I've had a very soft spot for these for YEARS but have only now come in position to purchase one. In fact, there are probably only 2-3 road going ones in Bosnia in total and this is definitely the best one. It has had a full respray and engine rebuild a few years ago.

It needs some finishing touches, such as sticker set (anyone know where can I get one, apart from ebay?), RH bumper vent and tailgate spoiler. Other than lowering springs, it's completely stock (I have the original steel wheels too - the black ones are with winter tyres).

That looks wicked.

So jealous that you own a Rallye where you do; I just did a road trip from London to Corfu summer just gone and the drive through Croatia / Bosnia / Montenegro / Albania was absolutely amazing. Definitely Rallye territory.

There is a road between Vlore and Sarande called the SH8 which goes over a mountain, you really need to do a trip there, it's 50km of 2md/3rd gear switchbacks and hairpins with incredible views! Please trust me, you have to go, Google it quickly it can't be more than 6 hours drive from you, great weekend trip.

Best of luck with the car.

i just had a look at that road on Google Maps and it does look amazing, pity it is so far from the UK!

No joke it took 2.5 hours at full mash, we were racing to catch a ferry, think four wheel drift through the apex, roof down as the sun set across the sea on one side... in a 250 mk3 golf cabbie we got on eBay. Epic.

cybernck you have to take your rallye and go drive it! I would love to see that.

I've got a pic of us at the peak where it says 'Panorama' / 'Mount Cika' on the map:

Ah, welcome to the RR.

I bet there will be some who would be interested in the 205 too ;)

Plenty of local roads to keep me entertained ;).

That's my infamous 205 Mi32: http://projects.205gtidrivers.com/205mi32

Can anyone on here help me out with some closeup photos and measurement of Rallye decals?

Thanks, Nikica.

Er, wow. That's suitably mental, are they both turbo'd?

Harv> No, only the rear one. Well - at least it was - it's n/a at the moment.

Martijn> You've got PM.

Thanks, Nikica.
