anyone have any experiance with one of these? didnt realise they were such a low insurance group (5) or 4 for the xn but now im thinking about getting one as first car. as some of you know im not really rich, so insurance prices mean a lot to me. plus points being i like the look of these, they dont look to expensive, and insurance. only worry i have is that i will be wanting to tune it when i am a bit older, as i dont want to be swapping cars every few months or so. are these tuneable at all? thanks in advance for all the advice guys :lol:

Try and get a decent one. Moe's needed a new engine when he bought his. handles alright for a deisel though supposedly. It won't be as good as a hdi though, but cheaper to tune.

i've seen a few d-turbo's (and hdi's especially) that eat gti-6's on straights.

it's just not as funny as a revvy petrol no matter what anyone says imo. :(

just obviously be careful when buying and give it a good look over!

when i went to get mine, after the fiesta got nicked, my mechanic mate checked it all over, and the temp gauge wasn't working and assumed it was fine, changed the temp sender, and 3 weeks later the head gasket went!

while it was on the road, easy 50mpg and a nice car to drive 8-)

problem is that for a petrol car with the same sort of power/output i will be paying more on fuel, and getting raped on insurance. and fun doesnt matter, because it will be my first car so anything will be fun i think.

Well you're going for what you want at the end of the day, and the 306 has a brilliant chassis. I guess i'm just saying that i'd rather have a 1.1 or 1.4 106 instead, it may be slightly slower, but it will be more fun and chuckable along with the same kind of mpg for a cheaper fuel.

No matter what, i'm sure you will get the right car for yourself, and you could choose a million cars worse than the 306 td that's for sure.

The 306 TD's seem to be good 8-)

Can tune boost and fuel pump up, my mates went pretty well and still did good mpg :D

I used to have a straight D 306 way before I got a fiesta, only had it a few weeks due to engine problems (dodgy mechanic), but before it went tits up it was a good car to drive, wouldnt break any records but was cheap to run, and was fairly quicker than a 1.1 thing :)
