Hi everyone

Post by KiwipugUK » Fri Feb 26, 2016 11:26 am

Hi all, I'm a Kiwi living in North Wales. Had Peuegots (by the dozen in NZ) before but this is my first 406. I have an S Estate 110hp Hdi manual. Done a few miles but from experience with all my taxi driver customers (Work at Euro Car Parts...) the 406 diesels seem unstoppable!
There are a few trim bits I need to tidy her up with and and some upgrades to do - so no doubt will be asking some questions in the right places soon!

Thanks for the welcome guys :-) Now, if someone could point me in the direction of a set of mud flaps, a tow bar and the trim for the RH front of the bumper!
Who is good for a re-map up this way too? Needs more go!

This is what the 406 is replacing, was devastated when i had to sell her to come to the UK...

Something in the UK must have been REALLY attractive to you to have to leave that lovely 405 behind in your homeland :(
