I liked it since I was a little boy my favorite GTI

Subzero since this is now becoming a classic and bought by people who love the car instead of buying another hot hatch.

Cool as hell!

crayzayjay 12-21-2005 02:05 PM

Very cool, but not subzero.

Cool.

I just love this car. Only driven it once but it was great. So much better than the 206 GTI. The ultimate GTI in my book. SZ.

taygunho 12-27-2005 02:05 PM

cool.
One of the best GTi ever

Close to subzero...best hatch in its day, and a classic in the making (if it isn't already)

I would go with the 205 1.9 every time given those two to choose from. I am assuming you mean a Scirrocco Scala rather than a GTX 16V, even so, the pug will be lighter and I can also guess the better handling car.

Anyway, back to the topic this car is at the very least cool.

This car has great styling and the 1.9's are just monster cars, great fun, especially with a Mi16 motor dropped in.

A modern classic. One of a handful of Subzero hatchbacks. 8)

Very common, thus not very exotic. Too many kids are buying second hand models and ricing them up, thus upping the "annoying" aspect of seeing these things going up and down the streets with their fart cans blaring.

The looks are too angular for my taste, gives it a very retro look and I'm not really into this look (I know some people are). Although a practical car in some aspects, and great to toss around, I can't put a car like this into the cool or subzero bracket, simply because there are so many other cars that do it better, are more exciting, and ultimately look better.

Also, my experience from Peugeot has shown that they cannot be trusted with your car for repairs of any kind, nor for actually testing a car as it takes up to 4 tries to find a car which works troublefree during a test drive. This soured my "Peugeot experience" greatly and wouldn't recommend buying a Peugeot (at least not from the Geneva dealers).

I just don't think it's anything special when I see it, and I don't think this will change. Sorry, I think it's somewhere between uncool and seriously uncool (can't even remember what I voted for after I finished typing this out :oops: )
