Re: Autumn 2019 meet up?

I'd be up for any of them, like Doggy October would be better.
Just don't disown or shoot me for turning up in the German panzar tank :supafrisk:

Re: Ebay Etc. Just "Run-In" 406s

Peter, With regard to your brake servo issue, I had the same thing a coupe of years ago. Turned out it was the rubber seal that the 90° plastic elbow that connects the vacuum line to it was leaking. A new kit from Peugeot & it's good as new :) ps: it's been discussed on the forum a bit over the years.

Re: New car suggestions

To replace 1 of our 406 estates I got a 2009 Mazda 6 Estate with a 2.2 MZR-CD 185HP Diesel, I wouldn't recommend it to my worst enemy, Nice car to drive but in the past 12 months its had 2 x timing chains, The first one I fitted at 160000 miles as the original was badly stretched, failed under part...

Re: Egr delete on hdi 90bhp

Yep,
Just the same & no light as long as you leave the solenoid connected electrically.

It's better to blank off using blanking plates,
also clean out as much muck as you can from the inlet due to the egr :roll:

Feel free to rant all you like Doggy :cheesy: To be fair at least 25% of caravaners shouldn't be allowed to tow one But thinking about it probably more like 33% of road users should have their licence removed :supafrisk: Yeah know what you mean about the 406, I very nearly sold the lot this year & b...

Re: front springs Question

You'll find that the eibachs are slightly stiffer anyway
& by the nature of lowering it you are increasing the spring rate.

Don't forget to change your dampers while your in there & your strut top bearings at the minimum.
