Replaced mine too mate, was very easy to do and i was very impressed with the results, i have the group n ecu which idle's a bit higher so i dont get the vibration through the car.

But do keep us posted on the engine mounts as renault ones are p
pi$$ poor

What do these do? any performance increase? How much are they?

tightens up the mounting of the engine. less engine slop, less movement in the stick. most report a slight increase in vibration through the cabin due to them been harder bushings.. theyre polyeurethene (sp?)

Thread revival for a vital question!!!! My bottom mounting has gone and I was going to change tomorrow. If this'll fit then I'll order one of thes and wait instead. It says on the site that they only fit clios with a twisted mounting. It's 10:20pm and I'm not crawling under the car, anyone know if a mk1 172 has the twisted mounting? Otherwise I've got to order a standard one first thing tomorrow AM. Thanking you oh knowlegable clio people............

s**t. I'm going to have to pay more for a standard (copy) piece then? Was looking forward to it feeling a bit tighter like I've been reading about. Would be nice to get a slightly quicker response and reduce the kick when lifting off the throttle. I don't remember it being twisted when I've been under there before. Doubt anyone's going to make an uprated bush for a mk1 now as there aren't many about compared to mk2 :S

you should be able to put a ph2 mount on it? my 1.2 16v never had the twisted mount, but i got a mk2 172 mount and it fits straight on, well did untill i hit a bump in the ground on a farm road and caught the mount and ripped it clean out teh gearbox, nasty
