KU54 - RB 182



  M135i and the shed
Anyone know any history on an RB182 (both cup packs) from Northwich/Cheshire area, reg KU54 NTG.

My friend has just taken the plunge and looking to find it's history and whether the previous owners are on here.

Cheers in advance. :)

I have a RB182 that's had its belts done by you guys before I bought it, that was based in Northwich too so maybe your thinking of this one? I will be needing a service soon ;)

Was indeed my sisters. Bought from DS cars in Litchfield

Steve came with us to view it, he's serviced it and belted it :) She had it for two years or so, then was going to sell it, but her boyfriend had it instead. He ran it for around 6 months then iirc chopped it in for a RS Twingo at Crewe...? Them pics were after I PC'd it ready for sale. Good bus, and as you can see was totally stock. that must have been around two years ago?
 
  M135i and the shed
Still stock now as far as I can tell. Purchased from a private seller in Northwich and will be staying around the area.

He says all services are either main dealer or Birchdown apart from one but I guess that was a minor service by the sounds of it.

Wow what a lovely car that is!!!

;)

Poobah your a good lad doing some research! Thanks again for all of your help and advice.

Just getting to grips with the forum so will no doubt be pestering with questions shortly!

The car is still completely standard and in mint condition! Lots of stamps in the book too!

Thank you g@z's sister and boyf for looking after it, I can promise it's gone to a good home :eek:

Nice one fella :)

Any questions dont hesitate to drop me a PM if need be

Remember, you MUST take it to Birchdown for any 'proper' work, not them other chancers in the Northwest, i'm sure Poobah will fill you in ;)

I've already directed Rick to the Birchdown boys previously. :)

Given the cars location I had a horrible feeling it'd be plagued with NWP stamps so was greatly relieved to hear it was Birchdown approved! :D

Winner! You must have some receipts from us? (birchdown) if not i will send you some!

Thanks SBV there's a few receipts and a fair few stamps too! I'll have a proper search through the info tomorrow and let you know if that's ok. What a friendly bunch :)

All checks out this end! Good work!! It's amazing what you can find out on here!

My only concern with the car is the last service? This was done at Owen and Pierce garages ltd?
I assume this isn't a Renault specialist? It's been stamped at 59,472 and says "new cam kit"

However the accessories, belt and pulleys sheet along with the timing belt and pulleys sheet haven't been stamped.

Is it worth me having all this checked out?

Don't know enough about the Clio service schedules to comment Rick, but with any newly purchased Renaultsport with a question mark in the service history I reckon it's worth taking it down to Birchdown just give it a health check to be safe. :)

There is no invoice, there's an mot from the same garage though at the same time so I'll give them a ring tomorrow and see if there's anything on their system. Thanks again for your help! People on here are really friendly :)

I just got exited that the car looked amazing and it had lots of stamps, I hope it's been done properly.

I might have to bring it in for a check up one weekend soon if you can fit me in :)

To be fair Rick, it's probably fine (try not to worry! :D ) but i reckon it's worth the peace of mind of having Birchdown give it a check over as there's alot of places that do the cambelt without the proper cam-locking tools and end up with the timing being all arse-about-face.
