Why not just get a hdi and not look gay?
Given the choice between Niall and the sheep. I would choose the sheep!

I bought one really cheap as a run around.
It had 1-2-4 mani, decat, straight through to cherry bomb, lowered and some gay wolfrace wheels.
Changed the wheels to black cyclones.

I absolutely loved it!
Probably one of the most fun cars I've ever had!

There's a video on YouTube of me ragging it about, although time of the video I have no 5th and reverse and it was difficult to find other gears due to gear linkage.

They are tiny little cars though. if your over 5' 8" tall it'll be small for you.

I'm 6'4" and it's terrible in the standard seating position. 306 seats make it much better.

Are they a straight swap or got to change the rails n that

The tunnel side bolts straight up, the sill side will sit nicely with the 306 rail on top of the 106 rail if you remove the 106 rail from the seats and bolt it to the car then weld the 2 together.

I'd go for gti tbh but insurance would be a killer dunno whether to look for a xud or quicksilver can't make my mind up and not to much hassle then dum seems like a handy little mod

When I had mine I was 5ft9" and 22stone.
Me and deggers drove around in it pretty comfortably tbh and he isn't small either! :-)

I would personally buy a gti at some point, just to make up for the fun again! :-)
My gti6 wasn't as fun :-(

Ive loved using my s2 1.6 xs for the last 6 months, no gti kit like the quiky but if anything i prefer it looking more like a 1.1.... it could do with a couple upgrades, but surprisingly fun straight out the box. It even did ~40mpg up and down the m5 to work

I used to have a phase 1 xsi. Was a right hoot. Bought for £150 off a copper. Stripped it down to just the front seats. No dash no nothing that I didn't need. Was a really fun car. Then I smashed the sunroof with a canoe so replaced with a bit of filing cabinet. Lol. I remember when I came to get rid i spent 3 days trying to blow it up and didn't succeed.
On a break from 306oc for personal reasons. If anyone needs or wants me most of you have my number and or facebook messenger
Thanks for the good times guys n gals. I might be back. Who knows.

Anything above size 6 shoe you'll end up pushing all the pedals at once

This is something that takes a while to get use to.
Also the pedals are further on one side.

Tried driving my NAD in size 11 steel toe caps once...  You can guess how it went...  Couldn't accelerate without braking due to the proximity of the wheel arch. lol

Must admit I didn't have any more of a height issue with it than the 306 though, both pretty poor in terms of squeezing legs under the wheel when close enough to comfortably reach the wheel.  But I do have excess leg for my 6ft height. Confused

I'm 11 or 11.5 and my one was fine for a year.
This post is an artistic work of fiction and falsehood. Only a fool would take anything posted above as fact.

I'm size 12 and I can't get on with the pedal box what so ever, I'll be braking up to a junction and the engine would be red lining

I had a saxo furio, essentially exactly the same.. Then bought a HDi which was faster even in standard form, cheaper to insure and much better on fuel. I wouldn't bother if you've already got a s2 HDi it'll feel slow as sin

Since the pics i have replaced the arch trim, (im also breaking another quicksilver so have endless amounts of bits) And i have another quicksilver door i can include with the sale. also the interior will be having a damn good scrub up.

For £600 i would include a good 4-2-1 tubular manifold Smile

EDIT: its just had a recon box and new valeo 3 piece clutch kit. engine was serviced at the same time. i will be sticking a cambelt kit on it before i MOT it as i have no service history with the car and its a nice easy cheap job to do. Smile
