    Default 205 gti wheelbase question

    is the wheelbase exactly the same for all 205 gti regardless of series.?
    there is an impresion going around that the later series has a different wheel base width at the front.

    You are talking about track not wheelbase.
    Yes the Series three has a narrower front track but wider in the rear.

    yep .sorry .tracking.
    how much of a difference,do you know by chance.?
    an af member with late mod 205 wants a strut brace but we are not sure if the early model brace will fit later model.
    sparco catalog says the same one for 87-

    All of the suspension mounts are the same on all series 205's, so the strut braces will fit them all. The differences in track width are from the hubs, i believe.
