Perfect for motorway cruising in comfort and surrounded by all the gadgets needed. A little more challenging in tight spaces and car parks but put your faithin the parking sensors! A serious option to spending a lot more on a German rival that will still have some of the gadgets missing and you'll. When i told people what i had traded my CLK in for they looked at me funny but when i picked them up in it for the first time their opinion changed instantly. Only criticism is as it's front wheel drive and carrying a heavy V6 it doesn't take long to get through a front set of tyres and they're not cheap with the 18" wheels.
I purchased my 407 Coupe 2.7 v6 at the end of May 2008. I had 19inch alloys, twin exhaust, spoiler and the RT4 multi-media system put on as extras. It is the best thing i have ever done. I used to have a 407 1.6 diesel, which was an excellent car. My new 407 coupe is a little thirsty around town, but what you have to think is, it is the equivalent of a top end Audi or BMW. I have to say that there are a lot of cars on the road, and my Coupe has stood up to a lot of them. Why pay double when you can have a 407 coupe and its so pretty aswell.
I bought my car a year ago after being contacted by my local dealer. It was a 4 month old example with 700 miles on the clock. It seemed a lot of car for the money - £16,000 - and my beloved 406 coupe was due for a change. From day one I have loved the car and I haven't experienced any problems at all in 15,000 miles. It is supremely comfortable and looks fantastic. It is one of the most refined cars for cruising. It's road-holding is excellent. It feels a solid rather than nimble car to drive but I like that. My one fear is that Peugeot will decide to stop importing it one day due to poor sales in the UK. Even more testimony to me though that I have discovered one of the best-made, lesser known and exclusive affordable models on the road today. It takes owning one to realise that the less prestigious badge compared to BMW or Mercedes is the only negative. Having said that, I find the that image of the German cars is rather suspect anyway.
Had to sell my 407 coupe due to a baby on the way - but I really will miss this car! I have seen a few spy pics of the new Peugeot 408 out next year, im hoping they will do a coupe version of this, I would definately consider it if its as good as the 407.

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…
