Peugeot 306 cabriolet 2.0 for sale in blue £130

Recommended Posts

OK, the Pug is being replaced on Monday with a one owner 89000 mile Merc CLK. She is uneconomical to repair at the local garage after my wife's cack-handed driving and general abuse of what was once a very smart and pretty convertible.I have a quote for scrap and it's £130, so I am not going to advertise for £300 or the scrap man gets it. It will be £130. Numberplate will be on retention later today and will revert to its original 52 plate number.


So, the bad bits:

clutch is expiring and hasn't got long.

needs a full service - badly! Some oil filters will come with car.

roof has a hydraulic pipe leak and rear window is knackered (spare ripped roof with good window (they zip out) available with car.

Two dents to rear

speaker trim and speaker on passenger side door buggered.

crack in windscreen that won't pass an MoT.


good points:

one careful owner and then my wife from new

two recent front tyres

49600 miles - yes, totally genuine mileage.

has an orange hardtop and fitting kit available for extra £70 - makes it look like a jaffa cake missing the chocolate but still looks cool IMHO. This offer is only available if you take the car - I will advertise the roof priced more sensibly if the car goes for scrap.


Has potential to be a nice car again - and these cabrios are very pretty.


Car located in the Forest of Dean. Available from Sunday.

Many years ago I had a phase 1 one of these. One of the hydraulic pipes got nipped in the roof mechanism. Peugeot only sold the pipes as a full set with a load of other stuff for loads of money.

I had pirtek make me a new pipe. It was sub £100 if I recal correctly(thirteen years ago I think!).

Currently owning a pair of these fine beast's, if anyone does take it on and needs any advice on sorting the roof or any other issues, feel free to give me a shout.☺️

I'd love to buy it myself but I fear I'm pushing my missus's Peugeot patience far enough at the minute!

If there is no interest would you sell some parts from it before scrapping?

the hydraulic hoses for the roof are £300 new if I remember correctly, for the pipes, less secondhand, I guess. The cabrio is basically a 2.0gti. You do get scuttle shake but it's nothing like a Vx Ashtray cabrio. The Pug is well built, goes like sh*t off a shovel and is relatively economical when pootling about. It also looks gorgeous. I would like it saved, it's just the money needing spent on it isn't justified unless you can do most of the work yourself. There is a spare roof - good only for handles, lining and the zip out rear window. I can get £100-125 for the hard top on its own and will do, if I scrap the car, but the tango/blue looks quite cool.


Campbell, how much would the roof be?

I doubt I can get this on classic insurance but I'll check.

Of all the 306s I've owned, I've never owned a van or cabrio.

depends on what you want - I'd rescue the battery (swapping out its old dead one), stereo and a few other bits anyway as my local scrapyard will simply crush it. It is too good for that.

My last response was quite brief - apologies.


I loved my time with the Sundance Yellow 306 Cabrio. It was superb and never let me down. I, however, let it down twice when running out of fuel (at that stage the gauge didn’t work!)


They’re a great steer - mine had a strut brace on it which I imagine helped a lot. I only sold it because the roof shit itself and I couldn’t find anyone who fancied the work.


I’d absolutely have another. They’re the prettiest cabriolet of the 90s imho and with a hardtop really is an all year round car.

I think the guy is called Braddon59. Roof can be operated manually.

Yep that is me.


Changing the hydraulic pipes is more fiddly than difficult. It's also the cost issue, if I can recall mine were around 250quid for the whole set, but around 30ish individually.

Their lovely cars,look great, drive well and are quickly dissappearing. The hardtop makes a great addition for winter motoring too and pretty much eliminates any scuttle shake.

Barely run in at that mileage...


So long as it's not rotten it's got to be a steal at that price surely...


I'd definitely snap it up if I had room. Never even sat in one, but I've a lot of time for the 306 in general, especially the facelifted version and one with a roof you can remove can't be a bad thing. Nice colour that too...

A friggin roffle for a £130 car? Just buy it if you want it

I don't want it, but I would invest 2.50 in a ticket, and would actually be arsed to go and pick it up if I won.

Currently provisionally sold.

Yes sold. Unless something catastrophic happens!


These are my other half 's favourite car. This is the right colour too. The price is right as is the location. I even have a space it can live in now that I have just 'sold' (bridged) my C15.

Excellent.  Very fair pricing and hopefully off to another shiter.  Incidentally my 306 Cabriolet remains untouched in "the car that hated you most" category.  It just loathed my existence and did everything it could to make me fall out of love with it very quickly.


Tell me more about the CLK.... I'm massive fan of them. Got this honey a month ago.

