possibly the best option.
An non abs OEM one is about £300 and a reconditioned one with abs is £150 ish Shock
Apparently they are OEM and the company has ben selling driveshafts for 26 years.
I just ordered left and right for £34.99 each - arriving Monday. Whistle

Chinese made, but with a 2 year warranty.

All the civic boys are putting 500bhp through theirs, they say

So far I have been impressed with the company. I phoned through on the delivery day to check times. They put me through to a dedicated department who asked for post code and gave me an exact hour slot and it arrived on time. Good quality and the different in a nice tight drive train is great.

Also raised the rear suspension, fitted a new clutch and clutch cable and gave it a full service. I now have a 10k engine, new clutch, new driveshafts and new wheel bearings, steering column ... car drives like showroom car after 6 years of project! It takes any corner at any speed in complete safety and absorbs everything a b road can throw at it without drama. After 6 years and more suspension adjustments than I care to admit she can do the kessler run in 12 parsecs Whistle

/end project!

Is it just me or is there only a near side one available for the 6?

Do these shafts fit a s16?

I sent a message and got this;

"Hi, we only ever sell the Near Side item as Peugeot specified that the Off Side item would not need replacing and would last the life of the vehicle.

Many thanks,

A matching pair as in 2 x nearside ones? LOL

I don't know how they can say that Peugeot told them the offside ones wouldn't need replacing, they are the ones with the intermediate bearing in which has a high failure rate. Doh

So did you get one long shaft with intermediate bearing and one short shaft? As there seems to be a bit of confusion going by the last few posts

I phoned the company up and gave them my reg and they send both left and right shafts ... so far very good.
my little one hid both sets of keys (knowing I had to fly out of Heathrow - bloody kids! Big grin). So a rapid 210 mile test at 3am would have revealed any weakness Thumbs up

I have had a few of these for various cars. there are pretty good quality for the price, not had a problem with them so far. I would say they are better quality than the ones your get from euro/gsf and a fraction of the price.

I had a pair of faulty brake calipers from them and they were complete bas**rds to deal with, after them sending out 3 (!?) replacements all with the same fault, despite me spending several hours on the phone to get through to the 'technical manager' to explain the issue and ask if he could check the next calipers - same thing, same thing, same thing....

It took forever to arrange pickup of the old ones and so far, 8 months later, I'm still chasing a refund for 4 calipers (I had to buy the second set outright because I couldn't wait on the original pair shipping back to them, which they assured an immediate refund for - never happened).

Complete set of arse monkeys.
I got so p**sed off I just went up to GSF for a pair in the end and sent the whole f**king lot back.
