Renault garages in Glasgow are around £56 an hour labour so thats mental expensive!
I got a MK2 RS after and then traided that for the Exclusive i now have. I paid over odds for it from a dealer but it was low miles. It's now on 47000m.
I was even thinking of taking it to K-Tec to sort out but i'm not sure if they do immobilisers.
year of my birth.
If you want rare - get a Sunflower !
Didn't have the sill plates when I bought it so not sure
As there seems to be alot of chat about these cars at the moment, it got me thinking about some un-answered questions about them.
We all 'know' that 172 were to be brought into the UK, but did the order books actually reach 172 as they were only available (at least originally) by special order only. Scarab Green isn't a colour that appears on the list of product numbers by Renault Sport either, so did the UK receive all 172?
Perhaps we could get a list or register going of plaque numbers and maybe reg no's to see how far we get as to the likely amount we have here.
Spec. from new if anyone isn't sure;
Scarab Green paint (used previously only on high spec Espace).
Dune grey full leather, inc door cards and steering wheel.
Cabasse CD head unit in place of the standard cassette, as well as the standard multi changer.
Individually numbered door cill plaque.
Pale grey floor mats.
Limited to 172 models into the UK.
My old one..
no 022 ( I'll leave it to Ady to put up reg no. as current owner if he wishes)
Im sure there was an 02 plate one that was No 150 ish think it was an ex Renault car (i was looking to buy it a while ago) so I wouldnt of thought they made the full 172
Slightly off topic but haven't they cut the R26.R production run short too?
no 011 = drhowser's mate
no 022 = Guillaume
no 017 = manney
no 077 = JPandDeb
no 040 = DAMO 40/172
no 082 = moogster 1
no 093 = scarab172
no 112 = rapidfire
no 115 = potter88's mate
no 116 = Nomad
no 131 = hulkster
no 134 = BUXZ777
The list as I see it so far..
Any mods want to merge the threads and make it a sticky please? Would stand more of a chance of getting some numbers on the list!.. Pretty please..
no1 is in teh for sale section.. actually I removed it, owned by someone called Scotty IIRC
I think this is a really good idea.
Due to the low numbers involved, it's probably the only opportunity we have to make a difinitive list of a particular Clio run and inspite of them being a bit marmite, they are interesting I think.
I'd personally like to own one, but if I did, I know I'd not want to sell it and four cars on the drive is a no-no.
I would imagine that Reno would shaft you if you needed replacement seats, interior parts and sill plates.
