Peugeot 405 1.6 Saloon - on for Saturday draw!

Recommended Posts

Something amazing has come up, so this being the sensible economical family car I'm moving it on.  If it doesn't go quick I'll more the 205 on instead once it's tested, which would make much more sense as I like it a lot.

Good:

Screenshot_20190806-100125.thumb.png.92793269f5c07891d67f4b2c341d95c6.png

Running perfectly. 

Pretty economical; guessing very high thirties or low 40s.

Quiet

Smooth

Peugeot ride quality

Big boot.

Soft comfortable seats

Bad:

Needs a new side repeater lens (£15 on eBay)

Could do with new tyres on the front as they're worn Chinese ditchfinders

Bottoms of the doors are scruffy.

Passenger window needs help to go back up.

Located in Durham, delivery available at cost.

Jesus, I've just watched that video back.  Maybe I shouldn't be so brutally honest in shit like this.

 

IT'S A GREAT CAR, BUY IT.

It's an honest enough critique for a sub £500, 25 year old shitter. A new pair of front tyres were next on my list had I not found a K11 I really wanted and they would totally transform the way the thing drives. The other wee things aren't that tragic, I've had cars with a fucked leccy window at 4 years old, but the squeak from the rear can be bloody annoying. I don't think it's the exhaust btw because I put a new one on from the cat back and it did it before that was done.

I was quite proud of my genius* repair to the broken driver's mirror, it works, doesn't it? You can even adjust the angle by sliding it left or right. 😛

Actually, put me down for another 3 randoms for Daughter No1.

She adored the 205 so this will be a fantastically dismal wedding present, I’m sure her groom to be will be impressed*

 

* if by impressed, the words uttered include “for fucks sake” then we’re golden as he knows about my roffle exploits up to now

Any chance of an interior pic?

Not really, sorry.  It's full of kids and car seats.  I think there might have been some in the for sale thread which is in the appropriate section though!

      With the month of January nearing its end, the time has come to let go of the Galant. Its been an absolutely brilliant car while I had it, but with my move to Edinburgh approaching quickly, and the lack of space to actually store most of my cars anywhere (I'm sure theres nothing to worry about), this one needs to go. I've written plenty about the car before, if you want an extensive amount of photos you can check my general fleet thread here or check my cross European collection thread from December here.
      If you can't be bothered, here are the details.
      1995 Mitsubishi Galant GLSi Hatchback
      1.8 4G93 petrol and a manual
      Just 61k miles, I've put around 2000 of those on it myself over the last 3 months, with a trip to Germany and back again resulting in no real complications.
      MOT until June
      In general, its in incredibly nice condition. As far as I know, it was granny owned and always garaged, with it not doing many miles at all over the last couple of years. It was then used by a family member since around May of last year, until I bought it in October. Its clear that its been well cared for, without any bodges or stupid modifications to be found at all, excluding the painted wheel trims and radio.
      MOT history looks great, too. Its generally rust free but apparently did get a patch underneath a few years ago, which still looks solid. The bodywork looks great, with no damage or corrosion visible anywhere. There is however a giffer scrape on one of the corners of the rear bumper, and unfortunately, an H from the Mitsubishi lettering is missing. I've therefore deducted 500 quid of the actual market value from the asking price.
      Mechanically it is very solid, too. The front tires show their age and the idle isn't where it should be (members of the Autoshite team have concluded after some collaborative fiddling that it might need a new coolant temp sensor, idle control motor (the one that opens the throttlebody) or something else. Fortunately everything is cheap and all components extremely easy to access so that should hopefully be a quick fix.
      All of this is getting way too long so just have some pictures.





      I might have to add that this happened on the Autobahn. Probably the fastest it ever went in its life.





      And look how practical it is to boot!

      I've set the ticket price to 7 quid which should be fair. I've got a strangely high number of people showing interest in this car so I'll just give everyone the chance to acquire it right here. 
      Lets go!

      This Citroen Visa was purchased at the weekend by five members of the forum, and is now up for a roffle.
      £10 a ticket
      £18 for two
      £27 for three
      Car will be roffled on the bonus ball as normal. The current owner of the car is Wuvvum, who doesn't have an financial interest in it. No profit will be made, and surplus over the initial investment* (£500) will be passed on to the roffle winner to help with collection costs. Part owners may also buy tickets in the draw. The car has an MOT until 15th September.
      More info here in the collection thread:

      Two other notes:
      - Roffle date will not be set until Wuv has the V5 back in his name
      - Car currently has a water leak which Wuv will be fixing before the new owner can collect.
      Off you go!
