Peugeot 106GTi (Moonstone Blue)

Every now and again something comes up for sale that ticks all your boxes, for me I'd been looking a totally standard peugeot 106GTi for a long time, Low milage, preferably 1 owner from new, good service book basically a mint example.

These been such a small pocket rocket, every young lad has pretty much owned one and modified it (me included). I first seen this fine example about a day into an online action, wasted no time in ringing to source some more information. I got all the answers I was looking for so offered the seller a price to end auction, in which he declined. I had to do this in case someone else was to do the same thing, but seller assured me he'd had that much attention he wouldn't be ending early.

Next up was to view it, which I did later on in the week. I was very happy, the car lived up to it's description (that's rare in itself) he kindly told me who had the most interest in the car, which was a Peugeot dealership wanting to display this example....sales pitch? Maybe but at this milage I could well believe it, the seller was a real nice genuine guy with a real knowledge of the mechanics.

The reason for the sale was the owners health, it was deteriorating to the point were the dvla were looking to revoke his license. The elderly owner who is an Peugeot enthusiast could not warrant the car any longer.

Next I had to set myself a limit on the auction as it's very easy to get carried away as you all well know, within the last 10seconds I made my move..and won, within £40 of my final figure.

So here it is..

2002 Peugeot 106 GTi in moonstone blue
1 owner from new
14,308miles
Full service history







Original tyres with 5mm of tread all round





Original factory paint on calipers



This will be the only forum I will be posting a thread on the Peugeot.

The plan..

I've had my fun in the past with these cars, for me now I want to keep this as close to mint as I can. This was my era car so to keep it in original form and let others enjoy the condition hopefully for years to come, just as the previous owner would have intended also.

Wow great find and so pleasing to read your plans are to keep this stock. With such low mileage etc it would be a crime to deviate from OEM. Keep this as an unmolested classic.
