Ok so i found the perfect R26 for me in Black with xenons (the only real mod i was after)

Anyway, i asked a friendly member on here what record is of it with Renault...

EXHAUST: DOWNPIPE AND CATALYTIC CONVERTER
service
REAR-VIEW MIRROR
FRONT AND REAR WIPERS/WASHERS
SOUND, AUDIO EQUIPMENT, DISPLAY, DVD, SPEAKER
CLIMATE CONTROL, INC CONTROL PANEL
PEDAL SWITCH
DOOR MECHANISMS-LOCKS
TRIM
BOOT MECHANISMS-LOCKS
SEATS, FRAMES, SUB-FRAME
ALTERNATOR, STARTER, PULLEY, and BELT only
TURBOCHARGER, INLET MANIFOLD, FILTER

I wish i never asked! I knew Frog cars were bad but... really what im after is whether i should just totally forget it and look/wait for another, go and see it and offer then like £1k under their sale price, or not worry about it and carry on asif i didn't know... it has HPi'dall clear, this explains the three previous owners i think.


What would you do??

Well owned, but the mileage is very low

Better the devil you know? None of it's serious and as said, the areas concerned are now sorted. You could buy a "good" one that you know nothing about that turns out to be a dog......
How soon do you want one, i'd have thought there'd be plenty out there to choose between?
If it's not too far from you go and see it anyway.

Go see it mate. You can always walk away. TBH though I can't see why it would need some of those parts. Inlet manifold, seats, sub frames and the like. You sure the info is right? Take the list with you and have a look at the parts on it to see how recently they could of been swapped over. Is it from a dealer or private?

Got a link to the add or any more details just to have a quick look at?

streetfighter, none serious at all? I thought the likes of cat, downpipe, turbo, manifold, seats

Let alone the headunit, speakers...


It is roughly 40 miles from me, so fairly local. I've been looking for over 2 months now and this is was the best black one i had found so far.

I will go and see it anyway, but thanks for the idea to check these replaced parts, i'd not thought of doing that.

MJ i will PM you it to keep the car abit private incase i do buy this one anyway... thanks all for the advice

Isn't that the category of the part though?

I.e if you replaced a broken seat handle it would be classed in that category?

On my 172 I replaced a few trims and door badges but it comes up as trims/panels etc..

I don't know Daz. With the first part it states Exhaust which is the category followed by the specifics. Non of the others seem to be listed in this way.
