Loving the rims on the red one. Are they comp th?
Yes comp th's. 16 x 8's.
Stripped interior out on this one, it's running a Rs1800i 130bhp zetec lump.
The blue one's on 17 x 7.5 Borbet C's.
Running in a 2 litre zetec turbo lump.
I've always had orions and love the fact there so rare on the roads now.
Like a nice Onion Good choice with the Saphire Cosworth spoiler on the bootlid. Puzzled why yuou didn't opt for the 2 litre Zetec over the RS1800 unit as teh RS1800 never actually makes the claimed figures.
Do you use PassionFord.com ? Sure I recognise the red one from there
Life begins at 140mph
Sell my Audi??? Kiss my rings!
The 1800 turned up at the right price and they go straight in.
Yes I'm on passionford.
my dad used to have one of these with the spot lights in blue. it was a 1.6 ghia if i remember rightly. my mates used to be well jealous when i got picked up on a friday.

Oh and awesome job BTW matey. :D
I like them, I brought a cammed 1.6 ghia off my uncle for peanuts that he had sitting around because of a blocked injector. Abit of pro-boost in the fuel and it soon cleared a mile or 2 down the road. it had a set of 15's on it and clear indictors. it was the blue and silver edition. tbh I stripped it and scrapped it as it was only a temp car till my series 1 came on road, but it gave me smiles
