Title: billythewhizz b4 and currently
Post by: billythewhizz on 18:17, Sat 13 November 2010
our master plan was.....
take a solid body and a rebuilt engine and put it back to original but while not being fanatical about it !
just need to find out how to attach picture's.

Does look like a nice mint example that electric blue 5! It's definitely a Ph1, the earliest examples of the Ph2 came out in 1987 iirc as an E-plate and there were some 'crossover' examples.
Welcome to the site btw 8)

It has the Ph1 front and rear arches.

It has the Ph2 front bumper, spoiler and grille in the first pic.

Not surprising really, given the age and type of car these are they get 'played' around with quite a lot.

I'm 95% sure that as a 'D' plate it would of rolled out the factory as a Ph1.

Are you thinking of the old shaped R5? Gordini etc.

we got a bit muddled with the photo's so just to clarify, the pic's that are of the car looking a blue/purple are the before and the elec blue are currently.
we changed the grille as we liked it better and thought the car was  a phase 1 because of the year of manufacture !!!!!

obvoiusly there is some debate about that ?

D reg is a phase 1 matey, E reg 5's are the phase 1 / phase 2 crossovers, F reg phase 2

Looking good electric blue is my fav colour for the 5 gtt

Phase 1 come with electric windows as standard

Post by: billythewhizz on 15:30, Sun 14 November 2010
ok so its definatly a phase 1, we somehow were under the impression that the elec windows were added to the phase 2, so hopefully she has all the correct bits to be a phase 1

thanks

you say that but markey mark n scrather can even tell ya, i fort my 'd' reg was a ph1 but its 1 of the cross-overs. reason for that was bodywork, interior was ph2 but engine wise was ph1, struts included. its annoyin slightly as i want to get coilovers but everyone that sells 2nd had are ph2's. :(

Jayy, i think your car in its past has been changed abit over the years as in someone has fitted phase 2 kit, interior and buts like that.

D-reg cars would have come out factory with phase 1 parts attached, it was only really the E-reg cars that were called the 'phase 1.5' crossover cars.

As for the suspension, buy a phase 2 suspension kit them fit phase 2 top mounts

Post by: billythewhizz on 17:11, Sun 14 November 2010
so has she got the correct grille and bumper now, or is that a phase two bumper cos our paint guy had real trouble getting it to fit well ????

The bumper and grill you have on your car now is off a phase 2 model mate
There's no difference to the way they mount so each one can bolt on and off with no problem.

It doesn't really matter though which bumper you got, car looks god anyway. I'd only worry if you were doing a restoration and wanted it to look totally OE

i thought the ligaments for suspension holes under the bonnet where slightly different with each phase or sumit like that.

No mounting holes are all the same for every model

Very nice  :D  :D
The grill and bumper are Phase 2... but try finding phase 1 one's for sensible money  :roll:
I find the bumpers are always tricky to get just right, that's why mine is always wonky.
Electric windows were and option on the Ph1. Definitely on the earlier ones any-hoo.
Like Mark said, they usually get changed around so much over the years.

Post by: Ash-Lee on 21:38, Sun 14 November 2010
The phase 1 bumper is exactly the same but without the 'chin' part on the bottom.

Phase 1 grille is totally different.

Also to add, unlike the pic the kit and bumpers should be unpainted so its still the original black plastic colour

Post by: billythewhizz on 22:23, Sun 14 November 2010
grille is very different, but as luck would have it i like the one we got, and as it was already painted didnt have much choice, they have got rid of the rubber bit that goes round the bumper too, dont mind that either

cheers

Phase 1 cars didn't have the rub strip on the bumper as standard either, that was a phase 2 addition.

As you say your car looks good enough as it is, if your not too worried i'd leave it as it is. :wink:
