Seat Belt with Alarm

Mileage: 112,749KM

Beautiful Saturday morning with nothing else to do, thus I proceed with another project. Seat belt warning or in Peugeot parts documentation, it is called “Front Seat Belt with Alarm”. The idea to activate this feature was struck on my mind when I suddenly came across an online sale of 206 RC / GTI180 front seat belt. It does have an extra wiring which will connect to somewhere. The purchase, I would say, quite rush coz I did not check my ride for the necessary wiring underneath the seat before I pressed the checkout button. Alas, I managed to fix it and it works.

Trip Meter

Mileage: 111,611KM

Finally, I managed to display trip reading on the MFD. I chose to modify my existing COMM2000 instead of replacing it with another unit. However, I need to find another unit of COMM2000 because I need the trip button from it. Fortunately, my friend willing to part away his unused and busted COMM2000 for me to continue this experiment.

Single Line 2 Multi Line

Mileage: 111,041KM

In pursuing to upgrade the trim level of my lion, this is the one of three items which I can categorized as the most expensive (even for a used unit). The level of upgrade will start from MFD -> Comm2000 -> Rain Sensor / Windscreen. These upgrades will take a long time to complete as I need to study to make sure these “retro-fitting” works and does not explode my car. A lot of mix and match needed to reach the objective.

Two Tones; Twin Horn

Mileage: 98,611KM
Do It Yourself: Yes
Difficulty: Moderate

Another part from 206 GTI180 parts bin. I dislike the standard horn fitting, it sounded… well, not to my liking. It’s a single tone anyway and the throw is not directive enough to warn intended person to notice my location. Being a “Low Trim” option, there must be something from the premium specification that can replace it, hence the 206 GTI180 twin horn.

Map Reading Light

Mileage: 96,743KM
Do It Yourself: Yes
Difficulty: Easy

The cabin interior light for Bestari…. I would say is out of proportion in term of the surface area vs the light itself. Something is missing here, I wish I could fill it with…. By looking at some other 206 models, there are few variations and one model did attract my attention. The one that is the standard fixture of 206 GTI180. It has map reading light!
