Light responsive/nippy ,comftable very very fun to muck about in , spongy brakes ,good econ great at 1st cars but easy car to get carried away in as a young driver. Keep an eye on rust .... the police don't leave you alone they all tell you to scrap it an it ain't worth the money to fix it and stuff, they just treat you like a boy racer but to be honest driving them you cant help but blitz it through the little backroads and marshlanes… Read Full Review

It handles like a go-kart and sticks to the road like a fly. Engine parts and a few other bits are easy to get hold of as the 106 xs is the same car underneath and the cars weight is like a feather. Cheap tax, cheap insurance - what more could you want from a hot hatch? Get one now whilst they are cheap and look after it for a investment… Read Full Review

Written on: 18/04/2007 by tez2284 (1 review written)

The Citroen AX GT is a great cheap car to whizz about in, but would recommend a break upgrade as they just don't feel safe at anything over 30 mph, the car is great on fuel as I've found out. This car will beat most cars up to 1.8 litre as it has excellent acceleration and great handling in the twisties, so all round it's a great little car for just getting you from a to b, or thrashing it down your local back roads… Read Full Review

Written on: 12/02/2006 by tompaltridge (1 review written)

I have a Citroen AX GT 500 and was wondering if anyone could give me some advice regarding engines. I'm looking into putting a 1587cc TU series Saxo VTR block ino the car. I have seen other GT's with this conversion but running on carbs (twin webber 40's i believe?) so do you swap the MPi head from the VTR with the existing GT head from my 1360cc engine? Will they fit? If you can run that set up, do the webbers require a specialist manifold/custom made? one last thing, does anyone know if a… Read Full Review

Written on: 22/11/2006

Alright mate, I'm currently in the middle of doing the same thing. I've got a 1.6 VTR black top with all ancillaries; also a 1.6 VTR silver top bottom end, and I have fitted a spare AX GT head to it. I bought a head gasket for a VTR cast bottom end aluminium head, lined up all the oil ways on the head and block to make sure they all lined up, which they do. Torqued the head down, fitted a 1.6 timing belt as shorter than 1.4 one's, which I found a bit backwards, but there you go. Turned the engine over several times to check that oil comes up through the block through the rocker arms, which it did, fitted all my AX GT distributor cap coil and thermostat and fuel pump. Fitted AX GT twin choke manifold and carb.
<br/>
<br/>That's as far as I've got so far. I'm gonna run the engine up on my engine stand to see if all is OK. When accomplished, I'll find out what gearbox I will need, as I'm gonna put a 4 stud conversion off a Saxo on. Then get the carb rejetted, and there you go.

Brill fun. My Citroen AX GT had a genuine 40 thousand on the clock and at a time was mint until my mate ran it up another car! Was the fastest standard about with just backbox and K and N filter was beatin 306 XSi 2.5 Vectras and chasing 306 GTi6 and Rallys very closely.

I've been driving just over 2 years now and I've owned an Escort and 2 Citroen AX GT's and now on my third. I can't stop driving them, no matter what car I'm in or driving I cant wait till I get back in one. At the moment I've got a fully kitted and modified red AX GT, it looks the dogs. I get so much attention from the car that it's starting to annoy me. if I were asked what car to buy it would most definitely be my first recommendation, just keep an eye on it and get it serviced and you… Read Full Review

I have owned 2 Citroen ax gts now. I have a gt500 now and they are miles better than the standard ax gt. I have had the head gasket go but what do you expect it's 13 years old. Also I have had to replace the driveshafts and cv joints but is worth it to see the look on the 205 gti boys and most other boy racers to that matter. The only things that do my ax are the big boys in there 200bhp turbos. In my opinion they are the most fun to drive and are cheap to get parts for and run. The only… Read Full Review

Ive owned 2 Citroen AX GT and they are little beautys. I may have to go for a third! Even though occasionally they can be known to break down when they do go they GO! Acceleration from 0-60 is unreal for such a small and it never seems to stop accelerating! Watch out for the handling though. Great little car, go out and give it a good hammering, trust me you will love it!… Read Full Review

Best mod for the AX at the moment is the VTS conversion. Not sure, but have heard a rumour that there is a VTS turbo been done. Whatever you decide, you won't regret getting one, like driving a go-kart!!!

This car is great fun for what it is and cheap to run.
<br>If your looking at a turbo kit you might as well just by a fiat uno turbo instead. I much prefered it to the ax and it is also much more tuneable, if you want a similar injection car, try a 205 1.6 gti, it\'s got better handling.

