    1998 China blue 106 GTI restored

    1998 China Blue with 101k and a FSH stamped book, original owners pack, many receipts and all MOT certs etc.

    I bought this a the start of the year as an investment for the future as these 1990's hot hatches are becoming increasingly rare and most are now scrapped or in very bad shape. I knew it was a great base to turn into an immaculate example, but due to not being able to build a garage for it now and nowhere to store it I have to put it up for sale.

    The car has had 2 owners and is a very genuine, straight car (HPI clear). I looked at cars with half the miles and they were in worse condition than this and rotten. Due to their age they all need work now, its just that many owners haven't went looking for the signs underneath. With this one I have done all the hard work. The new owner can enjoy the car or use it to take to shows etc and watch it appreciate in value.

    I have put 100's of hours and spent a large amount of money restoring the car and replacing parts in order to get it to a standard I am happy with and I am very fussy about my cars. Since ownership I have done the following, all work has been carried out by a performance specialist mechanic who I've used for years and trust to do the work properly.(a.i autosport)

    Cosmetic Work

    Any surface rust was removed where necessary to bare metal and treated with a rust preventer with the full floor and arches under sealed with dark grey Gravitex. It is immaculate

    One very small patch of rust was cut out and repaired on the front inner wing to a very high standard, seam sealed, primed and arches painted in china blue. The whole car is solid, no rust at all to worry about and has seen dry use only since the work was done.

    The rear arches were perfect and also re sealed, primed and painted china blue.

    Boot floor perfect so just cleaned and resealed with Gravitex

    Plastic panels and arch liners removed and cleaned, restored, dressed.

    Car was fully paint enhanced/detailed by PMG Autocare.

    Mechanical work

    New brakes fitted all round, genuine Peugeot parts

    New braided hoses

    New rear brake pipes fitted

    New Bilstein B8 suspension all round matched with Eibach springs.

    New rear axle fitted from IM AXLES

    New battery

    New gear linkages

    New drop links

    New horn

    New stainless steel magnex exhaust (very quiet) which wont rot.

    Alloys fully refurbished (inc spare)

    Brake calipers refurbished

    Wishbones and struts painted

    New continental front tyres

    New OEM wheel nuts

    New wipers and bulbs

    Full Service for new owner

    MOT until July 2017

    The car drives and looks perfect.

    No sunroof leaks or unwanted noises.

    It still has original windscreens fitted


    New gear gaiter and OEM knob

    Leather seats reconditioned

    New boot carpets and mats

    Standard clarion radio

    Dash Plastics and seats are in very good condition with very little wear, one or 2 small blemishes on the front seats on the Alcantara seat base but the rears are like new. I will get the bases recovered if the asking price is met

    I have a huge folder of photos of all the work carried out in stages and the parts used. I can send them to genuinely interested parties and will try to ad more to the advert later.

    Viewings welcome. The car is in Belfast close to airport and ferry terminal.

    Any questions don't hesitate to ask.

    I have over 120 photos of the car at different stages but I can't seem to load them on here, PM if you would like some by email.
