Newbie from Dublin

Evening folks. Just added to my garage with a 1997 Peugeot 106 GTi. It's a bronze/orange( metallic and comes stock. She has 99,000 miles from new and one lady owner. I plan to keep her standard apart from a few plans. It's really a blank canvas to be honest. My question to the oracles on here:

What suspension, brake setup(discs and pads), exhaust system etc do you all recommend? And what else should I be thinking. Love to hear your input.

Thanks in advance,

Barry

Hi Barry.

Welcome to the forum and congratulations on your purchase.

I owned a 1998 106 GTi in Diablo Red back in 2004 or thereabouts; I remembered it very fondly and it's the reason I bought myself a 106 Rallye last year!

I am far from an expert around these parts, but suspect the forum will recommend something like:

- Exhaust: Peugeot Sport group n exhaust with dummy cat
- Brakes: Unless you want to upgrade to bigger brakes, the OEM discs are pretty good; maybe swap the pads for something like Mintex 1144 or Ferodo DS2500 though.
- Suspension: As far as value for money is concerned, Bilstein dampers and Faulkner springs are well reviewed. If you've got a bit more money to spend, then AST coilovers are quite popular.

Thanks Wayne. Only picked the car up today, first port of call..the body shop.mechanically first impressions, needs ARB's, running a little rough but nothing serious. Wheels need to be refurbed also but thinking of putting 206 wheels on instead as I've seen a few pics and they look nice. I've looked into Homologeo's advice(thanks), and liked what I have seen. Any other ideas/advice is more than welcome too.

Barry

Welcome along Barry. The colour is called Blaze yellow BTW.

Is it the nice clean one in Cork I seen on Donedeal?

Tis Dave, thanks for the colour heads up. I believe you may have one or two yourself?
