Thanks Im really starting to like the look of the car, allthough i think im going to buy the front arches for the kit, to make it complete.

Yup its down with the worms :lol:

Thats why im saving for this kit http://www.dsengineering.co.uk/airsuspe ... p?model=23

Hehe I was born in Bergen :)

1200 is alot i know but still its worth it if i get a car that can drive over speedbumps :P


When it comes to the air suspension I just googled for it and found the site. I have no idea if they are up and running or not to be honest.

Your car is nice :) ....

Sad, but in Finland we are not allowed to use adjustable air suspension kits (I think that Citroen is only manufacturer that uses air suspension kits)...

Well i dont think thatll be a problem as when its time for MOTs i can allways change back to the Konis and use the original front bumper, and change back again the day after :lol:

I dont really know how the rules in Norway are when it comes to air suspension. But if I get Renault to accept it then suddenly its legal... Guess ill just wait and see what happens.  :wink:

Thanks :)

Yep, I really like the way it fills out the mesh in the front bumper.
I must admit that im proud of the work Ive put into the car the last year, I would have done more if it wernt for the F#"% short on money bit  :lol:
Being a student doesnt help either so after next summer, it might just come quite a few new mods on it  :D  I cant wait :)

Its been a long time sice i last posted an update on how things are going with my 5. My headgasket gave up and died. So now Ive got 2 options on what to do with it.

Option 1: Get an uprated headgasket and just change it

Or I could (and really want to)

Option 2: Change the headgasket, and drive the car onto a boat heading for the UK. And hopefully one of you guys could help me out with a complete rebuild of the engine, change the clutch, fitting a wideband, and fitting a VNTturbo.  8)

But first I need to get the funds for this, Im thinking of doing this in the mid og late summer.

If this is something that sounds interesting, PM me or write it here in this thread. Of course Im not putting my 5 in the hands of someone who hasnt done this type of rebuild before.

And yes im serious. Theres just about noone in Norway who know how to do any work on the GTT`s.

If there where someone in Norway that could be trusted with my car, I would have gone there...
