An incredible 1998 Peugeot 106 GTi which has benefitted from cherished long term, mature ownership and covered just 55,925 miles since new with a full service history.
The vast majority of these cars have had a very hard life and been thrashed and modified over the years and as such, un-abused and un-molested examples are now getting very difficult to find. This example is completely standard and just as it should be. It is just lovely.
Still wearing all of its factory fitted panels and factory paint, this little GTi presents in a stunning condition and it certainly defies its age and mileage. The paintwork is completely free from any scratches and only a few small stone chips can be seen upon close scrutiny and are within keeping with a unrestored example. Bumper corners and plastics are excellent and all window rubbers and weather strips are still supple and clean. Head lights and front bumper incorporated fog lights are crystal clear and damage free. The red GTi badges on the doors are fully intact and still vivid in colour. Genuine Peugeot mud flaps are fitted and the GTi logo hints at the performance credentials of this tiny "Hot Hatch". The plastic surround and tinted glass on the factory fitted sunroof are in perfect condition and all glass is factory original. Underneath the wheels arches is spotlessly clean and original pdi markings are still clearly visible on suspension components. Please view the photos of the underside of this car. It is in exceptional condition and it will withstand any inspection or scrutiny. These cars are just not around in this condition anymore.
Internally, it is as close to brand new as you will ever find. The half leather/alcantara sports seats just excellent. The bolsters are perfectly shaped and retain their firmness. The leather is unmarked and the rear seats seem to have seen very little use. The carpet is spotless and has been protected by genuine rubber mats since new. The plastics on the door cards and dashboard are as new. The headlining is spotless. The original security coded radio is still fitted and is fully functional and the electric front windows and central door locking are in perfect working order. As soon as you open the door, it is very evident just how well this car has been looked after throughout its life.
The correct 14" Raptor alloy wheels are in a lovely condition. We have just had them professionally refurbished and they look superb. Good quality, matching tyres are virtually new.
The car drives perfectly. The motoring press have always said just how much fun these cars are and they are the last of the "true" Peugeot GTis.
Mechanically perfect and always maintained to a very high standard since new. The service intervals on these cars were every 20,000 miles or 2 years. It has been serviced 12 times and always had genuine Peugeot parts fitted. The first 4 services were carried out by the supplying Peugeot dealer and the 8 additional services have been carried out by the same garage. The last service was carried out just 6 miles ago. The fact that this car has never failed an mot test nor has it ever had any advisories is testament to the meticulous and cherished upkeep.
Remaining with its last, mature owner for over 17 years and covering very little mileage over this time, it has still been motd and serviced regularly. The original and exceptional condition just demonstrates the cherished and long term ownership. A hand written letter from the owner confirming the genuine love for this little GTi is just so nice to see.
Complete with original handbook pack including the radio security code, Current V5 registration document, 2 original keys and a current mot certificate until October 2019, this incredible car is now ready to be used sparingly, enjoyed and taken to shows...
