    My car

    The car is a real head turner and beautiful to drive. The doors are somewhat heavy but that is a minor point. I love all the gizmos; from the automatic closing of the windows when you lock the doors to the excellent talking sat nav system. I have an integral telephone and that is I think the best thing in the car. I need it for business as I drive around quite a lot. I have owned it for 6 months and nothing has gone wrong; yet!.

    My car

    After hitting 40, I decided I needed a fun car for myself. My wife runs the practical family car. I had the usual coupe short list - Mercedes CLK, Audi TT, BMW 3 Series and so on, but my friend convinced me to try the Peugeot 407.

    I am glad I did - I was struck by the refinement and equipment list and the drive sealed it. The engine is a delight and the levels of equipment are second to none. It's a head-turner as well, and best of all it was well priced.

    If you can see past the badge and don't care what your neighbour's perception is (and to be honest, part of the appeal was not to be a 'Belly Button' BMW or Audi owner - Belly Button because everyone has one).

    You must try this car - the 407 Coupe entertains is roomy for four and eats the miles at an acceptable cost. To specify a 3 Series coupe to this standard you need to add £15,000 - why?

    My only reservation I have coming out of an A6 is the build quality inside - so far I have had no problems, but it doesn't look as well put together and some of the plastics do look cheap. However, time will tell all, and for my money it is a gamble worth taking.

    My car

    Have had this car some 2 1/2 years now but it's going in the next couple of weeks, since buying a Honda Civic Type R last year, it's taken a backseat and only gets used for shopping and going to work, it's only covered 16k miles since new and 2.5k miles since last Febuary so it's a waste of a car and we are going to downsize to a new 207 SW so still staying with Peugeot. We will be sorry to see it go, I still enjoy the surge when you put your foot down and it's a very easy car to drive and I would say it's equal to any BMW i've owned (M3 being the exception) it's not been without a few niggles, mainly electrical, alarm going off on it's own, fuel flap release accuator, radio does it's own thing sometimes and a blocked fuel filter (they fitted a modified one, so is there a known problem?) but they were all fixed and quickly by my local dealer under warranty, i've had worse problems with new BM's. Would I reccommend one? yes! without any hesitation it is and remains a lovely looking car and you get a lot for your money, enjoy!

    My car

    The car is very good looking; people stop and look. It's brilliant to drive, too!

    The problem with the whole satellite-navigation system is the double screens. The one just squashed in the middle of the instruments is the trouble. Peugeot haa a software problem, but I got mine fixed for free.

    The cabin its huge and luxurious. Each time I go to Yorkshire, I feel like sleeping in it. The engine is also impressive; I had a turbocharger fitted to mine for only £1789, so now it has 300bhp.

    New buyers should go for the coupe - it's brilliant. Many people will look at it, but be sure to check the satellite-navigation system.
