    Hi,

    If this is against forum rules, I apologise and please delet this, but i'm not selling anything!!

    I have a 306 XR Phase 1 1.6.

    Bad bits:

    Very hard to get key in the door, ignition is fine.
    Gearbox is on it's way out, there is a loud whine from the diff inside the car
    Exterior condition is not the best, hole in bumper and dent in wing

    Good bits:

    Engine 1.6 TU engine, starts instantly, very very responsive, RR at 98bhp I gave the graph somewhere (butterfly wedge restriction removed).
    Comfortable, rides nice, dampers good etc

    It doesn't have alloys and that doesn't show the dents, will get a "new" picture later!

    If nobody is interested, I will put on ebay but can't really be bothered, just want to get rid as it has no TAX / MOT and is on council land. Naighbours will get arsey. :rolleyes:

    He's giving it away guys so it's probably best you email him directly if you want to take it off his hands.

    Yes I should have made it clear the car is free, would make a good first car for someone who can change a gearbox and do some TLC...

    Ideal for a student due to low insurance etc, and has been reliable apart from the 'box.

    Oh and i forgot to mention the head was taken apart by 'street racers' (local garage) and gordon replaced the head gasket, cleaned the head, adjusted the tappets and I swear I got the cambet / tensioners done, will just go check. Engine is great for a little 1.6.

    First dibs to Andr3w now tho... :)

    It's filthy, and I have noticed some rust on the roof:

    car 1
    car 2
    car 3
    car 4
    car 5
    car 6
    dash
    seats

    Slight change of plan: I'm just going to give it away on a first come first serve basis, not going to give dibs to anyone. Would be best to go to someone genuinely in need tho I guess! :)

    Having checked over the thread - please don't offer money, as selling is not allowed. If Pants is genuinely giving it away for free then please take it to email. :)

    Batf1nk you can have it if Ross does not email back. Addres emailed to you too!
