My S2 Rallye

I picked my Rallye up form Middlesex in May / June 05. It was total standard and in good condition apart for needing a service and good polish.
It had full Peugeot service history with two previous owners and only 22,375 miles on the clock.





After it’s first polish at its new home.




My first job was to fit some Blisten Sport dampers at the rear and Blisten Sprint dampers with Eibach 20mm Pro-Kit springs to the front. The rear was lowered 1 notch to match the front.
When the car was of the road I also re-sprayed the original steels, as they where starting to look there age at this stage.


New Sparco Suede steering wheel fitted.


With the handling now sorted I ordered a Peugeot Sport “Group N” De-Cat 3” exhaust system.
The new exhaust really made a noticeable difference to the car. A lot more free reving at higher revs.
A Gti rear spoiler was also fitted to match my Chav Exhaust??


I then moved on to the interior and I got a set of Sparco Sprint seats.




Other bits and pieces are the K&N replacement air filter and the Sparco white mud flaps, which I’m still not sure about. But the help to keep the car clean.

That’s pretty much the work I’ve done on the car to date.

Some Pictures:

it looks lovely matey, a fine car. the white mudflaps are a little different but are kinda transparent so look wrong IMO. Ditch the white ones and get some red ones on there, they look alot more normal and suit white s2's a treat.you've done the hard work fitting em so you've already got the holes to screw into.

Cheers for all the good coments guys. Nice to know that the hard work hasn't gone un-noticed.
Like you all said, hard to know what to make of the mud flaps.

James the car was picked up in Middlesex. It was orignally from Birmingham. At the moment its sitting on 26,953miles. As much as i would love to have it sitting up in the garage for only weekend use, i found that i used my S1 less and less and in the end sold it.

I don't think the white mud flaps look that bad at all, the more I see them the more they grow on me.

I got my Rallye from Birmingham too by the way!

I picked up a Raceland 4-2-1 manifold there last week for the rolling roll day on the 20th.



I'm happy with my results, 122.1 bhp @ 6249 rpm and 116.9 lb/ft @ 3986 rpm. from just the manifold, Pugsport and air filter. Very happy with that.

Here's a picture of my car on the RR.

I like the way you have done you're airbox... any more pics of it etc... and coilpack relocation (if its a 16v one) etc... Thanks... (Got one of the inductions in my garage at home ya see!)

Have you used the filter within the housing, or using a k&n Panel, and the housing to draw more air?

James P- the airbox is for a 16v engine, i had to cut a piece out of the back of it to allow it to fit in round the coil pack rather than moving the coil pack. I then sealed in around the area i had removed when i had it fitting how i wanted it.
When i had that done the existing pipework for the air intake fitted in to the back of the air box, so i just left it at that. There is no filter in the air intake box but i changed the standard air filter for a K&N one.

bengt40- the steering wheel is a Sparco PRO in Suede Black 350mm dia. I have it about 8 months now and the suede is still fine. It could do with a bit of a brush but still looks good.

yeah i know bud, but this isnt exactly fitting the whole induction, i know how to fit the whole thing, i.e plumbing it all in etc, but wayne hasnt done this, he has just used the housing, without moving the coilpack etc, made a hole and sealed it again, with the standard induction system etc and using a K&N panel... so was just wondering how! lol

yeah i'd be interested to know how this has been done. i always wanted to fit a simota without the filter in it to draw more air in,like a kind of big scoop.any pics would be appreciated as moving the coil pack is a job i can't really be arsed doing.

I'm going to give mine a go 2nite, so will take pics etc...

Thinking instead of cutting bits out for the coilpack, i will heat up some of the housing, and then mould it (sort of) and if any cracks, seal it with a bit of flexi plastic and silicone sealant... well, thats the plan!

Yeah i cut the airbox and shaped it to fit over the coil pack. It was alot of trial and error to get it to sit right and even at thet it still rubs the underside of the bonnet. I'll get picture for you later tonight when i get home.

It works out pretty good and it's bound to get alot more air into the engine.
I'll get picture up later tonight for you's.

I went to get pictures last night, but my mate is off on holidays with the camera. I'll try and get the loan of a camera over the weekend and get some shots for you.
But, yeah you do have to cut a fair bit out of it to get it to fit over the coilpack. Just do it bit by bit and you'll be grand.

Hey, I can’t believe its been so long since I last up dated this. So anyway here goes for everyone who is interested.




