    Optimal revs for 172 MK2

    Use the gear change light to guide you when to change up, in all gears and as long as the engine is nicely warmed up it will love it. I found that my old car performed at its best when driven for about an hour as per the above. Be brave - it can take it!

    Yep, although I had the discs as well - I dont know if that makes any difference.

    Hill Power - ECU and Silicone hose kit!

    I think one benefit of the ECU is the incresed rev limit, which lets you do about 100 in 3rd and I understand, about 125 in 4th so I would imagine in a 0 - 100 dash youre saving 1 gear change... The idle was fine after a few minutes first thing - I had the inlet manifold too. [Edited by ak_uk...

    Opinions on powerflow exhausts...

    Powerflow, sound fab but the quality isnt what I would expect - I had two mid-silencers go in about 2 years. The lifetime warranty appears to be only from the supplying dealer and is dependent on an annual inspection - from that same dealer.

    Secondhand 172 - common faults

    Faults I had on my mk2, now no longer with me: Airbag light - connection under passenger seat Clunking from front suspension - strut top modification needed but not a guaranteed fix, I didnt bother and it seemed to make no difference to the handling. Clunking engaging 1st gear - engine...

    Good day to all - Let’s get to the point

    30000 miles in a mk2 172 and it despite a few niggles, it was definitely worth it. Im sure the 182 is the same.

    RSport ECU in standard 172

    I think it was worth it in my setup but I dont know what it would be like on its own. The increased in gear top speeds are useful on occasion tho when you need to hang around in one with a few revs available.

    Diesel Engines

    Can anyone tell me if there is any physical difference between the 65BHP and 82BHP clio diesel engine - or is it the ECU that gives it the hike? Thanks.

    RSport ECU in standard 172

    Got a group N ECU (is this an R-sport one?:confused:) in a mk2 172 (without EBD and TC) from HP - works no problems.

    feck £605 service sob sob

    I havent tried it but there is a letter somewhere on here that states that if you have certain documents like the original bill of sale etc., you are entitled to the 3 year warranty - you just have to show them to the dealer. If it doesnt work choose a good independent - that price for the...

    my 182 driving me mad

    You could try a independent (qualified) inspection of the car without mentioning the problems you are facing, so you wouldnt prejudice it. I dont think they are extortionate and it will be a report in writing which would help your case (if it needed to be made). If youve got car/home insurance...

    Easter Holiday 2004 - Thank you

    As above really, thanks to those that did the hard work of organising the trip - special thanks to Yozza, Tony and Neil for all those mad bursts. Got back last night @ 3am. It was the most fun I have had driving ever - hail the Highlands!:cool:

    Not sure about 182s but for 172s I understood that full UK spec included the CAT1 alarm upgrade and locking wheel nuts...- otherwise its only technically got a CAT2 immobiliser as standard - check out the thatcham site.. I had a CAT 1 upgrade fitted to my car and all it added was the interior...
