1989 Peugeot 205 GTi 1.9 petrol from UK and Ireland
It's a driver's car!
Brake pads changed.
Head gasket went at 1400000, so the engine was replaced.
New clutch needed.
What a car! I previously had a 1.1 205, and ever since a 1.9 flew away from me at the lights I have always wanted one!
Its handling is unlike any other car I have ever driven, or been in, and it loves to be driven hard.
There is always some extra power left in it and you are not going to be embarrassed by many cars.
It still looks amazing and its style has not faltered over time.
The insurance is very high (I'm 19 and got quoted £5000) but it is worth every single penny. With a little work, and money, it can be amazing.
My car has been very expensive to keep on the road, I have already spent twice as much on it, than I bought it for, but once again, it is worth it.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
