Sup ya'll. I have a few swap offers for my 306 Rallye. all are still a bit silly Very Happy

S1 106 Rallye with a 1.6 8v on bike carbs.cammed
205 Gti6. Coilovers, polybushed. Superclean
172 cup, yozza, coilovers

I'm swaying towards the 106 simply because I know them inside out and the bike carbs on the 1.6 would sound mean!

Opinions please.

Not sure, none are my cup of tea, but I have seen a 205 with a gti6 engine and it was very quick!

Carbs will sound awesome, 205 will shift, but as a daily I'd pick the 172 without blinking an eyelid!

Tbh... is there much point in swapping for any of those lot? They're all very... 'samey'. Small nimble french hatches with decent engines. And I'm sure you've already got a 106 for that Razz

I sold the 106:( miss it so much and the 306 is too mint to start abusing. i have a 306 diesel to fall back on as a second car if the new car gives me issues..which it will,being French and rattly.
I just fancy something a little different that I can play with on my days off. its only a 13 Mile roundtrip to work,mostly urban driving,lots of stop and start. I can just watch the petrol gauge go down in the 306.. its depressing!

205 GTi6 fo'shizzle. Having been out in one of the Pug1Off 205's with a 6 engine on ITBs... want muchly. And the 205 is a lovely looking car IMHO.

So get the 205. Buy some ITBs. Get yourself a permanent big cheesy grin.

That is beautiful. Point proven. Get a 205 with a 6 engine. Get some ITBs.

You could see nearly 300bhp N/A. 9k RPM. Sex wee in your pants.

Offt what a beauty. I want that engine just to look at. I'll meet both owners of the 106 and 205 and take both for a spin and see what makes more of an impression!

Well if your depressed with watching the fuel gauge go down in the 306, the 205 has the same engine & as stu says bike carbs will be worse so 172 ftw imo.

Cup, purely for the yozza! Although it's a cup I'm sure it's nicer to be in than the other two.

Your 306 is damn porn, such a shame your selling it!

Out of those cars that youve got to chose from i agree with Chris, theyre all very close to the 306, is there really much point selling that beaut?

It's costing me loads in fuel.partly down to a busted lamda sensor. Also waaay too low for my liking and the gmax springs and dampers are gash. I'd just end up spending more and more on it. And rather something i can take on track and give a good thrashing. i feel bad Doing that to the Rallye.
the 306 is stunning but i prefer function over form. Never been a fan of show and no go:)

Rallye's were built for track style driving, were they not? Razz

If you're gonna swap, I'd say 172. I'd try fixing the 306 first mind. It isn't that low, dampers etc can be changed, lambda's make a massive difference to not only fuel but the way the car runs, you'll find it bogs down more with it overfuelling.

The 306 has imense potential and if you want more power just force some induction through it Smile

You wont find another 306 like that in a hurry and there are thousands of 172 out there!

The 172 cup is a no no. It's sat on 74k miles. Cambelt just done.. with no proof. According to the seller ( a Renault technician) it won't need doing again until 125k miles. Which is strange as Renault recommend it gets done every 37k miles.

My Rallye is now fixed. Runs nicely but I am very tempted to go for the 205, it sure does shift!

Out of those i'd be more tempted by the 205 but i think i'd stay with the 306 if its all fixed up
