1999 Peugeot 406HDI (110) Executive Estate - £575

Recommended Posts

Just advertising this for a friend.


1999 - Dark metallic blue 406 estate, manual. Executive spec which seems to indicate a bit posh, so it has lots of fake French plasti-wood, heated black leather seats, drivers seat has memory settings, lecky windows, good old cassette/radio, lecky sunroof, what appears to be cruise control, tilt/rake adjustable steering wheel, lecky door mirrors, also auto dimming rear view mirror but that appears to have 'bled'. 


MOT expires in May but he is happy to put another MOT on there (the front O/S tyre looks to be in need of replacement, so that will be done. The alloys look nice. Body looks bloody solid, although there are giffer dings here and there and some scratches but I will try and improve those this week. The worst dent being a small palm-sized ding on the front wing which should be something that could be improved by a gentle push outwards. The seats will get a bit of leather conditioner but there is a worn patch on the drivers bolster. However, the seats have a PBK comfort rating of 9/10. 


The bonnet has a rust blob on the leading edge, N/S front corner, paintwork on the bonnet looks a bit tired. Can't recall if it has A/C. It will have a good clean and brush up anyway and should be ready to rock and roll.


I will check the mileage on Tuesday but the last MOT showed around 124,000 miles. 


Price with new MOT will be £575 which I think is pretty reasonable for what seems to be a big diesel waftmobile.


No tow bar.


Location: Enfield. Proper pictures on Tuesday.

Oooo this would be perfect as my V70 failed its MOT last week and I need a car before next weekend - do you know when it'll be MOTd and ready to collect?

Could be done quickly I imagine. I'm going to be over there on Tuesday afternoon to give the interior a bit of a wipe over with some cleaning fluids. It's mostly dusty and a little muddy here and there.

What will become of the Volvo? /vulture

I've got a bit of work to do on it this week, then I was going to get it re-MOTd and put it up for sale on here. I can PM you some more details if you're interested?

Well she is all vacuumed out and much cleaner inside now. Sadly I didn't have the chance to do the outside.


Drivers side tyre was done and an MOT obtained. She has a 1/4 of a tank of devils fuel.


Heated seats seem to work as well.


Mate said that the car drove just lovely.


Awaiting collection by Jayb on Thursday.

The 'Big Pug of Waftiness' is now back at Jay B HQ.


I drove back in perfect comfort with both the heated seats and air conditioning on. It drives very nicely indeed, I've forgotten how smooth the old HDI engines are (I had a Xantia years ago).

      Moving this over here in case anyone has missed it. Needing this gone within next 2 weeks due to losing parking space. Couple of faults but nothing major. Its mot'd til jan and in good running order. Price drop to £300 as is for quick sale, otherwise i fix the faults and stick it on bumtree for twice that amount! Would make a good winter beater for someone

      Going to try this on here before the fun that is eBay or similar.
      My mum has recently replaced her trusty old SportKa with a newer 500 and currently it’s just sat in the garage.
      It’s only done 38k with I think mum being the third owner plus a very large file of bills. As you can see from the MOT history ‘a lot’ of miles have been done in the last few years....! Has the leather interior, an aftermarket Bluetooth kit, Air Con that works and four good tyres plus working remote key.
      It has had some attention by a welder in the past but the filler area is solid and other than a few obvious bits on the sills and corners of the rear bumpers is in nice condition.
      If anyone is interested please let me know. I’m back there later this week so can look at the paperwork or anything else on the car in more detail.
      She’s looking for about £750-800.
      Car is currently SORN and located in deepest Lincolnshire (near Spilsby).

      Departarting from the norm, I'm being lazy and have actually managed to convince the seller to deliver to my house at no cost. It's only the other side of town but haven't got the time to collect today.

      2 hour countdown starts at 9am

      Hot on the heels of last week’s collectioneering of a Xantia, another collection starts here and now. Well it is probably a collection as long as the car is as described, but I am optimistic.

      Clues. It’s enormous yet quite cramped. Never had one before and it could be considered blessed, saintly even!

      It's the green one.
      If you're proper horny for it then PM me, but anyone with cash can buy a car any time. Meh.
      Would roffle, but CBA with the admin.
      Therefore, funtime!
      Another KruJoe-spec 99p start AUCTION...
      (GBP (Pounds Sterling) bids only, no licked Twixes (John_F, I'm talking to you), bid increments 50 pence or more, that's up to you. Auction ends 24 hours after the last bid. Other T&C's may apply if I haven't thought of them yet.)
      It's a risk, but I'll take it.
      I've thought of a number as a reserve, roughly bridge price plus today's £50 MOT fee, so above that, I'm happy. If it doesn't work, we'll re-think, but his is will be a cheap car for one of you lot.
      Central, so close to everyone on mainland UK.
      Collection: most days/times are possible, evenings are good. Relaxed timescale, storage is not a problem here. I can bring you to it from Skipton bus or rail station.
      The Car.
      My dependable daily for two FTP-free years. Ex-JohnK and Bramz. 
      1.4 Rti run-out model, lots of toys. 
      Cheap tax and cla$$ic policy friendly (£140pa, Carole Nash. A.Flux quoted similar).
      Tested until 31 May 2020, advised on two back tyres.
      Not yet 62,000 on the dial. Likely to be SORN'd before June. V5 here, with loads of history.
      New oil and filter last week.
      Good batt, exhaust, brakes etc. There are a few minor niggles, I've just lived with it. Character, innit.
      Squishy-comfort velour in fine fettle. (Almost) everything works.
      The bodywork scrubs up well but there's some bits of rust if you really go looking. It doesn't stop it being a respectable motor… until… last week one of my favourite brothers rubbed a tractor down the side, damaging two doors and the mirror.

      All still work fine, and I still have the (undamaged) plastic strip from the door. I don't have the arsedness to try improving it cosmetically and I'm ready for a change of daily anyway. The worst would likely push out from inside. As would the small bit on the arch – it's single skinned there. Until that happened, nobody has ever turned their nose up at it, and it has attracted a lot of positive conversation. 

      99p anyone?
