Re: Electric sliding door installation nightmare!!

By the way!
Don't fiat just make you laugh,
rang to different fiat garages today just to see what prices they quoted.
you'd expect them to be the same, give or take a smidge.

1 quoted 156.28 ea
1 quoted 132.34 ea

Neither would offer discount on bulk and both were adament that those were fiat prices not their prices!

It was amusing when I pointed out that another fiat dealer was quoting 20+ less. he then hung up on me!

Ironically thought I'd call Citreon, Politeness gratified, Difference: 83.80 ea from citreon And believe it or not it's even the same manufacturer!

Still bloody expensive though!

Yep 80 each x4 plus wheel recon 170 ( well may as well do the job properly!) plus removal/ refitting & balancing 50+

. . . A lot to pay for something that could just end up being a pain in the backside!

I'm actually contemplating Buying a new set of aftermarket 17" alloys and having them fitted on them.

It's actually cheaper to get 17" tyres than it is for 15".

Got a couple of months to make my mind up though as my current tyres will get me another couple of months yet.

7J x 17" alloys complete with 215/55/17 Tyres +off sets + lock nuts and balanced. set of 5 for 599.
now that's not bad given that 4 new tyres (205/65/15) are gonna set me back 225 inc fitting!

Re: Electric sliding door installation nightmare!!

Not sure about 17", it may make a comfortable car a bit rough over the potholes etc.

Why not get the 16" Prestigio wheels? There are a few on eBay at the mo.

Re: Electric sliding door installation nightmare!!

Worth a punt, the worst that can happen is they are crap quality, and hoping not to get stung by import and vat duty.

Electric sliding door installation nightmare!!

Got to say though, anything I've ever bought from China or HK has either worked or if not had my money back with no quibbles.I think they always mark as low value and gift, USA, now that's a different matter, been battered by import and VAT on several occasions thanks to likes of DHL!

Well our Eleganza has 16" wheels - on which a while back I had 65 profile tyres fitted as I thought the ride was pretty rubbish on the 60 profile ones.

(But then I've always had big Citroens in the past - in our CX safari sleeping policemen could be completely ignored, I do mean completely!)

No improvement to the Ulysse, still what I'd call a horribly hard ride over road imperfections. Should I stick with 2.5 bar? Yes, I do know it's a van...

Same here never had any quibbles ordering from Asian countries only had 1 occasion to send something back. I always ask em to mark as gift and 90% do.

Got hit with 67 import duties when I ordered my 30" comp monitor which realistically negated the bulk of the sayings that I'd made!

Re: Electric sliding door installation nightmare!!

I will revive this subject. I mounted the electric sliding door to my Ulysse 2004 from Phedra 2002 donor. In my BSI I activated the electric door through the Peugeot planet. Now when I press the button, it only beeps 3 times and the door is motionless. I have a door initialization error in the fault memory. Is there anything else to activate in BSI?
