 Peugeot 307 Breaknck 
I picked up Compomotive MO 7x17" ET15 wheels with 205/40/17 tyres, destined for 205 Mi32. The 307 looked rather hardcore with them on, I loved the looks.

One morning, the engine had seized and evetually started up, running on three cylinders and vigorously knocking. Having exhausted all the other options, I've had to get the car transported to a Peugeot garage.

Guys at Brkic Servis feared the worst, as the coolant expansion tank was empty, meaning it could be a case of a hydro-lock. They quickly removed and dismantled the engine.

The head showed no signs of damage and the head gasket didn't have any obvious indications of failure either. Still,  the head was sent off for a rebuild and a leak-down test.

Back together - running sweet and I should be without worries now. The thing is, I thought I wouldn't have to worry about it in the first place, wth such a young car by my standards :-).
