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.

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.

      First some background:
      I was brought up with no car interest, a car was transport and nothing more which resulted in a selection of poor cheap cars being the cars of my youth.
       
      Fast forward many years (just over 9 years ago) and I have a wonderful* Vauxhall Vectra estate to carry us about. Unfortunately it is crap and throws fault codes at us with nothing being there when it is checked (even at Vauxhall)
       
      As Mrs T is the main pilot of this chariot with the two little miss T's on board, it has to go.
      The hunt is on for the new steed to safely and comfortably carry the family around. I have a company car at the time so big journeys are not an issue.
       
      ebay is my weapon of choice to find the new family car. It has to be good value cheap for no other reason than I am tight.
       
      Weeks of research with lots of cars that are too expensive and too far away for easy collection end up in my watch list.
      Finally a possible is spotted in Fife. I go and have a look and find a poor looking but solid car. One previous owner and lots of history.
       
      The auction was to end on the Saturday at midday, we were going to be out! I decided on how much I was willing to gamble on it and on the Saturday morning I put in my max bid but straight away it went to my max bid, I was winning but it had three hours to go with no room for me to go up! We went out anyway.
       
      I spent the next three hours kicking myself for not bidding more while we were out as it was the first car I had seen that fitted my criteria. Fate was in charge.
       
      On returning home I go straight on ebay to find 'Congratulations.............'
      For the grand total of £500 I had just won this fine vehicle!
       

       
      It has 5 months MOT and after fitting seat belts in the rear for the girls car seats it is pushed into daily service.
      My gamble and subsequent use results in a perfectly reliable car that actually does what it is supposed to do.
       
      Even more importantly Mrs T loves it so a win all round.
       
      All my cars have names (most are earned over a bit of time) and this one is called 'Gwendolen' ( G reg car and from Wales originally. I hate the name but I am not going to argue)
       
      That sums up part one, more will be along later (probably much later)

      My Compact is up for sale again, MOT until November.
      Manual, 2l turbo diesel, 165k miles.
      £750

      I've replaced a load of stuff over the years, been meticulous with servicing. Brand new turbo, crank pulley, injectors, inlet seals, handbrake mech, vortex filter etc). It had a new BMW battery from dealer a couple of years ago. New spare wheel, toolkit, books, wallet, first aid kit box etc
      Swirl flaps in the inlet have been blanked. Has black M-sport alcantara interior, with bucket seats (fully adjustable) and leather bits. It's really clean inside and out. Cool fold out rear windows like old Japanese cars but they’re auto electric powered
      17" E90 alloy wheels with four 5 month old Landsail tyres
      Two keys, service/manuals, dealer keyring, etc.

      The only things wrong with it:
      the glow plug ECU is reporting a fault.
      The front bumper is stone chipped.
       It has always started first turn of the key in whatever weather in the four years I've had this, so I'm sure the glow plugs are working, but it's just giving an error. It has had this fault in INPA since I've had it.

      It shifts quite well with 150bhp, I've managed 70 - 80mpg on a gentle run over 200 miles, but always get an average of 60mpg. There's no rust on the car, it's pretty mechanically sound I've done close to 70k miles in it I think. Only the crank pulley has failed on me in that time.

      Copied over from Shite In Miniature...
      Note for future reference...  I've decided most of my Matchbox (-sized) cars can go.  It's a vast collection,   Most have been repainted at least once - by me, obviously.  My eyes and hand aren't good enough to do them again.  I've got way too many to list so ask if there's something you want and if I've got it, we can do a deal.  Most will be 50p each plus postage, so it'll make sense to build up a parcel.
       
      I thought it best to do this, then I'm not clogging up the main thread.  This could well go on for months.
