407 Coupe

Post by autocrazy » 09 Mar 2016, 11:53

Hi

Over the weekend I bought a Peugeot 407 coupe 2.2L. This I think is a hidden gem of a car - I am very impressed and chuffed on how little I paid for such a nice car.

Other 407 Coupe owners, do drop by and say a Hi

Welcome :D Lovely looking car that!

You're right about them being hidden gems! The 407 range as a whole are possibly the most under-rated Peugeots of all time. They are seriously good.

Current: Peugeot 407 Sports Coupe 16v 2.0 diesel (quiet, quick, handling and cornering very nice, suspension a little hard - can I have my C5 back, please?, lol).
4 Jobs (that I know of):
1. Fit towbar (I'm a caravanner)
2. Fit 'Connect2' bluetooth handsfree
3. Fit front proximity sensors
4. Enjoy

I get that this is an old post, but I've just bought a 2009-reg, 2.0 (HDI 138) 407 Coupe S and have to post that I think it's great.

The suspension is a little stiffer compared to my last car (Citroen C5 Exclusive), but the bonus is the increase in handling/cornering ability and the seats are great. It isn't quite as well specc'd as the C5, in that the seats are manual and it doesn't have front sensors, but that said, it's a good looker with a well-hidden big boot! It seems higher geared than the C5, which makes it quieter and more relaxing, until you get the chance to open it up and even then it doesn't make any fuss about it.

I've bought some front sensors from a breaker and am going to fit a BT handsfree, which should just about complete the package (apart from a clip-on booster, which makes a massive difference to this engine, as I know from experience in the C5), in terms of bhp and torque - makes towing a caravan a joy rather than a chore). Can't wait to get everything sorted and enjoy!
