205 1.9 Gti - Superb. — Absolutely stonking car. Yes there were faster cars and better handling cars but nothing that put it all together in quite the same way. Point it at a good A or B road, light the blue touch paper and stand well back. This car has humbled Porsches, Astons, Scoobies and so on when the road got tough; and all within the speed limit officer. I did 175,000 miles in mine and was very very sad to see it go. In some ways it even bettered the Caterham as it was still usable in the wet, you could get four people in it and it was also practical.

Pros: Fun, fun, fun.

Cons: Bit cheap and rattley

Just Like A Go-kart — Awesome power, feel and performance, best overall hot-hatch from the 80's.

Pros: Golf beater!

Cons: Michelin Tyres are a must - preferably Pilots.
Watch for lift-off oversteer, you'll be off the road backwards before you know it!
French quality, hit a bump and interior trim falls apart.

Peugeot 205 Xs — This car was superb. Quick, nimble and reliable. It looked good too and didnt cost the Earth to insure! I was sad when I sold it and the guy who took it off my hands didnt even argue over the price.

Pros: Performance, Handling, Looks

Cons: It wasn't the GTI

The Best Hot Hatch Of All Time — this car was a legend, i had the 1.9, it was quick and nimble and could compete with much more sofisticated machines, even today this car rates highly.

Pros: handling, driver appeal, speed

Cons: comfort.

Nice Colour, Shame About Crappy Alternator! — The one i had was a 1.0L petrol version, very old but had problems with the alternator which eventually meant i had to get rid of it. Was my first car so was a shame to get rid of it, but then i bought my 1991 Fiesta which i loved, so not all bad really!

Pros: Nice colour, comfy seats

Cons: Not that reliable - my alternator packed in
