Cool New Kid on the Block

Hi all!

Thanks to a blat out in BigRichs Exi (I did note the drop of the 5 on your decals ) I finally committed and I have now placed a deposit down for my own Exi at Stoneleigh this year.

So I thought I had better introduce myself to the forum!

I know there is another guy out there who has also recently purchased a new Exi as well, so hopefully this is marking the revival of the beast and we will see a boom in our numbers!

With all of this literature on this forum already, I'm sure every question has already been answered, but who knows, i might find something new to ask you all!

Welcome to the forum.

Quite a few 5exi owners on here.

What engine are you going for?

Also, if you put your location in your profile. There may be another owner close to you.

Bit old now, but there was a nap of owners.

Hi limpabit, I'm assuming you administer the 5exi members map? If yes, can you add me in?

Sorry for the slow reply! I've got a new job as well and the days seem to just be shooting past at the moment!

Originally I was hoping to get a 2.0l Ecoboost engine in there, but whilst it was feasible, the cost of getting all the parts from multiple donors etc. just kept mounting up, and I was looking at an additional 10k to get it on the road.

So instead i'm going for the 1.8t 20v set up, I'm currently trawling the classifieds for a Seat Leon Cupra R to use as a donor.

I love your car Cees, it looks gorgeous in orange!
