Looks okay for the money, and it seems 406s are getting thin on the ground nowadays... :(

2.2hdi, Grandad Green, lowish miles, probably fap issues but nothing a bit of fettling won't solve :supafrisk:

That shouldn't be to difficult to fix, GLX's are rare and a 2.2 Hdi even rarer. I would have had a go at that, if I needed another one.

Bejesus wasn't that MOT tester having a bad day? for goodness sake :roll:

"number plate deteriorated but not likely to be misread" :lol:

"anti roll bar corroded but not seriously weakened"

Is he having a laugh? :frown:

And the owner has been sloshing in eoloys willy-nilly because the additive tank strap broke :lol: that's a point does the 2.2 have a pump to squirt the stuff into the tank like our DV6?

My 2.2 had a separate tank and internal pump for DPF but had it removed as pump was siezed and cant be replaced as it is sealed inside the tank. New from agent NLA... Had the dpf written out of the ecu as PP2000 was still recording faults and engine check light was on and would go into limp mode, dpf filter had already been gutted by some previous owner.

The dpf issues are easily and cheaply sorted and the mileage is reasonable. For me it's too far away, timings all wrong - we're camped near Newquay at the moment and a GLX with a dented door would be a bit of a let down after the execs.
Still like the look of a tidy 406 though.
