I'll be moving to the area in next few months and just wonder if there are any specialists there, who can do repair work, as and when required - any recommendations, please?

Well yes......... but any 205GTI owner will tell you that parts sourcing and specialist knowledge on the foibles of these now-elderly cars is whats needed!

So i'm seeking the guys who 'feel the lurve' for these particular cars - i'm sure they are out there!

You would think so but I had a gti6 and most parts were interchangeable from other std 306's, gearbox and engingine are the only major differences, but if they fail its cheap enough to sorce a 2nd wanger and any mechanic can fit you that!

True, just the 6speed box and a slightly more powerful engine than the std 2ltr range (internals etc) but that 6speed box didn't half play havoc on the turning circle. I dont think you'll have many problems where you go tbh bud thanks to ebay and such!

hahha true mate did look at converting my 205 to 6 spd but was also told about the bus-like turning circle ,which put me off hahah
and am sure it was just the cams and throttle body that were different on the gti-6 too iirc
