After a center section for the Rallye, only options I can see are the hoffman on ebay for £45 or the Klarius on Eurocarparts for £93.

Any other options out there? Tempted by the Hoffman but can't find any info on it.

I got a centre section for mine from Peugeot a couple of years ago, no idea if they still stock them but it was around £150 at the time.

I'd get from Peugeot if they're still available, I've not been impressed by build quality of oem exhausts, at least not the bosal rear silencer that ive got on and has replaced under warranty.

The price of a Klarius is not low enough to justify going for it instead of OEM in my opinion.

No info on Hoffman exhausts, but someone on here was impressed by a Hoffman sports cat a while back?

Things have clearly changed then, so disregard my out-of-date info. The Klarius used to be close to OE prices. It is very similar in appearance to OE, and my Klariius back box fits on the back of my OE centre section.

I've had mine on back order from the dealers for the last two months now!

I bought the klarius PG512V off ebay for £65.32 as a stop gap.

The quality isn't great but it's better then the noisy wrong centre section that was on the car.

Are these any good?

I was just quoted over £450 for a rear Exhaust from Peugeot ... and it was not even an OEM part but a eurocarpart replacement.

My last eurocarparts cente and rear exhaust were very poor quality.

Peugeot OEM centre section is now £180 before discount.

any suggestions?

I went for the wincarparts £224 for rear and centre sections delivered by ups next day guaranteed for 3 years. Has to be better than Eurocarparts who currently do not have the rear in stock. Many thanks for the winparts link.

I bought a Hoffmann centre section from ebay, it's rattling like mad already after less than 6 months.
I seem to remember that there was a Hoffmann sticker stuck over the actual brand when i received it so i'm guessing Hoffmann are just rebranding another make or i got scammed Laugh

O.E. Peugeot centre section is s**t quality these days. At least mine is. And I don't mean the cheaper replacement parts you can also buy at the dealer. On mine the little heat shield that shall shield the rubber hanger became loose only about half a year after fitment and caused a bad rattle that I thought the cat crumbled. No problem you think, just remove that useless shield, and so I did. Developed a rattle inside the centre silencer during the following months which became f**king nerve-racking until it finally cracked in half 13 months after buying it. Of course Peugeot refused any warranty adjustment because they only give 12 months of warranty. Thumbs down

Will never buy an exhaust from Peugeot anymore. Did it once for peace of mind, to fit and forget it for the next ten years and paid that extra price for it but learned my lesson. Welded that f**ker up and it's holding up so far. Waiting to be replaced with the German equivalent of the Jetex system soon.

This is my concern with buying anything from the dealer as they don't seem fussed about supplying decent quality parts for these older cars.

I went for an MTS branded centre section. My Rallye came with an MTS back section that seemed good quality so that's what I went with for the centre bit.

Seems good so far




The IMASAF one's on eBay look decent too

Bosal are s**t. I brought centre section In Belgium last year and it's massively better than Bosal part it replaced. The only downside is rear box not having the chrome tip.

Received 2 pattern parts and both do not fully onto the cat, the pipe from the cat is too wide to fit into the centre box. Anyone had this issue before? If it did fit onto the pipe it would be too short to reach the back box.

I don't have a genuine cat although the BMCats part on there seems to be very similar to OE.

Does not fit at all, or like it is about 1mm difference? In the last case it might work if you use sanding paper to get some rust of the cat. Had a similar issue with a OEM center section. Thought it did not fit at all. Sanded a bot of rust, just a tiny bit of rust of the cat pipe that goes into the center section. After that, it was an easy fit.

I couldn't get one to fit so got my local custom exhaust place to make it fit. Not had a problem with it since.

BM Cats are generally very good in terms of fit. I have one on the Xsara and it is far, far better than the Klauris POS that didn't fit properly at all.....

If the above suggested by Joep doesn't work, try finding a place that makes exhausts...

They should have the kit to expand the pipe very slightly to make it fit
