Well hearing she had bought a 205 gti I was slightly worried as my sisters know nothing about cars tbh and Is usually attracted to bags of nails.

I went to see the 205 she had purchased and to be honest….. I loved it haha…. It cost her ..get this…£750!!!!

It’s a limited edition 205 1.6gti in sorentto green
Its had goodwood leather seats put into it.
6 alloy wheels wll with new tyres.
Full exhaust system magnex,
Lowered -25mm on spax
THEN….JUST TO TAKE THE BISCUIT

He showed me the paper work… then engine had been rebuilt 200 mile ago at a cost of
£3,000.

Lightend and balanced everything possible
Ported and polished.
Cams
Induction kit.

I dunno LOADS AND LOADS…. So at this point im quite impressed.

Went on a drive….. Goes very well….. Just slower than the 2.0 si… up to about 6000rpm then the short pause before
Rocketing to 8500rpm… ITS MAD for a 1.6…. Will easily eat my 2.0 :(
Handles like a beast and just sounds amazing.

This is with the standard management and he had an aftermarket one which he borrowed and with that on…
It would EASILY dust off 2.0mi16 ones.. It FLEW.

Not happy cuz now she has a faster car and it was cheaper…it older but ….sorta better looking… she wont drive it like that though I know.

Ill get some picsss for people :)

I've not been in a 205 actually. A friend had one but it was broken more often than not so I never got a ride :doh: His 16v S1 106 kept him happy though. The 1.9 GTi is supposed to be the pinnacle of hot hatches of that generation.

This is substantially true, my mate had a Gunmetal special edition 205 1.9 gti and it was fantastic, it was an absolute minter id never seen one so mint

It had fresh paintwork, and alloys and a few little touches, and it was great to go in, but he swapped it in for a modified corsa and some cash :iagree: :doh:

No getting away from the fact it was one of the best of its generation

The general consensus is first gen 1.9 206 GTI > second gen Clio Williams > third gen Honda ITR > fourth gen ? Renault R26.R?

I always said I'd own a 205 GTi at some point. Seems around the best time to buy with prices being lower and it become a contemporary classic.
