Well at last i can put some pics up of my new car.

Its going to take me about 18months to 2years to get this how i want it but before that its going on a couple of trackdays so i can see how it handles.

Its a XR4i 2.8ltr 150bhp (when new). Its a car i have wanted since i was a child. Its not to everybodys taste but i love them and the RS500 but as i couldnt afford a 500 the 4i will do.

At the moment its standard but when its finished i hope to have a scorpio cosworth engine in it (want to try and stay away from the turbo mod).

Not sure on the colour might be blue with 17" white 5 spoke alloys and a side exit zorst but i will see as project 4i moves











Its does have someproblems like the bottom ends rattling at 4grand so need to replace the bigends before the trackday and the breaks a worse then the bm but it will all come together and unlike the bm i will be keeping this and having no moments of madnass and swapping for a boring car.

Have a look outside the tattoo place in New Ferry down the road from Motorvation, the blokes got an XR4i kitted like an RS500.
Looks nice, they're becoming classics as well.

loving the cult classic style. just something about the 3 door sierras that makes you think "thats gonna be fast".

Good choice.
