Been in or around 306s since 2006. Had a China Phase 2 DTurbo-S 2006-2008, it had a derv doctor stage 1 tune and wore diy painted gti skirts and diy painted black harriers. Was a beast and it got me to college and back, and then work and back for the first few years of my adult life. Had a Fabia vRS for a time after that, then a Citroen C2 VTS, then was back to a Phase 3 Black GTi-6 which I loved absolutely. It had a Bilstein B8s all round, Group N Engine mounts, 30mm Eibach Springs, a K'N and a full Magnex exhaust. I ran that for two years until swapping it in for a more modern, and horrid, Astra H 1.9 CDTi150.

So when I decided I wanted another 306 it was a difficult decision to decide which model I wanted. I'd had two GTIs (Had a Diablo as well) and an XUD so decided it had to be a Rallye. I'd gone through stranges about 5 or 6 years ago wanting a White One, mainly because of Ben's magazine feature from the .net years (Click Here) and then a red one. But as I've always strove for the highest spec / the rarest model I decided it had to be the Black Rallye. Only a 100 were ever made, and according to howmanyleft.com there's left than 50 left (That's included sorn'd vehicles) so exclusivity is almost guaranteed. (That is of course besides Dum Dum, MattRallye & INXS to name a few on here Blush: )

To cut a long story short I have no intention of using my Black Rallye as a daily. There's too few of them left and I'm wanting to keep this as a very long term project (5-10 years) so wanna keep the miles off as much as possible.

Bought T436 CNH from Chris (BigBadBowen from here) after a long ol' trip "down south" where I'd arranged to view a couple in the same day. The second was a lot further south, a lot cheaper and not in as good a condition. So I plumped up some notes for Mr. Bowen's Rallye. I think I didn't get a bad deal considering the work that had gone into the car, it's had a 50k Xsara VTS engine, new Aux and cam belts. As well as new brakes, good tyres a few other bits and bobs including uprated engine mounts.

It was a horrid trip home. Bad traffic, torrential rain and following my Dad doing 50mph the entire way. But despite this the Rallye still made it fun!! The exhaust note is infectious and the handling so sharp. Every roundabout can be viewed as a challenge!

I'm an avid reader of other's project threads. In particular 306gti6.com has some of the very best GTi/Rallye themed threads, and I've in particular been inspired for the overall look by 7075sam's Black Rallye before he broke it for parts! And Braymond's "Rallye-R". These two cars represent some of the best Rallye's the scene has produced in the last few years and are definitely inspirations.

My take on the Rallye may not be one for the purists and my black/red theme was inspired by Daysgti6's old '6 from some years ago Click Here

But one thing I definitely want to get right is the underside and the general clean up of some 13,14 years of grim build up. For this hours of tedious work I blame Mik's Rallye and Coskev's who showed us all how these cars should look underneath.

So want to keep the thread up to date, and I'll edit the "contents" at the top as often as I can so people can quickly navigate to points of interest.

Plans are:
Overall I want the car to be a light track use / fast road weapon that I can enjoy. There's some cracking roads near where my parents live and it's one of the few places left in the country you can really enjoy a good car.
I've got winter 14/15 to prepare the car to a standard where I can show it for Summer 2015. Gonna be going to FCS, Pugfest, Trax etc this next year so hoping to go with one 306 club or another not in the car park!!!

2). Red Decals DONE
3). Replace Windscreen DONE

26). OEM Peugeot Rubber Mats

Then Winter 15/16...
1). Carry on underneath clean

3). Finally make decision whether to cage/harness bar/keep standard interior
4). New Full Exhaust (Jetex or similar)

I'll be following this with interest and thanks for citing my thread.

That rust looks like it started with jacking damage, seems to be almost standard on these cars now as for some reason a lot of people in garages can't seem to resist jacking these cars in that spot.

True that! My diablo gti is fine but my old black one had the corrosion here too!

Small update. Going to Wales tomorrow with yippiekiyay (from 306gti6.com) tomorrow on a jaunt (He's got a white rallye, I've a black and a friend of his a red so should make for some good photo ops). The car had been cleaned prior to be buying it but wasn't up to my standards. So had a 4+ hour session on the old girl, don't think she'd been cleaned this rigorously in years! Forgot to take some before pics but I'm sure you can imagine it.

