Came along this car at scrapyard in 2010 in my school lunch break, when I was searching for parts. Car had a MOT 2 months before they brought it there with 2 new toyo tires fitted! Asked for a test drive and bought it. The next day I picked it up, they told me the car was sold 3 times by all 3 brothers at the scrapyard. The boss sold it to me, so that was my luck.  Over the years I worked on it to keep it ok. But about one and a half years ago I set my mind on making it a proper car with some go fast bits on it. The outside is rust free but a bit tatty. The suspension is new as for a lot of engine parts. If it dies it dies in my ownership!

I wish we had these in the states! Great car!

[]Joost Van Dien

There are a few. The last car that was imported in the states was his big brother the 405. I know of at least 2 205 gti's and there must be more!

They are just starting to come over now that they are old enough. I want one for my DD/city car.
