new boy
« on: 15:01, Sun 14 December 2008 »
afternoon peps

im new to the forum and turbos so bare with me.

iv been a fan of r5's since i can remember, now i finaly have one altho im not aloud it yet as its a x-mas pressie from the missis.

got it from a bloke down the road from me, i used to see it everyday on the way to work, then i saw it for sale on friday night and bought it last night.

it need a bit of tlc but it drives and the turbo works, its got tax till the end of april but the mot runs this month, needs new head lining, the drivers seat is worn and a new tailgate is needed (may get away with bending it back).

im 99% sure it has'nt had the arse ragged off it as the bloke was in his 50's and has owned it for the last ten years.

the best bit was the price 200

will get a few pics in a bit

Good find man  :D
You'll want to look out for rusty sills and bumper mounts, and around the screen. I think it might tell you a good bit in the 'Buying an R5' bit on the left.
