    Mad Cyril reacted to Lacquer Peel in bora. any good?   
    Miserable cars for miserable people.
     
    They have a veneer of build quality, but scratch beneath the surface and they are built worse than any French car.
     
    It is only £300 though, and that engine is veg friendly.

    Aye carumba! Yup, exciting is the word. I'll take the saloon. I'll just bodge it onto my current 2CV's chassis. That'll be ace and won't upset any purists at all* I shouldn't think.

    FTFY. Like all modern cars they are designed for that 1% of the time you might want to drive it like a dick making the other 99% an absolutely dreadful driving experience

    funny isn't it, GM and SAAB, or for that matter Ford and Jaguar share platforms then the pub experts will whine and whine, moan and groan.
     
    but if one of the dirty hun does the same thing, no one bats an eye lid.
     
    always liked SAAB as they were very much their own brand both technically and stylistically in the olden days. and the world is now more dull and boring without them.
     
    i would much rather have a scab inplace of some germanic turd, no matter what.

    I've got some 406 wiring loom here, there are a lot of yellow wires in that, probably because they're all joined together.
     
    I'd have thought if the injector was stuck open the effects would be fairly apparent, high fuel consumption, even white smoke. I've not come across it though.
     
    HDi 406s started appearing before the facelift in 1999 when the 2.1 disappeared and was replaced by the 2.0 HDi 110. 1.9 TD's seem to have been carried on right up until the facelift but a '99 2.1TD is a rare beast. The prefacelift HDi didn't have a DMF and the car wasn't multihexed so this would be the one to go for if you don't mind the millions of catastrophic failures HDi's apparently suffer.
     
    Well, I seem to have been lucky so far but I'm sure the next time I drive my HDi the engine will fall out and the electrics will catch fire and only then will I realise I should have bought a Passat because they never go wrong.

    Totally agree. I abused mine every day for a year, towed car trailers ( within legal weight limits obviously....) and had over half a tonne in it more than once.
     
    Coudn`t bear to scrap it though so parked it in some mud for a year and then sold it yesterday to some chap who is going to restore it

    No idea. It's on the long list of things to check when it isn't bloody pissing it down. Sodding weather. You'll be able to tell when I've got this car watertight, as there will then be the longest drought in history.

    Mad Cyril reacted to barmatt in Is anyone bidding on this?   
    I had the misfortune of owning one of those pieces of turd a few years back. It was the most boring, unpleasant thing I've ever owned/driven. If you went towards a bend at anywhere over 35mph I swear it wasn't attached to the road.
     
    I'm struggling to remember anything nice about it at all, in fact I think I've blocked pretty much every memory of it out of my mind apart from the overwhelming sense of pleasure I got when I sent it over the bridge to meet its bastard maker.
     
     
    Sorry, that sounds as though I didn't like it.

    Floors and sills are better than my 2CV!

     
    There are some issues though...

     
    Still quite tempting to buy it and then lob the body on the good chassis and running gear I have under the rotten 2CV...

    I had a 16V then a VR6 then 2 more 16V's then another VR6 - once you've had a VR6 then others are nothing as you'll just sit telling yourself you should have bought the VR6 in the 1st place. G60's still a 4 cylinder so no matter what mod's it's had it's not the same sound.
