Well done ade!

Your Clio’s seem great value.

Much as I prefer driving to ‘wrenching’ I can admit the feeling of satisfaction after a job is good 😎👍🏻

The last 9 months on the 340R has given plenty of this

Not quite as esoteric as 172's, 182's and the like but my Clio 1.2 is now over 211,000 miles and passed it's latest MOT with no issues :clap:

It's just had its first ever replacement exhaust...the original lasted until now!

Popped into Mark Fish this afternoon for a chat and show him the Exige. Always good to have a look what’s on the ramps.

Ever been there Ade?

Yes, Mark setup the suspension on both mine and Steve's Clio's. He is very good, just rather expensive....

Well I seem now to be an "expert" in removing and refitting Clio gearboxes in my garage.
Steve's car is now repaired with it's new gearbox, he just has the most god awful vibration tizzing noise from the gear lever, I think I leave it just to annoy him for a while ;)
