Some great progress there!
I really like the look of that exhaust, nice and discreet back box  :D

Looking at the GTX donor I've just picked up,the battery is on the opposite side and the coolant bottle is on the left. is that anything to do with GTE being a left hooker?

I have bought alot of spares from GT Turbo Spares lately. Great service and great products. Also been buying alot from CGB, great service there as always!

I bought all side indicators in white earlier together with new headlamps, but now I'm actually thinking of buying a set of orange ones instad as that would be more OEM style and to me the white ones looks a bit dull however it gives the car a more modern charm. Not easy  :|

Rliaklev: Cool! Then I'm not alone in this country. Though my car is not a turbo  :cry:
One question, where do you buy original parts? I've tried to order something at Billia, but they told me the parts and numbers were out of date.   :? I was first told that they didn't have 5 in their segment. But after looking myself it was named supercinq in their parts catalogue.

Ordered some new wheels today!

4 alloys = 230
4 tires = 130

total 360  :)

These alloys


Photoshopped them on a random white GTT

Changed spark plugs, ignition cables and exhaust the other day now the car is only firing 3 cylinders. Really don't know why  :cry: Owning a french car isn't easy I assume.

I've test fitted the new wheels too, and they look GOOD!  :mrgreen:






Removed some rust too..

Remove the plugs and check their gap
