G'day from Down Under!

I'm the proud owner of a 2007 C6. My mechanic has told me I need a new front EGR Valve. Citroen Australia want a vast fortune for one so he suggested I buy one in the UK/Europe. Can anyone suggest a good parts supplier?

The part number is 1618 N7

If you financially contribute to the forum you can get discount from a couple of UK dealers here apparently. I just got quotes on a couple of stuff and I'd say around half the price I'd pay here in NZ (not sure how it compares vs Aussie but I bet it'd be around the same) Even without the discount it should be way cheaper - shipping and import duty might be an issue depending on the size and the value.

You really want to go with Valeo (front one 700410). It is the OEM supplier also. I tried with the cheaper one and it was no good. The cheapest Valeo I found is in Germany, 129 euros: - Click Here - In the UK they seem to cost around 200 pounds.

The only thing is the shipping cost which is an insane 120 euros!!?

Yes, EGR valves on 2.7HDI engines starting 2005 on Jags, Land Rovers and Peugeot´s are the same (EGR coolers are different on Land Rover though but this is not a question). The reference of the valve may also be different, in case of Land Rover it is not front and back but left and right because of the engine displacement. Front=left and right=back.
