FF Inferno 182



Hey,

Been wanting rid of my Seat Leon for some time now but couldn't resist getting myself a 182 after Jim (leeds_182) let me take his 172 cup for a drive the other night.

Been wanting a 182 purely for the twin exhaust and wanting climate etc, seems that inferno isn't a colour that you come across daily on Clio's.

After Jim took me for a spin and was dropping me back off at home literally at the end of the street where my girlfriend lives was an Inferno up for sale! It had to be fate!

Anyway after knocking £400 off the asking price I should be picking this up sometime during the week

It is completely standard apart from a Scorpion SRN019 cat-back with decat, sounds lovely and luckily the bloke has decided to keep the original cat too!

Plans are to have the cambelt and dephaser replaced as it is on the noisy side and for peace of mind that the belts have been done by someone reputable. Apart from that just enjoy it and tweak when necessary!

Thanks for looking!
 
Re: First 182 - Inferno with Cup Suspension

Well I picked the car up and stuck £50 of tesco's finest 99 and been out for a drive in it tonight.

Absolutely love the car and can see me having this for a while compared to all my previous cars.

Anyway here are some photos I took of the car tonight...

I had bought a shortened aerial about 12months ago for my Leon but it killed the radio reception and coincidentally works fine on the Clio :)

​Got the tail pipes on the scorpion cleaned up this morning, can't stand having a dirty exhaust!

Exhaust looks much better! I'm getting my AB 182 on Friday, and the exhaust looks in a similar state. What did you use to clean her up? Anything specific or just good 'ol elbow grease?
 
Re: First 182 - Inferno with Cup Suspension

Just used autosol and plenty of elbow grease. Best way I found was put some on a rag and dab it on the exhaust, softens it up a bit if you give it a couple of minutes.

Talking about exhaust, keeps blowing on the decat to centre section joint and it just sounds so crap :(

Re: First 182 - Inferno with Cup Suspension

Brilliant thanks!

As for the blowing, check the joint - could just be it needs clamping properly or re-sealing. Fingers crossed.
 
Re: First 182 - Inferno with Cup Suspension

I took it to kwik fit and they put a new clamp on it and some fresh paste to seal it but they said the scorpion has a shallow flange thus not making a great seal but now it sounds like it has a 6" backbox lol

Re: First 182 - Inferno with Cup Suspension

Not exactly desirable haha! Maybe getting a new sleeve then to get a flush fit, coupled with the clamp and sealing paste? No clue how much that would set you back though!
 
Re: First 182 - Inferno with Cup Suspension

It has the cat flange style fitting on both the decat and centre section. Ill just see if kwik fit can give it another go and will ask nicely if they can fit my cat back on.

Id just stick the cat on mate. Im sure the 182 cat is not as restrictive as the 172 one (but I might be wrong).
 
Re: First 182 - Inferno with Cup Suspension

Well turns out the centre section has slipped out of the decat pipe thus causing noise. Looks like I'm having some fun tomorrow under the car!
 
Re: First 182 - Inferno with Cup Suspension

Got a few things on the way for the car, I have a polybushed dog bone mount and some powerflex exhaust mounts coming hopefully either today or tomorrow, an Alpine IDA-X001 headunit and next saturday the car is booked in at exhausts uk for a new centre section to quieten the noisey Scorpion system down a bit!
 
Re: First 182 - Inferno with Cup Suspension

Well out of all the things I've bought this week including a 3/4 front plate, the only thing that has turned up was my eBay bargain

I need to buy a genuine cage, at the moment it's in an autoleads cage with a few of the tabs holding it steady.

But for £46 I can't complain lol
 
Re: First 182 - Inferno with Cup Suspension

Loads of goodies came this morning

Polybushed dog bone mount, 2 polybush exhaust mounts and an LED numberplate bulb

As usual when I do work on my car I try to take photos but end up forgetting lol

I managed to solve my noisy wiper problem which cropped up when it started raining on Thursday. I thought it was a knackered motor or seized linkage.

Turned out to be that the motor is meant to sit on the stud, when the wipers were turned on the motor would move slightly and rub on the stud.

Got the dog bone mount fitted too which has improved throttle response without adding too much vibration which they are known for doing

Re: First 182 - Inferno with Cup Suspension

Looks like a nice example, whats mileage, service history and cost if you don't mind me asking..
 
Re: First 182 - Inferno with Cup Suspension

Mileage is on 86k, full service history but dephaser needs replacing and I paid £1900 for it. Needs a few things doing but nothing out of the ordinary it seems, exhaust mounts etc

Looks a nice example for that money especially.. Ive seen a few but all closer to 3k.. Great Colour
 
Re: First 182 - Inferno with Cup Suspension

I nearly went to view one in south yorkshire for £3300 but it had been stood for 2 years which put me off a bit, plus it was a cup and I wanted xenons etc.

Think it will be a keeper this though, as long as I don't get stuck in traffic jams and average 25mpg lol

Re: First 182 - Inferno with Cup Suspension

Nice colour mate ;)!! Glad your enjoying it, best car ive bought so far! Unfortunately they do seem to have the habit of making you want more and you buy lots of little extra bits ha ha!! mine started with a 3/4 number plate as well funnily enough and its just snowballed since ha ha!
 
Re: First 182 - Inferno with Cup Suspension

Thanks mate, have you a project thread for yours?

I've also got a 3/4 plate coming, just need to get the V5 through the post so I can get my private plate put on the Clio.

Re: First 182 - Inferno with Cup Suspension

Nah I always forget to take photos lol. Got loads from when I first got it, might take some now at half way point then some when I'm finished! You dont need your V5 if you order them online mate, I didn't!
