    "A" Frames again, with a difference.. :Doh::Wink:

    Does anybody know if you can "A" Frame a Peugeot 107 car ?????

    It is an Automatic and/or self change type where you can select fully automatic or select manual, manual you just push the Gear Lever forwards for first gear and to change up just keep pulling the lever back change down and just push the lever forwards for each gear change..

    Cannot think what the name of this system is called..

    And all the paperwork and manuals are written in "Belgium" cos it`s a Left Hand Drive Belgium Import.. and I dont do Belgium.. :Sad:


    Thanks..

    Just to jump on the back of this thread, thus avoiding another A frame thread.
    Any one know if fitting an a-frame to a new car voids the warranty ?:RollEyes:
    Just considering a new Seat Mii.

    Without the express permission of the manufacturer/or Dealer in writing
    Yes it would
    A framing despite its popularity, puts stresses and strains on suspension/steering chassis and brakes for which the vehicle was not designed
    I too A frame by the way, but dont use new cars

    Thought it might, I did ask a Fiat dealer about it when I bought my 2 year old panda for A framing. But he had no conception of A frames , I suspect most car dealers are the same:thumb:

    Mo do you mean - triptronic which means its a semi automatic.

    Now if it was one of them fun trikes i could answer that question but wouldnt know if the same applied to a car.

    if 'fun' trike the answer is yes it can be towed A frame style according to those that make them near me
