probably a good idea, mine is 100% standard with 50k but its needing an exhaust as its already on its 3rd standard one and after getting a quote a few weeks ago I'm really torn what to do with it!!! - my mrs will literally kill me and burry me and my Trophy, shes still a bit raw after I announced the R27 lolIm looking at a cartoon right now for mine and thinking about putting not back to standard with all the parts i have.
Didnt you sell one because you didnt want to put miles on it...?Seems crazy to own a trophy and not enjoy it for what it is rather that store it away with minimal use for 10 years to 'mayby' make a measly £5-6k in that time.Yeah that type of moneys alot but not compared to 10 years use and having fun with the car.Lifes too short !
Its this one mate, its currently in with Andyrg at clioturbo.co.uk having the engine stripped to see if theres any damage as I suffered an oil leak when the cam seal popped out, and the box is being sent off to agency transitions for a refurb as I had a crunch going from 2nd to 3rd at high rpm shifting fast, this is costing me £1400+ to repair so its perfect for me to keep or to sadly sell on to a new home...Maybe, if the 182 is a girly colour.
I do like the disclaimer on the vee.V6 255 will be the classic. The most extreme version of a clio that you could get.
The trophy is still just a 182, but with trick suspension. Suspension which makes it very good, but needs refurbishing on a regular basis at great cost.
Great cars, but they aren't going to make you a fortune.
I have to admit I completely agree.I just don't see it I'm afraid. They simply were not different enough from the standard car.
I reckon a few standard ones will be worth a few quid but not crazy values.
