    Series II Question

    Hello,
    I am after a 205 GTI series II or III if possible.
    When did the Series I finish etc ?.
    I have had four GTI's before and really love the car.
    1984 1.6 Silver (Dublin)
    1988 1.9 Graphite(Dublin)
    1988 1.9 Red (Sydney)
    1992 1.9 Miami Blue (Sydney)

    Am after a dark colour or Miami blue

    You are going to get a few different answers to the S2/S3 question, i have even heard someone categorise the last models as a series 4.

    Probably best to know which model you are after and either ask the owner or go and see it. Basic mechanical differences are:

    14" wheels, 75kw motor, rear drum brakes, cloth seats: Roughly 1987 - 1991

    15" wheels, 90kw motor, rear disc brakes, part leather seats: Roughly 1990 - 1994

    Both under the guise of 1.9 GTi. Seems you have already owned one of both.

    Good luck with finding one, there seem to be a few choice examples of the 90kw model around at the moment.

    HI Guys,

    I have a series two 205 GTi 1990. This was the first of the series two (90kw motor, white blinkers, rear discs). The rear drum model stopped in 1990. Hope this cleans up some confusion. The 205 Si was the 91 with the rear drums.
