205 1.9 GTI

146,000 miles

MOT until 29 September 2017

The car has only done just over 9,000 miles in the last 11 years.

Late model 205 with 1.9 engine and best exterior interior combination. Registered 30 Dec 1992.



I have owned this car for the last 6 years. It was in storage for the first 5 years and only on the road for just over a year. The car has been great fun to drive and own and has done a number of 200 mile return trips and also been a daily driver without issue. The car gets so much attention whether it’s just in a filling station getting fuel or a Ferrari pulling up alongside on the motorway and giving a thumbs up.  Car has been many events and shows is always a talking point.


The reason for selling is that I do need a second car but the 205 is too special for parking in car parks or bringing out over the winter.


The car is not perfect but perfectly usable, last year before putting the car back on the road the following was carried out:

New copper brake pipes under the vehicle.

New brake pads and disks all round.

New brake master cylinder

New battery

New Falken Tyres

Wheels stripped and repainted

New timing belt

New Water Pump

New Rear Exhaust silencer and centre pipe

New Headlight

Second hand wiper stalks

Second hand wiper motor.

New lower wishbone

Rear boot floor replaced professionally at a cost of £600 due to a coin sized hole.


Items which I would like to do if I continued owning it.

Driver’s seat needs a repair, all others are good.

Roof has faded, there are some good products on the market which bring it up well but I would ideally like to get to it repainted

Somebody has discoloured the bonnet in an area, possibly from too much heat when polishing.

Stone chips on front bumper.

All plastic trims are good although it is difficult to get the front bumper dark enough to match the rest of the trims.

New interior mats, carpets are good.

Radio does not work, it is a classic Kenwood item with rear parcel shelf alpine speakers, very in keeping with the period.

Seal on front windscreen washer bottle pump.

Rear windscreen washer, wipers works fine, just the washer.

Top engine mount spacers/washers.

Slight bubbling around rear widow, hasn’t got any worse since I owned it. Shown in photo.

Scratch on side as shown in photo.

Build up a history file and find original manuals etc.

Find a twisty road and drive it and enjoy it.



Emails would be preferred during the day and I will get back to you. Car is located in Solihull.
