Bro, can share the contact detail/address of thiese shop please

I just scrape my C5 2L and bought a 2nd hand 508. I believe 508 is sharing similar engine with C5 THP. Maybe just a slight engine variety difference only.

What are the key tell tale sign to look out for? Fault code, vibration, keep needing to top up engine oil? Sorry for the newbiz question. I am really new to this engine
Thank you

Aiya, would be nice if i can get some parts from your old c5.

For valve stem seal, there is no fault code. But you will encounter faster than usual engine oil loss with no sign of leaking, smoke from exhaust after prolong idling and smokescreen when you drove off after idling.

Thanks for sharing. Much appreciated. My C5 was close to 170k km when I send it in. Frankly not in the best condition le

Interior part? Believe I or not, my rear 3rd brake light cover fell off on it on a few months ago and the entire car interior ceiling clothes also detached 1 weeks ago. Seems like they know they are going to be scrap soon so all also give up le

Ya. This is what Michael told me also.

Too bad my work place parking is all open air. Even my Hdb car park also open air. Hope my replacement 508 glue is more power

Mine is 8.5yrs 110000km.

After renew the suspension, feels like new.
So not sure to scrap or not.. if renew coe cost 30k, then it is quite economical to continue enjoy the luxury feel.

Your mileage is quite low. So can consider. C5 is good. It is after starting to drive my second hand 508 then appreciate the magic carpet ride more.

Mine already start to sag. Notice it about 1.5 - 2 years ago. the form layer starts to disintegrate. But it doesn't seem to worsen so I will just leave it as it is. Actually I wanted to get the ac control panel. But Ac on/off button crack at the top portion above the amber led light since 2-3 years ago.

I'm more incline to think it the double wishbone setup that account for the majority of the difference between 508 and C5. The hydropneumatic just help c5 to glide smoother over rough surface. Nowadays i find most macpherson strut suspension car to be lacking compare to double wishbone and/or multilink suspension.
