OMG
Mine goes in next week to have the offside one replaced due to groan and the "info flash" upgrage to the front suspension, but may ask them to make sure they put some grease in the mirror to prevent re-occurance.
Anybody know if they do that anyway ?

The flash is to do with the top mounts on the front suspension, I think they are plastic and they tend to knock over bumps and mine does it on left turn when getting on my drive. So mine is in at Maidstone getting the mirror done and the "info flash" done to the front suspension.
Shame is... they have given me a 107, now I thought they was trying to tempt TT owners and to add a touch of "class" to the range with a nice sporty, GOOD LOOKING model, giving owners a 107 as a loan car sort of p*sses on that idea a bit. Still will only be till Thursday afternoon, I think. But already had a couple of comments from people about "driving that for a bet ? " "was THAT the best they could do ?" So it is noticable that my RCZ is missing, to some.

Well, that did not take long, just spoke to the Maidstone guys and I can pick up in an hour or so. So far they have been 100% over there. (107 exepted from comment)

Yup mine have started to do that too on both opening and closing. :( most displeasing. Kinda ruins the illusion of cool when you walk up to it only for it to greet you with a groan like an old door on a barn...rubbish!

I sprayed "spray on grease" on my spoiler, which did the trick.

Well its bad news had mine checked yesterday at Swansway Peugeot Chester really great guys made me very welcome and very helpful any way I have the modified mirrors on mine so they tell me that should not groan so they have contacted Peugeot about having them replaced.

Well it was nice to go to the dealers have a free cup of coffee and play in the other RCZ's in the showroom. But until I get them fixed its ear plugs and make sure no one is walking buy to hear the groans
