the top 4 recommendations, heres the outcome...
These are 195/45/16 V-rated...
Lately Ive noticed that when Im accelerating hard and change from 4th to 5th I sometimes get a kind of squelching noise. Its doesnt stop me getting fifth at all and its a crunching sound.
Wondering what this is and whether I should get it looked at? Only does it 4-5th and not all the time...
I want to replace all the speakers in my car and was thinking of possibly genesis components at the front and just coax ones at the rear.
Dont want a sub or amp so is this a good idea?
Where can I purchase genesis online?
Other suggestions welcome...
Ok, think one of the factory speakers in my car is buzzing so I want to replace it. I thought about replacing the rears (are there some in the back side panels as well as the shelf??) and if so what should I swap them for? Would like a straight swap, no wiring etc etc and ones that fit into...
