“Over the years I have owned 5 peugeot 205 GTI's...”

Written on: 25/11/2010

Over the years I have owned 5 peugeot 205 GTI's starting off with the 1.6 which was an eye opener to its performance and potential.
The build quality isn't bad considering its little more than a baked bean can, and the repairs are simple to fix / replace.
But the performance is simply fantastic on the standard 1.6/1.9 variants it has a power delivery similar to a 2 stroke motorcycle engine.
I now own a bit of a street sleeper, which I have tastefully modified (I can hear all you pureists… Read Full Review

Written on: 19/11/2010

It has been a pleasure to own and drive a 205 GTI 1.9 1994 for nearly two years now. The car was bought in Feb 2009 and have had three previous owners and a nearly complete service history.

Apart from regular maintenance I've only had one major problem - a blown head gasket. This was fixed and at the same time I had a race cam fitted, the head ported / polished and a K&N air filter fitted. The engine is transformed - it revs much quicker, spins much more freely and pulls way stronger above… Read Full Review

I've been driving for seven years now, and for 6 of them years ive had a 205 gti's.
My first was a 1.6 gti which i loved for 3 years was lovely to drive and had sensible power for a novice driver.
Then i brought a 1.9 gti, still to this day that was the best car i've driven. It had the handling, power and Reliability, never realy had problems with it! Loved it!
Now i have a rebuilt turbo technics 205, not the best for Practicality or reliability but would not change it! I have driven a mk2 golf… Read Full Review

Written on: 30/11/2008 by russ205 (1 review written)

I bought my Peugeot 205 GTi 1.9 about a month ago for £1600 with 170,000 on the clock but had been fitted with a recon engine in 2001 and that had only done 24,000 in the last 7 years! It has the up rated ECU on it so problems with the idling isn ' t a problem. I love the car and its power is amazing for the age of the car. In the past few weeks I have looked over mine ready for its MOT and found, both boots of the anti-roll bar links at the front ripped. One track rod end boot ripped, (then… Read Full Review

Written on: 25/09/2007 by mattmk1 (1 review written)

This is one of those cars that everybody has to own. I'd wanted one for years, and the wait was worth it. I doubt anyone will ever understand the 205 GTI, unless they have driven one. It was, in my mind, a final flurry of craziness in a politically correct world. You're aware of how thin the panels are, and the engine sounds like a bag of spanners on idle. The steering is ridiculously heavy. And then you pull away, and when you escape the city, suddenly everything makes sense. I've never driven… Read Full Review

I've still got the mighty 205 GTi monster I love it spent a bit of money on keeping it on the road (just wear and tear) but saying that its the best car I've had. Only problem - it's off the road the now need a back axle.

hi, i am thinking of buying a 205 gti, i am tempted with the 1.9 engine because there isnt really much diffrence in my insurance. Are threre any things i should look out for when buying one? i have heard the the back axles can be dodgey.

Written on: 19/09/2006 by dave66 (21 reviews written)

Many years ago, when they were still being made (and therefore desirable) I drove to Paris in one of these. It was very fast, and looked great. Twenty years ago, along with the Ford Sierra, this car opened up a fresh new wave of car design. Now they are being driven by the kind of people who would have once looked at it with envious eyes, and I doubt there's one left in the entire country that hasn't been thrashed almost to death… Read Full Review
