My mystery GTi6
#1
Hi all

I am wondering if anyone might have the skills to help me at all with my mystery 306 GTi6. 

- So the V5C doesn't even have a model, it simply says it's a Peugeot. 
- The V5C and HPI also shows as being imported and a manufacturer date of 2000, but the helpful guys on the GTi6 forum say its a mid 1999 as it looks like a phase 3 apart from the unpainted side strips and orange dials (so likely build just before the formal release of the Phase 3). So the DVLA have the wrong date potentially on the V5C, but the T registration they assigned it in 2001 when imported, sounds right. Not sure why they'd say it was a 2000MY then assign it a 1999 plate!
- Finally, I spoke to Peugeot head office and none of their systems return results for the cars VIN (VF37CRFSW32707086).

I was wondering if anyone here can either decode the build date from the below suspension mount sticker, or find anything from the VIN? Thanks for reading and any help greatly appreciated.

Build code 8163 is 16th March 1999. I have no idea why Peugeot don't recognise the VIN. May be worth trying somewhere else to see if Peugeot just keyed it in incorrectly? The first half of it certainly looks fine (VF37CRFS) so if there's any issue with the number it's with the W3270.... bit.

Legends, thank you.

The VIN is correct on the V5C and matches both rear/front screen etchings and the tag under the bonnet. I tried it on the Peugeot website and it rejected it. Speaking to Peugeot today, who definitely keyed it correct, having also escalated to their manager, said it's perhaps because the systems typically only go back 15 years they thought. So they have no idea how to find out any details about the car. So as things stand there is nothing that states my car is a GTi other than the first bit of the VIN I believe is correct for a GTi!

In short I wanted something official to state it is a GTi and ideally find out where it was first sold (as it's imported from somewhere, but I don't know where). If anyone can help, I'll have to owe then a drink or something small for their car Wink

It's really odd that Peugeot are saying their records only go back 15 years. The parts department of a Peugeot dealership should be able to pull up the details of your car today from Servicebox using your VIN. My local one (closed last year) were able to pull up my vehicle details when it was over 20 years old. There is a tab that will show all of the vehicle details & trim it came with from the factory.

As for the VIN, you are right in saying that it confirms your chassis left the factory with an RFS (XU10J4RS, GTI-6) engine in it. i.e., it is a GIT-6. Whether it still has the same engine it left the factory with is another matter & you would need Peugeot to confirm the original engine number for you. (I've got a downloaded version of Servicebox but it doesn't allow me to search by VIN.

This is amazing, thank you so much; have messaged you about the drink/part I owe you as a thanks. Just need to try and info out where it was first sold as it was imported apparently. Assume somewhere like Peugeot Dublin. If anyone can find out where it was first sold or any of its owners, I'll owe you a drink or small part Wink

Really strange about the warranty starting in 1990. Also, you say its a Phase 2 but they have put more Phase 3 stuff on it from what I can see, even the spec sheet references the 2000 bumpers for example. Huge thanks again.

Nice work Paul. Can I ask what version of Servicebox you're using? Are you paying for access to it? Cheers, James

the speedo is in MPH so I don't think it would have been anywhere but the UK, everywhere else RHD use KMH I'm sure, so Ireland, Japan, Australia.

I would imagine much like Carl Chambers's rallye it just sat in a storage field somewhere for a while before being registered.

The warranty starting 1990 is something I've seen before with our cars, TBH i just thought it was a glitch that all warranties showed that date, anyone ever seen a correct/feasible warranty start date on Servicebox? (perhaps that bit only works on vehicles under 15 years?)

Definitely looks a clean example, nice find and love the EXY paint one of my faves. So on the V5c it says previously registered abroad or suchlike? Strange they have the Mfr. date as 2000, perhaps the T-plate was/is a private one rather than age related?

I wonder if Isle of Man/Jersey/Guernsey would count as abroad to the DVLA since they have their own plates & presumably IoM at least use miles per hour...

my 205 showed the same on servicebox for the warranty, even though its a 1989 car
