    Default How is your knowledge on 205 gti's ???

    Trying to ascertain when Peugeot changed the coolant tank from the round yellowish one to the black square one.
    It happened on series threes i think.
    Mine is an early series 3 [March 92 ]

    JR, the black tank pic I sent you is off my 91. my May 93 has the round opaque unit. Either aftermarket or the company slaps on what is handy?

    ps. I am not sure that March 92 is exactly early. I think 2 of S3's are 91's

    Cheers for that Ash. Thats exactly what i thought would be the case however wanted to confirm. Thus it could be either.
    To add to the Company's mix n match mine is an opaque SQUARE one LOL

    I don't think anybody can be accused of not putting on the 'correct' one anyway.

    They went back and fourth from memory as the black one tend to crack. Some do some dont.

    Classics I think came with the round tanks Fwiw. Ive had a 93 with a round and a 91 with a black. A mates Nov build 93 has a black one with a plastic inlet.

    Yep, I think the square black one was introduced with the Phase 2 (Series 3) vintage and they reverted back to presumably the more expensive white spherical model later in the years. The Classic I know has this white spherical model.

    Every one I've seen, including my Miami, 92 I think, has been round white, except for the black one one of Ashleys.
