  1. Interesting, our 108 has a fabric parcel/shelf cover, but it cleverly lifts with the tailgate and then covers boot space when closed, I thought Aygo would be similar, but looks like it isn't. Know what you mean about 'short' sill protectors, the 'official' Peugeot 108 ones were stupidly short especially for our 3 door, so I luckily found some new old stock for the previous model and fitted those.
  2. Love the upgrades, lots of options out there to make your car bit more special.
  3. Hello and welcome, congrats on completing the triplet set.
  4. Hope all goes well and you are pleased with your new Aygo X. Looking forward to your review/comments on it to see if it is 'The Best City SUV in the World!'
  5. Our 107 run on mainly branded fuel cos we in bit of a not spot for supermarket fuel, but my sister's 1.0 108 has run on Asda fuel for 5 years as she luckily has a big Asda just round the corner with no issues. I have put the occassional tank of Asda fuel in our 107 when been over my sister's and it run quite happily.
  6. I'm no expert, just mentioning experiences with C1/107 owners over the years. You can buy new ID70 chips fairly cheap. Unfortunately it quite common for used C1s/107s/Aygos to only have 1 key, although they did come with 2 keys, we bought ours new so have 2 keys (1 remote locking key and 1 plain key). Lost count number these cars with only 1 key. Suppose as you have the fancy scanner/programmer you could buy a cheap new ID70 chip and new key case/blade again fairly cheap and if programming works and get blade cut? you at least have a key to start and run the car? If you want the remote locking as well take it from there.
  7. As I understand it you may need a new immobiliser chip (ID70?) cos they can only be programmed once, the remote locking can be 'learned' from the car by a special sequence or maybe fancy scanners/programmers can do that as well. That said word of warning buying a 'used' key of eBay etc, over the MK1 life span 05-14 there seems to have been varying chip sets for remote locking, so just getting that to work has proved challenging and costly for some owners, I'm speaking from MK1 C1/107 owners experiences, hopefully Aygo key sets were a bit more stable/uniform?
  8. Agree with others, should do it easy, heard of peeps going to Easteren Europe in the first gen cars, the good news is you have a Mk2 car so with its better seats and refinement is a bonus. For a very long trip, I'd be leaving our 107 at home and stealing my sister's 108 keys! Have a nice trip anyways.
  9. Remember there was a company that converted a load of first gen Citroen C1s to EV few years ago, no idea of cost or range, but they were flogging off the brand new engines they removed. To be honest not sure if it was a good idea cos back then the whole idea of these little cars were they were cheap to buy and run, easy to maintain and good on fuel.
  10. Just so you know, if you get aftermarket camera built into number plate light, you may have to file out the bulb holder notches in new number plate/camera light to make the bulb holder fit. Not a big issue and easy to do, but odd problem considering the new number plate camera/light fitted in bumper perfectly and other than that it was plug n play.
  11. We have a Peugeot 108 and I fitted an aftermarket camera few years ago, looking behind the bumper is a metal structure/panel and the rear end wiring is behind that. When doing ours I used aftermarket camera and leads, but while wiring ours in I saw what looked like a stock camera cable/plug attached to rear end/number plate wiring. Crawl under the rear end and look up behind the metal panel and you should see it. I went aftermarket route for camera and lead, cos pukka 2nd hand cameras were then £60-£70 and I didn't want drill holes in rear bumper, plus I got adapter lead, camera+wiring etc for about £35 so another plus. I found a rear view camera as part of a replacement number plate light so fitted that thus no drilling holes in rear bumper required.
  12. Yep, they just pull off, held on by rubberised clips. The air vent surrounds are held on by 2 screws to the dashboard trims. I swapped our rather boring Peugeot 108 air vent surrounds and some trims for some from an Aygo few years ago, as much wider colour choice. The touchscreen surround and gear gaitor surround also have rubberised clips, so easy to replace these as well.
  13. This link may also help :-
  14. Sorry to hear your sad tale, dealers do try it on, ok ours was a used car, but we had paint issues and parts missing/broken on a car, they just hope you don't spot these things. I did spot them and they sorted them without any hassle, but just takes the shine off what should be a happy experience. This was pre-pandemic, so bet with current new car production issues these issue tolerances are being stretched even further. Fair play for giving them the chance to repair it.
  15. Hello and welcome, you been busy adding lightness, good to see some more bugs racing, best of luck to your son.
