My 5
« on: 21:26, Tue 08 February 2011 »
So iv been into five for allmost ten years now, but haven't spent to much time behind the wheel of one,but enough to be hooked
Spent about a year driving my first one before i decided to strip it down and send it to the bodyshop, didnt quite work out,The guy was a nob to say the least, anyway long story short it sat there about year and half and then he turns around and say its not worth fixing after he had me get alot of new parts for it
So kinda lost interest then for awhile untill recently, i bought a campus with gt kit on it,was going to turn it into a turbo
But a gt poped up for sale in my fav coulor, so went straight down and bought it

Anyway here it is few days after i bought it





So went about changing engine and when i was taking off bumper the mounting points came away with it and front panel is rotten
Had allready got a front panel for my first one and i took the other 2 panels off it aswell which were suprisingly not to bad
Bit more work than i expected but i got alot of free time at the moment

Here what iv done so far

Common question, yet i have no idea.

What i did was take my oil feed and turbo to Pirtek, they made something there and then. Less then 5.
