I'll definately be up for getting my black turbo to stoneleigh - I'll bring some extra BBQ coals and if you want me to organise some hot girlies in short skirts i can get these too... ! ! ! ! !

(survey continue'd - i'm 30yrs young)

Thanks - Andy

Hopefully that will be two black turbo's.

For the record I'm 36 years old/young depending on mood.

Hiya guys, I'm another 5exi owner to add to your list. My 1.4 K-series orange car is now finally fully built and 100% road legal. Its taken ages to sort out all the forms and paperwork with the DVLA but I got the number plates made up and put them on last week. Just a little over two years total build time from when I first picked up the kit from Marlin. I'd definately be interested in bringing it along to stoneleigh or another show and meeting some fellow builders next spring. The bodywork still needs a massive amount of polishing and theres some general neatening up to be done and this would make a good excuse to get on and do it.

Also thanks to everyone whos puts posts on the forum. I've not put many on myself during the build but the ones I've read proved very useful at times. Just for the record aswell I'm 23 (hence the 1.4 for insurance) so definately the car does attract young people.

Hi all!
Firstly I must apologies as this is the first post I have committed in and I have been building my 5exi for just under 1 year now!

If I have my car finished and SVA before then I will defiantly come on down. I’m building a 1.8 VVC , with doors in black, and its all going well apart from electrics….

As for age I think the 5exi is one for younger builders… I’m only 20, building it on the cheap with my student loan….don’t now how I’m going to get insurance….

If not finished I will probably pop along just to see some other cars if nothing else!
