    Default What are the major differences the 205 GTI & 205 SI?

    Just wanted to know if there were any major differences between the two besides the engine? i.e suspension, weight, build etc. Thanks in advance.

    Front suspension different Goggle GTi and Si front suspension Images, spring rates and shocks different (Lighter than GTi). Wheels on Si are only 13"

    That's a start on major differences. :-)
    Present fleet:-
    Peugeot 93' 205 Gti 16v
    Peugeot 73' 504 Ti from new
    Peugeot 08' 407 Hdi Coupe from new

    Previous fleet:-
    Peugeot 95' 605 Sv
    Peugeot 92' 205 Gti
    Renault 72' 16TS from new
    Renault 69' 10
    Renault 71' 10s
    Renault 68' 10 from new

    I cant seem to find an image for the SI front suspension.

    Is the suspension interchangeable between the two, or are the mounting points/ structure completely different?

    What are the major differences the 205 GTI & 205 SI?-gti-vs-si.jpg Answer is yes. GTi left Si right.

    Take a bit of time and read the attached recent Thread: 205si upgrades

    Biggest difference for me is the rear wheel arch. The Gti rear wheel arch is a totally different shape which is hidden by the plastic body trim. Nearly everything else can be transferred over to Clone an Si into a GTi. The major give away would be the rear arch though.
