2004 Peugeot 307 XSi 170BHP - For Sale £650

Recommended Posts

Thought I'd test the waters to see if anyone's interested in this. I bought it off facebook marketplace, it was absolutely bollocksed when I picked it up, it's now quite a bit less bollocksed but I just don't like it very much.

 

Good points:

-Can be supplied with a remap to 170bhp from the stock 136bhp, goes like a greased weasel.

-Quite high spec, has fancy stuff like heated auto folding mirrors and cruise control. Some of these features actually still work.

-Just been serviced.

-EGR/DPF have been properly dealt with, not a problem for MOT purposes.

-Pretty good on fuel, the trip computer says 42mpg average, but that's including plenty of short trips and being sat in traffic. It's got a really tall 6th gear so on a motorway run you'll be in the high 40s.

-A/C and climate control works well

-I've spent more time/money than I should've getting it sorted out. It's had:

 

-Front coil spring and top mount bearing

-Front anti-roll bar bushes and drop links

-Rear axle bushes

-Rear shock absorbers

-Front discs and pads

-Front brake hose, brake fluid flushed through/changed

-Handbrake cable

-New replacement front grille

 

-New windscreen washer pump

And probably some other stuff that I can't think of right now. MOT 'til March-ish next year.

 

Bad points:

-Currently has an antipollution system warning up on the dash, I think this is something to do with an air temperature sensor - I changed the one in the manifold a while ago, have just changed the MAF and wiped the fault codes so hopefully it's sorted, but assume the fault's there for now. It drives fine even with the fault codes, but I'll update in a few weeks.

-Some of the toys don't work or are erratic - the CD changer for example is disconnected because it's cacked. Auto wipers and headlights don't seem to do anything either.

-Some alloys a bit scabby

-Has a rattle from somewhere, sounds like a heatshield - will try to take a look at it this weekend.

-Slight wheel wobble at motorway speeds - I don't think it's balancing. I'm using the car for a 400-mile round trip every week and it doesn't bother me too much. Also seems to pull slightly to the left, I've had it tracked and it's better now but is still there.

-Possible timing belt kit needed. There's a receipt somewhere for a belt at around 95k IIRC, the interval on these is 100K but one of the tensioners sounds like it could be noisy - not too sure. If I wanted to keep it I'd stick a belt kit on it.

 

If anyone's interested, I'm in Bradford during the week and Reading at the weekends. I'm using it to go back and forth every week, so if you're anywhere in between I could stop off for your perusal. I might be interested in a swap for something wafty but I've just come into the possession of a mildly borked pisshat so a sale would be ideal. It's not a bad car really but I just don't like it, should give reasonable service for someone I'd hope. Not too sure on price, I think it's fair and it's definitely less than it owes me but I'm open to discussion. If anyone wants to swap for a Jaaaaag XJ6/XJ8 that'd be grand.

 

Not a clue why the pictures have been turned upside down - sorry!

It's a weird thing, but when I see a for sale listing with upside down pictures I immediately close the tab on my browser. It has the same effect as reading that the car won't run, or that it failed the MOT for terminal corrosion, but it's daft because it might be a nice car... I just actually can't tell what it is that's for sale.

 

Bad pictures don't always put me off - in fact they sometimes make me keener, like, because it looks like the seller hasn't got a clue, other people will miss it, I'll get a bargain, etc... But there's something weird psychological that happens with upside down pictures. I just can't take the listing seriously. Is it meant to be some kind of a joke?

 

Now the pictures are the right way round I see that what you're selling is quite a nice little car. So GLWTS, and have a free bump on me.

Thanks, I guess? I usually try to make sure the pictures are orientated in the correct manner, they were before they were uploaded but quite frankly I couldn't be arsed with turning them upside down then re-uploading them. Cheers djoptix for sorting them out.

 

I feel like I'm missing a joke with the shot that cavcraft has posted, but more importantly it features details of the supplying dealer sticker, which conveniently provided guidance on what I should've done with the car on purchase: (weigh)Bridge Motors.

I had one of these and the build quality was actually excellent - the last time i had drove french was a Saxo and they were worlds apart. I had the non-fap diesel (fnar fnar) and i think the above is FAP which includes a particulate filter just after the downpipe. Mine died from rotten sills in the end but it was a really nice motor.

Cavcraft is sour that they don't do Lexus lights for his car.

 

I'm not surprised, they are a highly desirable* feature. In fact that's one of the reasons I'm getting rid of this chariot, the hordes of ladies throwing themselves at me/the car is getting somewhat tiresome.

 

In other news, the MAF has not cured the antipollution warning - seems like it might not be boosting like it's supposed to as well. Still goes well enough but isn't 100%. Would probably take £550 as is.

 

This did leave the factory with a FAP, but this particular example is no longer burdened with such toss. It has been mapped out, so not the cause of the antipollution warning, and the exterior of the FAP is still present, so looks no different to anyone performing any sort of annual roadworthiness type inspection. Sills appear to be OK, did yours have a sunroof by any chance?

Still here, open to offers. Latest thoughts are it could be sticking VNT vanes in the turbo but I can't see an easy way to try the Mr Muscle trick. May have a look at taking the turbo off but that involves dropping the subframe - any potential buyer is welcome to have a go at this on the lift.

