Whats the difference between a "Sport" and a "+" models?

Looking forward to these getting down to $25-30K mark for an early one with the 4.2 V8. Would be great fun with a manual trans.

Iíve been a big fan of the GT coupe ver since I owned a 1986 one (manual in red!) as a young man 25 years ago - unfortunately I wasnít able to afford the upkeep of it as a daily driver, and sold it to my everlasting regret..

Luckily I was able to find another one a few years ago in mint condition - 1986, red, manual, spent most of its easy life undercover with original 165kís on it. Totally love i5 as a weekend driver, love the sound, and it just sings at 4,000rpm

Never selling again..

Just seeing who else has these out there - I believe thereís less than 40 left on the road in the UK!

I'm hugely jealous right now. I had a pre-purchase inspection done on this very car back in 2012 - was very very very close to purchasing it - but couldn't quite afford the asking price considering I was already stretching and needed to bring it back from ChCh. Glad to see it's being loved up here in Auckland.

I still regret not buying it. If you ever change your mind about selling - let me know  :'(

Looks like the insurance has made a calculated decision.
Sell the car in its current state and put that towards the payment to the owner rather than repairing and risking possible blowouts if things don't go as planned.

I feel like it took inspiration from this

Need to replace rear discs and pads. Any advice on what to use. I am told aftermarket options like Brembo discs are harder metal than Audi discs and can be not as good. What do you recommend to go for as replacement??

To be fair, i used RDA discs (grooved) from Australia and EBC Red stuff ceramic pads. Even at stage 2, i don't fee like it isn't enough braking power.

Good stuff, that's enterprising and there's nothing stopping anyone else doing the exact same thing.

This seems to be happening regularly now. A car appears at a not-unreasonable price, disappears, re-appears a little later at a jacked-up price at a dealer.

Some later MK5s are MK60EC1 too.

You need the right duosensor (Check ETKA for your year, but the same sensor was often used on AWD and hill hold equipped FWD cars, stanadard ESP FWD cars used a different sensor) AND a compatible ABS module for a FWD car. Your module probably isn't capable.
