    Default New Zealand Events/Drives

    Hello all,

    Advertisement



    I now have my 406 coupe and have seen a couple of hundred other peugeot owners out and about the land of the long white cloud. Does anyone know of any drives or events that take place in the north island? Or even better do we have enough kiwis to start drive days over here? Hey gibgib can we make a kiwi frogs? hehehhe


    Cheers nick

    Hey Nick, are you going to remain briz205 or become auck406C, oh and update your avatar with a pic of your beauty. Is the Coupe man or auto, what colour, and what sort of dollars was it?

    Hi Simon,

    I will remain briz205 for a while. I still have the little beast in Brisbane. I do have a piccy of the 406 (see attached) but don't have photoshop so i cannot make it into an avatar just yet. She is an auto, dark green, has been superchiped and is pretty much a rocketship, gets lots of stares and questions, everything tries to race me at the lights. And the big thing about it was it only cost me $23,700 on the road. Its done 99,000kms and has a full peugeot dealer service history. I looked at many and none where around this price. I love it however i am looking for a 205 gti project car... Also If anyone needs a room while they are over this side of the tasman give me a bell.

    Cheers Nick

    One 406 avatar attached. Love the colour Nick. Pity it is auto, or is that what you wanted. I see it is missing a left front wheel centre.

    Thank you for the avatar very nice. I would have liked a manual, however they are very rare and it will be driven alot so the auto is easier. I took it out the back of auckland this afternoon and shat! This thing is quick it sticks and sticks and sticks loads of torque and hmmm I'm in love.......

    P.S Its off due to me wanting to know if it was a 4 or 5 stud patten.

    Ooh, nice pug. How are the roads out there? NZ strikes me as a natural habitat for the Peugeot.

    Boys boys boys!

    This place is one for the record books. Its the best roads in the world for pugs! Nice tight twisty! The 406 laps it all up. I reckon we should organise a aussie frogs assault on NZ. ship the pugs over and lets have some fun!!

    yea myself and g/f had a short 4 day tour of the north island last year - we were stuck with a Suzuki jimmny for a rental car, which is the sort of car Hitler would have given to the Jews that he really really hated.

    Simon, Charles, all other gti/rsc owners, you could go absolutely ballistic out there. It is just fantastic, hairpin after hairpin up the winding hilly roads surrounded by some of the most picturesque scenery this side of the equator.... but an absolute nightmare in a Suzuki jimmny.


    but yea, when I win 19millon in lotto this weekend, I will burden the cost for everyone's time off work and the shipping of the cars and accomodation and meals to New Zealand for the worlds biggest frogstomp.

    Maybe the NZ pug crowd can organise a Rendezvous New Zealand event for us to come and attend.

    You are in the wrong island. No traffic and better roads down here.

    Anyone else in Christchurch or surrounding areas out there keen for a get-together?
