Hello to all
« on: 19:55, Sun 15 May 2011 »
I have winged a 5 turbo for about 5-6 years but never got one.
I decided that I was just going to buy one so searching eBay and I found one
Phase 2 90000 miles tungsten grey dry stored for 5 years and a rebuild 20 miles age but it has no tax or mot
Any advice I would appreciate

Danny

welcome!    Do you have a link to the said car??

nearly every R5 out there for sale has supposedly had a recent engine rebuild so just make sure that the seller can prove it to you with reciepts of parts, pics of work etc

So did you buy it then??.....if so, first dibs on the standard wheels  :lol:
 
Looks like a little work is needed to have it back to its best - but we all love a project on here!

I only said it needed a little :D. Which was only the  obvious bits!

I was referring to the floor mounted sideskirts and ripped seat... Not much I know, but without mot who knowz what it needs to be road worthy again.

Congrats on getting a great colour!!
Fingers crossed for you its not much to have it boosting again  :mrgreen:
