Phase 1 or raider for restoration
« on: 09:29, Sat 02 October 2010 »
hey guys,
I'm looking for a R5 GTT for a restoration project, I cant decide if I want to do a phase 1 or a raider. Found both cars for sale that need restoration but not sure what one to go for. Which ever i choose will end up 100% original.

whats peoples thoughts?

Both are just as good as the other mate, in the end there both 5 gt turbo's but different colour!  :D

I do like a Raider but a good Electric blue phase 1 are nice too.

I've won the auction above for the phase 1, is there much mechanical difference between the phase 1 and 2? Just looking around, even shocks seem to be different?

There are small differences with cooling system. It's mainly cosmetics, the kit is slightly different and the interior is different.
