Post by: Benj88 on 19:22, Mon 22 February 2010
Hello everyone, I bought my 5 about 8months ago! The car is more or less standard really.. It's been lowerd 35mil, iv dewiperd the boot, refurbed all the wheels put my b20enj plate on and replaced the steering wheel with a 300mil omp. Iv always wanted a 5 and I'm happy I finaly own one!

Ben,  I love your 5...  its great seeing another one in this condition  8)  Its reminds me of mine before I went a bit nuts on the thing.  The small changes you have made are really worthwhile.   The steering wheel makes a real difference to how the car feels and its one of my fave mods.. so thats a nice touch.

 I wouldnt even touch it from how it is now as it looks superb.  I am back in love with standard 5 styling again.... specially the speedlines and red decals.  I'm even putting my rear wiper back on again at the weekend  :lol:

 Is it just my imagination, or are your wiper arms a bit thicker looking in the last pic? Look good.

 Keep posting on here mate!  :wink:

Cheers mate.. Just noticed the wipers it must just be the angle iv took the photo because I havnt changed them! Yeh I love the standard look too, they look loads better with the decals! I'm thinkin about getting 195,45,13s a think it will be quite subtle and il lower the front more, don't think I'd change anything on the bodywork..

There was a 5 campas in the scrapyard so iv took the door cards plasticks etc.. I want to do some alcantara and mebys flock the dash, I quite fancy some recaros.. Just want to tidy/subtly modernise it! Yeh a totaly agree with the steering wheel 300mil just seems the rite size for the car and it feels comfortable

It's got the wrong side repeaters on.

It's therefore dropped in value to maybe 500? I'll pick it up at the weekend?

No seriously, it looks a proper minter. Well done!  8)

 It's great to see another standard 5 with all the original bits still in tact on its body..  love it  8)

 I have thought the same thing as you, but funny enough... low profiles dont look right on the speedlines, it loses its appeal.  The chunky fat tyres are all part of the character of the car.  I would be interested to see how it would look with 45's.   But I was just going to fit the Uniroyals 55's.   Unless your racing in the rain you wont have any probs with them.  I dont drive like a terrorist anymore lol... so for fun short blasts about these wheels and tyres are spot on.  I cant believe how light the steering feels and super responsive... it feels like a fly when it changes direction.

 What exhaust have you got on yours?  I've got the K-tec one.

Post by: Benj88 on 22:36, Mon 22 February 2010
Haha yeh ano there like oval shaped.. A don't mind them but a mite just get some of the standard rectangle ones! I don't drive it like a nutter but a noticed the car was a lot better to handle and control wen a put the wheel on.. Te standard ones are too big to play about with! Iv still kepd it tho!

I think the exhaust is a scorpion mate.. I want rid of it, I fancy a 2 1/2 outrolld cgb do one think it's ashleigh looks nice.. Wots the lowest springs you can get for a 5?

 The zorst you have looks good to me, I've had scorpions before...  I'm not sure what the one CGB sell, but the guy there (Bob) is really helpful to know, he has everything you'll ever need if you get stuck for something. I bought a Cyl head off him that he had machined for me a while ago...and a fair bit of bling bits   8)

  The lowest springs are -50mm,  I have those on mine but not sure they are easy to find anymore or who sell them now?  The ones I have seen have been -30mm. The guys that want to go lower usually use coilovers...  or just let your tyres down  :wink:

Another spankin' 5 - nice 1!! How do you keep the front bumper so stone chip free? Just get it painted well? When I had my car painted years back it ended up with a lot of stone chips, even on rear arches and backmost edges of the sideskirts. They must've thinned the lacquer out too much or something.. :roll:
Title: Re: B20ENJ phase 2 tungy
Post by: Benj88 on 01:30, Tue 23 February 2010
Alright mate thanks.. Well im unhappy to say I have a few stone chips on the front bumper now! Cany piss'd off about it to be honest! I avoid getting close behind other cars to prevent getting them but it's just one of those things! The car gets drove everyday so I try my best to keep it In the best condition possible! I'm guna get me front bumper repainted tho I want the square bit on the passanger side splitter smoothd, I have 2 little chips on my drivers rear arch now aswell but I'm guna get sum paint mixd so I can touch them up myself.. Shit happens ey lol

il put a fee more pics up that are on my photo bucket

wheels after refub at romax, got them powdercoated, I payed about 180 they dun a realy gud job.. Thing is I had to take all the weights off cos they were grinding off my calipers?!

I'm pritty sure there standard brakes.. Wen I drove off after I had my wheels dun the car was makin a noise and drivin funny I turnd round and went bak and just got them to take the weights off, il have to counter balance them mebys try putting the weights behind the spokes, wen the car gets to 80mph the wheels start wobbling lol
Title: Re: B20ENJ phase 2 tungy
Post by: Ash-Lee on 06:09, Tue 23 February 2010
On mine they had to put thew weights on the rim of the wheel because of the clearance.

Looks a bit unsightly, but thats the only way they could do it.

 Yes,  as Ash says...  the weights on the standard wheels are meant to go on the outside of the wheel.  If you look on page 1 of my thread you can see the weights stuck on the outside.  The standard size calipers are far too close to the inside of the wheels to clear the weights on the insides.  You may be able to stick the weights on the inside but further back so the miss the calipers.

Your car looks amazing, everything is in perfect shape  8)

On my speedlines they put the weights on the inside rim out of the way of the callipers, and they're little slim ones too I think.

Oh, and fancy taking my cars to work with you?  :lol:  :lol:  :)

Hi mate, iv used that a few times, usually I Hoover it then get a microfiber and run it under hot water then ring it out and scrub the carpet then rinse and ring it out again. You can see the dirt coming off it wen you ring it out, I think autoglym interior shampoo is good like, use that aswell will a microfiber

Cheers mate, well iv got another engine there that's had a rebuild, the car has no engine at the moment. I'm putting a full new bush kit on the front, new ball joints and track rod ends, also getting the subframe powder coated

Paint the gearbox and block, get new black hoses and make the bay look more oe +

The rear bolts? Absolutely sh!te those captive things they put on around the nut... I find you can just about get a spanner on the nut, but you need two people. One to hold the spanner, and one to undo the bolt.

Been a bit busy with the old 5 lately, while the weathers been bad she's been in the garage getting spoilt

Iv got a spare engine goin in that has been rebuilt, new pistons, re ground crank, ported head, new liner seals etc

My old engine had a few oil leaks the whole bay was a mess, the good thing is though it's projected the subframe and other parts from rust.

The gear box was coverd as well, a bit of gunk and elbow grease soon made a difference
