1991 Renault 5 GT Turbo 1.4 turbo petrol from UK and Ireland
Be jealous, it is well worth the gamble!!!!!
Needed a new service kit for the carb and a full tune.
New exhaust and tyres, so far that is it!
Got this car for under a grand (previously stolen and recovered, but that was when it was 1 year old).
Mine was lowered too much, which resulted in unwanted banging from the back end (pardon the pun). It was very noisy, had to have it raised.
My mate has a Sierra Cosworth, and he can't get away from me, so it's got to be good!!!! Very, very fast, but at a cost, since I got the car it is only doing about 21 MPG. Is this normal? I don't drive like an idiot all the time??
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I noticed that in your review you mentioned that you're only getting 21MPG... I've got the same problem and I know for a fact that it isn't normal... when I drive normally (under 3000 revs) it still only does about 21MPG... it's costly & not right... I think the air fuel ratio needs doing!
