PROJECT 106 GTi – Its new home

23 Mar , 2017  

Yes, faithful following! It’s been long, far too long since we updated you with news on the trusty little 106 GTi. The last time we updated you was moving the 106 from its warm, sheltered garage to being an outdoor hood rat, and yes, that was the third time i’d ever driven it! So, what […]

So it came time to move the 106 from its long term hibernation, a good chance for a quick catch up along the way.

So it’s been a while since the first ever vlog on the 106. This one is even more cringey than the last – it has more of my face in it. Sorry. Fingers crossed the next one will be from behind the wheel!

PROJECT 106 GTi – The history

25 Oct , 2015  

I thought it would be worth creating a post detailing the rich history our Peugeot 106 GTi has with it. As soon as i saw the wedge of paperwork that came with the car i knew it was the one to have. Theres something about knowing a cars precise history that gives it more of […]

PROJECT 106 GTI – Making it look prettier

27 Sep , 2015  

I realise it has been a full 7 months since the last update, however the car is now well over a hundred miles away from me. It used to sit on my driveway so daily I was tinkering with it, but now that has become a tad harder! Anyway, things have progressed and moved on […]

PROJECT 106 GTI – Paint Correction

7 Feb , 2015  

Before the 106 GTi went off to its winter home we thought it deserved a good going over bodywork wise. It had been sat on the drive 4 months without being washed. In fact it had only been washed once since we have owned it and that was the second day. From a distance it […]

PROJECT 106 GTi – Winter Storage Drive – vlog

30 Nov , 2014  

First ever vlog for carwitter here! I thought my musings and chat would be of interest to a select few who are following the project. I genuinely didn’t know if the 106 would make it the 2 and a half hours from Milton Keynes to Lincolnshire, previously i have only ever driven it the once […]

PROJECT 106 GTi – Rust – Part 2

29 Nov , 2014  

As we mentioned in our last instalment it was time to get the rust corrected on the Peugeot 106 GTi. I wanted to get it into storage for winter before the weather really turned, so I promptly got it booked in with the guys over at Beaniesport. It wasn’t good news to start with…having ripped […]

PROJECT 106 GTi – Rust

31 Oct , 2014  

When i purchased said Peugeot 106 GTi i checked in all the normal places for rust, the only place i found a minor amount was the rear offside wheel arch. This hadnt gone through to the boot so i didnt worry. But i thought i best err on the side of caution. Removing the rear […]

PROJECT 106 GTi – The lumpy idle

28 Sep , 2014  

Driving the 106 home for the first time was a dream, effortless pace, smooth revs and…a lumpy idle at traffic lights! The 106 starts fine, warms up for 2 minutes then the revs drop ever so slightly from about 950 to 800, the car starts a deep vibrating for a few seconds before returning to […]

PROJECT 106 GTi – The first wash

14 Jul , 2014  

So after picking up my new toy it needed a good clean to see what was hiding under those dirt splattered panels. With paintwork sounding like sandpaper to the touch, I decided it needed some intensive cleaning. Covering the little Pug from roof to sills in fallout remover would get the ball rolling, washing this off […]

PROJECT 106 GTi – The start

7 Jul , 2014  

I already have a car, a perfectly good, working car. It rarely goes wrong, it has extended warranty so when it does, i don’t have to pay a penny…so because that car is all to easy and reliable i went and purchased a 1999 China Blue Peugeot 106 GTi. After having my eye on them […]
