I got bored the other day, and figured i'd need something new to drive once my porsche sold.

I bought this Peugeot 106

Apparently had been listed a few times.

Bought it sight unseen, only really asked about the clutch - and typical dealer. Lied.

It'll be a cool little project.

Its an XSI so has the 1.6L, 5 speed manual. Everything standard

Has a crazy amount of receipts and wof sheets ( rebuilt head & practically every wof is a clean sheet aside from odd tire every couple of years )

Good things:

Has quite a lenient wof.

Has rego.

Has 4 wheels.

It starts ( just )

 

Bad Things:

Clutch slipping

Shocks fucked

Brakes suck

Who ever painted it, shouldnt be allowed to paint.

Broken Left park light / indicator

Broken Passenger mirror

No fog lights

 

Goals:

Replace Clutch

Replace buggered shocks

Fit brake upgrade

Lower 40-50mm

Tidy up dents & broken parts

Tints

Respray white & Fit / find Rallye Guards + stickers

I've started ordering parts

Got me a exedy clutch, all new shocks, got a brake upgrade, threebond cleaner all turned up

Got a front lip to mod and put on too.

Waiting on my short shifter, gear linkages, new key and lowering springs to turn up.

 

Using Early 206 GTi Rotors & Calipers, so goes from a 244mm to a 266mm vented + bigger calipers ( was hoping to go to the 288 but realised the wheels were only 14" so unsure if they'd fit )  So they'll be cleaned, painted & rebuilt. New Rotors & pads.

 

The shocks are a crazy funny length, the rears are tiny. Like 320mm extended.

Nice. Neat little cars. My sister had a 1.4xsi the same colour for a few years. Love the topendy feel that tu engines have. 

You’ll  need 15s to clear those brakes?

Nice!  Good to see someone finally picked it up and is doing something with it.  Where’d you pick up the shocks from?

even to clear the 266s? Shiiiit

I didn't bother reading too much or measuring.

Just merely went to work and ordered the junk.

Worse comes to worse, i'll try find some 15" minilite reps or something
