Sadly it’s time to sell my Clio Trophy – number 416 of 500. This car comes with a full service history and a big file of additional receipts going back to 2006. The MOT runs until April 2019. The last three MOTs have all been straight passes. Key maintenance work includes… • Brand new battery – September this year • New front and rear discs and pads including rear hub bearings in January this year • New “dog bone” stabiliser mount bushings in January this year • Full underbody, wheel arch and cavity wax at authorised Dinitrol treatment centre – September 2017 • Coolant temperature sensor (known weak point) – June 2017 • New alternator – February 2017 • Sachs rear dampers replaced – November 2015 • Scorpion RS192 stainless exhaust – August 2015 • Timing belt service including dephaser pulley, water pump and auxiliary drive belt – April 2015 • Sachs front damper service – May 2010 Cosmetically the car is good but there are a few minor issues, commensurate with age. Worst of these are: a small tear in the driver’s seat bolster (currently taped over – see pictures); a scuff on the front bumper and a small patch of corrosion at the edge of the bonnet, just above the light. These are just about visible in the pictures. Modifications are subtle and worthwhile: Scorpion RS192 stainless exhaust (as mentioned on the “Harry’s Garage” video that you might have seen); a K & N air filter and the split folding seat from the regular 182 model, which is a far better match to the car than the standard Campus spec bench seat. Mileage is currently 92970 but this may rise slightly as the car will still be in use until sold. I should mention that the stereo recoded itself when the alternator went back in in 2017. I tried the code that Renault supplied but without any luck. Renault would like £120 to diagnose the problem so I’ll leave it up to the new owner to decide whether to go down that route, seek independent advice or to fit a replacement. All-in-all a very good, usable car with excellent history behind it. One to drive, not stow away! Viewing possible in Macclesfield, Cheshire. Any questions – just ask.
