Re: and today i have mostly been...

I'm sure it's to do with being judgemental and prejudice. I'm not sure what people think of 406 coupe's nowadays? perhaps the Ford Capri of the 2000''s? Renner Twingo = incompetent driver aboard. Volvo S40 = I think it almost shrugs off its 'giffer' status but seems to be falling into the hands of s...

Re: and today i have mostly been...

I do get bullied along in the Volvo too, being as it's nearly 14 years old so a complete death trap in most motorists eyes.

Their bullying stops though when I poke the gas and 220 Swedish horses.....

Re: WANTED: Coolant degassing tank (D8 V6)

That's a rare thing now I'd guess, Is there an aftermarket stainless steel one made? what about 'Ade' on the Coupe Forum? think he breaks these models.

Re: 2006 407 2.7 HDI Oil leak ?

Listen to jasper's advice, he knows :)

Turbo Diesel engines can deposit oil in the airways to and from the intercooler, a fair bit of oil can collect in this way, the oil gets carried over from the seals in the turbo...this may be worth checking as it could be leaking out somewhere.

Re: and this week i have mostly been...

...getting bullied. I mean 'little car' bullied. I've been driving the Twingo for 2 weeks (more on this later) and the amount of road bullying I've experienced is shocking :shock: it's as if whoever comes up behind me is thinking "I must get past this car" and it escalates from there. Err, hello, I'...

Re: Dogmobile 3 The Camper

Bejesus, look at the size of it! which begs the question, where will you keep it?

I approve btw, I can see why you've gone for that one and how cool are those Captain's Chairs I don't think I'd ever tire of spinning them round :oops:

Re: and today i have mostly been...

Great progress update thanks, can I borrow a piece of firewood please? :lol:

I've not seen a sand sub-base like that before, interesting the different methods used around the world; proving again it doesn't have to be done a certain way.

I guess if it all comes down to "not much to report" at least you'll know your actually in good fettle :wink:

Re: Going to stop lurking now...

Welcome in! As doggy says the 406 is a nice familiar comforting thing to flop into at the end of a hard day and it'll waft you home without any fuss. Arguably, no definitely, the best car Peugeot ever made. It's such a shame to see numbers dwindling and people giving up on them when faced with a fai...

I turn to mush in hospitals, just want to get out of there pronto, sorry to hear you had a panic attack, nothing to be ashamed about that's your defense mechanism saying "lets get out of here pronto".

I was so distracted by the bill board as I drove past, I nearly dropped my phone, my map and my coffee.. :wink: I don't know what you're complaining about to be honest, last week the DVLA were doing roadside checks near me and as I made a harsh U-turn to avoid them I spilled my glass of Red Wine :f...

Morning!

Yes that was very lucky, I like a story like that, my car ownerships tend to be negative financially.....

Hope you enjoy the Coupe.

Pointy Indicators on modern cars

Saw a new French car yesterday sporting those Audi style 'pointy' indicators and thought enough in enough :frown: For decades the universally accepted signal for a car turning or changing lanes has been a flashing orange light, that's it, we don't need this orange light to perform a silly pointy wal...
