Clio 172 needing a new home after a surprise Roffle win. Location Dundee

Recommended Posts

After hearing the news about a Jag incoming something has to give and this is the one that pulled the short straw.

 

History, it is the one 320Touring purchased over the internet in the midlands and it had a knackered gearbox, that thread is here:

It had a gearbox fitted and quite a few miles put on it. I had a shot of it one Wednesday evening at the monthly Scotoshite dinner and was impressed/terrified with it. Discussions were had and the MX5 left the fleet to The Moog and this arrived.

 

It was as described 'bloody fast' and I set about doing some of the necessary bits to it, these start here:

Some bits were a little involved to change

I will get some better* pictures probably tomorrow.

 

It is currently MOTed until the 23rd of June but a new MOT could be put in place a bit early. It currently has a decat fitted which will be an issue for the test but putting a bit of effort in should make it go through.

 

The rear tyres are good and the front are new Uniroyal rainsport 3's. 

The Auxiliary belt, tensioner and idler pulley have been done.

There is evidence of the belt and dephaser being done in the history but I haven't looked at the paperwork but that is a picture of the belt and dephaser on the car when I changed the engine mounts.

 

I am about £1200 in at this point and would like to see as much as possible back!

 

Any interest on here before I brave the public?

 

I will add the bits I remember when I do, things like it has Cruise control.

It isn't outside at the moment of I would have got the pictures already!

LIKE LIKE LIKE but cannot afford this and food and bills etc. :(

By my calculations that would give you plenty of time to moderate your eating habits and make sure everything is turned off in the house to save on energy bills ;)

Love it, always wanted to try a modern 'Hot Hatch' and that qualifies. Just waiting to see how utterly fooked financially I am before.... GLWTS :)

 

If this Clio has gone by then I dare say I can find you another modern hot hatch from somewhere ;)

Oooh has Sporty bagsied this?

I was going to throw the idea at my "stupid idea pointer outer" and see what happened. My sphincter has just about recovered from when 320T let me drive his.

 

His? Is that this one? Or a different one?

This is the one. That one. The one that I advised you to floor, and not to drive like a granny!

A really helpful* picture of the dash.

One of the thumb bits is a bit shabby.

Other side is ok.

Driver's seat bolster wear and split stitching on the base.

Really comfy seats though.

It didn't have anything in the rear when I got it as it had been stripped out for lightness. The seats and trim from Chuck's Clio were applied to make it usable.

The one that made me squeal like a girl.

 

Aye. Want. Sadly not convinced leaving it on the street on the other side of town is the best way to insure one of these for cheaps, and it sounds like Shitey Sport has started negotiations.

Messages have been exchanged, and it would appear that a logistics issue has been solved. Mr Tickman will no longer have to dread the thought of utilising public transport to make a trip south, and I may have ticked another box on my "cars to own" list.

 

Win-Win.

I have been saved from public transport and just details and timings to sort.

      Moving this over here in case anyone has missed it. Needing this gone within next 2 weeks due to losing parking space. Couple of faults but nothing major. Its mot'd til jan and in good running order. Price drop to £300 as is for quick sale, otherwise i fix the faults and stick it on bumtree for twice that amount! Would make a good winter beater for someone

      Going to try this on here before the fun that is eBay or similar.
       
      My mum has recently replaced her trusty old SportKa with a newer 500 and currently it’s just sat in the garage.
       
      It’s only done 38k with I think mum being the third owner plus a very large file of bills. As you can see from the MOT history ‘a lot’ of miles have been done in the last few years....! Has the leather interior, an aftermarket Bluetooth kit, Air Con that works and four good tyres plus working remote key.
       
      It has had some attention by a welder in the past but the filler area is solid and other than a few obvious bits on the sills and corners of the rear bumpers is in nice condition.
       
      If anyone is interested please let me know. I’m back there later this week so can look at the paperwork or anything else on the car in more detail.
       
      She’s looking for about £750-800.
       
      Car is currently SORN and located in deepest Lincolnshire (near Spilsby).

      Departarting from the norm, I'm being lazy and have actually managed to convince the seller to deliver to my house at no cost. It's only the other side of town but haven't got the time to collect today.

      2 hour countdown starts at 9am

      Hot on the heels of last week’s collectioneering of a Xantia, another collection starts here and now. Well it is probably a collection as long as the car is as described, but I am optimistic.

      Clues. It’s enormous yet quite cramped. Never had one before and it could be considered blessed, saintly even!

      It's the green one.
      If you're proper horny for it then PM me, but anyone with cash can buy a car any time. Meh.
      Would roffle, but CBA with the admin.
       
      Therefore, funtime!
       
      Another KruJoe-spec 99p start AUCTION...
       
      (GBP (Pounds Sterling) bids only, no licked Twixes (John_F, I'm talking to you), bid increments 50 pence or more, that's up to you. Auction ends 24 hours after the last bid. Other T&C's may apply if I haven't thought of them yet.)
       
      It's a risk, but I'll take it.
      I've thought of a number as a reserve, roughly bridge price plus today's £50 MOT fee, so above that, I'm happy. If it doesn't work, we'll re-think, but his is will be a cheap car for one of you lot.
       
       
      Location:
       
      Central, so close to everyone on mainland UK.
       
      Collection: most days/times are possible, evenings are good. Relaxed timescale, storage is not a problem here. I can bring you to it from Skipton bus or rail station.
      The Car.
      My dependable daily for two FTP-free years. Ex-JohnK and Bramz. 
      1.4 Rti run-out model, lots of toys. 
      Cheap tax and cla$$ic policy friendly (£140pa, Carole Nash. A.Flux quoted similar).
      Tested until 31 May 2020, advised on two back tyres.
      Not yet 62,000 on the dial. Likely to be SORN'd before June. V5 here, with loads of history.
      New oil and filter last week.
      Good batt, exhaust, brakes etc. There are a few minor niggles, I've just lived with it. Character, innit.
      Squishy-comfort velour in fine fettle. (Almost) everything works.
      The bodywork scrubs up well but there's some bits of rust if you really go looking. It doesn't stop it being a respectable motor… until… last week one of my favourite brothers rubbed a tractor down the side, damaging two doors and the mirror.

      All still work fine, and I still have the (undamaged) plastic strip from the door. I don't have the arsedness to try improving it cosmetically and I'm ready for a change of daily anyway. The worst would likely push out from inside. As would the small bit on the arch – it's single skinned there. Until that happened, nobody has ever turned their nose up at it, and it has attracted a lot of positive conversation. 








      99p anyone?
