Hello,

 

Just bought a 1.9 phase 1.5 and shes not mint but happy with what I have for the money. Couple of initial questions and wondered if anyone can help :

- I'm in mid-Kent, does anybody know of any good 205 gti specialists in kent ?

- Car could do with a nice detail....paint is pretty good but the bumpers are very faded i.e.light grey....I'm interested in solutions/ideas you might have for the bumpers in particular.
- I'm going to store car over winter months but sadly probably not indoors, can anyone recommend a real good car cover for the 205 ?                                                                  Thanks all.

Wurth bumper dye is very good. You'll need anthracite for phase 1.5 bumpers.

I had another question for the forum as well. car has no mats....assuming originals are as good as impossible to source, any recommendations on best

replicas ? Cheers.

The wurth dye is very good, lasts a long time and out of everything I have tried would get my vote as being the best option. Just don't use a pressure washer on it after or it will force it off and in patches. I think the company that was once recommended for car mats was Ambassador, not sure if still going, got myself a set from them and was very pleased with them, still in the car now and had them for 6+ years. I had a stormforce car cover I used when mine was stored outside. If it were still outside and I needed another one would be my first choice still.
