hi guys. thinking of returning
« on: 11:03, Sun 15 May 2011 »
well long time no see for any one that remembers me, i had a r5 gtt raider, unfortanly the acuator pipe failed and it ate its head gasket at anything over 30psi as the gauge just shot round the gauge,
 any way im up for another, ive had a e36 and currently so far a 306 xtdt, which has pump mods running 18psi. so this car will go to the gf in a few months and im looking for a r5 to keep me happy again!

main qestion, what price am i looking for the following
1. needs work, but drivable while doing so
2. half decent, not much needed, maybe bit of rust
3. good condition hardly any ifat all rust but standard as far as possible

 (havent got cash fora mint one)

last time i was around mint ones were circa 1k and one looking sorry for its self around 400 quid, mine was good condition but not mint and would have got 700, ifit were not for the pipe


hope you guys can help, look forward to being around these cars again thanks

Welcome back to the forum mate, glad to hear your getting another 5 :-). Prices seam to very quite a bit, suppose you get what you pay for but suspect them to be a little more valuable now.

400 is unlikely.

Maybe if someone needs to shift one really quick, but even then i doubt you would be able to drive it away.

About 1k i reckon.

Mate, i dont know if you knew elcies old black 5 but as far as i can work out the bloke who purchased it has it back up for sale. For a grand!! It seems to be a nearly mint 5 so if you are interested in it snap it up! Its on pistonheads.co.uk 1000, Black with black wheels and the clio (?) bonnet vent.

thanks ill take a look, i have about 6=8 weeks before i will be buying so im just scoping r5's atm, once it comes nearer the time ill go look at some. shame as well theres one not far from me, all it needs is side skirts and rear seats putting back in/on. last time i looked it was 500 apparently had a rebuild not so long ago.

(that one finished, forgot to stick it on the watch list,)

but something along the lines of this, needs work but not to much,

Im pretty much in the same boat as you mate. looking at returning to the R5 scene...but I'm even poorer than you! haha. im looking at starting a project from a scrapper. i've got a bit longer and a garage to store it in.

I've been looking at the exact same cars as you on ebay but not having much luck with the 400 quid mark either.

Just thought I'd give you a welcome back and a shout of ''GOOD LUCK!''