I have just brought a citroen Ax GT "covertible" the GT is very nippy and I can suprisingly burn off most boy racers mainly beacuse its so light weight and it has a soft top so its even more lighter.

Ive just sold of my first car - Citroen AX GT litre. so I thought i'd pay homage to the little beast here. My opinion is that due to its light body weight and close ratio box it is one of the quickest 1 litres ever! drove it hard for 2 1/2 years round shropshire country roads from 7000-40,000 miles and loved it. I could rant on all day about a car that is comparitively pretty rubbish but here goes.

You can do it yourself if you have the right equipment, but a garage would probably only charge about 20 quid or so to do it, and they would be able to do it with more accuracy. If either of them are out of adjustment you should notice a significant improvement in performance once corrected.

Wider wheels will give a lot more resistance and will cut down your top speed. However to a point they will give increased grip when accelerating and cornering so its a case of which do you want most, higher top end or faster cornering.

No chance it will be the big wheels, you will probably find that the rolling radius is only slightly bigger if not the same as the standard ones, with that it still couldnt be the wheels cos larger wheels equals higher top speed.
<br>There is a product called 10k boost that you spray into the carb, this is supossed to decoke the engine, but to do it properly you must remove the cylinder head. It might be worthwhile checking the fuel mixture and ignition timing as well.

Crusty bap. Your wheels are too big giving too much friction and wind resistance. Thats why your car is so slow. Oh and your exhaust probably weighs as much as a fully grown donkey too!!

Written on: 08/11/2004

That can't be right, just 95? my '89 GT has 80,000 on the clock and it hit 118 yesterday (on the speedo at least). It was still pulling hard at 6,500 rpm (no engine mods) and the only reason I didnt break 120 (or even 125) was the 40 mph roadworks that were coming up pretty quick.
<br>Filled my car up last night having been near the red for a while (funds were low) and it was acting strange on the throttle after that. Felt like the carb wasnt opening fully, but if I backed off for half a second it seemed to clear its throat and clear off. My mate reckons it could be sediment caught in the carb, anyone got any ideas?

When you remove the stepper motor from the throttle body, it won't sit properly when you put it back together. There is a small allen screw that touches the stepper motor, You need to unscrew it until the butterfly is shut when the throttle cable is not pulling. If your ax only does 95, take the head off and de-coke it. Mine hits the limiter at 115.

Dude, I have a GT500 with k+n and peco backbox and I got it to 125 without tuning it at a rolling road yet. Sounds like the high mileage could be causing your GT to bottle out at 95.

How about this then? Dont put a VTS engine in, go for a VTR (98bhp one), as u wont be killing yourself on insurance and u will be able to do 100mph down the sliproad before joining the motorway! Plus it sounds nicer - AXVTR

regarding tommycoles' accelerator problem, i owned an 1100cc n 1 day the throttle stuck open fully aal of a sudden, i found it to be the throttle cable, not sticking it was jumpin out of its sleeve, lift the bonnet and see if you can pull the cable away (up) from the bracket if u can u mite see dat wen it goes back down it can sit ova outside the bracket sleeve. if this does it, jus ring tie the outer cable to the bracket job done.
<br>
<br>it could also be, dont laugh, your floor mats!! due to the small area where the pedals are as u brake u may also be revving.
<br>
<br>or it could be a problem with iva a blocked jet in ur carb or blocked brather pipe, as i had to strip down n re build my carb.

i've got a problem with my 954cc AX. just wondering if anyone else has had any problems like this or if they know anything about it. It seems after about 20mins or so of driving the car accelerator goes nutz. e.g i pull up 2 the lights or slow down and the car just revs up fully. Its not the accelerator cable sticking and i've changed my stepper motor, iv been told it may be the sensors round the right side of the stepper.

Do you really think NOS is a good idea mate? Nos is mainly used in show cars, not road cars. Ive got a ax with a straight through pipe and KnN which gives the little car enough power for me! how much did you get the vts motor for?

Hi.
<br>
<br>I have a 1990 AX GT with 131,000 miles on the clock. Put a pipercross filter on it and a huge back box, plus it has 15" alloys.
<br>
<br>My question is, it tops out around 90 - 95 miles per hour, i thought as standard it would do at least 100, maybe 110?
<br>
<br>Can anyone shed any light on this for me?
<br>
<br>Thanks
<br>
<br>Crusty Bap

Im a mechanic myself and I am very interested in doing the vts conversion for my ax gt. How much did the vts engine cost?, were there any modifications such as engine mounts to be done?, do you uprate the driveshafts?, brakes?, I would be grateful for a posative responce.
