Advantages: Performance - Handling - Performance!
Disadvantages: Black shows the dirt!
Even after driving it for six months putting my foot down still brings a smile to my face. Having owned the 1.8xt I was aware of the Peugeot way. The performance is fantastic and to compliment it Peugeot have designed the gti to stick to the road like glue. My car was second hand when I bought it so the engine was well broken in. Initially with the first service the warranty company had a large bill down to a defective Radiator , Steering Ram and Water Pump. This however probably is down to my bad luck rather than a general 306 problem. The inside is well equiped with all the toys and being 6'6 very comfortable. It is plush with its Leather/Suede bucket seat, the air conditioning is the ultimate luxory and very effective, personaly a good trade in instead of a sun roof. The stereo is well above average for a factory fit, the front speakers are no quite up to scratch but the rears (mounted in the parcel shelf) provide great depth and bass. The dash board provides info on oil level/temp outside temp and number of miles till next service. The design is sleek and slightly understated although much lower and slightly meaner looking than the standard models it does not satnd out like a sore thumb. The only ID is under the wing mirrors. In conclusion the performance is bone shattering, the handling is amazing and with 6 forward gears a delight.
