what price 16v head gasket set?

Post by toddao »

Anyone know what a reasonable price would be for the above? I've been quoted €80 and I've got no idea - seems a bit steep but then it only fits the one engine rather than the GTI which fits various Peugeots as well. :?:

this yellow writing is really hard to read

Well that set fits Peugeot's too and many of the parts are used on 2.0 engines.
They're about £70+ the dreaded over here, but remember to check if yours comes with the head gasket itself (sounds dumb, but quite often they don't as there is a choice of thickness')

Make sure its a good make too, doesn't have to be genuine but something like Mellior (sp?) would be preferable.

is that for the set or just the gasket? If its for the full set then i'd like one :D

I pay around £70 for the set and about £30 for the gasket alone (Payen typically)
