Re: What year D8 up to ?

Hmmmm. You should be safe with a year 2000 bonnet, as I think anything newer than a T reg is D9 ( some T reg could be either ) however Monaco Blue is a D9 only colour :cheesy: Didn't know that mate, re Monaco blue :roll: but I think the bonnet I've been offered is China blue So a respray is on the ...

What year D8 up to ?

I know it probably sounds like a daft question but my 02 406 needs a new bonnet :roll: It's been getting worse for a couple of years, well with the amount of work I've put into the old girl I want to replace it. So how to identify a Mk1 bonnet to a Mkll, the one I've been offered is year 2000 :roll:...

Re: OEM wheels for brembo V6

will I be able to upgrade to brembos? "upgrade" is not the correct word to use there... The soggy, squeally, expensive and difficult-to-maintain brembo brakes are by far the worst part of the v6 coupé. When I had mine I wished I'd upgraded to brakes from any other 406. mjb, Dare I say it but yours ...

Re: OEM wheels for brembo V6

Hi all I'm new to the forum, so will present myself in the appropriate thread. In the meantime, I'm wondering what OEM Peugeot wheels will clear brembo V6 brakes without the use of spacers? There is a set of 207 Hockenheim wheels (17 inch) I can have for little money, but would they f.i. fit? It wo...

Re: power loss

I feel for you I really do, I'd stick with it, the camshaft position sensor wiring is quite fragile & prone to failure. If you replace the sensor / sensors make sure you use genuine ones, don't have to be from the steelers though. If you think yours is unreliable then don't buy a 307 :roll: & the VW...
