405 MI16v

Post by Blagarse Yank » 15 Jun 2002, 22:16

Can anyone suggest a garage in the Southeast of England for servicing?
I just bought a MI16v for a good price, but it has a blowing exhaust.
Thanks

For exhaust work why not choose one of the many exhaust centres. Most carry sufficient stock to do instant fitting.

JohnD,
Thanks-that's my logical next step if I can't find a reliable and honest garage.
There may/will probably be a few things on the car that I can't do myself-and so was hoping for a refernce of a good garage.
Regards
Rob

Hi,
Tell me where abouts in the South East that you are, and I'll try and point you in the direction of your local independent Peugeot specialist.

Jon,
That would be much appreciated. I work near Eastbourne if there are any out this way that you know of.
Impressed by your range of products by the way.

The nearest specialists that I know of are in Hove,they are Citroen specialists, but the owner Peter knows the BX 16v inside out, and thats the same engine as the Mi16.

I happened to look at the number plate of the 306 my daughter recently bought. The original supplying dealer was "Becks of Eastbourne". But no doubt they will be more expensive than Jon's suggestion above.
