clio 220 trophy front side lights

Hi, I have a july 2016 (pre facelift) registered 220 trophy clio (UK spec). Should the normal front sidelights come on? When i switch the side lights on, I get rear lights and the front DRLs dim, but no side lights in main headlamp clusters (bulbs are there). Dash light comes on to advise sides are on. All other light functions work as normal (dipped/main etc). I've checked fuses which seem ok and wiring etc to the headlamps. I only ask because I'm sure when i first bought the car i physically checked what all the switches did and sidelights were on as well as DRL's. I looked today and have no front sidelights, just dimmed DRL's and rear lights when i switch on sidelights. The handbook is unclear and the internet suggests "just dimmed DRL's" or "DRL and side light" for the normal sidelight function. Basically, is this normal or a fault then I can get my local dealer to sort it out. Thanks Matt

Clio 182 Trophy Sachs Shocks

I don't suppose that there is any chance of engaging Sachs in reproducing the shocks they built for the 182 Trophy? I know that many of us owners would very much appreciate some new shocks! Many of us have had them re-conditioned but there is a limit to the number of ties that this can be done. Any help would be appreciated!

Clio 182 Trophy Shocks

Hi Jeremy, They have been reconditioned but there will come a time shortly where they pass the point of no return (bit like Triggers brush from Only Fools and Horses!) The Trophy's status is increasing so it would be great to be able to preserve this with the support of replacement parts.

Clio 182 Trophy Shocks

Hi - I understand from SB Motorsport that they can be reconditioned many times but that, eventually, new ones will be required. We already commissioned new rear shock absorbers last year and we will discuss internally what we could do with the front
