Sad to sell my Silver R5 GTT
« on: 18:36, Thu 08 July 2010 »
After a few months of ummin and arrrin i finally plucked up the courage to sell my R5 and within the 7 day auction on ebay and posts on pistonheads i had 12 offers and then the first viewer to come and see the car bought it.

Now ive got myself another french hot hatch, a Graphite Grey 205 1.9 GTi, in mint condition may i say, but after the first pressure wash the laquer on the roof has started to come off !!!! BLOODY PRESSURE WASHERS !!!!!

But altho i aint got a R5 GTT anymore i still hold an extremely soft spot for them and will eventually buy another but will wait for a nice clean example !!!!

Post pics up of your 205, i have had 3 of them.  8)

The peeling lacquer is common, both my blue and grey ones suffered from cracked/peeling lacquer. The flat colours seem to be better.
