    prices of Pugs in the UK...

    My grandmother in the UK has just sold her 1988 Pug 405 petrol sedan (i've never seen it so don't know what model 405), and managed to only get 500pounds for it!?!?!

    If only it was easier to import cars, as Pugs are so cheap over there!

    "All of its cars from the 1.1 litre 205 through the ugly duckling 309 to the 2.2 litre 505 GTi had a rightness and a righteousness about them that turned every humdrum drive into a journey. Someone, I once wrote, in the bowels of Peugeot understands handling and how a chassis should feel." - Jeremy Clarkson

    They're also very rusty over there, due to the salt they put on the roads in winter.

    Yeah ask Gerry,

    He imported a 505 Series 2 V6....which is sweet and I quite like....we have not yet taken it on the road though !

    But the car cost him around $800Aus and then cost around $8,000Aus to imports!!!!

    Ben,
    next time you have a look at the V6 505 just see if the A/C fan and all the other crap on the firewall on a normal 505 is the same or different in that car
    i'd be very interested to know
    i saw one when i was in europe and from memory they had all that different on the V6 ones
    i ask this as i have heard a few people now wanting to put V6 engines into 505's but they are finding that they won't fit because of this problem
    my solution for this would be to move the engine forward the 1/2" or so that is needed to fit them in but i have heard 2 different people that are thinking of doing this and they are going to cut the rear of the head on the engine to fit them in.
    thank you

    Personally, I think I'd cut into those cowlings on the firewall with a jigsaw, and replace the cut out pieces with new ones made from fabricated sheet steel or fibreglass or something.

    I've been told that the genuine 505 V6 has the engine mounted further forward.

    The reason the 405 is so cheap over here is because no-one wants them!

    They are an old car & car quality has improved immeasureably since they were built.

    It's true we use salt & grit on the roads in the winter, but if you regularly clean it & give it a good jet washing under the arches then they don't suffer too much!

    The only place's that 405's turn up for sale now are at small second hand dealer's & at the scrap yard.

    As for Peugeot's being cheaper over here, a current model 306 GTI-6 R-reg (1997/8) would go for around £8995 at a Peugeot dealers. Which is roughly AUS$17,990.
