I did exactly the same mate, never looked back.

Biggest difference i found in car performance is when i got my r26 on track. Just awesome handling.

Much more refined, comp different driving style (no need to go above 6k) where i was ringing the neck of the 182.

Had a yozza on my 182 so when i got the r26 didnt feel very fast (placebo) until i saw the speedo. Best cheap mod was to drop the back seats down and take the boot mat (thick sound deadening) out then the exhaust came alive sounds like a jet!

nice 1 Pritch - is it local? you trading yours in? was a mint 182

Also mate my mate is the renault technical expert in Cardiff Renault - is doing my cam belt for around £450 odd including all parts (inc water pump) - all genuine parts etc. He does all my work - top notch mechanic. Give me a shout when you want it done mate - mine is going in after christmas unfortunately - its either cam belt or 330mm discs so gonna have to go for the sensible option I think - fingers crossed ill have enough left over fot the r headlights