Well, where do I start, the last change to the Rallye i made was purchasing a set of 15” Speedline Comp 2 rims with Goodyear Eagle F1 tyres. At first I was a little unsure about my new purchase, I really enjoyed the fun of the standard steels with Yokohama A359’s fitted but over time I grew to love the extra grip the 15” rims gave and decided to keep them. Other than a Sparco Upper Strut Brace the poor wee Rallye has been sidelined as I experimented with the dark side, also known as BMW’s…

In August 06 I purchased a Avis Blue 318i Sport coupe, I loved it and kept it for 10 months, in that time I fitted genuine M3 Contour rims, M3 Wing mirrors, Eibach Pro-Kit springs, GT Corner Splitters and lastly a Magnex exhaust system.



As I said I loved it but after being to a few BMW meets the urge was on me to move from a M3 Rep to the proper machine. So with a few phone calls to the insurance companies I sorted insurance on an M3 (which isn’t easy in the Rep. of Ireland.)
So with a decent insurance quote I was of in search of a M3. After numerous viewings of so called “MINT “ M3’s I found this little gem.



It a 97 M3 Evo 3.2litre in Estoril Blue. It was perfect, Cream leather Vadar interior and totally standard with only 3 owners from new. I then kept this car for 6 months a decided I had to part company with it due to long commute to and from work and being an M3 good MPG wasn’t its best feature. So I sold it on to a local man who promised to look after it.

So with the M3 gone I needed a new motor and I made the move to diesel, I didn’t want to but for every day use and travelling to work it was the smart option and for once I actually took it.



It’s a 04 A3 2.0TDI, 140bhp, only modifications I’ve done are changing the standard springs for Eibach Pro-Kit springs and the MTM tuning rims.

Now with a sensible everyday car I can focus on finishing the Rallye and taking it to as many shows and meet ups as I can this summer.

My plans between now and the summer are as follows:

Finally fit the 206 GTi brakes…
Swap the S2 Eibach Pro-Kit springs for S1’s.
Fit the lower Strut Brace,
Get new Steelies and fit Yokohama A048 tyres. (Think they will look the part at shows. )
Full Service,
And add about another 4 to 5 coats of polish to the car…



How the Rallye sites at the moment. 


My new “trainee” mechanic Thomas.

Again Kudos on the car - looks fab

I'm going to get a set for my German thing, the Rallye is being put off the road almost permanently.

Yeah no problem patrick, whenever suites you is fine, they've been laying in the back of the garage for over 3 years so a bit longer wont make any differance... LOL

Your plans sound good Darren, you should keep it as a road legal rally car, then you could still take it to and from track days if thats what you wanted too... You should start up a thread of you progress and build, i'm sure there would be loads interested in seeing it all.

There's a thread on frenchcarsireland with all the stuff in it, it's a long one though! I'm hoping it will still be road legal, I'm keeping it taxed and just transferring my insurance over to it for trackdays so I can drive it there and back, the new car isn't much use as a tow machine!

Well, i decided to remove the Sparco's form my car and re fit the orignal seats. I'm not sure if i was bored with the sparcos or i'm getting old, but i decided to go back to standard. lol.
It only took about 15-20 min's to do, just 4 bolts in each sub frame held them in.

Cheers Nick,

I haven't actually drove it yet, but it does feel strange to get in and out of. Defo is alot higher. Taxing it before the end of the week so i'll give you a full report soon.. lol.

I'll probably be sliding over and back from the passanger seat for the first few corners...

Yeah they look good there so i'll leave them. lol

To be honest i'm not exactly sure, there where the 3 or 4th set of springs i've tried. But the arch on the front is approx 30mm above the tyre if thats any help to you. so i'd say about 35 - 40mm, my car seemed to sit very high at the front for some reason. I'm happy with how it is now and the comfort is great for everyday traveling to and from work.

Are you making a list plans for the new project ???

No - just trying to think of how far to drop the Rallye - i seen Apex springs on another forum with a 35-40mm drop. I had seen (RMS)Scrob's drop of 50mm and thought it looked well but then seen another 50mm drop and it looked crap.

So i was thinking what car do i know that has a nice stance, hey presto....yours! So id be happy with a sensible drop rather than dropping her on her arse completely. You lowered the back down by one spline?

Thanks Carl, i'm very happy with it.

Nazor, i'm happy with mine, i haven't seen Scrobs GTi apart from in pictures, but it did look well in the pictures.
I must actually email him to see where he got his mud flaps form. My back archs are starting to look a bit rough from the stone chips and tar on the road lately.
