    The Tassie car seems to be a pretty honest vehicle and the seller has been upfront with what needs to be done and what has been done. All of the work that has been done is a standard checklist of...

    Richard, what you say is correct, but the cloth Quartet seats came on our AM90 models. The GTi in question is an AM89 model so should have Monaco. AU spec GTi's Series 1 (Phase 1) -> Oct 87...

    Based on what can be seen and what it is registered as, specifically Month/Year of manufacture, it appears to be just a high mileage S2 GTi with some cosmetic changes. Need to see VIN tattoed on...

    306 8v are suitable and come with a extra bracing to reduce the chance of cracking... presumably. Most of the original (unbraced) 205 GTi manifolds are probably all have cracks. Also I believe...

    Roland liked post by ng850 On thread : replacing O2 sensor on 306 - what a difference
    Yep, that's the easiest way to do it. The main diff between the various actual sensors is the number of wires, the heater wattage and whether it's a narrow or wide band. The Jetronic DFZ used a...
