what about anthricite or would it be too much grey :?


They work really well on the 5,  there was a copper colour 5 with anthracite versions...   8)  not sure if you can buy them anthracite or you have to get them done like that yourself.

Thanks alot GTTboost :)
I brought it to an annual car show in the beginning of may this year. It got lots of attention, on the way to the show, on the show and on the way home  8)

One of the main reason for this must be because there were 7 registered GTT`s in Norway in 2005, and the number is sinking. So in this country the car is pretty unique even as standard  8)

Yup, salt and cars shouldnt be mixed. We have the same problem in Norway as you got in Scotland. When you go to bed at night you end up having nightmares because you hear the rust eating up your car...  :?

i reckon you should try a set of the flat wipers, i put them on mine the other day. they'd give a nice little touch to your car



and i'd get the compomotive wheels, they look brilliant, in a lighter anthricite color so the car doesn't look too dark?

Thanks alot for the tips.

Its been a while since the last time i wrote here. So heres a little updadte on what ive been working on since then:

The heater matrix in the car decided to start leaking, and as the fool I am I started looking for leaks in the door and sunroof seals instead of just ripping out the dash at once... Anyway the heater matrix has been changed now. (Its never going to be changed by me again, what a crappy job)

Im still trying to work out a bunch of electrical faults.

At the moment my biggest problem is refitting the dash, and of course the clips at the sides were too brittle and broke. also the dash wont fit properly.(I guess Ill find the instructions in the technical issues somewhere)

And now for the good news :)

I might get a set of 16" wheels traded directly against the 15" Ive got now :)

I might put out a few work in progress pictures by the end of the week, as Im working evening shifts this week.

Well the cars rolling on 16"s now



sorry about the bad quality picture. its just to illustrate.

At the moment im trying to mount a FMIC and a 13row oil cooler.
both are the universal type.

Does anyone of you have more detailed photos of the pipeline from the turbo to the carb? It would help me alot.

Also one more thing. The silicone pipes I got with the IC seems to be way to tight, is this normal? at the moment im considering using an angle grinder to try to get the pipes to fit. I guess that isnt te best of ideas.

Im also fitting a 2mm steel plate under the front bumper to avoid costly resprays.

Thanks  8)

Hehe yes we have more speedramps here than normal road... It havnt been much trouble yet, tho Im fitting 2mm steel plates under the bumper to avoid expensive resprays if i hit some of these.

Oh and YES theres actually a good reason why im fitting a FMIC now... The old one blew up!!! :lol:  litterally hehe.

As stated before, I really could use som more detailed pics of how the pipes should go. I cant see where the pipes go on the pics in the DIY section.
