    Firstly,  apologies for one of my first posts being a for sale thread. I'm a longtime lurker and have signed up several times only for my username and password to stop working for some reason. Anyway I have 4 cars and it takes the piss getting the wheely bins out, and the 205 has gone from dependable daily to unused ornament through no fault of its own. 
     

     
    Well, that's not strictly true, it has developed a rattle due to one or more paggered engine mounts. The top mount has perished so it could well be that swapping that would cure it, but equally likely is that the bottom mount needs changing, which is a little more involved but still no problem for a competent spannerer. My current problem is the fact that real life is getting in the way and I won't realistically have a spare weekend until the MOT is nearly up. The car still drives fine but it needs sorting as the car also lacks a radio to drown out the rattle.
     

     
    Now I've made it sound really bad, the good bits:
    MOT til end of october
    2 sets of wheels (originals in need of refurb and 14" partner rims with branded tyres)
    Still red rather than pink
    Funky striped sports seats
    Pretty quick, and feels faster
    Everything electrical works (there isn't much but still)
    Twin choke carb for noticeable step in power delivery. GTIs lack this and are therefore inferior
    61k miles
    All the locks operate from the same key. x2 keys
    Stays bone dry when it rains
    New numberplates, springs and brake pads
    Hilariously good fun to drive, nothing feels like a 205 and this is the most fun one I've tried.

    The parking ticket was a joke one btw


     
    These seem to be rare and it drives like the odometer is telling the truth so offers around £400 would be nice

    There is a bloke near us who has one of these.   I can not explain in what way, but he actually looks like one too.
