Back to a french car!!

Post by Aaron_206 on Thu Mar 15, 2012 7:23 am

As some may know. I recently sold my old 106. After this i was stuck with what to get next. After looking round for ages to find something decent (and diesel) a little minter cropped up Smile an S reg 206 1.9 diesel. Cracking little car so far, and great on fuel! Very Happy

Changed the standard speakers for a set of 240w sony edge components. Then got myself a Full black leather interior in great condition for £150. Also had to treat it to a set of wheels as the old ones were s**t! lol. A lot of ebay hunting produced a nice set of 16" nimrods with good tyres for £160. Photos to follow tomorrow....

Thanks. As i mentioned above. Already put a leather interior in, and put on a set of 16" gti alloys. Next plans are the Gti bootlip spoiler, maybe gti arch extensions, and colour code the black plastic when the weathers warmer Very Happy

tell me about it! was looking at lowering springs last night. would then just need to drop the beam to suit. was thinking about 30mm. cant go too low round here. and then a nice set of 17" gti 180 alloys in anthricite.....

You could always get stiffer shocks with lowering, will avoid smashing the bottom of the car off the road. 30mm never drops as much as you reckon! I discovered that with my 35mm drop on my Focus!

Liking the top set there bud! hoppefully got a bargain coming for the pug soon. My bonnet has the usual peugeot rust on the front. Razz and the passenger wing is creased. if all goes well i will be getting, a pair of front wings, bonnet, gti bumper, crystal headlights, slam panel and radiator. All for £160!! Very Happy just got to find out if its the right colour. its hard to tell by the photos, and its not in the description. I have a horrible feeling it's moonstone blue.....fingers crossed i'm wrong and its silver Neutral

eGay is it? Messaged them? Smile

Fair play though if it pulls off. Might be worth getting the stuff anyway just to have spares, then you can get them sprayed up as & when. Smile

Because, my friend, they are French. They would've put a baguette on the windscreen if it could wipe water away like a strip of rubber! Razz
