When I've had 205's doing that, it has been the airflow meter knackered.

Maybe the wrong AFM? Someone could have swapped it for something that looks the same but these AFMs are tuned for the engine so has to be the right one for your engine, not one that looks the same.

There is a bolt that goes into the side of the inlet manifold that secures the oil filler neck. Make sure it is there. If it isn't, it will draw in unmetered air, reduce the vacuum in the inlet manifold which in turn increases the fuel pressure and makes it run richer. Makes it run dreadfully, basically. On the same lines, check carefully for air leaks between the air flow meter and the cylinder head. Spray WD-40 on the joins and listen to see if it raises the idle speed.
