an odd choice really, why it doesnt even have a big arse anymore, or the tech of the c4. The new megane i think i can say is pointless

Yeah I know

I posted on this without realising the thread topic properly
I went back in to delete, but for some reason I accidentily quoted it, and forum wouldn't let me edit either :|

Anyway, wouldn't have a hatchback..............being a fat b'stard I need all the room I can get :D :D :D :D
Went in the inlaws ashtray in the summer, and by god it was uncormfortable with the lack of room.
Anytime we went out with them, they kept offering to drive, but I kept turning it down for the comfort of the 406


I guess the 407 with a pan roof is one to avoid then if the roof leaks :shock:
Just keep having a peak for a replacement for mine, and late hi spec 406 estates seem quite expensive relatively,
and the 407 sw "can" be picked up cheaper
1999 D8.5 HDi GLX - Sold :(

2007 Mondingo Zetec - I seek forgiveness :( Bring back my 406

There has never been a single recorded case of a fault exhisting on any Peugeot 406 [citation needed]
Id love to have a big windscreen, do they get dirty?

I'd be interested to know too, it's been putting me off anything with a panoramic roof since I heard it. I was actually sniffing round a 307 estate with one at the time...

leaks might be found in the winner of this poll:
