Title: whats the distance?
Post by: sloany on 11:10, Tue 08 July 2008
You can drive your 5 GTT on the motorway for? say for example I pick one up from ummmmmm north yorkshire wold I be able to drive it all the way back to south wales at normal speed not driving it hard in one go or would I have to stop and give it a breather every  so often?

not that theres a car in north yorkshire for sale, I just need an idea of what kinda distance I go can before the car needs a cool down

If the car is in good mechanical condition there is no limit, i drov 2 1/2 hrs to Santa pod, then did 25 + runs @ 1.6 bar & then drove it home again ;)

Agree with Steve if a car is in good mechanical condition it can drive for as long as you like.

i picked mine up from cornwall, right near the sea-side, and drove it back to luton. only cruised it mostly off boost around 56mph according to the sat nav.
took about 6 hours and only stoped once for a coffe and fuel.

Just drove mine from Scotland to Germany, then round the nurburgring a couple of times gently then all the way home. No problems at all.  The only problem you will have if you have to idle in traffic alot but if you do just put the heaters on hot and direct the hot air into the cabin etc to cool things down. Also make sure its got good coolant in it.
