Peugeot 107 NOT SALLY THOMSETT'S KNICKER DRAWER 20 L&B *ALL TICKETS GONE!*

Recommended Posts

2006 Peugeot 107 1.0 'Urban' manual

12 months MOT as of yesterday, advisories for two tyres and an oil leak

116,00 miles! 

£20 per year road tax

Brand new (fortnight) snazzy* wheel trims which cost a rip-roaring £9.31 from Europarts.

Absolutely ace on fuel and surprisingly good fun to drive. I'm 6ft 3 or 4 and north of 17 stone and it's fine comfort wise.

Very clean and tidy little thing with power steering

 

Defo haven't done 65mph in 2nd and 92mph in 3rd gear in it. Not me M8. Oh no.

What you need to know:

 

Previous owner forgot to mention THIS VEHICLE HAS BEEN SALVAGED BECAUSE THE ESTIMATED COST OF COMMERCIAL REPAIR WAS MORE THAN THE VALUE OF THE VEHICLE. (No mention of date or whether Cat C or D)

 

Check out the MOT history, the oil leak seems to be a permanent fixture.

 

The front bumper has been sprayed in the past, their effort to do the bit visible under the bonnet is a bit shit.

 

I think there's a scrape on the o/s/r quarter, a couple or more dents on the car and probably some scratches.

 

Previous owner told me they had had 'a bit of a new clutch fitted, which should be under warranty, we'll send you the receipt. Car still has minor problem with clutch'. I've done 165 miles in this so far and aside from an occasional sort of 'heat shield' noise I'm fornicated if I can find anything at all wrong with the clutch, it works perfectly and the gears are spot on that I can tell. I also never received said clutch receipt. Hmm.

 

The rubber roof strips are awol. Well, one was so I removed the other in the hope of nobody realising and therefore I'm not going to tell anyone about it.

 

I don't know when it was last serviced or had belt (chain?) replaced and I'm sure there's no service history with it. A couple of old MOTs and one key.

 

Absolutely mega on fuel (I've been running round in it just to use it up) and really does drive quite nicely. If you're not phased by the mileage or Cat marker, it's just about the ideal small car.

 

£595, Chester.

 

There is a pretty decent 'shiter's discount to be had on that figure, message me if you're interested. Otherwise to a non-shiter, my best price is shove it up your arse and my cash price is several thousands of pounds.

 

Roffle at £10 per ticket a possibility, but would prefer a straight sale.

That's so cheap I reckon I could put it through my local auction and make a profit, megabarg

 

If it wasn’t categorised I’d agree but they’re not worth much more than that to the trade surely?

 

So cheap for a decent little motor though!

Had a miserably (=awesome) base spec one of these that had been LPG converted (what fucking for?!) and ran it for a year, never quite breached 100mpg but got well into the 90s a couple of times.

 

Bought from slightly oily and dodgy east end user car sales who wanted way too much for it, wouldn't switch to LPG either even though they swore blind it did! Turned out to be a disconnected relay. Eventually it was found out kt was converted as LPG carz paid no/reduced london congenital charges.

 

Sold because valves were gradually buggering themselves, the LPG fitter/genius* didn't fit a flashlube system and so the lovley soft valves were becoming more so... Shame as it was a right little ecobox/go kart/thrashing machine and had a surprisingly sporty 3cyl raspy growl to it (exhaust probably fucked too!).

 

Top motoring at such a super barginous price!

Regards clutch, every one I've driven has had a rattly or squeaky release bearing so without seeing it I'd wager it's absolutely fine.

 

They're quite sensitive to correct adjustment but it's purely a cable mechanism and adjusting it is as simple as lifting the bonnet and hand turning a big plastic collar on the clutch cable to introduce a few cm of free movement at the top of the pedal.

 

EDIT - Fancy part exchange for a Rover 216? You know* it makes sense.

I have had 3 of these and bought a 4th for a good friend. Ace little cars, although they dont have comfort for long runs with my knackered back. They have all had a bit of a noisy clutch bearing, but never a problen in over 150000 miles in them combined. Recently sold mine, it was 61 plate cat c, bought for £1400 sold 9000 miles later for £2000, it cost me an oil and filter change and an MOT. I dont really want another, and its too far away. 2 randoms please

Only if it's desperately cheap, I'm afraid.

Wow! I used to hate getting these as a trade-plates driver. Now they look oddly appealing. I'm beggining to miss that 3-pot roar and the appreciation that it's better, faster and warmer than walking. WANT. Yes, really.

 

Sadly I appear to have invested in some air and have also agreed to buy a quilt. So I'm out. Sadly.

Deffo in for a random or two - I'm after a tiny city car due to the car park I use at work suddenly being closed due to redevelopment.

 

Sadly any parking spaces available on the street by the time I rock up in the Streetwise, my smallest vehicle, are the size of a five pence piece, so this would fit the bill nicely. The Rover 45 or Cruiser are no longer appropriate work wagons unless I park fucking miles away.

Ah but think positive. Get your 10000 steps in

What are these like on a motorway run? Mpg still as good at a steady 70/80?

 

Wife has a Roomster 1.4tdi that won't breach 52mpg doing the above. Which to be fair is exactly what the rest of the world says it'll do. But 60mpg would save her £40 a month.....not including the tax saving....

      I’ve been meaning to start a thread about my cars since I started posting on here, but never quite got round to it. Until now.  Although a number have appeared in odd posts across other threads I’ll try to collate updates, comings and goings in here from now on.  Even if no-one else is interested it will serve as a record of what I’ve been wasting my time on.
       