      Right due to a mixture of life being a pita and the lack of money and space. I really need to get a car shifted before September ideally.
      So although this wasn't in the original plan, what better than me offering two Cars For Sale / Roffles instead ! 
      Plus Points,
       2006 Met Black Fiat Stilo 1.6 petrol Active SW. 4 Owners , 48,912 only with Mot till next April, Starts, Run's + Drives fine and engine seam's to have plenty of get up and go. Clutch is ok too. Brakes seam good inc handbrake. Blowers work ok. Front Leccy Windows + Mirrors. PAS inc City Button, Central Locking, CD player.  Looks to have had a full new Exhaust and Windscreen replacement recently. Tyres all have plenty of tread and spare wheel and tool kit is present. No fault codes on Dash. V5 arrived today in my name. 
      Negative Points,
      Interior isn't great. Worst is being the headlining and rear boot carpet, but is 99% complete. Bodywork has some interesting dents see pics! Also has poor previous repairs to nearside doors and is declared on logbook as being a previous salvaged vehicle.  Nearside front door doesn't lock on the outside but locks fine inside. Tailgate rattles slightly [ needs adjustment ] No service history so Cambelt Roulette at present, but Fiat reckon next change assuming it's had one would be 72K. Clonking / Rattle underneath suspect anti-roll bar joint as advised on last Mot. 
      Despite it's appearances though this car has potential. I feel that with a bit of time invested and a few trips to a scrappy as I'd planned to do, would improve it no end. But otherwise it would make a ideal cheap workhorse / dog carrier etc as is, that would also last you till next April and beyond without too much bother. 
      Car is untaxed but will Sorn if not Sold shortly and no Insurance. 
      Just want back what it owe's me so far. AS price is £350 firm or £6 a Roffle Ticket. 
      If the Cavalier sell's before the Stilo, then I may keep this car as originally intended but we see how things go.  Worst case I'll sell both and have to go Car shopping again! 
      Car located Midlands near Jct 10 M42 at present.

      I bought this as a stopgap, its purpose has been filled, and now I need something more economical.
      Its a 2000 Mazda 323F, with a 1.8 petrol engine and auto box (4 speed with lock out in top). Its in decent enough condition, looks tidy, starts, runs and drives with no major issues, decent amount of poke when needed. MoT is till November.  Interior is very tidy and shows little wear. Leccy windows, mirrors, sunroof which all work, AC which does not. The downsides are there are 3 small chips in the windscreen, all less than 10mm. And it could do with a tyre changing on the front as its cracked with age.

      20190412_183554
       
      More photos when its stops raining. Oh, and economy-wise it averages around 33mpg with mixed driving, more on a long run.
      Looking for £300 for a sale, or prepared to roffle at £5 if theres enough interest, could do with shifting it relatively quickly though. I'm also up for swaps, preferably for something small, petrol and manual. Small Peugeots are a preference.
      Oh, and its in Lincoln. Sorry.

      Hi all,
       
      As you know I've got a new car! 
       
      I like it.
       
      By no means is it perfect but then I didn't expect it to be. I'll dedicate this thread to the Ins & Outs of the 06 plate Saab. 
       
      Looking through the car there is no Service history - So I'll start my own, first job will be Oil & Filters change. Will get it in for reluctor ring change to at some point. There's also an error with the fuel filter, the sensors cover is smashed ergo, its letting water in putting the EML on.
       
      I shall sort those.
       
      Bodywork is fine, Very little in the way of rust/rot. Front bumper has clips missing so a corner below the headlight pops off, no great shakes - but I'll sort it. Alloys have a few scuffs & dings but will clean up nicely. Tyres are all nearly brand new- winter ones too. I need a new passenger side door mirror glass - there's a stick on lens at the moment over the top of the original glass as the original glass is somewhat damaged - I'll get that done soon (ebay).
       
      There's a knack to getting the key in & out of the ignition, put into reverse and then some more whilst lifting key is the trick. Maybe an adjustment can be made to fix that - in time!
       
      Everything electrical seems to work fine!
       
      Freebies: Dashcam (works perfect), Bluetooth system (again working perfectly), tyre compressor machine thing (in the spare wheel well)
       
      It runs & drives fine, no knocks bangs or clunks - and more than powerful enough - second gear it can pin you to your seat! 133k on the clock so its due belts, which will be done ASAP.
       
      It's also very very comfy!
       
      Going to get a full valet at the weekend and a good clean (pics to follow, Before & after).
       
       
      Keep your eyes open for updates!!!!
       

       
       
      PS - Interior shots to come soon!

      Ok, so I've discussed this with mods and they have said it's ok to go ahead.
      There was a book where a writer who was living off his girlfriend's income, decided he was going to start trading his way up with swaps, writing about his experiences along the way, the thing he saw right in front of him was one red paperclip, so that's what he started with. It's a great story and a great book and I thought I would try it.
      This thread is where I will attempt my "red paperclip" challenge and record anything interesting that happens along the way, meeting up to swap wherever possible, though me living in mid Wales does mean I'm a million miles from anyone, so this might not always be possible.
      Not going to use a red paperclip as that's been done, so I'm going to start it off with.....
      A timing tool kit for V8 BMW engines, originally bought to use on a 2003 range rover....
      Same as this:

      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??
