Peugeot 106 XSI

History

I bought the car back in 1996. I had seen a few 106 XSi's on the road but they were few and far apart. As this is a rare version of the 106 I decided to investigate further. I found one close to where I live and decided to have a look. As we pulled up it stood out from the crowd, although i dont usually like red cars this one just gleemed and looked eye catching and smart. I took it for a test drive, the pug handled very well and stuck to the corners like glue. After i had parted with my cash (ok my dads cash) which was paid back in full, I decided it needed the Caz touch. Through time with the help from Bhav & Dave I have added bits and bobs as can be read below. Considering it is only a 1.4 with Bosch Motronic multi-point fuel injection engine it produces 105bhp, it has a very highly strung cam and revs up to 7200rpm which hits the rev limit, the suspension works well and is firm without being harsh. It has a well balanced chassis which weighs less than 850 kg, which can enable it to handle corners very nicely. Due to its size it is very nippy and would even give Dave's a run for his money round small little roundabouts.
