Made up a poll here for the benefit of the forum and to shed a bit of light onto the current 406 ownership status, hopefully it will bring some interesting results.

Seriously considering ditching the 407 and getting a 1.9 to run on veg.
Doing 30k per year 40p/l at 45MPG compared to 120p/litre as 65MPG comes out at about £100 per month

Actively looking for a lower mileage 2.2 estate, (mine's now approaching 182k / still adding 1700-ish miles a month).

....then comes the debate about swapping the 'box. :roll:

Had 2, still miss the second one. Would still love to have a coupe at some point but I fear they're getting to the age where the good ones are too expensive and the cheap ones are too far gone... :(

Me and the wife have one each, 1999 and 2000 2,0 hdi manual estate, They are brilliant, mine has 258000 miles on the clock, just had a round trip to work of 250 miles averaging 57.7mpg, and I dont dawdle along, its getting a bit tired inside and bodywork but hope to be receiving a donor car soon to tidy mine up a bit.

I thought that this was that thread resurrected until I checked the date...

Can we have an option for "would seriously love another but knows that's not being realistic"? :cry:

Estate would be more practical with kids and all but a coupe......
