    Default Peugeot Parts from Thailand and China

    Has anyone bought parts from Thailand or China?
    When I was in China about 5 years ago I saw lots of Pugs 504/5s and saw palnt making Pugs and others making MB and VW.

    Default Chinese peugeot

    It sounds like a good idea to try to get some parts from there. There would almost certainly be a Chinese person in Australia that would know someone in China who could organise parts. One would need to check quality and such though.
    Go for it!

    Default Don't tell the Chinese

    I suggest that the Chinese, crafty buggers that they are, probabley recycle harder than the Arabs, if we were to let them know that there were Peugeot parts in Australia they'd be shipping them out by the boat load. That's out, back to China. Just a thought!

    Peugeots are built in China and there a manufacturers of parts for many European cars such as Benz, VW, Audi. I was just wondering if anybody had imported from Thailand or China.

    Default Thai Peugeot

    I have spent a lot of time in Thailand over the past 10 years. I have come to love the country, and I will be leaving on the 30/3/2005 to spend 12 months there. I have seen lots of Peugeots driving around so I am sure that there would be a spare parts market its a matter to getting to know some owners and that should lead you to the source.I plan to do just that. I hope that there is a Peugeot club. I know that Vietnam and Cambodia have many french cars from the days of french colonialism.Bangkok has some well restored older cars Zephers Humbers Holdens not to mention older motor bikes.
    I will do some research and keep in touch over the next 12 months.

    I lived in Singapore and travelled throughout the region in the mid to late 70s. I brought back GS parts when I returned home in 1980, and arranged other bits, such as a new diff from KL, later on.

    You need to make sure you distinguish between genuine parts made under licence or by the original manufacture in an Asian plant, and non-geniune copies.

    Non-geniune or cheap copies can be just as good, or complete rubbish. Depends on what you're buying. Copies of mechanical parts may be good, satisfactory or dangerous. Things like lights and lenses may look okay but fade or crack in our harsh sunlight. Other parts like grilles may be technically of a lower quality, but you would never know and it doesn't matter anyway.

    Icon5 505 parts: What about Egypt?

    Just adding to the conversation, I understand that they still make 505s in Egypt. I assume this is under licence from Peugeot, so would this be a good source of 'genuine' parts? What about importing whole cars... cheap?

    cheers,

    Default Thai Pugs

    Would anyone know if there is a Peugeot club or similar in south east asia? I remember reading somewhere of a Japanese Peugeot club. I may try and find a peugeot dealer in Bangkok if one exists. I would love to find if parts are available for 405s like brake parts and other parts that have limited life. Shipping from Thailand is very reasonable with a few companies very keen for your Baht.
