Four weeks of daily use for the Pug has just come to an end, when my Audi has been in having some stuff done.

 

Here's a little pic of them both!

 

MOT next month and a gearbox oil change for the Pug.

She's just ticked over 186,500 miles.

MOT passed with no advisories today and she also had an oil change, gearbox oil change, and new handbrake cables.

Dent to roof line after my ladder accident all repaired by Justin Mr Dent South Wales - great job done.

 

Pain in the arse having to take the headlining out beforehand but there you go.

 

Car being used regularly, what is strange is not having to do any work on it!

 

Hankering for another project to am tempted to foray into MK1 Golf GTI territory to compliment the 205...! Just a pipe dream though as can't really justify it!

So the 205 has just finished 6 weeks of daily duties and aside from a leaky caliper hasnt missed a beat. Just ticked over 188k miles and cleaned and back in the garage :)

I saw this in the shops and was going to comment but couldn't find the thread. Great little article at the back. Car is still looking good!

Four years ago yesterday I bought H853 DBD!

 

Time flies, she’s back on daily duties for the moment. 189k miles...roll on 200k

 

Full service to do next just waiting for parts from Miles to arrive!

Not much to report really, gave her a full service a couple of weeks ago (oil, filter, plus, HT leads, dizzy cap, rotor arm, plugs) and all is well. Since initial expenditure in the first couple of years there's been very little maintenance or repair needed, other than normal servicing. Great car, and still enjoy it just as much to this day!

Hello Alex,

 

You did an amazing job getting hold of all the spares you needed. I have just bought a 1992 1.9 in Sorrento Green and after 26 years it's looking quite neglected with missing/broken trim. Can you tell me your best sources for stuff? I would like to embark on a mission back to OEM!

 

Kind regards,

Rob

Hi mate, most were from farmer on here, dave 205 nuts, and from miles pug racing plus alot of internet searching on old part numbers for dealers abroad. Good luck, some parts are a pain to find - luckily the peugeot museum now has reproduction parts which werent around  when i did mine.

5 1/2 years on since buying and a fresh MOT this month - no advisories. Not suprised as I only did 250 miles this year. Must drive her more...!

Stumbled across an old 1999 Topgear episode that has my 205 in the opening scene and the end!
