I bought mine for 13k at 18 months old and I have to say it is fantastic. The car is heavy so not as quick as competitors, but the engine is very smooth, I get upto 45mpg on the motorway and the refinement is excllent. The interior is attractive but I find that it is not as easy to use as a German car. To turn off the AC you have to go into the menu options and the phone is frankly rubbish! The quality is excellent, and I think much better than the saloon, and so far (40 thousand miles on the clock) there have been no problems. Overall it's an excellent car all round, lots of boot space and good rear seats for a coupe.
Had the 2.7HDi for 2 months and the more I drive it the more I like it. Like others I am just out of a company car scheme and fancied something different and this fits the bill.
It really is a GT rather than a sports coupe due to the weight but I am now looking at the various chip options to see what can be done to give it just a small hike in power.
Have also fitted the Peugeot twin exhaust option which looks great but you need to haggle hard as the standard price is over the top.
I recently reluctantly sold my Peugeot as we had a baby. I have to say that the car was outstanding in almost every aspect. I covered around 18000 miles and the car never missed a beat. The interior didnt start rattling like most Peugeots, the electrics continued to be reliable and nothing went wrong with the suspension. The car still gets lots of looks and is different compared to the standard euro boxes. The car is large and difficult to park with a poor turning circle but the parking sensors helped no end. Also the doors a very heavy. The servicing from Stafford Peugeot was excellent - again Peugeot seems to be improving in this area too. I have replaced the 407 with a C220 CDI Sport and it will be interesting to see how they both compare. Overall an excellent car, well worth the money if someone is looking to buy an exclusive model. It comes as no surprise that all owners seem to like them.
Any car that shares its engine with a Jaguar, especially an XJ-type, is likely to be half-decent and at half the price, it must be something of a bargain...
The 407 coupe could never be described as a sports car and in reality its more natural role is that of a long-distance cruiser. In this guise, performance and ride are excellent.
The motor is sufficiently strong to provide decent acceleration to what is a fairly weighty car, although this characteristic does plant it to the road and give it a true feeling of solidity.
Neither engine nor wind noise could ever be described as intrusive and the serene cabin environment allows the hi-fi system to perform at its sonorous best. General levels of equipment are very good.
Visually, it's nothing like as pretty as the old 406 couple and perhaps it bears too close a resemblance to the standard 407. However, the shape cannot be described as uninteresting.
Overall this is a great car and it amazes me that I see so few on my travels!

I once owned an 04 GT (the version with the stupidly heavy clutch - a built in gym for your left leg). I've driven both editions since and must say…
I bought my TT 2 years ago, second hand (99 model)with 40k on the clock. Since then it has done 40 more. Service costs have been £250 a time. Timing…
