Hi all

I have joined today to start my new quest.. to once again own and play in a gt. i had a p12 gt with high miles but sweet engine.

 I broke mine and had to sell it as scrap, it still hurts. the gearbox blew while 'playing' with a m3 mind u it did have an idiot driver in it, you know the ones who can hit the throttle in a straight line but when it comes to cornering and keeping the line....... he was crap.... he did leave laughing as i wimpered....... as gear oil slowly oozed from my baby.

that was 2 years ago, i havent had the dosh to go find another gt in the condition i want it.

now for the advise......

is the p11 or p12 the better to drive, ie tuck in and hold!!

what mods should i steer clear of if its not me whos fitted them?

any tips on sorting a stronger gear box, i understand they can be weak, ha ha.

where is a good place to look for sweet ones as they are becoming rare now..other than ebay!!

many thanks all and hope to be driving a gt soon............ i do need help cause i am stuck with a volvo.................!!

I stand corrected.

I ment saloon or hatch p11 i guess

I have read on here lots of posts most seem to say saloon is better, but also more rare.

my target would be either a bronze gt(if they did a saloon limited edition in bronze xmas come early!!)

yea read for sale posts am still looking.

thanks tho

Grim - you wind up!  I think you already have a queue of people for the Ginger (incl me!). 
 
thedukes055 - good luck with the search.  Can you see the cars for sale section - not sure whether you can or can not see it if you are not a paying member.

search the normal places autotrader ,piston heads, ect. wouldnt worry about mileage to much as cars of this vintage need jugdeing on there own merit rather than mileage ect.
