Unleash the fury!
The drivers side electric window is not correctly mounted and rattles.
Gears are quite difficult to find when car is cold.
The clutch is heavy.
Rear windscreen wiper sprayer is not very powerful.
The car is a rocket and pleads to be thrashed!
Looks minimalist from the outside, i. e not a stunning sports car, but the performance is amazing!
Although interior is not as high spec as the GTI6 you don't really need the half leather seats, CD stacker and air-con - this is a car built to be driven to the max.
My dad used to have a GTI6 - changed it for a 206GTI and is well jealous of my Rallye!
The seats although not very attractive are sturdy and comfortable.
Blows away the majority of other vehicles on the road. Where other cars are struggling in fifth I've still got sixth to go! Bring on 140mph..
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
