I bought the car in 2016 and it's lived in storage since then with the occasional journey to turn it over. When I bought it the engine had a tap that would suggest a timing belt failure at some point in it's life. Earlier this year I replaced the cylinder head with genuine fully reconditioned & de-coked one. The refurbishment was carried out by Brett Sims Motorsport, the work being done to a very high standard. The cambelt and water pump etc were changed when this was done. The engine is now very quiet and smooth with the power delivery.
The car is as genuine and original as possible. The cat is non-peugeot but a good quality one, the centre section is genuine Peugeot and the rear silencer is a Klarius one as the OEM part is no longer available. The Klarius one is however essentially identical visually with the chrome tip to the tailpipe.
The calipers have been fully refurbed, rebuilt and galvanized in silver as they would have been originally. There are new genuine flexi hoses up front and disc protectors at the rear.
There are the odd blemishes to the paintwork and minor scuffs on the front bumper as you would expect from a 20 year old car but the overall condition is one the best I've ever seen for a GTi-6.
