Hi to all out there.....

Post by Drewnn3 » Tue Apr 19, 2016 3:03 pm

Just thought I would say hi.....

I have just bought myself a little gem - 99 V reg 406 estate, metallic blue xu10 engine with AL4 auto box...7 seater!! GTX spec....
This happens to be the second 7 seat 406 that I have owned, my first being a MY2001, Green, 2.0HDi 110 manual called "Jabba the Pug"....(affectionately named by my wonderful other half.)

got to say I have appreciated big pugs since the days of my father owning a Peugeot 505 2.2 GTi family 8 seater...

Though it was about time I got on here, any helpful tips always welcome...... :cheesy:

Welcome indeed!

A pez-engined 7-seater with slushmatic box - you're already a winner here so well done! :D

There's pretty much zero to worry about with petrol Peugeots but it would be well worth getting the slushmatic fluid changed for the sake of good maintenance and long service.

Was thinking that might be a good idea....she runs well...only 105k on clock with last service at 96k including filters...thanks for the advice though....
