Whoops.
Chain is a sub 1k job these days.

Mine was about 1k when I had mine done. Chain, tensioners, guides and VVT sprockets.

I drew a line under mine when the clutch started making a chattering and a mooing.

Peugeot probably taking my eyes out but they reckon it will be like having a new engine so I'm taking heart at that..11hours labour apparently.
It was way beyond my usual mechanic being able to fix unfortunately.Just feel its a fabulous looking car and get such a buzz driving it and just walking up to it that I can't let go but yes if the next fix is a biggy then I would have to part company😭

Wow 😮 that’s some repair bill, but I can’t Blame you for paying out it shows true love and dedication to your RCZ, I would do the same,
Thing is you should get a good warranty for that kind of repair.
Hopefully you can now enjoy your pride and joy.

I think you're not batty I think I might love my RCZ more than the wife as it will never lose its curves or answer me back lol 😂 and there is no other model out there so sexy...
So happy new year and happy motoring in 2020
Drive safe and stay lucky 🍀 les and Co

Honestly I can't wait to collect it...the service guys were admiring it..I bought it with loads of extras added which gives it that edge...it was love at first sight💕
