THE DRIVER:
Name: Richard Gebhardt
Location: Auckland, New Zealand (Originally Joburg)
Age: 25
Occupation: Student

THE CAR:
Make:
Peugeot
Model: 206 GTI RC/ 180
Year: 2004
Engine Size: 2 litre 16v

Well, being a VW fan it took some convincing to go another route, but i eventually ended up getting myself a sexy Peugeot 206 GTI 180. I chose the GTI 180 model because of the excellent performance, great handling and good looks. It’s also so much nicer than just a normal 206 GTI.

It goes from 0-100 in 7.4 seconds (Without mods)
1/4 mile: 14.9 seconds (without mods.)

I also like it, because it has more performance and better performance figures than some turbo cars.

I have a few plans to upgrade it a bit more. On the list is a K&N Typhoon intake system, a Jetex Catback Stainless steel free flow exhaust. My goal is to get the power up to at least 200 bhp. And i want to upgrade the standard door and back speakers to Xplod, and the front loader too.

Engine Mods:
Engine Mods: Engine remap. Car is now 192bhp/ around 143kw.
Has the standard BMC performance filter.
Has a sports back-box and muffler.

Exterior:
Has a set of 17” Koya RSS racing rims.
Micro-carbon gloss door mirrors
Alloy fuel filler cap
Pearlescent paintwork
Rear spoiler
Color-coded bumpers

Interior:
Racing-style front seats
Bucket seats at the rear
Aluminium pedals
Polished aluminium gear knob

Audio:
x 2 12” 1200w Sony X plod Sub woofers in a Double ported enclosure.
3000w Mono-block 1 Channel amp
LG front loader Mp 3

    Hey bro, well i actually did some research and found something even better than the K&N Typhoon intake. I found a BMC induction kit. It’s called a OTA airbox, it’s a carbon box. (oval trumpet airbox) Have a look on the BMC website i think it’s worth a feature in a article for the site maybe. I will test it out and let you know how it goes. As for the windows, i was thinking about a tint, maybe a bit darker will look nice yeah. Organize me a sticker lol.
