    Apparently they destroy your gearbox over time due to the vibration.

    Dad had a solid flywheel fitted to his 307 and its a different car, no issues and has covered plenty of miles. When getting quotes he did ask Peugeot for a price and they said that they no longer fit DMF's, only conversion kits.

    I wish I'd of seen this solid kit before I changed my DMF in January this year, I'd of had no problems in buying that over a DMF.

    There's plenty of horror stories but most are just that, stories. A lot of people speak highly of solid flywheels who I know, DMF's arn't upto the job.

    Why would they not come from the factory with a solid flywheel? If they were meant to have one, would they not come with one?

    I've heard about this and it is done, all above board.

    Thinking about it, I suppose there is nothing to stop a dodgy garage from doing this then charging you full wack for a DMF, whos to know

    don't know mate, suppose you have a similar argument with EGR's, DPF's etc Is it all necessary or just something that has a short life span and will cost money. I know that my diesels of old never had any of this rubbish fitted and never gave me any trouble
