Zach417's Peugeot 208 - GTI By Peugeot Sport (2016)After having a couple of Luke warm hatch's such as the Citroen C2 Loeb and a DS3 165 THP I needed a fully cooked hot hatch. I've been reading EVO magazine for years and I could see the Peugeot GTI's where getting good reviews but the one thing that stood out in all of the reviews was that the steering wheel was in an awkward place and blocked the instruments. Fortunately my cousin from Halliday Peugeot in Bushmills let me have a 308 GTI 270 for a few days, it was a fantastic car and liked the extra space and tech but the touch screen had everything in it which put me off. So I weighed up the differences between the 308, 208 and the DS3 Performance and the 208 came out on top.
My cousin found this 208 with just 3,500 since 2016 and serviced every year.
The car comes with
208 BHP (easy enough to remember)
4 Pot Brembo brakes with 323mm discs
18inch Speedline wheels (from factory)
Mitchelin Pilot Super Sport Tyres
Bucket seats which are very comfortable
I want to keep the car relatively standard so the mods I've done are
Short shifter by 4 Tech
Painted the rear callipers to match the front Brembo's
