    Some more queries entered my mind, again they're probably not possible, but
    worth asking anyway. Won't ever find out if I don't ask!
    Firstly, how easy is it to convert the manual windows to electric ones, and
    how easy is it to get the parts/motors to do this?
    Secondly, is it possible to install central locking onto a non-central
    locking car? Basically what I want to do with this is have all 4 doors & the
    boot lock, and activate an alarm (which I'm going to ask about next) with
    the plip of a button.
    Thirdly, what's the best alarm system to put into the 306, and how easy is
    it to install?
    Has anyone ever had any experience of doing such tasks, or is this asking
    way too much (probably the latter!)?
    Many thanks,

    Not sure how to say this without sounding rude, but have you considered
    buying a car that has these features as standard?

    *convert the manual windows to electric ones*

    This is a big job to undertake unless you are qualified and have the time.
    But it can be done - the 306 was prone to problems in this area so if you
    went to the breakers yard, chancers are you could end up with faulty second

    *is it possible to install central locking onto a non-central
    locking car?*

    Again a big job for a first timer. another phrone fault on 306s


    I have the toad alarm on my 306 which I had fitted, because the garage I
    bought it from said the peugeot alarm worked but when I got it home the damn
    thing was broke.

    Thanks for the reply everyone.
    The answer to the most wondered question, why didn't I buy one with it
    already fitted, I would have done, however this one that I saw was the
    limited edition Miami model in a metallic ice blue colour, really nice and
    everything. So I figured it's something that could be done given a lot of

    Anyway, I've aquired a universal central locking kit and alarm kit. The
    alarm kit can control the central locking, and it's one of them that if you
    walk into the vicinity of the car with the keyfob it opens/starts for you,
    and alerts you when the car's being tampered with etc. I'm going to go about
    fitting it (the alarm system at least) this weekend, with the help of a
    Haynes manual and a friend.

    I've not spotted an electric window system yet. Seeing as you mention that
    it was prone to problems, I may not go ahead with it. Depends how I feel I

    Many thanks for your help.
