I recently replaced my very reliable old shape 406 petrol Coupe with the 407 diesel, and absolutely love it! I have really come to appreciate the new exterior, despite it's quirkiness. Thankfully not a saloon drone shape, either. The quietness is first class - no road or engine noise at all, making for a very refined ride, and the bells and whistles list is enormous, making me a very happy boy. The missus loves the dual climate control, which is standard. There were a couple of niggles getting used to the auto wipers and cruise, but the bluetooth, stereo, parking sensors, and info display, to name but a few gadgets, are great. Overall it really makes me smile when I'm leaving the house. I bought a nearly new bargain, with low miles, so the depreciation has been sorted already, an extended warranty, and the mpg is excellent - 51 from a mix of some town combined with motorway driving. Everone who has been in the car has commented on the quality. It really is awesome!
