5 essential things to do

1, put fuel in
2, service it
3, drive it
4, clean it
5, look after it

if you want a faster car then why not just spend the money on a faster car

:D What kind of 206 is it exactly? If you're looking some inspiration, styling and performance wise,

1. 307 xsi wheels
2. Performance panel filter (pipercross is my preference)
3. Remap
4. Gti spoiler
5. Eibach lowering springs (30mm)

Would consider the visible exhaust from an xsi if you don't have it.

I'm sure there's a reason you didn't buy a faster one like running cost, insurance etc.

Sorry, I saw the first message and was waiting for the PM.

I do have some bits:
Pipercross Filter, Offset topmounts (for coilovers - no longer have the coilovers), SKF topmounts (although I may yet keep these), a phase 2 rear light (left) and an anti-roll bar (21mm). Might have one or two other bits kicking about but I've sold quite a lot.

They're all off my GTi 180 but more than likely fit others. I am quite happy to sell them to you but: trustme and reliable406 are right.

I'm assuming you're a young lad and I absolutely don't want to be a dick about it but you'd be best served saving the money so you can buy a faster car sooner rather than chucking money at a 1.1 206 in order to maybe shave the 0-60 time down to 14 seconds.

Of course, I say this as someone who put a pancake filter on my 1.3 Mk 2 Escort and almost definitely didn't even get sub 16 second 0-60s out of it so I completely understand if you totally ignore me.

Let me put it another way, spend the money on getting girls into the back of it. Your car may have only one third of the power of a 180 but the back seats are the same size. :thumb:

Cheers, Jim

Oh, and wear a condom. Kids cost money. Car money. :nod:

If you do any modifications to increase power tell your insurance company.
Worst case scenario: You are at fault in an accident involving injuries or death. Then your insurance finds you have undeclared modifications. They heave a sigh of relief as they wash their hands of you and you are in deep deep trouble.

That's not quite how it works, the insurance company are still obliged to underwrite whatever damage you do. However, because they'll void your policy, they will try to recover their losses from you personally. Which is worse. Still, they might refund your original premium. Or, more likely, knock it off their bill when they sue you.

Also, I believe declared mods are visible on a PNC check. So, if you ever get pulled over (do people still get pulled over?) anything obvious that doesn't come up is an easy nick.

Cheers, Jim

I stand corrected Jim. Thanks.:thumb:
However my original point about declaring modifications to your insurance company is still valid I think.
