What shall I do ?
« on: 18:33, Wed 22 June 2011 »
I'm going to run a little poll to see what others think as I'm a little stuck.
Do I persevere & finish the Raider, drop the turbo lump into the 19 or sell the 19 as it's near mint & could be a good standard car..
Let's see what people think..
The 5 will prob be fine when I put the new head on as I reckon it was the lifters..
The 19 is wider & not many turbo ones in the UK...
Both retro &  8)

Well, as if it isn't obvious you should definitely keep the raider as 5GTT's are definitely the coolest cars Renault have ever made, well could be a toss up between them and the turbo 2?

As for the 19, if you were to sell it with the niggles you've pointed out sorted, you'd probably make a tidy profit. It's probably a more comfy and refined car than the 5, but also heavier so the power to weight would be down compared with the 5. and you are definitely keen on the power hence going the F7P turbo route in the 1st place, although I did vote to keep the raider and turbo the 19!

The 19 looks to nice to clean to start messing around with.

There must be a reason why you wanted to get another 5, so keep that for your 'tinkering' sessions.

How good is the 19?
Ideal world, show and shine car for the 19. Little ripper for the 5.
But keeping one. Hmm, I'd probably keep the Raider.

19 is in alot better shape than the Raider TBH, the raider is ok but needs a little tarting up to finish, prob 250 on paint.

I'm steering toward the 19 TBH just because there are no turbo 19's that I know of & it's so clean & comfy, must be getting old  :mrgreen:

Stick with the 5 as the toy mate, i'm sure the fault is a simple one. I'd use the 19 as an everyday car if you need one as they are bloody good cars. If not i'd say sell as you did get a bargin there and could make nice little bit of proifit.
