    Matt's (2nd) Racing Blue 182 thread.

    Hi guys, well after saying I would never return to Clio ownership, I went and bought another (my 2nd) Racing Blue and 3rd Clio 182 to-date.

    Placed the deposit down this weekend and hope to pick it up as soon as our current car gets in and out of the bodyshop.

    The car has a full Renault service history including belts, with a brand new Miltek cat back exhaust and great tires front and rear.

    Condition is spot on, just a small chip/dent on the bonnet which should come out fairly easy I would have thought.

    Plans:

    Well the last one I had was staying standard, which lasted about 2 minutes, so this one I wont be making any promises.

    Needs a splitter and will order some Mtec bulbs to replace the standard ones, silvervisions etc etc

    A few grainy iPhone pictures.

    Glad you managed to find one dude! Looks spot on. Get it looking like your old one and you're onto a winner!

    This one won't be having white turinis, either silver cup wheels or some 2118's

    Cheers Mike. It was either a ropey FF or a mint cup, so went for the cup.

    Might swap the seats for FF ones, and have my eye on a OMP wheel

    I wondered when I would be seeing a thread about you buying yet another 182... you just can't stay away!

    Looking good mate! You going to get xenons and FF seats?

    Just cant resist mate!

    I always missed my old RB so just had to get another.

    Might go for the FF seats, but I dont think Ill be getting xenons.

    The Mtec bulbs are really good and I found the xenons on my last ones to be quite tempermental...

    A Red 1.4 9N.

    It's a great car to be fair. Comfy, nice interior. However it has the handling characteristics of a canoe. It was always going to be a cheap temporary car while I bought my house, however the itch has returned much sooner than I thought I could last!

    Back in a clio. Looks nice, shame it's a cup but hey ho, I'd rather have to physically spec it back up myself and have a sound car than a well spec'd dog.

    Will be keeping an eye on this.

    I sort of agree, the mtec bulbs improve the light situation, and any non homosexual would be sticking trend lines in too so it wouldn't really matter

    Exactly. 182 FF seats are ten-penny, well looked after Clios are not.

    This is the 3rd time the "itch" has returned for me!
