    Default Wanted: Peugeot 306 august 1999 build onwards

    Hey guys, Iím look for a low kilometer 306 with service history, preferably white but thatís not essential, and preferably a one owner car. The model doesn't really matter so long as it's a 3 door and not a diesel, so I guess that means Iím looking for an XT, Rallye, or a GTI6. It would also be preferable if the car was in Queensland or at the furtherst northern New South Wales.

    If you have one for sale or are looking to sell in the very near future, or even know of someone wanting to sell, leave a post here or send me a PM, thanks for the help.

    The only 3-door 306's from that point forward were GTi6's.

    The Style, XT/Rallye and XSi were all 5-doors.

    ok then i guess i might be looking for a GTI6 then, or at least a 2.0l N5 thats 3 door and non diesel.

    i guess i also never payed atention to how many doors they had

    No such thing unfortunately The Style was a 3-door but had a 1.8.

    All the diesels were 4 (N5) or 5 (N3) door so you don't have any problems there.

    Whats the budget? Theres a few things on carsales, Drive...that sort of thing.

    Spoken to Cullens?

    yeah, we rang Gerry today and talked to him, he hasn't got anything in his yard but said he's on the look out. The budget is really $18k maximum and won't stretch past that, so that would rule out most GTI6's, unless ofcourse someone wants to know there car is going to a good home

    i've put an enquiry in about the silver 3 door style one on drive

    theres also a GTI 6 in queensland on the sunshine coast for 12k on car sales, but at that price i would be very sceptical

    also is there anywhere else to look at, besides car point, car sales, drive, and the trading post ??

    To be honest I don't reckon that silver one is great value. For an N5 Style (and it is only just an N5, not the updated N5 from '99 onwards) with that amount of kms I'd want to pay 11-12K really.

    That GTi6 on the coast is cheap because it has 190k on it I'd be interested to see what it is like with those kms on it!

    If you see anything in Sydney you want checked out, let me know. Lincoln and I can go and have a look.

    If I were you I'd go for an N5 update XT or Rallye. There should be a few XSi (non update) around that price too.

    G'luck.

    Wish I still had mine

    What's wrong with an S16? They're at bargain prices now.

    its for a family member and they said they definately don't want a 5 door ... looking at things in sydney would be a problem due to the fact, that we couldn't easily get it back to queensland ( unless of course you're offering to delver it as well )

    age and reliability is a big issue with regards to the purchase, as well as being set on an N5. Also we're not looking at huge amounts of performance here, and it's for a lady owner so others things come first. If i could i would look at brads s16, but its not my descision

    Why don't you look at the high k GTi6? Don't write it off before you see it. By all means afterwards if it's no good.

    realiability is a big issue here. I wouldn't sugest not looking at it, but the person in question doesn't want a car that will need $$$'s thrown at it, to keep it going

    well, basically we're looking for a 3 door N5, with lowish km's, preferably with service history, and one previous owner and if its at all possible it would be good if it's white and where looking at buying for 18k or less.

    For 18k, I'm not sure exactly but that should be the bare minimum for a decent average kilometer GTI6, if not i guess an early N5 3 door Style would do. Being a lady owner, the 1.8l 16v will have more then enough grunt

    The real preference would be to get an N5 facelift, but if we go that way Iíve been told that the only thing available with 3 doors and not 5 will be a GTI6 (for what reason peugeot discontinued base model 3 door 306's after 1999 i don't know ) and as I said previously, for 18k itís going to be tough finding a 6 that hasnít got itís fair share of problems

    oh well, my brother will be going to look at that style this week and i will tell you all how it goes. As it's got 70k kilometres and is a 1999 model, and the cam belt has probably never been done we will be either pushing for a lower price or getting them to do it. We'll probably also push for a price closer to 12k




    Another question, is it possibly to get an early 206 GTi for about 18k, and if so what's the performance like in comparison to a 6... i know that this question creates a tif between GTi and GTi6 owners but relavent information would be much apreicated.

    i'm trying to put together a few other options, the person in question does not like Xsara's, but may be intrested in a C2, or maybe even a clio (i even know where theres a decent cup for 19k , but at that price its probably allready gone , even so i will be pushing for a look at it, even to tyre kick )

    I seem to remember seeing some 206 GTIs for around 18k. I think they all had high mileage though. The thing I've found moving from the 306 to the 206 is lack of room. They don't actually look that much smaller when parked beside each other, but the 206's sides taper in a lot more above the waistline. This means interior is fairly cramped. I'd guess the 306 would be better value (less dollars) than a similar condition 206 as it is no longer in production. Generally this has a lowering affect on resale value for the first owner.

    Also, don't overlook a post 97 facelift 306 with the 1.8 DOHC if you find one with low mileage. The engine seems to be indestructable and has plenty of go because there is decent torque. If mine was still running sweetly when I sold it, there is something to be said about it's durability. I tended to drive it like it was a sports car, lots of revs & lift off overstear. (It still runs beautifully for the new owner with 175,000km).

    You could try looking at Chevron Prestige at Bowen Hills. They specialise in Euro cars. Especially Pugs. Alternatively, you could also ring some of the specialist mechanics (ie Peugeotech in Northgate) as they would probably be aware if any of their customers have their car on the market..

    And my rant, why (oh why) does everyone overlook the 306 sedan. It's a beautiful car to drive, quite handsome to look at and has a huge boot for it's class. I'm not sure, but I think, they may retain their value slightly better as they weren't sold in Australia in large volumes. Oh yeah, their crash safety is awesome. A mate had one, he came around a corner too fast, hit gravel, slid off the road, rolled the car 3 times, it flipped end over end, landed on the boot and fell onto it's wheels in a ditch about 50-60 metres from the road. AND all he got was a bruise from the seatbelt. Strangely the airbag never triggered.

    Maybe that's because he wants a 3 door and a sedan has...erm... 4...

    Anyway, I reckon a 206 GTI or just a regular 206 3 door would suit more than a GTi6.

    Yeah, you've got me there. But I've got to wonder what advantages the 3 door would have over the 5 door.

    we went and saw the silver 306 style on drive, and over all it wasn't very impressive at all. The paint work was scratched, which is really noticeable on a silver car, and i mean scratches deep enough not to be able to be buffed out and a really shabby interior... over all a very rough car for to many $$$'s

    It isn't about practicality, more so looks. Also being a single or at most two person car 95% of the time, we don't need or want the 5 doors. This car won't be needed as a taxi

    Still looking, but I spotted this in Sydney

    Peugeot 306 Style

    Itís cheap but Iím skeptical of the high kmís. What is the timing belt interval for 306ís?? 80k kilometers?? What Iíd be thinking is that if you bought it, it would at least cost you a timing belt in the near future so really itís not all that cheap unless you could knock the cost of that off the price.

    Iíll probably ring up and ask about it, but Iím just wondering when things like timing belts, etc are due i'm pretty certian its around 80k km's.

    Also, what i'm wondering is which model 206's have disc brakes all round. I'm looking for 206's as well but would prefer disc brakes all round

    Tried Autotrader.com.au .. a few NSW 206GTi's in the $18-19K mark private sales that are 2001 models (and less then 75,000kms) .. worth a look.
