    Have never worked on cars a day in my life but have just recently purchased my first car and have a real interest in learning as i want to modify the car and do all the work myself, the car is a peugeot 106 1.1 1999, and was just wondering if anybody could give me any pointers on where i should start with modifications and such, car has had nothing done to it so far but my hopes are to get it supped up as a little project car, any help would be greatly appreciated thanks !

    Hi and welcome young man |B

    My advise would be to do things in the right/best order and make sure that your car is in tip top condition brakes,suspension and tyre wise and to get some additional instruction from qualified people on a track BEFORE building a more powerful motor.

    I would also advise that you consult your liability insurer BEFORE undertaking any non factory mods as they will almost certainly add to the cost of insurance cover IF they will still insure you and your car because it would be a financial disaster should you mod the car and not advise the insurer as they will not cover you in the event of crashing into anything due to non disclosure of the mods ..V(

    Make sure that you have IN WRITING records of any correspondence to and from your insurer as in the event of crash verbal assurances are soon forgotten.

    Sorry if the above was not what you wanted to hear BUT you needed to hear it so you are fully aware of the way it is before doing anything.:)
