Advantages: Pace, Fingability, Aggressive and sporty looks
Disadvantages: it doesnt have a jet booster?, There is a top speed?, Running out of things to say?
I also have only had the car 2 months and wow. This is a great car, if you want a precise driving sensation then this car is perfect.
Belt this thing round any corner at a good speed and you will feel the car stick like glue with brakes which stop you before you can say 'o crap' you will be laughing.
The motor is strong at high revs giving plenty of pulling power when over taking your worst enemy - the boy racer. My car has chewn up and spat out clio 16v's, nova's, civics, audi's, basically all 3 series bmw's and a hell of a lot more.
Went out the other day and a mate and I thought we'd time the 0-60 (bearing in mind Peugeot say 0-60 in 7.6) we did it in 7.3 with TWO people in the car. I timed it yesterday (with a little difficulty and danger) and clocked it at 6.8!!!!
Top speed ive got is 130mph. 35mph in 1st, 65mph in 2nd, 90mph in 3rd, 4th gear is good for 110mph and 5th is all the rest.
The GTi will give a little flick you corner hard, which frightens you a bit at first but ive learnt the limits on dry tarmac and can actually control pretty well round hard corners. - Just pratised around round-a-bout a million times.
Yes it does have minor problems, but nothing spoils the car at all.
