Your car looks fantastic. The retrim is quality. Might give it a go myself. My ones are wrecked too.

Thats really smart. the car sits really well on the turbines

I've not seen another on the road for a long time, but i'll say this. The attention I get driving my one is amazing. People staring or pointing at it. I had a guy today follow me to Sainsburys just so he could look at the car.

What you going to be using car for? If its hard driving/track driving then i would say use a more grippy tyre but if its just a daily driver then they shoud be ok.
I tend to own 5's with alittle bit of power so i find 13's no good on the road so thats only reason i don't use Uniroyals

Just day to day driving to be honest. Not one for track days. The tread on the uniroyals don't look the best, I know its not all about that though.

I have a small fleet of fast renaults. I have a rs megane 225 cup which I have had from new. I've put a miltek cat back s/s exhaust on it, Ktec uprated intercooler, itg panel filter, painted the mirrors and wheels gloss black. Next for it is a trip down to rs tuning for a stge 1 re-map and have my forge actuator fitted.

I also have Williams clio No 227. I bought this 2 years ago to restore it back to standard. Love this car. Like the 5 its a hoot to drive. Every nut and bolt on this is ethier being replaced or fixed up.

My brother has a ph1 172. Its a family thing haha


Wow. I thought the pics on detailing world were good. Even better on here. What a job you've done. attention to detail is fantastic

Peel back the rubber cover where the wires pass from the car body into the boot, it's up by the hinges. Check the condition of the wires.

Mine had twisted and frayed over the years.

Thanks I'll have a look over the wknd when i'm off again.

Really? So stay away from the uniroyals? I ran uniroyal rallye's on my old 182 and they were ok. I've found 185 60 13 yoko A539's for 50 a corner. I run yoko parada's on my williams and they stick like glue. I think i'll go for the A539'S

Did the 5 gtt ph2 originally come with 195 55 13 tyres? I have 185 60 13's on the car at the moment that need replaced. Is it advised to go back to original or can I replace like for like what I have at the moment

Hey guys. I'm having some bother with my rear wiper and heated rear screen.
When press the button/switch on the dash the heated rear light illuminates, but the screen does not clear. New rear window maybe?
The rear washer works fine, but when I press the switch for the rear wiper... nothing happens. I've had the fuse box out and checked the fuse/relay. I can hear and feel the relay click when I push the button and the fuses are in tact??? Is there a difference between a front wiper relay and a rear relay? I've also bought a new rear wiper motor and still no joy. Any help would be appreciated.
