Always follow ebay, pistonheads and classifieds listings to see what 205's are about, even though I wouldn't be getting another one.
Is it just me or has the market been flooded with 205 GTI's of late? When I was looking for mine a few years ago there were not many decent examples about.
Now there seems to be a fair few around for the £5K mark, which appear to be tidy decent examples.
Of course there are the crappy ones up for £13K+ - dreamers considering the state alot of them are in.
But there do seem to be a good choice available around the £5K mark for unrestored, running and MOT's examples.
Makes you think whether these type of cars at this price point are worth buying from an investment point of view (not that I would, as I prefer to use and drive mine and I've never bought an old car on an invesment basis but many do).
