Hi this Is all new to me so I would love some feedback/constructive criticism along the way.

So this is Merlot the Peugeot, I bought her for £515 and I was in love with her when I saw the Ad.
2.0 Hdi 90 (A/C).
 

 

 


And straight away I really didn't like those steel wheels they had to go. Since I used to work for a Peugeot Breakers I picked up these for £40. I also Had the back windows tinted Limo Black not bad for £55. Also the Gti fuel cap on there and a Phase 2 rear boot strip.

 


I did also buy a Gti half leather/suede interior for £30 and sold my old one for £28 Wheeeeyyyy.

 


After having problems with the spoiler I decided to take it off and get some bolts for a more secure fit In the mean time I got a wheel upgrade 14" to 17" Gti Alloys


 


Bloody Diesel pipe on the drivers side meant I had to change the profile of the tyres to fit but Damn do they Look good. Possible refurb and Sprayed Black/Gun Metals Grey?.

 


Not that you can tell but I also fitted Phase 2 front lights and had a nightmare re-wiring them (lessons were learned).

Well I decided to turn my attention to the Dull Boring interior of the dashboard that horrible tango coloured MFD and A/c display *shivers*

So me and the Girlfriend decided to get creative and Sticker bomb the center console and I De-Tango'd the displays thanks to a guide followed on here.

 

 

 


Didn't like the Aluminum gearstick and took one from a 307 instead, Your Opinion Yes or No?.

And the Dials, I know I made a mistake with the type of LED's So I could do with some advice on what would make them look better.

 


So yes I got the Spoiler bolted and Bonded Bought for £20 in China Blue resprayed and fitted badly the first time so got a body shop to have a go, £20 Well spent.

 


The dent on the passenger side of the hatch was there when I bought the car I just don't know if I want it pulled or have a Vinyl to cover it as it isn't that noticeable apart from the primer showing

So apart from the sub amp 6x9's and upgraded Door speakers I haven't Photo'd I have Bought a Flip Key from Ebay and a vinyl sticker for the third break light that says "WOAH b***h" when you press the brake pedal. Its so childish its funny.


So future plans Well it is a slow old lump 2.0 Hdi but I would like a rear Gti axles with Discs and ABS so its got Discs all round and looks better behind those alloys.

Phase 2 from and rear bumpers I believe I need matching Phase 2 arches and arch liners for the front?
A,B and C Pillars in black (I hear these can be found on the Rolland Garros)
Gti pedals
206+ Or M3 style rear lights

So that's Merlot in all its Glory so far. What do you Guys think?. Have I chaved it up or does it look acceptable to be a feature car on 206.Info haha!

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

ok so I have updates of whats been done. Still saving for the stage 1 remap ~(any donations welcome ^_^ )~

Rear lights black Led style thanks to a forum member No_Offence I bought these off drove all the way to Leeds and had a really good chat.

 


I have decided to Pleather the door cards I was sick of looking at that dull blue material


 


I also got carried a way and went mental all over the roof lining with it too Mwauahaha PLEATHER EVERYTHING!!!!!

 


I have started to spray the a,b and c pillars and have discovered I reeeeealy need to replace the drivers seat belt the plastic is cracked and its shocking.

So like I said I'm still saving up for the the remap and the tax has just been paid now the cam belt is due so again no money for this month But soon I should have more to report. Hope you like it guys and If you know anyone who's got some EXY phase 2 bumpers/arches they want to sell or donate let me know Very Happy


Oh and I got these installed for all you slow f****rs in Tesco car park who walk out in front of me with your trolley's like your invincible.


 



So Update again ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Decided to Pleather the s***ty looking dull grey Parcel Shelf.

 


Had the Car de-Catted ( jsut a pic to show where the new pipe was welded

 


Out with the old boot carpet....

 


and fitted this beaitiful laminated wood floor instead.

 

 



and I am pleased as a pig in s**t here But this is my new tow bar toy (like the jap drift toys/charms)

I would love your opinions on this...

 



Beats your smurfs and sponge bob's plush toys doesn't it?

Update
________________________________________________________________________________________

Fitted my sports bumper with the Sp Grille and pressed metal number plate (Thanks to harry for the bumper and fogs)

 



I took out the A,B and C pillars and painted them black.

 


 


and Finally the Black Suede I ordered came and was rapidly fitted on the roof, I think this looks so much better than the old gray one.

 

 
 

 


I am looking for some ideas for the sun visors and the most likely option is to go for paint.

As always I'll keep you posted

The car looks really good mate, the 17s made a world of difference. Have you thought about a stage 1 remap? More power and a few more mpg too. Keep us updated and with plenty of pics too! Very Happy

That sounds like a good plan with the remap but I have a few things to be looked at before the next mot. 2 drop link bars and my abs ring on the drivers side I'm sure is faulty. How much would a stage 1 remap be?

Go here...

www.hdi-tuning.co.uk

I plan too when funds permit, £99 for a stage 1 to either 120 or 125bhp (depending on other bits). Highly recommended on several forums...

I've even got my cable and laptop setup, I just need to get to the end of a month and have the money left!

Your car looks great, definitely got some inspiration for mine!
I know nothing about cars, but I'm trying to learn. Just got my first car (Peugeot 206 Fever) so sorry for the stupid questions.
