Lol, GTI-6 is a great car in theory. A hatchback with a 6-speed box and a nice big powerplant under the bonnet. Just shame they carry that French trait of unreliability.. Which, I might add, somehow doesn't affect Saxo's! :lol:

Hi Fatboy. Tell me more about the GTi6 I've not heard of it before. What engine size is it and what year?

Light and fun with lift off oversteer - great stuff. The 106 Gti was voted car of the year by Top Gear against some stiff competition too!

It was a racing/emerald green - it got stolen just 2 weeks after I got the car so was really gutted. I agree that the sleeper look is best - surprise them at the lights! :twisted:

You'll regret saying that when the topic

'My cambelt has gone after only 40k, but the book says replace every 60k! Please post details instructions on removing GTI6 head and replacing cambelt, as well as bent valves'

arrives.

Didnt they come top in a TOPGEAR group test which included a Ferrari? Handling was like a go cart - awesome fun!

Re: GTI

Hey guys! I used to be on the forums some time ago under the guise of SexyBeast. This was a long time ago and i had a BMW 3-series, but i have returned with a Pug 206 GTI this time. :mrgreen:

Has anyone else bought one second hand only to find that they have to rebuild the beast from scratch nearly? I've had mine a month just about and i've replaced half the f*cking car already! :mad:

It's cost me about £1k thus far! Front suspension (full spec) totally replaced. Clutch - replaced. Gearbox - Reconditioned (just waiting for it back from the garage still) and a new exhaust. I was going to add a new one anyway but needs must when some f*ckwit has decided to pigeon weld and plaster the existing exhaust to keep it attached to the car (just). :rolleyes:

The cost is getting ridiculous at the moment. I know they're not known for their reliability but for christ's sake it seems like an awful lot to go wrong all at once! :shock:

That said I'm really missing it. It was supposed to be finished Saturday afternoon. It's now Monday afternoon and as far as i'm aware the gearbox still hasn't arrived back from reconditioning! How long can it take to re-con a gearbox!? :evil:

Anyway, Hi! lol!

It's the 137. Fast enough and didn't want to add an extra £3k to my insurance premium. lol. I completely forgot my old username until i'd re-signed-up with this one. This garage busines is really doing my head in though i feel like going down and swinging for the guy! If someone says Saturday you don't expect it to take 'til Tuesday/Wedneday the next week do you!? It's a joke!!

Hi There rudders and welcome back. Do you want to see if I can join your old posts to your new username? I think it is possible but I've never done it before.

I think I've done it - give it a while for the old posts to get your new id! Did you register as sexybeast and sexybeast69? If not then I've deleted the sexybeast account - sorry whoever you are!

ooo dear

what book were you using?
Was it the haynes manuel because they don't cover the GTi-6
(says on the back)

i'd just get a new enigne mate there easy enough to come by and there relatively cheap

if youve got a cash flow rob mate can i suggest something ?
Sell the ecoteh valve. its a waste of time unless you like the induction noise when you lift off.
had one on my civic for around 40k and never noticed any difference

I've thought about getting a 6 or a rallye in place of my dt trying to find one thats unmodded and with low milage and full service history is pritty hard to come by...any Ideas?

Mind you I do want to mod it myself but I'd rather start with a blank canvas....

The Rallye will probably be easier to track down than a 6. Not seen many of either about. Shame they are very nice cars.

Actually I'm finding it more difficult to find a rallye than a 6 to be fair...there loads of 6's out there and some rather good ones....but it seem to be that the low milage ones have been modded and the un-modded ones have high milage and no service history....its a real pain

Where abouts are you from? It seemed to be a different story down in kent. I was looking for one for a mate a year back. It is a shame that so many of the good ones have been molested! :( I'm sure something will turn up for you. I'll let you know if I see any about.

I'm from the midlands mate(west midlands/South Staffordshire)

Was telling some people at work I wanted to get a 6 and they were asking me"why would you want one of those old #!#!#!#! for?"
This is coming from a bloke who drives an alfa romeo diesel!
Like alfa's but a diesel one is like having your mom give you a lap dance instead of going to stringfellows....
it's not the same.....
I haven't driven the Gti-6 but from what people tell me I'm going to like it very much
Yes, most new hot hatches would probebly blast it to kingdom come....but everything else it does soooooo much better....
Drove the new 207 Gti and I didn't like it that much...They said it's surposed to handle and feel like the old pug gti's....if thats the case then oh dear....

I rented a 207 Diesel and wasn't impressed with that - the handling was vague to say the least. However an older 206 was great fun as was the 205 Gti.

Hi there, rallye owner here! I realise the last post was a while ago but thought I would say hello anyway!

There are a lot more gti-6's than rallyes by the way, 500 rallyes were imported to the UK; 200 Cherry Red, 200 Bianca White and 100 Black.
