Peugeot 406 Coupe - 4 sail NOW £550!

Recommended Posts

I have been (very mildly) berated in the past for starting a thread about an early noughties car in the modern section, so I was in two minds about where to put this. 

 

Having said that, it is a development of a car very popular here, and the more common version is relatively well thought of too. As this is model is relatively *RAER* (the type in general, this specific car is one of a limited run of 400) and due to unpopularity, is pretty much at the bottom of it's depreciation curve, I think it just scrapes in here.

 

However, my usual warning applies; anyone of a nervous disposition, with a particular aversion to nineties French tat, please look away now.

I’ve never been to Rye. But apparently some of Bob Marley’s ancestors have, his grand grandfather Frederick was apparently born there. Maybe the lack of women drove him to move to the West Indies and tell his great grandson about this tale, giving birth to the idea that eventually became “No woman no Rye”

 

Frederick was a big fan of preserves as well....

Many apologies on the colour, I was hoping to find something brighter, but colour is way down the list of requirements.

 

Here it is:

No pez shot, it's got plenty.

 

It's a 2.2 HDI Silver Edition. They only made 407 silver and black editions, 257 diesel and 150 petrol, half in black, half silver. Nobody knows whether the odd seven are black or silver; apparently they were built by mistake. 

 

As I said it's a 2.2 HDi, it's manual, and the alloys & half-leather interior are unique to this model. It also came with the upgraded stereo and cruise control.

No 'good old boys' drinking whiskey, at least not in the vicinity of the railway station.

No. We do all the street drinking on the other side of that supermarket you can see in your photo. Don't know about whiskey mind, White Lightning is still very much en vogue in Rye. 

 

Anyway, top purchasing. I'd love a V6 Coupe, although I hear they're Oliver Reed thirsty.

I've just bastarding typed out the whole sales post, then lost it.

 

Anyway, it's for sale. I haven't 'bonded' with it. Another car I like the idea of more than the reality; it's just not me.

 

To re-cap:

MOT until November, 163k. Foibles: passenger window occasionally jumps out of it's channel, locking doesn't always work from the drivers side. Boot handle is a bit gammy (TADTS). Minor rust where the Italians bolted on the shapely back end (again, they all did).

 

This is for sale only; we'll have no roffle here. £750, but a generous 10% shiters discount applies. On top of that, I'll let you negotiate a fight 3 1/3rd % off before I ask you to 'owd aht yer ahnd'. For anyone who can't be bothered to do the hilarious* maths, that's £650 to you squire.

      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
    • By Tigerfox
      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.

      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!
       
      So..
       
      -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.

      Just arrived today, on my breif test drive it seemed all good, no issues with engine/ box etc, no warning lights on. Nice inside with all the buttons i tried working. Scabby bits a plenty as is to be expected from such a premium brand.......   WARNING !  might cause you to turn into a tediously dull Golf driver and start quoting mpg figures.  Plenty room in the glovebox to leave your personality before you exit the vehicle and mix with others...…
