Very nice, an old Ph1 as well.

Not sure about the grill though, but I've always thought these cars look there best with everything left original.

i know what your saying bout the grill but the original one on it was red so never looked good and bought this for 1.99+p&p off ebay as its the right colour, im gonna wait till i have some spray work done then get it sprayed too, as the laquer has peeled on the roof and needs some tlc so will be soon, i can feel the money leaving my wallet already :(  

but yeah phase 1 and in good condition too..... just in the process of doing a cambelt and water pump as no paperwork for one in the service history since 2006  :roll:  and cant trust previous owners saying they done one !!!!!

but all in all a good little motor and got it on classic car insurance too, so its nice and cheap like the R5's.

I do like the little 205 gti's especially in white or the British racing Green, one of the bloke's local to me has a white one with polished 1.9 alloys  he has removed the 1.9 lump and stuck a 2.0 8v turbo engine out of xantia in it goes really well 220bhp as standard engine to which is all he runs it at on the orignal xantia ecu.  Cheap engine to source and put in from what he was saying think the downsize was fitting a decent size rad in and a decent intercooler as he wanted grill mount so he went for the decent intercooler.

Ive been reading up about certain engine transplants and now im on the look out for a 306 gti-6 for a transplant to the 205, did see some people have put the 2l turbo lump in, its a toss up between the 2l turbo and the gti-6, some people have the old mi16 lump in them but there a hard engine to find these days,

The GTI-6 engine is basically the Mi16 engine, a few years later obviously.
