    Renaultsport Clio 172 Cup

    Probably not much interest on here but worth a shot anyway

    Time to sell my "project" 172 Cup. It was a very neglected car with a knackered engine and lots of other knackered/ruined/bodged parts when I bought it in February 2019

    It has been put back to completely standard with the exception of the cat-back exhaust with Ktec silenced decat, Powerflex dogbone mount, ITG panel filter and Eibach Proline springs (closest equivalent replacement for OE springs)

    Car itself is on 147,500 miles and in daily use so will go up a bit

    Replacement engine with 84,000 miles was fitted at 133,365

    Good gearbox with no crunches or whines

    Healthy engine making 167.3 bhp at Surrey Rolling road

    MOT 6th November 2021

    New genuine Renault cambelt kit & dephaser pulley fitted 28th June 2021 at 147,000 miles along with fresh engine oil Total Quartz Racing 10w50, Tranself 75w80 gearbox oil and new spark plugs​