      Short version of a long thread
      Bought Nov 17 with a blown engine
      Put new engine in that was worse than the old one
      Put another 70,000 mile engine in out of a 330D that I saw running this time
      It's got loads of history inc recon gearbox and suspension done
      Drives ok , no warning lights on , 2 keys, one needs a battery , 12 months mot, everything works inc AC
      Needs the blower direction box sorting , it's on your feet, could be 5 minutes , could be 30 mi utes then theres a whoosh as something frees off and it's all working normally
      I had a Google and it's something to do with vents, the box goes misshapen, I read a screw in the right place pulls it back into shape
      Inner rear arches behind the back doors need welding , heated screen only demists the passenger side
      It'll come with the original 18" wheels and wheel nuts as well as the 19" that are on it, but the 18" tyres are close to the limit
      Qualifies for modern classic insurance , adrian flux quoted me under £200 TPFT , I went with A plan at £300 fully comp
      I haven't advertised it anywhere else yet
      Original post below
      I've been looking at Range Rovers for a
      few weeks , in the past as I have a very competent/cheap mechanic I've bought a few projects that have worked out Ok but not a RR
      I've found one with an engine problem, not too far away guy wants shot of it so he'll take £1000 for it , it's a 2003 HSE with 150k on the clock, MOT history looks very good, it's tested until next april and he said it's had gearbox work in the last 6 months
      It's a really bad idea isn't it ,put me off with tales of woe, I'm really tempted to go and see it and risk divorce

      I know this is not the usual car to see on here but Tigerfox Jr has a baby on the way and he is discovering how expensive they are.
      It is a 2003 231 version with the 6 speed gearbox and has only done 34k. I looked at loads before finding this one and it is very nice condition
      Starts instantly, recent new battery and uses fuel at a alarming rate ! 
      Mot until July and would expect it to pass as it has only done 500 miles since the last one
      I have more pictures and it is advertised elsewhere for £1795 and a forum discount applies so £1675,  NOW £1500
      Leather interior, air con, working electric and heated seats, bose radio/cd
      PM me if you want more photos or contact details.
      Car is in South Leicestershire

      Brief background to this:

      I swapped my Jaguar for this car 2 and a half weeks ago as I was desperate to scratch my v8 itch, a client who works in my office bought it last September as a winter hack from his father in law. He was always complimentary towards the jag, I've always fancied a V8, so when he told me he was selling it I asked if he fancied a swapz and he was up for it!

      Unfortunately it's came at the wrong time for me, as my hours at work have halved recently and I really need something with economies as I'm applying for jobs with a commute longer than my current 8 miles a day. A petrol V8 unfortunately won't be suitable.

      So to the car, it's absolutely brilliant tbh. Absolutely huge inside, comfortable ride, sits at just under 2k revs at 70 and goes like a fucking rocket with the foot down. 300bhp from the V8 engine. It's the ultimate barge. Gearboxes are a known issue with these cars, this one is smooth AF. selects every gear perfectly and goes through them smoothly when progressing. It has 103,000 miles on the clock, the car has full service history until 92,000 (mostly dealer) which was in 2009, it's barely moved in the past ten years,a couple of hundred miles between MOT'S each year. It was put back into service last summer, there's receipts in the glovey for an oil and filter change and an engine terraclean. Aluminium body on these cars as well so no rust, it scrubs up very well. 2 remote fobs and a spare 3rd key. Has a parrot Bluetooth thingy which is nearly new, it's been properly fitted, I'll leave it in there. Private plate with comedy RFL lettering included.

      That's the good bits, so what about the bad?

      There is a judder when braking above 35/40 mph. Brakes work well but can feel a pulse under the pedal. Will need looked at.

      Rear brake light warning light on,there is a light out on the drivers side, will get this replaced

      This car has previously had a coolant leak from the reservoir bottle and also one of the hoses, the previous owner repaired it prior to me buying it which cost £££ I believe, as access isnt great in the engine bay. It hasn't leaked since. It used to leave a few drips overnight on the ground, but has been dry the last couple of weeks.

      Tires have decent tread but have two different brands on the front and rear,which is a bugbear of mine.

      Aircon needs a regas m9.

      And that's it really. Car is MOT'd until July, and is located in Glasgow. £1750. I know it's not the usual AutoShite giveaway price but it's a beast of a machine. And I need to recoup my jaaaaaag money. A quick glance on autotrader has rough 3.7's and non quattro 2.8's for over 2k. Any questions please fire away. Cheers

      So for various reasons, mainly money and hopefully, impending engagement/wedding (sshhhh) this is deffo for sale, with a discount for shiters.
      Currently, I am having the alternator replaced, as it basically died yesterday. I've sourced a good quality second hand one from a breaker with some warranty, and it's been checked and proven to work perfectly. It arrives in a couple of days, and I am paying to have it fitted. So the car is currently awaiting this in the garage.
      I've already got an alternative vehicle sourced and don't need any PX's, just a straightforward sale. This was purchased from Colc of this very parish, and has been fantastic, alternator issue aside!
      -130k miles, FSH - stamped book, countless receipts and paperwork, totalling thousands of pounds..mechanically absolutely brilliant. Recent stuff like turbo and other bits, engine is sweeter than your proverbial nut
      -Full leather with heated seats, Sat Nav, Cruise Control, dual zone climate control..all working perfectly!
      -recent full service by me approx 2k miles ago involving oil/oil filter, pollen, air..fuel filter included but I ran out of time and haven't actually had time to sit and do it since
      -rust free! underneath it is fabulous. Seems to have had a very recent new exhaust system too.
      -MOT till 19th November 2019!
      No knocks/bangs/ghosts/borrowers/cockroaches. It really does drive brilliantly. Comes with 3 keys, 4 matching Michelin Cross Climate tyres. Only negatives are it has a ding to the rear tailgate, and theres a small patch of paint that flaked off on the rear bumper thanks to aggressive car wash peoples.
      I'm located in Quinton, Birmingham.
