If your talking about r888s you will have to trim the rear bumper slightly else they will rub. Most 50 tyres should fit on no problem unless they have a thick side wall like the r888s

A lot more than that from renault. multiply it by 4 and you might get close im guessing. I have an already sealed one in my back garden if your interested in it for free. rather large to post really, would be funny walking into the post office with it though.

They are not that bad to change, as long as the bolts have not rusted away underneath. Just remember to unplug the connectors at the top though when removing, and drain out all the petrol before hand else could get messy

200sx I believe you need to turn the turbo around for it to fit. Not sure about the punto though, most people go for the rover tomcat turbo and block the section not needed with a plate, think they have a built in dump valve or something like that on them.

I have heard its easy to shatter the GTA rear screen, but haven't heard it on any other car. Could there be too much current going through the screen causing it to heat up?

The GTA only goes on when you turn the ignition on and thats for a couple of secs. If your having trouble starting it will practically be on constantly causing it to overheat and explode. Im sure not a fun thing to happen. Especially with the GTA back window being so expensive.

I had endless amounts of trouble with clutch cables, broke two with 2 weeks. Went to renault, might be more expensive, but fitted fine straight away and no troubles. Plus that last for ages before I swapped over the engine.

Hopefully you can see the pictures. I has changed now though, gone back to original front bumper, bonnet.

Haven't shown the back of car as on these pictures its totally smooth all the way down when I have now put a standard boot/rear bumper in place. Looks much nicer. Need to take more pictures of it really.

Hi im Dale, or know as Bigfoot. I come over from RTOC, well just popping my head in just to see if anyone wants to parts but need to post 20 topics so will see a lot of replies from me  :lol:

A lot of you will know me as I do recognise a lot of forum names off RTOC.

Anyone I currently own:

Black Renault 5 GT Turbo - Has a 1.8 16v turbo engine in there, currently waiting for a map when I get myself booked in at track & road.

2 x Renault 5 GT Turbo Raiders, one is going to be a project which im collecting OE parts for at the moment to restore, the other has been cut up with an angle grinder and in the process of getting rid of all the parts.

Also a Renault 19 16v convertible. This is my run around, my abused car which gets me everywhere, including a couple of trips over to germany to rag around the Nurburgring and also whole day at Malory Park

Ill post up pics and specs later to add to my post count so it will be easier to get to that 20 mark. Seeming thats the magic number to reach.
