heard that before mate :lol: im still telling my missus the same thing,i think we should start up a r5 anonymous (i cant stop buying shiney bits for my 5) :lol:  :lol:  :lol:

 lol..  :D  there really should be a number you can ring when your having a weak moment!  These cars are giant money boxes...  but theres never any money inside when u need it!



So true, if i had a 1 for every time i said that to the missus about my 5 it WOULD be finished. lol.

 lol... I can go a while without buying anything... but I start to get the judders and then I spend twice as much as I intended to start with  :roll:

 V6 is a great car...  I think its called illard blue and its stunning ... (is it the ph2 V6 your after?) I advise this is a better option if u can reach the little extra it costs I dont think they'll lose much value as they have reached that level now  :)

 I had a Ph1 V6 before they made the ph2... had it almost 3 years and sold it just before the warrenty run out and the clutch was almost in need to replacement....so I timed that just right!  :D

 I changed the suspension the k-Tecs KW varient 3 coilovers.. decat the zorts..carbon induction kit..  and a few other bits..  

 



 Good luck finding a nice tidy example mate :)

Yes,  the ph1 was a good car.. but the ph2 is far better and I also love that blue...it just looks so right in that colour.  You've got good taste  8)

I used to go for a drive in the V6...and get home and go straight out again in the 5GTT...    as they are so different...I wanted the buzz from the turbo after the V6..lol.

 The V6 weighs quite a bit... i think its around 1400kg but its full of luxury...  air con...  big heavy comfortable seats... but its a joy to drive... you can drive over pot holes in the road and not even feel them!  I would describe it as 'silky smooth'  you look at the speedo and its going past 80mph without any effort,  the gear changes just glide into gear and it goes well.... and sounds fantastic with the engine right behind your ears!  being rear wheel drive and all that weight over the rear wheels/fat tyres... you will put all the power down without any wheel spin even in the wet 8) But unless you've owned a V6 (either ph1 or ph2) you'll not realise the feeling you get driving it...  a real experience...  almost like a supercar experience (I know that sounds over the top.. but is a special motor) but saying that..  I did always feel it needed more power to match the style.

 The 5 is completely different and very raw (its more of a toy...and a big grin factor..but I dont need to explain about that on here..lol)  stipped out of all the unnecessary bits you dont need it weighs around 780kg  (which isnt far off 1/2 the weight of the V6!) which is why its such a grin to fly along when the turbo kicks in and all hell breaks loose..lol  :lol:   and it feels a lot faster than the V6 for sure!  But...  I have a performance meter... both cars were pretty equal as at the time I had 13" speedlines on the car...and they would just light up and spin off the line... where as the V6 would get all the grip down and not lose any time.. my 5 was prob about 160bhp and on the standard T2 turbo at the time.

 The V6 wasnt totally standard tho...  I had a decat... BMC carbon filter..  superchipped.. so it was a bit up on standard. I also bought wizard of Nos N20 kit for it! but thank fook I sold the car before I fitted it and blew the thing up! (I was starting to realise...I was going too far...and it was time to move on) I sold it and got a Clio 182 which was the newer shape at the time and tuned the 5 up a bit more.

 If you had a 5 tuned upto nearer 200bhp... it was eat the V6 alive.. but you have 2 totally different cars to contend with... luxury V's raw thrills.
