Renault 5 diesel

Car No. 13
From 02/01/2006 to 01/06/2006

Back in The Netherlands after my Australian travel I needed a car again. I found an ad for a Renault 5 diesel, and it was so cheap I couldn’t leave it there.

The diesel exhausts a lot of soot when you accelerate, and I occasionaly found some fresh oil drips on the floor after parking (but strangely enough the oil level remained steady), the car was very cheap to drive with an efficiency of 19 kilometre to 1 liter.

For only 33 euros I changed the boring white-grey colour of the car to something much brighter, which attracted a lot of attention. Even with this new colour scheme I managed to sell the car just before I went to the United States.
