The Peugeot 106 1.1 Zest 2 was my first car, it wasnt my first choice, but i have never looked back! i have owned it a year now and unfortunatly it must go to afford my VTR but has been great to own. I always thought a 1.1i wouldnt be quick, but actually its not bad, i dont care what the parkers specs say they lie its not 14.7 seconds to 60, with 3 people in the car i managed it in 11.3. the standard suspention is poor it rolls around the road like it was drunk, but i had spaX springs all round and it out handles any of my mates cars. These are really easy to make unique as parts are so cheap, also because its french it has s lot of character, little bits and bobs will go wrong, like my speedo doesnt work all the time and the fuel guage is vaigue. I would recomend it to anyone, so much that 2 of my mates have just bought them, mine sits just cm's from the floor though so can be unpractical.
Get one, you will be impressed. Good on fuel, Cheap to repair, easy to modify and work on. Bad points are rattles a bit, Little bits and bobs go wrong, (its french) but nothing major!!
