My first ever 172. I sold it nearly three years ago to a member off here but tonight after a few emails back and forth, I bought it back. After owning about 9 172's in the middle, this is by far the best Renaultsport I have ever owned!!! I can't get pics now obviously as its nearly 1am and dark.... And i'm knackered!!

This is how it looked when I sold it

There will be no sale of turinis!

I sold it to MrMahoosive on here. He's kept it mint to be fair! Plus fitted coilovers/buckets etc. I kept it right uptogether before I sold it. Cambelt/auxbelt, smoothed bonnet, yadda yadda yadda, I've now Just a few niggly electrical bits to sort hopefully.

I'm so happy. I properly loved that car!!!

Got to be a great feeling buying an old car you loved and getting it back. Does it feel just as good as you remember?

9 172s inbetween?! Have you owned the most Renault Sports on here? And now 9 cars lol how do you choose what to drive?

I think he meant he had to drive 300 miles to get it.

Fpmsl at having 9 cars not tied up in the business ! :lolup:

I only really drive my work van. I work 7 days a week so I have no real use for any of my cars. I love cars though so I can't help it.

how does your wife put up with you? and she's pretty from what I remember, you must be hung! lol

Danileson, your a crazy man :cool: Does it still look the same as that pic ?

Cosmetically yeah. Although now its stripped with coilovers, buckets harnesses etc. Unsure of under the bonnet as I didn't even lift it up! Just whacked it on the trailer and dropped it off at the workshop.

Picking it up tomorrow so I'll get some pics up then. :D
