    Default Anyone know this GTi180 (SYD)?

    Howdy folks!

    Does anyone know of this baby?

    http://www.scscars.com.au/Peugeot%20...%20details.htm

    [I note the rims are from a 307CC, not original GTi180 - due to centre caps and 205/50/17 tyres. Void insurance????]

    Tempting.........time to switch to 'NERO'!

    It looks to be in excellent condition and low km's, but it's $2000 dollars above the upper limit of the listed Redbook value ie: $13,100 - $15,100

    You could probably insure it even with the 307 wheels, but you wouldn't get $17000 for it if it was written off.

    It's a fair price (ie: not bad, not good and not a bargain).

    That said, if it's in as good mechanical condition as they say, then it's a much better deal than a brand new 207 (depreciation kills!)

    Just to provide feedback re insurance. Mine is a 2005 with 65 on the clock and it is currently insured for $18,800 with AAMI.

    I would want to confirm why it has 307 wheels before purchase. Tyres may also make the rolling diam illegal.

    There appears to be non-factory paintwork on some aspect of the NSF corner. Can't quite place it, whether new guard or bumper retouched.

    Interesting. Is your insurance standard comprehensive or declared value? If just comprehensive, then I stand corrected on the question of insured value.

    re: the 307 wheels:
    The wheels are off a later model 307cc, they take a 205/50x17 tyre and have a width of 6.5. Looking at the picture of the GTi in question's tyre, it is indeed 205/50. The GTi wheels are 17 x 7 and take a 205/40 tyre. So there will be a difference in rolling diameter. In qld atleast, the allowable variance is up to 15mm.

    let's work it out (The profile number is the percentage of the tyre width):
    307 (50% of 205) x 2 + 432 (rim height in mm) = 637
    206GTi (40% of 205) x 2 + 432 = 596
    (actually we could leave the rim out of it since it's the same for both)

    So the difference is 4.1cm. Seems a lot. In the picture it doesn't appear that much. I hope I did my maths right, please feel free to correct me if not.

    However, theoretically you ought to be able to fit 205/40's onto the 307 rims. 6.5 to 7 cm difference in rim width should be within bounds.

    There may be an issue with the clearance that would have been resolved with the use of a spacer, but I think this would only apply if the wheel was wider not smaller than standard (the wider the rim the more the wheel will intrude into the wheel arch). Not sure on the regs for use of spacers.

    So if you buy the car, you might be looking at new tyres straight up.

    Thanks for your replies all. Will be looking at the car on SAT DEC 4 in Sydney if it is still for sale at that dealer.

    Cheers