Started off with a standard triple wax, (twice), followed by a full T-Cut which removed 80% of the marks and surface scratches that littered the bodywork. Had some black T-Cut left over from my old Black GTi (Which I sold 3 years ago!). Then cleaned it down again with triple wax. Then came the polish. Then went around with some touch up paint (again left over from my black GTi), then full shampoo'd the interior. To be honest I can't believe it's come out as well as it did.

Few pics:








Can just see the Diablo peaking out of the garage in a couple of the pics.

The eagle eyed among you will have noticed the car is "naked" of it's Rallye decals. I've had my fresh set delivered today, was going to apply them this evening but ran out of daylight, but I'd taken the old moldy ones off before washing it. But they're going on tomorrow morning.

Also did a little dewipering earlier. Three reasons 1). Saving weight! 2). I made £10 selling the part on eBay and 3). I absolutely HATE rear wipers.



After the decals next up is having the front and rear lights off to get a full clean on the inside of them. Then probably a clean up of the engine bay and a some fixing on some loose trim (Carpet in the boot and under the passenger footwell)

I'll tell you how these car days out always go. Firstly SWMBO isn't happy that 1). I'm out all day and 2). I'm "wasting" £60-70 worth of fuel, but hey ho. Dragged myself out of bed at 5am to get a good early start as our destination is Wales and I'm the furthest North and the furthest East. Met up with ndy (yippiekiyay) and entourage at some services near Redditch.

We both shared an understanding of the enormity of the journey ahead so wasted little time with pleasantries, tanked up and got underway immediately. Meeting Braymond's Rallye in person was a humbling event as the thing is beautiful, even better looking in person than any project thread, even an exceptionally photographed and well written as his can do justice.

It was also... much quicker than mine! After a quick stop in a town with a typically Welsh name where I tried and almost failed to fit into the very snug bucket seats in the White Rallye we met up with Kerry, owner of the Red Rallye. Whilst I'd never been hugely struck on Cherry, Kerry's is the best example of the colour I've seen (Well equal to Alee83's from .net) especially for paintwork brightness. The side skirts weren't even pink! LOL

We also met up with a few other South West/Welsh gents and lasses with a variety of vehicles from a Mk2 Escort RS, a Focus ST, and a Clio v6.

We then headed up to the Beacons. Amazing roads, barely any traffic. It was spectacular! We stopped for a photoshoot, enjoyed some RWD donuts from the Escort and then it was 5pm! With work looming the day after it was time to pack up and head home, but a great day out...

I did toy with standard decals but wanted something different! Probably have changed my mind by the time it breaks cover again in spring.

Still haven't got the steels on, think they won't break cover until next year now as the car's hibernation starts in a couple of weeks.

Anyway finally sourced a air conless black phase 2 dash centre fascia, a big thanks to gpm (off this forum) for coming across it by accident and helping me out!!

BEFORE:


AFTER:


Besides that now, despite having reconnected it, the aerial to the radio doesn't work (But it was always in the plans to de-aerial the car anyway), and the connector's on the 12v were different so had to bodge splice them together it was quite easy.

Very pleased with it, never got why the entire interior was black then to have this stupid silver fascia. I get it on PH3s where there's different silvery bits all over the cabin but not a Rallye.

There is someone on here looking for an original Rallye facia, so I'm sure it will be easy to sell.

I'd have liked the original! Never mind haha

Car looks very smart mate and I envy your paintwork!

Have to meet up at some point for some pics as I reckon you're the closest Rallye owner to me and I can't imagine you see two black ones together very often except at shows!

So had it on the the rollers today and it's only made 138bhp. So a little disappointed as my 120k old gti made 169 with a filter and exhaust.

Yeah well its always felt good, strong and fast. So No clue why it's down. Gonna have lambda checked and can timing looked at. If they're not the cause I'll have it redyno'd and see if s 2nd rolling road agrees. It's definitely not an xsi engine right mate haha
