2002 Peugeot 406 HDI 110 LX Estate, MOT March 19, Basingstoke, £275.

Recommended Posts

This has been a very dependable tool in the past few weeks but I've managed to dibs something I wanted when it first came up for sale, then missed out on, so this has got to go to make room for it.

 

The details:

 

191,750 miles on the clock, but it drives far better than you'd think. Will go up as current daily.

Tidy inside, and now sporting fetching green mats from a certain fucked (and soon to be gone) Citroen. 

Great on fuel. I reckon you could do about 800 miles to a tank of motorway driving. 

Good stereo, OEM fit but it sounds brill.

Brilliant heater and working air con.

Everything seems to work....

Arm rests!

 

Not so good

-Rough body, no paint issues so to speak ( a dab of retouch) but a few dings and marks on the corners, including a missing chrome insert on drivers side front bumper.

Steering wheel shows the mileage.

Handbrake is rubbish!

No service history, but knowing the previous owner, it will be a good 'un, it definitely drives like it's been treated well. No smoke!!!

 

Previous MOT said it had an oil leak, dunno about that as it's not dripped any.

 

Doesn't seem to make any odd noises. I took it 1000 miles a few weekends ago and it was flawless, no issues and nothing weird.

Clutch is reasonable. No slip. Way better than the bang style clutch of the 156.

Tyres are alright, not new but reasonable as well. 

 

 

 

I only have the one photo as it being parked outside covers it in tree sap and bird poo, whoever buys it will be treated to it being cleaned.

As seen at the 'Small Glen' near Aberfeldy. But in reality, it's in Basingstoke. Delivery may be possible if it fits my plans.

 

Available from next week, roughly Wednesday or so onwards.

 

It does have a tow ball.

Just to confirm.

This was mine. When I bought it there was a shed load of history and a pyramid of bills for stuff done. Mrs 95s son had it off me for a few months. I'll try and grab the stuff off him if it's findable in the shit tip of his room. I think there's also a couple of spare keys.

If I hadn't got flat4alfas dad's C5 I would still have this.

Well recommended purchase

This would save me a winter of rattling about in the Laguna, your close to me and I could pull £275 out of my overdraft in about 3 seconds... Grrrr I hate you putting stuff up for sale, your too bloody close!

 

The only problem is it would hold a shit load of vacuums, I had that problem with the Xantia, it just became a shed (despite already being one)

Mmmmmm

 

Bramz, you might haz a PM coming...

 

It puts my insurance up to £70 a month, but thats up for renewal in Feb, so 2 months left...

 

ASM will give me £204 for the gooner if I drive it to them, which is more than do-able...

 

Amy even smiled and didnt say no...

 

But as Skattrd rightly says, I'll feel bad if your track record holds true...

Only due to being changed so close to the end of the policy I think, I did a fresh meerkat just because I was curious and it went back to the same monthlies as the gooner currently is £55, because I R a speeder and live in beiruit apparently even with 9 years no claims

I've been a passenger in this today, and GIB someone. Considering the miles the interior is very clean, and there's no untoward noises or anything. I don't like dizzlers generally but the HDi engine is very quiet compared to the clattery old XUD.

Beko

If you pm me your details I'll send across whatever I can find

It was a good pile of paperwork. I've a fuel and oil filter and 1 side or rear pads. Embarrassing I only did nearside when I put a new caliper on that side. Mitigation twas passing it down

Hot off the press, collection is tomorrow!

 

insurance starts at midnight, they only increased my premium to £63 a month from £45 for the rest of the policy, plus a £25 admin charge... Will have to suck that up until feb when it's due for renewal. Must be the extra 127cc of RAW POWAH! (gooner is 1870, 406 is 1997)

 

Have PM'd Bramz asking for the number on the new keepers slip and I'll tax it later, then collect it tomorrow!

 

Quite handy as the gooner has 70 miles of diesel left, I don't have to put any in for next week.

      Loving home sought, must sell through no fault of its own etc.
      I have a 54000 miles (ish) 2002 K11 Micra 1.0 CVT 'S' for sale, it has factory alloy wheels and an aftermarket stereo/CD player (not too bad actually). For the uninitiated, the CVT gearbox is like a twist and go jobby, put your foot down and you whisk off surprisingly quickly for a 1.0! There are no gears as such, but there is a sport button - and it actually makes a difference! A surprising one. It being a 2002 facelift K11, you get a better ignition system (no dizzy, individual coils etc), a sleeker look, doorcards that the fabric peels off of and a CVT gearbox that is not made out of cardboard like the earlier N-CVT types. The engine is chain driven, so no belts to worry about.
      I bought this in April for mum to mooch around in as she's having a difficult time just now, a few mobility and financial issues (not a great combo!) and so I bought this for her, but also for me to mooch about in when I don't want to use the Hearse. It's no longer required as mum's situation has improved, and she's now bought herself something. So I have Nubbins back, but need the funds back from it which is sad because I really quite like it. A big surprise to me, IS NOT SHIT! My sister had these for her first few cars back when they really weren't worth anything, hers were all totally shit and she accidentally did quite well with the bangernomics philosophy, binning them when they were about to fall apart into small rusty pieces, needed a clutch etc.
      So, it has almost full-service history, it was MOT'd and serviced in March this year, it had a new full exhaust system in 04/2017 (even though only the rear box was blowing) and a full set of tyres in 08/2017, a new LHS caliper in 2016. It seems to have been very well looked after by the PO and previous owners, the PO had it since 2015 (the invoice for £2245 is in with the SH) but their dog got too big to fit in it! So, the logical thing to do was get a Skoda Roomster, cos they're roomy right? It's in the name and everything. My gain, I won the ebay auction for a smidgen over a grand, and when I picked it up the PO was very apologetic that it had an empty petrol tank, so gave me £50 for fuel - lovely people they were. The lady's husband (yes, a careful lady owner - not ragged or anything) had a collection of stuff, a Disco 3 (Shit rather than shite methinks), Volvo P1800 (gorgeous), S-Type and Merc C250d estate that had been to the moon and back. That's not mentioning the farm shite, many pieces or machinery, tractors, agricultural items I didn't know what they were etc.
      Apologies for the dirty, shit pictures - I haven’t had time to clean it yet and it still has a load of mum’s crap in there! Will clean, tidy and post better pictures when time allows - possibly Monday.


      The drivers front wing has a dent, the door card fabric has come unstuck from the card itself and there is a small crack in the front bumper RHS lower corner (wasn't there when I bought it!). Otherwise it is a very smart little thing, with low miles, no rust that I have found (or been reported at MOT time) and so should keep motoring on for some time. Mum has been all over the south west in it, I have been up to Bristol and back once a week for the last month (160 mile round trip) so have total confidence in it - it will sit at 70+ on the motorway quite nicely, although steep hills make it a bit revvy and noisy. It's a 1L though bruv, innit.
      It owes me £1K, I need to sell it to pay for university tuition fees and need the funds back for this purpose. Any shiters want a punt? Offers accepted. Is located in East Coker, Somerset and isn’t taxed or insured atm.

      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.....
