ordered new centre caps for the turinis yesterday through Renault Wolverhampton.

they just called me on my lunch to advise they are on back order and have had to order them direct from france so will be delayed slightly. surprised at that given the price of the bloody things!

Today was wheel refurb day. Was getting dark when I got back so pics are not the best but I'm delighted with the finish. Has really freshened the car up. Waiting on the new centre caps from Renault

Small update. Centre caps finally arrived from back order in France. Should finish off the wheels.

As my standard rear exhaust mount is shagged I came across somebody selling updated mounts from their 182 they were breaking. Will sell the other one so basically this cost me nothing.

Took the cup out the garage this weekend and been giving it a run out seeing as the weather was decent. Took some beading shots this morning. Machine polishing and sealing the paint made such a difference to this car.

Immaculate mate. Noticed the same with my Cup a few days back, a good polishing really transforms the look of these cars!
Have you fitted the induction kit yet ? The noise is properly addictive

What a difference in noise! Sounds angry under full throttle. Love it.

Want to swap for a FF 182 I miss this so much I’ve had a lot of cars but regret selling this one the most. I’m back in a clio but it’ll never compare. So many memories in URC too

I feel your pain. This car has got under my skin and I love taking it out for a drive. I don't see me selling it, but you would be the first to know if it ever happens. @mharvey

I had an KTR induction kit in exactly that blue and I used to accelerate like a t**t everywhere as I just loved the angry bark it used to make with that kit on. Miss that noise.

Bilsteins were fitted by rentec in Edinburgh yesterday along with camber bolts and fully aligned and set up for fast road use . The handling is now fantastic, I was giggling like a child when I took it out for a blast last night as I threw it round corners and roundabouts, so happy with them. Rears are adjusted as low as adjusters will allow. But TBH whilst a bit lower would be nice it's function I'm more interested in so I'm delighted. They also fitted my poly rear exhaust mount and a new hazard switch as it decided to put my hazards on while I was driving it and wouldn't turn off. Sorted now. Next up I'm going for a oms rear anti roll bar and too mounts with brace.

Also had a nose round this in their workshop. Turbo conversion and running in super lap Scotland starting this Sunday. Looked epic.

I'm guessing the rear springs may well settle a bit? Either way I'm delighted with them.

Got in touch with a pdr guy today for my dad as his car has a nasty door ding thanks to some arsehole in a car park so I'm going to get him to sort a few little dings on the cup as well which are annoying me. He's coming on Saturday.

On my PH1 I had the rear adjusters set at there lowest, they can be removed but it will sit far to low for a road car.

Yes mate I agree. Bought them for the handling not the looks or I would of bought some cheap ktec jobs.
