After recently selling my Black 205 GTI 1.9, I haven't planned on buying another 205 GTI but this one was simply too good to pass.

XU9JAZ (1.9 Motronic Cat, 120 bhp). First registered in 1991, but it's a 1989 model. It initially drove like a dream but all of a sudden developed some electric problems, which made it stall upon warm up.

Not exactly what I was hoping I'd be doing with my "new" 205 in the first days of ownership :-(. I had to get the PAS bottle fixed too.

The biggest bodge-up I've ever seen on a 205 - a mixture of Ph1 electrics, Ph2 reflectors and a Ph2 cover - and no reverse lamp! I replaced the tail lamps for Ph1 items.

I put some old orange front indicators on too, for the retro look and becuase one of the clear ones fell apart. The car back together and it fired up straight away and ran for 20 minutes with no problems...

...and then the same problem came back! I was devastated. Spent next couple of days replacing EVERYTHING electrical. It turned out to be a duff rotor arm in the end.

As it stands, it's completely original, even has the original faded bumpers, except for the aftermarket lower driving/spot lamps. Never been crashed as well!

However, the real reason I bought it is a tribute to a silver 205 GTI 1.9, which made me and my father fall in love with 205 GTIs, 20 years ago!
