Hi, new to the forum, had my Renaultsport Twingo just over a week now, it's a 58 reg in black, how do i tell if it's a cup version?
It's not got the bench in the back, just the two seats, but it's got the 17" alloys.

Welcome to the forum

Sounds like someone has removed the rear seats!
As a rule they would normally come with rear seats as standard and dose it not tell you on a sticker inside the driver's door if it's cup or not?

Sorry, i mean it's got two seats in the back instead of the bench, i'll give that sticker a check inside the drivers door, thanks

58 plates had the cup chassis as an option, there was not a cup variant in existence back then. Rear benches did not exist until the cup variant was introduced.

If you have 17s then I suspect you have the cup chassis option added but only a reg/vin check with Renault can confirm.

Stick your head under the back bumper and check for a purple stripe on the shocks. Purple stripe = cup pack

Likely it is has the cup chassis option as you have the 17" alloys. A give away is the harsh ride even when driving on new fresh tarmac haha

I've just checked the reg of your vehicle on our systems - It does have cup suspension, yes.
