It looks like I am selling the Zed people. I will have to trade in as on finance so I got a stupid price for the car but it will only keep going down in value.

The new car I am getting is half in insurance and it's a bigger engine size. My ZR is starting to have some problems now so I think its time for a change................................after only 6 months. :zip:

keep in touch.

The pug 206 is a nice car the aircon gets very cold, and they don't look too bad in the quick silver design.

ZR Replacement

So Pugs don't depreciate? If that's a problem the only cars worth looking at are MINI and the vRS Skoda Fabia, otherwise it's pretty much standard on all cars. Don't want to put you off, but we have a fleet of Peugeots at work, small vans, 406s and a 206 + 206 cc, all have given problems in varying degrees, one french vehicle (!) had a part fitted incorrectly on the brakes which meant they came on hard on their own - it was delivered like that, that was fixed and it went back another 2 times in the first month with other problems. Going to a French brand is not the best idea if you want reliabilty and build quality I don't think is any better than MG's (except on the cc but that's only because of the leather etc) at least not on the smaller or cheaper cars. Also I would guess a replacement for the 206 can't be years away as it's been about since '99?

Sorry to hear about your new car, good luck with you new one, you'd be really unlucky to get Friday afternoon car
