ok i asked my local peugeot dealer to quote me for replacement of the drivers side sill and repair one fixing on the arche body kit.

They quoted me in total 340.02!!! OMG day light bleeding robbery.

Does any one know of a good body repair place round north hertforshire or south cambs?

I felt ill looking at the quote - one bloody sill 340 notes! ahhhhhhh

nice one, the parts in question are :
7010a5 - sill protecto*p x1
856515 - seal washer x10
if this is any help, the sill needs spraying to match car colour, biancA!!


I'd rather be stripped naked left for dead on a desert island than pay peugeot what they want!!!! ah 340 quid!!!! what the hell!:mad: :mad: :mad: :mad: :mad: :mad: :mad:

your saying thats a bad price - which if that was just to supply the skirt and fit ONE clip then it is a rip off.

If the 340 was for pug to supply the skirt and clip AND spray it AND fit it then thats about average.

Its unclear what you were quoted for in total.?

Why dont you fit it your self - its easier than easy!!

Buy the skirt - drop it off at a body shop to spray and then pick it up.

My wheel arch came off on my GTi.

I was going to get a new one, but they were about 40, plus loads to spray, so I went to B&Q and fixed it myself :)

It was to replace the sill with new part, spray, refit and fix the arch, 340 quid is outrageous for this and anyone whos says otherwise is off their trolley, i am seriously thinking about buying the sill and doing it myself.

I will be getting more quotes for the work and then i'll see, have friends in the motor trade.

But more important is getting engine up to scratch and exhaust.

for supply of the 2 parts, spraying and fitting i dont think it is to bad either, its about equal to what you would pay for the same job at any decent body shop in my opinion

yeah could take it to a cheaper body shop .......but it will be shit

you pay for what you get

when the car cost 1800, 340 for one peice is crap.
will sort it out, but for now it'll do.
