Could this be a good buy?

All,
I have an offer from a garage where he says he can replace back 2 seats of peugeot 807 and put a new 3 seater with 3 belts thus making it 8 seater car. The details are below

peugeot 807, ESSENSE (Petrol)
consumption: 11 ltrs /100KM
96,000 KM
2005 Jan model
will give 1 yr warranty


Price is under negotiation, he claims 17,000 chf... What do you think of this deal?

The concerns I have are
. 11 lts/100KM is not efficient.. I may end up paying 80 chf per month more than any other 7 seater car
- With all these changes, will this car have any issues with insurance... since the garage is making it 8 seater car not the manufecturer

Any advice would be appreciated

Regards

The car uses a lot of fuel, diesel engine would be better.

The extra seats need to be accepted by the canton testing center, and a new car paper issued.

We wanted to do something similar and convert a 7 seater landcruiser into an 8 seater but we were told that we would not get an insurer to insure it after the modification. Don't know how true that was but the garage who were excellent, were adamant on this point and would not do the work.

"The 807 can seat up to seven people although an optional rear bench seat is available to accommodate eight passengers as a no cost option."

You'd still want to check with your insurer.

The 807 is designed as an 8 seater, the Landcruiser is not.

The mod to the 807 does not need a new doc issued because it's type reference includes the 8 seater. No modification is required, the fitting pints for the new seat and belts are all part of the original spec.
