    Quick pug

    Was having a bit of a blast round some country roads this afternoon and came up behind a battered looking pug 205 gti.

    He obviously clocked the front mount cooler stickin out my bumper in his rear view mirror and decided to show what he had under the bonnet.

    He's floored it round about 5 cars in front and disappeared - this thing was f***ing fast! I followed him for a while but he started driving pretty dangerous overtaking round blind corners etc so I left him to it in the end. Was just really surprised by how quick it was! Anyone ever had one and tuned it up etc? What kind of power can you get out of em?

    Also saw an 09 reg blue Focus RS in a Halfords car park - one sexy looking car - first one I've seen in the flesh.

    Yea two of my freinds had 205 with a mi16 engine which shrick cams and throttle boddies. From what i remember they would give a 280 bhp astra a very very hard time till it came to a corner then sorry to say the astra has no chance

    Love small French hatchbacks, always have done, after having my saxo

    People can slate them all they want saying they're french but they're bloody good handling cars for the money

    VTS's and 106 GTI's are my favourites

    yeah i'm not ashamed to say i was struggling to keep up with him, especially as the driver seemed completely fearless. Was hoping he'd turn onto the dual carriage way so we could go side by side but no such luck lol. would love to have a go in one must be a lot of fun suprising people - sleepers rock

    Iv had 3x 205 GTi's 2x 1.6 & 2x 1.9 (converted 1 of the 1.6's to a 1.9).
    The 1.9's are 130bhp,but i had mine running 160-170bhp.
    As said above it was proberly an Mi16 converted 1, There the 1.9 16v versions out of a Pug 405,160bhp standard....but u dont find many standard 1's about,lol. .


    EDIT: Oh or maybe a 2.0 16v turbo conversion from a Citroen...forget what car now.
