Hello people..

Post by StealthSteve » 27 Feb 2012, 21:39

I'm Steve, 23 from York.

I had a 306 3dr in red a year and half ago, kept it for a month the scrapped it because engine was seized and working under it thru winter drained motivation out of me..

But, I have just bought myself a 306 Sedan in a darker red; 1.9 'TDSD'? for the grand sum of £95, half a tank of diesel and alloys included.

Only issues are N/S rear light cluster is slightly broken, new one ordered off Ebay already.
No tax.
No MOT, but I've driven it down the street already and it sounds sweet as a nut.

I also have a 106 1.5D in blue, I'd like to know what bits apart from front hubs I can move across before scrapping it? I love the car, had that 2 years and it also cost me £126 ready to go but it's served it's time now, any idea's what I can get off it to make it the most efficient change-over as possible?

When I'm not using either of them i'm on the bike, that's 'my' fun ;)

Cheers,

Steve.

MOT fail sheet:

There was 2 more; 1 wheel missing a nut and 1 wheel has tyre wrong way.

Parts are already ordered, less than £40 total, £40 for MOT.

The alloys have a locking nut which is an oddment and was missing at sale, so I ordered one for £2.50 today, comes tomorrow so by Sunday it will be ready for a retest and taxing.

Looks like an NS125R:-) I had one two , first one got nicked. Lovely little bikes. They'll indicate over 100mph if you put the right pipe on them :-) I went to a CBR600 after that, never regretted it..
