    hi guys

    im getting a pug 106 mk2 1.1 and i want to know how to modify my car

    it is a r reg 1.1 mk2 pug 106.

    i want to make it handle better, stop better - just make it a better car but dont want to put a bodykit on anything.

    any recommendations?

    as your on a low budget then springs and shocks will probably be your cheapest option for suspension
    dont bother with the rest
    and when your pads are worn put better ones on

    I thinking of getting Bilstein STREETLINE Suspension Kits which lowers the car 30mm for £210.

    Anyone put one in there pug 106 1.1?

    As long as it doesn't make the springing too stiff it should be fine. I doubt it'll make much difference to the handling though.

    I see that you can get powerflex bushes - will these increase the handling/ride? Are they worth getting?

    they can but at the expense of ride comfort
    £210 is pretty cheap for bilstein

    Street line kits aren't worth getting,

    just get some eibach pro kit springs, and lower the rear torsion bars

    go for a GTi-6 brake upgrade (306 gti) or a 266mm upgrade, pick up a decent second hand one quite cheap

    gti6 brakes are total over kill, and you'll need 15" wheels, 306 hdi or xsi brakes (266) aren't a bad way to go and the 306 1.9 dturbo brakes are also a decent upgrade on a car like that.

    The shocks on the 206 are quite good with some progressive springs like Apex or Eibach.

    +1 to better pads. The discs are big enough.
