Newbie here from Australia
« on: 06:42, Sun 07 June 2009 »
Hey All,
Dont know how many other R5 owners on here from Australia....i may be the only one !! At last i've achieved !! :D
The R5 is a super rare car here in OZ and i believe only 4 others exist so obtaining parts is going to be fun me thinks.
Its only arrived from the UK last week and now sits besides the GTA which i imported to OZ the year before.
Cant get the Ren. turbos out of the blood.
Thats enuff from me....cheers to all  members.

Thanks for the heads up Baz. Yep she wont rust in the hot weather over here but it brings another problem with it.....the R5 tendency to over heat will be even more crucial now.
Its hot even on Winter days where i live.
Next week i'll do a coolant change and add Redline to it as well....that should keep the temps down a bit.

Cool! I know of a guy on RTOC who lives in Oz, and he has a yellow one.

Do you have any pics of yours? :)
