    Default Performance GTi mag......

    Anyone noticed this in the library (also known as the newsagents)? I happened to see it on the shelf this morning. It appears to be a UK based publication focusing on French manufacturer GTi's - which can't be a bad thing. One of their feature cars is a GTi6 engined 206 with cam work, head work, and throttle bodies claiming to get 240bhp - I guess this is an extrapolation of the ATW's figures. One point was that they claimed to have LOST 13bhp by fitting the GTi6 exhaust headers!

    Oh, I didn't buy the mag - it was $13.20!!!!

    Yeh Sydney - I guess I'll go and update my location description now hey?!!!

    Other interesting cars were supercharged frogs - 18inch wheel frogs - the usual 'stereo heavier than the suspension can handle' frogs, plus lots of adds for performance gear to fit frogs in general.

    I didn't buy it 'cause the production quality wasn't up to the standards you might expect for 13 bucks, but then again, if I find it cheaper at another library........

    Next time can you check who is the publisher/Aust Distributor. Sometimes hard to order without that info.

    It's distributed by Gordon and Gotch (which distribute practically every imported car title downunder )

    Select the Motoring & Transport category and you'll find Performance GTI. According to the site it's sold nationwide, even in Tasmania and the Northern Territory!

    SO does the June2003 Issue!

    We gave you a taster of this WRC-inspired 206 in the last issue, and now we bring you the full feature. Cosworth powered, 385bhp and four-wheel drive, Dimma can build you one for about 35k! Read our world exclusive right here and get a free poster with your issue of PGTi.
    and

    INDEPENDENCE DAY
    This 200bhp 106 turbo is owner Paul Adams' first real car. It cost him 22k all together, but we reckon it's money well spent.
    Finally:

    PLUS
    The Peugeot Sport Club head to Bruntingthorpe Proving Ground to see who has the quickest Pug. We bring you the highlights of the recent Paris Tuning Show, plus all the latest club reports and much, much more.
    I think I may start buying this mag
