Ooooh, any chance you could send me a copy please? I do have a friendly MOT station that know about it but I couldn’t get it done by them last year when I need to get a new cert and the other station (Renault main dealer :rolleyes) were utter twonks about it.

Of course. Drop me a PM with your email address and I'll send it over ASAP.

The article states that the car is unmodified, yet I'm pretty sure that is an after market induction kit, an ITG maybe if my memory of 182 ownership serves me well. Any thoughts?

Doesn’t look like you accept emails? I can receive through my profile if you can fire it across? beer

Had one of these 2012-2013

Quite possibly the best car I've owned for pure driving pleasure, completely lived up to the hype (current car for reference is an e46 m3!)

Paid £1250 for mine, it was a bit rough around the edges bodywork wise but the engine, gearbox and drivetrain felt totally solid even at 120k when I sold it.... the new owner bought it as a weekend/occasional track day car, one of first things he reported back was a rolling road test where it made 166 bhp biggrin.

Engines are really strong on these as mine was testament to.

Would happily have another and it would have to be the PH1 like this....alloy bonnet, white dials, blue interior, cable throttle !!

W752 WTR currently sorn...hope she's still in one piece

The silver really suits this car ..I've got a 172 Exclusive with grey leather seats ( Grey, not Cream as quoted earlier) ..cracking cars that handle like a go kart..I've had an itch to Buy a phase 2 cup for a couple of yrs but can't bring myself to replace phase 1, which I think personally looks better , the only thing I'd change is putting a cup rear spoiler on it..
