Hi
Check the turbo isn't blown, They do have a high failure rate & finding a 605 / 406 / Xantia 2 litre turbo to rob engine parts off is difficult.
Make sure the auto box is working ok, Check all the electric's are working, Check over the whole car & dont pay too much for it, I wouldnt give more the £100 for it myself!
Also if it has the keypad immobiliser fitted, Make SURE you get the 4 digit security code from the owner!
1994 M plate was change over year time too, If it has the drivers airbag its the later facelifted car.
605s are rare on the road, But fixing a broken / dodgy one can be a wallet draining experience!

Hi
Just check for smoke from the exhaust, Does the engine pull nicely?
Its only a 2 litre 8 valve with a low pressure turbo, 155 bhp from the factory.
Dont expect sports car performance from it, But it should move pretty quickly if you put your foot down.
Im not too clued up on the turbo engine, But I have a mate whos works for Peugeot & he replaced 3 of those turbos last year on 406s.
