    Hey guys I am back with another car!
    Still have my other 2 which you can check the threads here:
    My first car clio mk2 (interesting read): http://cliosport.net/threads/my-cherry-red-1-2-mk2-ph2-clio-first-car.740304/
    My second car Golf Mk4 GTi (interesting also): http://cliosport.net/threads/my-mk4-golf-gti.790252/

    I have to finish the Golf and prepare the other clio (my first car) for sale. Will be advertised on here soon.
    Anyways in the mean time I'll leave this here and get back to it when I can.

    Looks nice! Oz F1s look awesome, had some on my inferno when I had it.

    Also it's a 182 with Cup packs otherwise know as 182FF no such things as a 182 cup FF

    Im absolutely gutted now ive seen this, do look after it! Oz f1s are the perfect wheel for these in my opinion, especially when lowered on the cooksports which it is. 15s make tyres so cheap aswell. Such upset :worried:

    First couple weeks of ownership and managed to cover a nice 600 miles so far.
    Getting to grips with the fuel not to bad if I must say, considering I now drive half the speed limit everywhere.
    [​IMG]

    Got round to stripping my first car to get the interior bits put into the 182 as I wasn't happy with the 182's interior. (dont have before picture :worried: )
    [​IMG]
    Now all fitted into the 182
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    You will notice some holes in the lower center console which was because of some horrible (yet functional) cup holders which were crudely put there.
    [​IMG]

    Like any french car its only a matter of time before the problems start lining up one by one.
    The first minor issue that needed to be addressed was the faulty brake light in the spoiler. Suspected corrosion and boy was there a lot.
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    Beyond saving as the track within the PCB was bubbling so only option was to order a new one.
    New one purchased and greased up before it goes in to make for easy removal for later and to reduce the scratching to the paint work.
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]
    New one fitted:
    [​IMG]

    Switched up the rear tail lights to FK Automotive ones might not be to everyones taste but I think it really looks the part when accompanied with an RS badge (which I have and will be on shortly).
    [​IMG]
    Nice and clean
    [​IMG]
    Not fitted properly but fitted to the car.
    [​IMG]

    Silvertec bulbs added
    [​IMG]

    New, sort of carbon strut covers added
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Engine bay is going to be completely overhauled at some point when I ever get around to finishing my Golf.
    [​IMG]

    Also here's some unethical parking for you to look at:

    DISCLAIMER: I was paying for a ticket at the machine where the pic was taken

    Love this car on those wheels, it looks the business.

    I'm another BG owner who longs after a set of those wheels but have to spend my pennies on new belts/dephaser and possibly some coilovers if I can find a good used set.

    Fortunately it was down to a injector going faulty. Managed to pick up a whole rail and a fuel rail cover (which I was missing for some reason) off @cs_dave which arrived today and I got straight to fitting.
    Fuel Rail out

    Old rail
    [​IMG]
    New Rail all lubed up ready to go in

    It had so many watchers apparently know one viewed it. It's a good motor has a few quirks but nothing that a bit of elbow grease can't fix

    The rear of the car is a let down currently, as the number plate has become rather faded allowing the adhesive strips to show through. This combined with the random array of Halfords Spec Renault badges doesnt compliment the rear of the car. So...

    Got an RS badge and a new rear plate to tidy up the rear some.
    To recap the rear of the car looks like this:

    New Plate:

    RS Badge installed this morning:

    Much smarter now, although £40 for a badge is pretty steep lol.

    Got one of my favourite quotes put on the plate. There are some errors in the message, font, capital I in 'If' and McRae is spelt without a capital R. I dont really mind though got half my money back.

    At the time of purchase the £30 one wasn't on eBay, the one I bought back in December was like £38
