  • DESCRIPTION

    For sale we have a 205 GTI with Mi16 conversion which remains aesthetically original and fully usable, but has been upgraded and improved to a fast road specification.

     

    Showing 157,000miles, with the conversion taking place in 2006 at 124,000 miles. A huge history file comes with the car with all service history, invoices and old MOTs dating back to 1990.

     

    Major works carried within the last 5,000 miles comprise cambelt / waterpump replacement in December, new clutch, new front lower wishbones , new Koni Group N shocks and professionally lowered 25mm by Pug Racing (who also reported the rear beam to be in very good condition).

    12 months MOT, oil and filter service in December.

     

    This car has been owned by my brother since 2008 who has sadly taken the decision to sell due to overseas work commitments as a pilot, which means he no longer gets to enjoy the car. The current spec is as follows:

    • Mi16 engine from a 405;

    • 205 1.6 close ratio gearbox (compliments the revvy 16v engine);

    • Maniflow Mi16 downpipe, centre and rear exhaust;

    • 306 GTI-6 brake setup (much bigger and stronger than originals);

    • Rear beam reconditioned in December 2006 only 30,000 miles ago;

    • OMP sturtt braces top and bottom;

    • Koni Group N shocks;

    • Lowered 25mm;

    • Brand new cambelt and waterpump;

    Considering the age of the car the interior is in superb condition, some wear is to be found to the seats but this is not unexpected. The red carpets are immaculate, as is the plastic trim. All switchgear and electrics works as they should and the car has a fully operational sunroof, unmarked headlining and fully trimmed door cards.


    Cosmetically, the exterior of the car isn't perfect but it would not take much to get the car looking great restoring it back to its former glory, it's just something my brother never got around to doing. Invoices in the history file suggest corrosion was dealt with in the early 2000s, this is evident when underneath the car as the sills look immaculate. There is no corrosion apparent to the bodywork. The wheels are standard 205 speedlines and are shod in Toyo Proxes with plenty of tread remaining.
     

    Car is located in Wandsworth, London.
