I voted main dealer, The reasons being its under warranty so let Peugeot pick up the bill & seeing as its a 206 with CAN - VAN easy for a garage who don't know what they are doing to f**k it up.

I bet you didn't have to look too hard to find a TU lump with a faulty Sagem coil pack or an EW lump with knackered hydraulic tappets :wink:

You done many ET3 head gaskets yet? I hear they are failing at a high rate at low mileage's too :lol:

Yeah its a good site & shows some great detail, Im just a Peugeot owner, But when I show the lads down the dealership you understand whats going on & can speak Peugeot tech talk they talk to you & explain things better & in much more detail, They also tell you handy hints & problems the public dont know about :wink:

I just heard on the grapevine ET3 lump = head gasket & or hydraulic tappet problems :shock:

as you may have heard today in the news about the price of main dealers.some being £100 an hour in london that may be normal but the hole country is not at that rate.main dealers are so under pressure form manufactures and have to purchase all the latest equipment what ever the cost then cost of training and over heads its a nite mere.the cost of good technicians is not cheap either.
