    Default The 1.6 gti resto is nearly finished- new paint makes a big diff :}

    Just had a full respray, complete full engine rebuild top to bottom [ouch ! ] and 99% of things replaced even though they didnt require it.
    This would have to be the best 205 i have driven out of the 27 i have owned. It still requires the engine to free up though so should go even better after that.

    The 1600 cc engines are great, even in mild Si form, a good GTi would be a lot better of course.
