No offence but in the first post you mentioned the engine runs hot (apparently like they all do) then in the second you say it never overheats, then you say you replace the 'usual' headgasket.

Mine never overheats, head gasket is still in one piece and doesn't churn out rusty coloured water.  :shock:


so when you give your car a bit of stick pal it doesnt get warm  :?:  :?:
its a cramped bay thats all i meant by it running hot pall ,temps never go over half way on gauge usually somewere in between quarter and half way
so yes it runs hot ,but never overheats like i stated pal lol
yes i have changed the headgasket a couple of times actually mate ,once due to it seeping slightly , once because it actually did let go but was racing a m3 at the time
and last time was due to me taking the head off to inspect so a fresh gasket went on
hasnt had one since must be on last one for 5ys plus pal ... have you even owned your 5 that long pal?????........ no offence heheh
also gunky coolant was due to breaking a jubilee clip on header tank so whilst last running the hose blew off and spewed everywere
that was the last straw at the time for me so i pushed it in the garage and left it as im lazy havent touched it since
no problems just lazyness on my part hahahaha
i save all my cleaning and buftying for my cosworths hence me neglecting the 5 gt shame thats why its being sold tho
whats with the digs anyway lads thought this was a enthusiast site for 5,s
not a lets have a dig at someone for nothing site lol
i left all that shit in the playground about 16yrs ago boys
anyway if it worries you that much pal why dont you come up and clean it for us pal ..as i cant be arsed its not even the correct header tank for the phase 1 as its later phase 2 rubbish lmao  (phase 1 headers rarer than hens teeth )
regards

In all fairness it reads more like your the one giving the "digs" with "pal" at the end of each sentence

All anyone was saying was by the looks of the 2 pics below that it doesnt look like its either 210bhp or very well looked after

Loads of spare bits and bobs for the 5 if you need anything, all used of course but if your in Ireland and your stuck give me a bell

no pun intended mate i call people pal all the time ,just a regional lingo thing heheh
and of course the car looks neglected it hasnt been used for 4-5yrs mate hence the reason for selling seemed a shame sitting there i agree it looks grubby but a good car is there with a good sort through i just havent got the time as i have other projects on the go which include a bare metal resto on a saff cosworth turning it into a track beast ... also have other projects on the go and not enough time to do them all  :roll:

nice photoshop lol that looks exactly how it used to be ahahah and it did used to sit lower on the front similar to the pic but with the 16" wheels it caught so i changed the springs to a diff set to raise it slightly which helped stop it rubbing imo 15" wheels would be much better for the car only put these wheels on the car to roll it around the garage etc

sorry if i offended anyone as im not like that as im sure you would find if you met myself lol
regards  :wink:

 No worries...  I just like to see things finished! lol  :lol:

 No... I dont have any photo editor.  Believe it or not I just used the standard windows paint program thats only got about 3 different paint tools   :shock:   but I'm quite good at drawing so it looks alright...  I made sure all the panels were on straight so u'll be ok!  :wink:  I put you a new ariel on the top as well so you can get sounds tuned in.

Nice spot GTTBoy with the skeleton..  :D  but I dont remember putting that in the window!?  :shock:
