Project 182 Inferno



  Clio mk2
After months of searching, I finally got an Inferno 182 a couple of months ago now. Viewed a few different ones but couldn't find a nice, low mileage example for ages.
All the nice ones were a million miles away and the rest that was near had s**t for sale ads. But in the end, I found this Inferno hiding away in Grimsby and really glad I held off for this colour.

Quick overview:
Around 66k miles with some mods already done. The main ones being a full ktec exhaust system, front seats and 40mm springs.
No service history before the father/son who had owned it as they had a small falling out with the previous owner over a small mechanical fault, so the books weren't sent over. So, unfortunately, no actual proof of belts being done but do have a screenshot of the ebay ad which mentions the belts last done in 2015. So will be getting all done later this year or early next year.
Few issues here and there. Serv/abs light comes on intermittently (although hasn't come on for a quite a while now). Doesn't affect anything when driving.
Handbrake position wack so back brakes binding.
Engine light due to decat.
The biggie is an immobiliser that occasionally doesn't want to start. Going to get a specialist to have a look at this one day. Can normally trick it to work by either pressing the brake pedal or getting in/out of the car. But would rather get this looked at soon ish in case it decides one day to completely go nope.
Don't think the cruise control works either.

But apart from some other niggles here and there am proper happy with her. Looks ace, sounds ace and goes well. Going to take a while to get used to it going from the 1.2.

Have done a fair bit since owning it and has been in the garage for the past couple of weeks for a huge service/sorting out some of the above issues so I'll update this more over the next few weeks as to what has been done.

Lots of plans for her but not trying to spend too much atm as planning to travel again shortly so will be getting tucked up in a garage somewhere whilst I'm away.
If you've seen my other thread with the non-sport you'll realise am pretty ocd with the attention to detail, expect the same with this :)

One standard phone pic for now (during a major cleaning sesh)..

Looks lovely, Inferno is underrated IMO. Especially when it’s been polished up! I didn’t set out to get an Inferno myself but when I viewed it I changed my mind very quickly lol.

Guessing it’s a Cup?

Yeah it's a cup.
