newbie...

Post by Jay85 » 21 Mar 2010, 11:59

hi guys, just found this forum and thought id say hi :D

i am a member on a few other forums to do with French Cars but can never get too much knowledge, or share my knowledge too much :)

I currently own a 99 306 XSi 2.0 16v in Astor Grey, my last car was a 00 406 2.0 hdi 110, my Girlfriends car is a 51' plate 307 hdi 90.

we have owned previous french cars as i know my way around them well and i find them easy to work on.

I work at French Spares in Ranskil, which is a breaker yard for French Cars/vans :)

I live close to Doncaster in South Yorkshire so anyone from out this way, give me a shout!

thats all for now.. im sure il have many questions for you guys to answer, and il try answer anything i may know of for you 8-)

Hi Jay and a very warm welcome to the forum :D

Owning those cars, I reckon you will be making some very valuable contributions in the Peugeot area of this forum :wink:

Very useful to know of a dedicated French breaker too..

And there was me thinking I'd accidentially misspelt the word to describe a vehicle dismantler only to find I hadn't...

Unusually for me, I actually spelt it correctly first-time. That MUST be dementia creeping in, my spelling is usually atricious...
