    1.9 205 GTi is still in my opinion one of those cars that's just an absolute hoot to drive. A nice example that's not been bounced of a lamp post is a very cool car.

    The 205 is one ugly little frogmobile. Seriously uncool, sorry lads. (well not sorry exactly, cos I meant it, but hey :) )

    It was fast in its day, but even if a dog turd could propel itself at 125mph, it would still be a dog turd...

    My love for 205 GTI's is infinite !

    I've been there and done that, heres my old one through its various stages (it ended up all black), it had Billies' all round Group N ARB and drop links, adjustable lower arms, a full quick shift kit (it took me an age to find the lever!), cam and induction kit, it sounded looooovely! -

    It didn't end very well (this was the week before christmas), so my only advice is do NOT crash haha ! Ironically my mum had bought me a Roll Cage for christmas :(...

    However, I would buy another one in a flash ! anybody who says they are unreliable is simply wrong, I used mine to travel from Basingstoke to Plymouth to see my girlfriend twice a week and I used to bang it up to triple figures and murder it all the way there and it never missed a beat!

    Ever owned one ? I'm guessing not by your gun hoe uneducated attitude...

    The 205 GTi is definitely cool. I used to have a 1.6Gti, it was completly standard but still so much fun on twisty country roads. There was a new squeak or rattle every day but it never let me down.

    Cool cars. I had a 1.6GTI and later fitted the 1.9 engine into it (my ancient guide to the engine swap is still on 205gtidrivers website which I put more effort into writing that countless essays and dissertations!).

    Stunning example :respekt:

    I had 4 205's too, 2 white GTi's, 1 black GTi, and one red XS - loved them all.

    Also had a couple of 106's and a couple of 306's lol
