    Phase 1 Clio 172 - Worth it?

    Hey guys, new to the forum. There's a Phase 1 Clio for sale on the interwebs for £5,700. Looks clean, 85k miles, almost original. Is it worth the high price tag? Or am I dreaming?

    Steering 'notchy' turning right only

    Hello! My 172 cup steering has become 'notchy' with intermittent resistance turning right. Left is absolutely fine. It feels very odd. I've recently had the gearbox out, so had the subframe dropped down. My uninformed guess is that the rack might be damaged. Anyone else experienced anything...
