Ahhhhh..... Life of a 182 owner...



Well.... Had my car just shy of 12 months now, a 2004 Arctic 182.

Now to be honest, Im quite a sensible, conservative and courteous driver, and never really walloped my 182, in fact never wallop any of my cars.

But today...

I'd forgotten all that the 182 is... Its a lovley day here in Leicester, So I decided to go for a drive out as im not at work.

found some nice empty country lanes and give it a good six of the best trousers down style driving! and wow.... love it! all over again! fun really does begin at 5000!!! and as for the bends.... RAAA!! great fun!!

anyway.... just had to share as i'm still grinning!!!

oh and PS....

The 182 makes me smile simply because it's so random in terms of how it goes. Some mornings it's like a grumpy old b*****d that doesn't want to move and then on others, it's like its on 199-octane juice and just sticks to the road like sh1t-to-a-blanket.

I love it for that - a great car. :cool:

Im quite sensible and usually drive the car normally but id say it wouldnt be worth having the 182 if i wasnt willing to let it see the full rev range every so often.......Its just hit 18k and i get the feeling its quicker than its getting even better!!!

Good cars these Clios....reasonably economical and quiet cruising but so much fun when you get your boot in:D

You should get your car remapped and with the rev limited raised you will never want to be under 5000rpm again.........

Everyone should take their rs's to at leat a track day and give it the beans.
 
I aim to hit the rev limiter everytime I drive my Trophy. I want to make sure the people behind get a good noseful of unburned fuel going through my exhaust as I brake down for corners!!! :D