      My cars, with one exception, fall into two camps.  There are five BL/Rover products, all of which come March I will have owned for 10 years or more.  In order of acquisition:
       
      1964 Austin 1100.  Bought in 2005 for £950, which remains the most I’ve spent on a car!  Fitted with MG1100 engine and uprated cam,  Continuously MOT’d and in light use during my ownership.
       

       
      1972 Austin 1800 automatic, bought in 2006.  A Bristol car all its life (I lived there from 96-09), it was originally Wild Moss but resprayed (I believe by the original dealer) Mallard green, as it was seriously old stock at the time.  Had hand controls from new as the first owner was paralysed, it retains all the under-bonnet gubbins for this, with the battery moved to the boot.  Off road since 2010 awaiting an engine rebuild.
       

       
      1973 Austin 1100 2 door deluxe (just like SiC’s).  Rescued in 2006 from long term storage in a hanger at Bristol airport.  Limeflower with matching interior.  My everyday car from 2007 to 2010, and at various times since.  Needs bodywork, and the suspension celebrated obtaining its last MOT in 2017 by popping a pipe over the rear subframe a day later!
       

       
      1990 Maestro diesel van.  Ex South Western Electricity Board (hence the orange colour).  Bought in 2009 to help with move from Bristol to Norfolk, it was my main transport for most of the time from 2010-16, when it finally produced a MOT failure list which needed proper attention.  New sills, wheelarches and floor sections later it’s now solid underneath, and waiting for similar attention on top.  MOTd but rarely used.
       

       
      1975 Austin Allegro 1300 estate (series 1).  Bought in March 2009 from its sole previous owner and used until the MOT ran out that August.  Slumbered until 2015 when much bodywork was done and has been back on the road since early 2016, averaging  a couple of thousand miles per year.
       

       
      Now for the past few years I’ve rotated my everyday car fairly frequently (by which I mean every couple of months or so); however last April I stumbled across my 1996 Punto 55SX.  It’s got under my skin and is going nowhere, although it might have the odd month off whilst I try something else
       

       
      So that’s my basic fleet, but since deciding that 20 years working in the defence industry, with 4 hours per day commuting for the last seven of those was quite enough I’ve bought and sold the odd car to make a bit of money.  My criteria are that they must be something which interests me, or cheap and local!  Some have been seen or even sold on here (V70 T5 last year for example) but at the end of 2018 my sales stock was precisely zero.  Something had to be done.  Last Wednesday this arrived (as seen in News24 thread):
       

       
      1997 Punto 60S.  Needs a wheel cylinder for MOT but really needs the clutch release bearing replacing (and possibly the operating arm) before it’s sellable.  A friend has offered to help with this as I’ve never split an end-on gearbox before (I refer you to my collection of gearbox in sump cars above, which I am quite happy to take apart).
       
      Then on Friday this appeared:
       

       
      Vovlo 850 2.5 20v automatic in top of the range CD spec.  Cheap as the electric front seat was supposed not to work (the movement part, not the heater).  As the battery was flat on arrival I charged that before playing with it, and the seat works perfectly! There was a problem as someone's had the switch pack off before, so maybe disconnecting the battery resets the memory box through which it all works.  I'm sure one of our more learned Volvo brethren will be along shortly with an explanation.   Once I’d cleaned copious amounts of seagull poo off it I found a very nice car with an incredibly sweet sounding engine.  MOTd to November, I’d planned to have a bit of fun with this but a family member’s phase 2 V70 died spectacularly last week so she will be taking ownership next Monday
       
      And to bring us up to date this morning I brought this home:
       

       
      Very local and very cheap, owned by a 95 year old lady who gave up driving last year.  It’s a 1.2 SXi semi-auto thing; I can’t see it needing much for a MOT which will occur the week after next.  Just need to find a battery that will fit in the stupid under-scuttle location as I’m not buying a new one before the MOT result is known!
       
      Have a final pic of the three shades of blue together
       

       
      Apologies for such a lengthy post; I will try to update as cars come, go or are put up for sale, and if I get time I’ll add photos of some of the many BL vehicles I’ve owned (although being a luddite means I don’t have digital photos of the majority).

      I’m not sure if there’d be much interest in a roffle for a topless mills o’matic swede at this time of year but before I stick it down at the barn for winter, I thought I’d mention it on here...
      Its a 2006 9-3 1.8t with just under 90k miles and a good service history. It has been Mrs NMs summer chariot of choice but has now been stood down by a Berlingo diesel...the backup plan is to park it up over winter before prepping it up for sale in the spring where it would get advertised for its market value but due to the impending arrival of another toy, if someone on here wants to win it for the frankly ludicrous sum of £12.00, then step right up!!
      Good bits...
      All electrics, roof etc in good order, decent tires all round, plenty of MOT, working air con, polishes up nicely, will come with new discs and pads on the front.
      Not so good bits...
      Silly tax bracket so £48 a month to tax, occasional lambda fault which pops on EML....will reset and stay off for a month or two, slight bit of pogweasleing on the n/s front bumper where it’s had a smart repair in the past.
      Only got a few pictures to hand at the minute but if there’s any interest, I’ll stick some more up in the next day or so.
      Roffle tickets as it is are £12 each or two for £20 and the car is located near Burnley, Lancashire.
      Form an orderly queue.... 🙂

      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.....

      Going to roffle for a fiver a ticket, two for £8, 3 for £11
      In good working order apart from the head gasket. 
      Put the ventilated header tank cap on, take it easy and bring spare water and you will be able to drive it home. 
       
      It doesn't overheat, just pressure in the cooling system. Cylinder compression is good. 
      MOT April 2020
