    I've had a note under the wiper and a copper once asked if I wanted to sell when I was filling up at a servo.

    I did not expect him to say that as he eyeballed me from across the driveway and then slowly crawled over in his unmarked vehicle either. I was looking up at the clouds whistling a tune and trying not to make eye contact but he still rolled down the window and started talking to me.

    thats classic.

    Must admit that every time I've been pulled over, the officers are professional and good to have a chat too. Waiting for the day one tells me he has one hes restoring.

    Also, the 205 has been getting a fair bit of decent press through Wheels et al which is probably driving interest (and prices) upwards...

    I've just dived back into the 205GTi pool by acquiring a pristine 1990 S1.5, white with only 148,000 km on the clock, but I did pay a fair price for it, recognizing it as a good car having done a little work on it over the years. The previous owner even kept nitrogen in the tyres! Apart from a Remus exhaust and Koni adjustables it is stock, so I believe it is worth redoing the front seats and stripping the rear beam for checking, despite its apparent tautness. Ultimately I expect to make a modest profit.

    Regrettably I am torn between my attraction to Mitsubishi VR4s and GTOs ( I have 2 and 1 respectively) of the same generation and the Pug, so my declining energies are split between them. As a daily driver, I will take the VR4, with its lounge comfort, AWD and climate control. Away from home, from Braidwood to Batemans Bay the Pug is king, but uphill from Batemans Bay to Braidwood, particularly if it is damp, the GTO is brilliant.

    Put some decent tires on that Pug and you might change your mind.

    Only driven 1 205 GTI ... It was standard and in good condition apparently .... It easy also for sale at the time and I was looking to add to the garage .... I'd driven my S16 from the bay to canberra for the test drive.
    I was underwhelmed to say the least... Noisy, heavy and obviously slower.... I'm sure the gokart handling was there but I have a gokart already ...
    Ive kept the S16 with its great engine, comparable chassis balance, better brakes, climate control, power steering, ease of getting parts and ultimately rarer status....
    From Batemans bay to canberra anything with 4wd and a turbo is king... You can't compete with the torque delivery for those uphill climbs.... The curse of the rev friendly NA 4 cyl...

    If you did find a minter to mothball for 10 years, how would you set up the car?Remove wheels etc? Would all the rubbers etc disintegrate without use?

    I had a young guy about my age (21) take a photo of mine today while I was driving - proves there are still some younger people like myself who appreciate these things. I also occasionally get people catching up to me and giving me the thumbs up.

    I choose to keep my gti as original as I can in the hope that it does fetch a higher price when I eventually decide to sell it, but despite burning a larger hole in my pocket I'm gonna try hold onto it for as long as I can. At the end of the day it is such an enjoyable thing to have!

    Interesting. Maybe values are firming. The SA car looked lovely, but after spending $10k for that car there would still be money to be spent - the A/C doesn't work, it had a phase 2 grey dash in a phase 3 car (a BIG pain to fix if you are fussy), the timing belt was due, and there was no mention of the rear beam having been done.

    I paid $9.5k for mine 18 months ago. It was one of the last 2 ever sold in Australia, only 84k on the clock, one owner from 1995 to when I bought it and, apart from evidence that it's had a scrape down the passenger side at some stage, extremely original. I've since spent more than that again to bring it back to perfect - respraying a couple of sections of paint that were chipped or starting to lift, new bumper, rear beam and all suspension bushes etc re-done with Peugeot original parts, timing belt and water pump done, recommissioning the A/C, chasing various little bits of trim that weren't perfect, fixing brakes that had sat unused for several years etc etc. Gezza's offer of up to $18k for a top car is the closest I've seen to a prospect of getting most of my money back. I did think about it for a sec, but haven't picked up the phone....

    That little silver one looked like a honest project for someone...wonder what it sold for.

    Rear beams and cam belt service always worth it if you are going to do it right. Two jobs well worth learning how to do.

    Ahh - Well I'm going to guess that, if it is otherwise as nice as it looks, the s3 should go for something starting with an 8. That would give you room to get A/C fixed, do timing belt, source a dash the right colour and maybe a do couple of other odds and ends and have a really nice, sorted s3 for about $12k - which I think is about the right money. I think it would be worth buying because really good S3s (or any good 205) are just so difficult to find - the people like me who have spent the money to get the car in really top condition just won't sell them because it's not worth it.

    My perception is that s1 and s2 cars are playing in a slightly different market. At the moment you'll never get more than $7k for a really top s1 or s2 (Dave T's car ( 1990 205 GTi with 137,500k's for sale ) was the best s2 that I can remember being advertised for a long time and it was about that money).

    Which I suppose goes to my point that we therefore don't expect to see it on the market any time soon!

    Perhaps appropriate value for a well sorted 16V could be a separate topic. I think it should be significantly higher than an equivalent condition car in standard spec, but many others seem to disagree

    im 17 turning 18 and I cop so much crap from others my age for owning a Peugeot. that is until the get a ride and 9/10 time they change their mind and walk away with a pale face. I get pulled over more than P plater commodores. I don't drive like an idiot, they must be curious more than anything.

    No, I believe a well presented, low km original car is always going to pull top dollar, regardless of the marque or model.

    Totally agree, as someone who follows classic car values in particular an original car is always the most sought after even in racecars.

    Maybe it's just a matter of time

    the rarer it gets the more its value will climb.
    e.g : New & Used Mazda RX-3 cars - Find Mazda RX-3 cars for sale - carsales.com.au

    also this quattro has been sitting here for a while now, it was at $37,000 last time i checked, now its at $35,000.. maybe he's asking too much
    1983 Audi quattro quattro


    I'm always keeping an eye out for a relatively cheap 205 in my area that needs work, heck or even importing a Clio W one day when i can afford to
