2000 Peugeot 106 1.1 Zest, 3 months MOT, £160 Reading

Recommended Posts



Well, a prolific shiter has given me this in exchange for the Rover (partly) and I will be picking it up Saturday. I don't want to keep it but it will do someone else a good turn I reckon. 


In the unlikely event I do end up keeping it, I will update the post. 


Yes, so in an Autoshite first, I am selling a car I am yet to have set eyes upon! Again if it FTPs or something else happens I will update the advert. I can deliver it to anyone around my way, and anyone living on the SWR network will be happy to know I get free train travel so don't worry about paying for my travel.


The reason for the premature advert is to just try and keep things sane here, as I have a LHD Tipo to collect on Sunday (for breaking), a new daily to find/buy and potentially a nice red Justy to play with at some point (all being well regarding that ebay advert), and it's a bit overwhelming. I really do myself no favours.


Okay so good points:


-Looks tidy from the photos generally speaking, not dented to buggery.

-The 1.1 engine is a known quantity from past experience and pushes the little things well.

-Low mileage, sub 60k.

-Tidy interior, may need a quick hoover. 

-5 door, wooohoo. 

-Resale silver.

-Drives spot on from what I have been told


Points the previous owner has mentioned:

-Door locks occasionally play up

-Aux belt a bit noisy at times

-Dings and marks to paint as per (French) car of this age

-Typical TADTS TU1 header tank, but having seen photos, it's not bad compared to others I've had, and it's unlikely HGF.

-Speedo doesn't work. It'll be an interesting drive back for sure, but I seem to remember the TU1 is at 70 at about 3600 rpm...I might be wrong. 



I appreciate this is a car i have yet to drive, but the shiter concerned is trustworthy and I certainly believe them!


It would probably be a good set of cheap wheels for someone or a good first car, it does have PAS.


Have some photos (not taken by me, obvs)






Any questions, let me know by PM please!


(Will be) Located in Reading from this Saturday. 


Raffle interest will be gauged but I would want something dumb like £2.80 a go....

      I have a Vespa PX. I love it. I commute daily on it.

      I don't have a bike license so I'm riding around on L plates which I'm finding frustrating given that I appear to better understand the rules of the road than 99% of other drivers. Or at least I know how to break them politely. Also I'd like to take a passenger from time to time.

      I'd like to take my bike test, direct access ideally, and I fully understand it's safety training as well, but £700? Ain't gonna happen. I'd like to do it myself on my Vespa, and given that it's a 125 and manual I could do restricted licence test on it couldn't I? NO! I hear you say! Why not? Because bureaucracy. How dare they take away my rights? You could probably fund the NHS with the money that they'd save by not ruining my life etc..

      So enter the LML.. A copy of the Vespa Made under license in India. It's identical in all but name and some suspect quality electrics. WCPGW? Because of modern regs, they've got a cat and hence a bit slower in standard form than the PX that they're based on, until you unleash an extra 10th of a horse by drilling a heart shape in the air filter. True story.

      So anyway, given that they're identical only slower, you couldn't possibly take your bike test on one could you? WRONG AGAIN! YOU CAN!! Apparently it's hard to hit the 31mph required for the MOD 1 test, but I think the naysayers aren't trying hard enough. WCPGW?

      ​So enter an ad on an owners forum. LML, 2 stroke (essential), 2000km, 2 years old, "broken right indicator". £MEGA BARG. I bought it about 2 months ago. Unseen obvs. The only problem is that it's 120 miles away. Several idiots on shiply claimed that they could collect it for reasonable money before changing their minds on time/date/ location. The vendor is a gent, a minister no less, and has been incredibly patient. However as God's birthday is approaching he was becoming less flexible making it harder to co-ordinate with a courier. Van hire seemed expensive and something about him told me that his arms to would be too weak to help me lift it in to a van.

      FUCK IT! Train booked. I"M GONNA RIDE IT HOME. IN DECEMBER. Forecast says rain all day tomorrow. WCPGW??

      Just about an hour ago I went to start my car up, had Mrs Dustman with me, to go and pick Miss Dustman up from work. Turned over fine but took a while to fire up.
      Steering felt heavy. Thought maybe as it's currently -5 + wind chill it's just cold & the fluid is thick.
      Started reversing out my bay then I was greeted with:
      "DING DONG" - ABS fault.
      "DING DONG" - ESP fault
      "DING DONG" - headlamp auto levelling not working, contact service.
      I shut the car down straight away and we went in Mrs D's Corolla.
      Alternator is less than 2 months old, it's a recon unit from Alternator Man in Portsmouth. Hoping the cold isn't killing the battery and it's taking the 'nator out with it (battery passed the drop test last time the no-charge warning came up). Looks like a session with the multimeter after work tomorrow.....
