Artic Clio 182FF With Factory Fitted Recaros

Some of you may have seen that I have recently sold my mint mondial blue 172 Cup and not long after that my iceberg 172 Cup. The reason being that I was offered back this 182FF in artic blue that I sold to a good friend of mine a year ago.

It is a 2005 Clio 182 in artic blue(my favourite colour) with the spoiler pack and suspension pack. It also has the optional factory fitted Recaros, so cloth rear seats and door cards like the Trophy. I have the original sales invoice with the options selected.

The car has only covered 53k! It still has the original Cup suspension fitted. The Recaro seats are mint. The whole car is pretty mint. Belts and dephaser were done a couple of years ago. The only modifications are a sports cat and Janspeed stainless exhaust system.

I don't have too many plans for it. Change the side light bulbs for LED ones to match the xenons, it already has silver vision indicator bulbs, new rear numberplate light, 3/4 front plate and new rear plate, genuine mats, non sticky interior trim and a retrimmed steering wheel. I have already fitted my genuine carbon fibre dash strips.

I have removed the side skirts and door strips as with all my Clios and given the car a good clean today. The wheels have been refurbished and have matching Michelin Pilot Sport 3's fitted. The headlights have also been refurbished and coated with UV lacquered. I will update with some further pictures once its all back together.

I should hopefully be keeping this one, but I have said that before! I have bought another Megane RS 250 too and will do a thread on that as well. Anyway here are a few pictures when I first got it back and after a clean today.

Been a bit slow with updates! Car is almost back together. New rear numberplate light, new numberplates, genuine mats and a good clean with everything removed. I have also done some preventative maintenance on the fuel cap area to keep it all good.

Mot is booked for Thursday and then it will be going up for sale. It is one of, if not the lowest mileage original 182FF for sale across all the sales platforms. Especially with factory fitted Recaros. I will put an advert up on here first before it goes on ebay and pistonheads.

Straight through Mot today with no advisories. Depending on the weather this weekend I will get some decent photos. The Recaros are in amazing condition. Need to work out what it's worth!
