After thinking i had finally cracked the regen problem after dpf removal it came back to bite me on the arse again and after getting second opinion and finding out it could well fail mot because they removed the cat as well as dpf and plenty of arguments with so called remappers looks like weighing it in not really what i want to do because its a great car barring dpf problem .
Would cost about £650 to put right but i have made my mind up got to go.
Peugeot garage near me offered between £1500 and £2000 for it :(

If someone wants to make me an offer on it can do .

pics in my gallery full history new cambelt + waterpump new starter and performance remap.

Looking at a new 3008 on mobility .

Bad stuff nigel , what about trying to deal with those guys to get some of your money back and taking out your engine ecu sending it over here to my man to check , pay postage and plus i think around £230 , they should agree to that , just means you couldn`t use the car for 48 hours , he gets ecu`s posted all the time securely

But it's a Vauxhall could you live with the embarrassment?
Well i need an estate because of my dog and to get my dads mobility scooter in and not much choice on the mobility really 207 and 308 to small for me i like the 3008 but want more for my 407 need to shop round
get more in bits for mine lux pack sat nav but be damn shame to do that bargain really for someone .

I can live with it yes nice looking car as long as it gets me from a to b no problems will be happy .
Thing that let peugeot down is the customer service.

driver at our place has a vectra 2.2 diesel sri and its shite :nod: he bought it a week after i bought the 407 and its always in the garage, problem after problem and he's a perfectionist as well. His neighbour has an insignia and lend him it for a few weeks whilst he was abroad, paul drove it for 3 days then decided his vectra was better and more refined than the insignia :eek: plus the rear window's more like a 'porthole' apparently

Not keen on Vauxhall either as a main car, wifes astra needed all four springs replacing at least once, several coil packs, air con constantly leaks and noisy and egr replaced.

Friend's Corsa front spring failed at speed and front end dropped she sh1t herself.

Funny that , my mate just bought a signum , front spring broke at speed as well , he`s now replacing droplinks and anti roll bar bushens as he can here a knock somewhere , plus had to get back seat covered as it would only psv for 2 people in the back thanks to some sort of cup holder table thing in the middle.
