My R5
« on: 13:20, Fri 27 June 2008 »
My Renault 5, its a GTS, not a turbo.

Although, I do have a complete turbo engine, unsure whether to fit or not.

Brought it for 180.

Has been sitting in my garage for the past 6 years.

Its a G reg with 88K miles on it.

What it was like when I got it;




Haven't done much to it.





Spent all in all and about 100 on it.

Lowered front by 20mm.
Rear by 20 or 30mm - cant remember

Gaz Shocks on the rear - I think, at work and cant remember off the top my head!

Alloys, had for awhile, so stuck them on - 15" Dotz.

Wanting a R5 turbo, but still haven't found one in a good condition!

What do you think?

not lookin bad mate.
chuck the turbo lump in, and maybe put the steels back on, it'd be well fun. imagine leavin some bad boy corsa for dust in a sleeper like that.

I did think about that.

To fit the turbo lump, would it be as easy as, old out, new in?

The exhaust; I didnt fit, I got it like it, and is way to big as well.

Anyone recommend a back box for this? I dont really want a bean can on it!
