Agreed, bad seating position! I still have my Quiksilver, and the pedals are offset to the right which plays havoc with my surgically corrected back.
Build quality is pretty pants, but it is a good drive and is good looking!
Used to be a frequent user of www.206info.co.uk a knowledgeable site!
The GTi's are quick for a 138bhp car, and do handle ok, plenty of lift-off oversteer like the 205's and predictable understeer when pushed to the max, not that I ever did with mine of course!
