So I picked up this little thing in December for a mere £950. 60K on the clock.
'Twas rather brilliant when a week later the handbrake cable snapped whilst climbing a 20 floor multi-story car park. Since then I've had both front discs and pads done, along with the handbrake cable repair. Does need a service but I'm rather tempted to give it a go myself.
I'm not 100% sure what my plan is for this little motor but I absolutely love it.
I picked up a slow puncture on one of the rear tyres the other week. I've been after some new alloys so rather than pay for a new tyre, I managed to pick up 4 alloys with some pretty good tyres for £60. Found out yesterday that the alloys I've picked up sell new for £379 (http://www.wheelworx.net/Wheel-Brands/Kei-Racing/17-Inch/17-Kei-Racing-Suzuka-Hypersilver-Alloy-Wheels/prod_282.html)
That said, they are a bit knackered...
Quite looking forward to refurbishing these myself, however! Only two came with the KEI Racing centre cap unfortunately, which helped me identify them. As you can see the curb rash is mental, and its the same for the other 3. Nothing that some bondo won't fix... right?
If people are interested, I shall get some photos up of the refurb progress along the way - and eventually getting them fitted.
Hey Mojo, welcome to the forums! I acquired my CC in December and I completely agree....they are amazingly fun little cars! I'm certainly interested in what you get up to using it as a project car so do keep us all informed. I'm having a few snags with mine and people here have been really supportive and helpful. I would also suggest joining www.peugeot206cc.co.uk as there are some really informative people there as well.
As for the alloys, I don't know if you have heard of a you tube channel called Chris-Fix, but he's got some great videos up on all manner of car repairs and improvements. His one on alloy wheels is here www.youtube.com/watch?...pxoY&t=44s
Edit : I can't see the Offset mentioned for those wheels, are you sure it is suitable? Also, if you go up to 17" wheels you may need to connect up PP2000 and alter the wheel size in the ECU to correct your speedo reading.
Sorry for the incredibly late reply, but unfortunately those alloys are going to be a bugger to fit. Not only will you only use 4 of the bolt holes, but the offset is waaay too big. If you are going to do it anyway, then i am interested to hear how you get on?!
