      I'll take some pics tomorrow of the interior. the Drive is great, real difference from the 208 GTI Prestige I had before since the lower suspension, wider track, Michellin Pilot Super Sports, LSD, Heavier steering and the massive Bucket seats make this a totally different car to drive

          Looks great! I love those seats - I've got them in my Performance too. SO comfy!

            That looks sweet as Toxic . Very nice, but I do like the DS Performance more Kat . Just my personal opinion though

              Car looks great! What does BPS stand for?

              Not sure on the mats, quite bright!

                BPS = "by Peugeot Sport". its built as a GTi then shipped to Peugeot Sport for tweaks. the difference in driving it significant. Cant believe the grip around corners

                the Red mats are actually growing on me, though have another custom set on order.

                  Ah yeah of course, itís basically the Peugeot equivalent of the DS3 Performance looking at the specs. Sounds like a lot of fun, enjoy the car

                    Yep the BPS is the derivative from the 2014 208 GTi 30th Edition, when approx 1100 were sold globallly, then the demand made PSA rethink and bring out a new version of it, though they really are Identical the BPS was released mid 2015. the DS3 Performance then used the same internals with the EP6FDTX engine.

                    Rumours now have the next 208 GTi possibly using the newer Puretech 1.6 225Bhp engine (since THP is the past) which is in the 308GT and 508GT. This might be a nice option since they have EAT8 Automatic gearbox on them too.

                    Is the DS3 due for a new model next year like the 208?

                      I like the sound of 225BHP.

                      Only thing Iíve heard is theyíre discontinuing the DS3 Hopefully to just replace it with an updated version.

                        Yep the new platform - EMP1 (Efficient Modular Platform) is meant to be lighter too - (possibly upto 100kg lighter in some reports), so if the 225 Puretech is going into the new 208 GTi/DS3 Performance, then we should see some increase in 0-60 times aswell. Lets hope they look the part too however. I noticed the new Ford Fiesta ST for me is somewhat uglier than its predecessor, lets hope PSA build on there looks for the next model of small hatchbacks.

                          Stunning wee car! Something makes me think I have seen this recently in the North Down area... and I commented to my friend about it! I see the dealer is in Newtownards anyway...

                            Looks great, I also noticed the arrival of the 1.6 Puretech in the DS7. Good riddance THP! Can't wait to see the new gen of Pugs, the 209 GTi possibly, or too early for a new version?
