There have been a number of debates on these forums about the build quality of D8 vs D9.

I know that my two D9s have both been very well built, with only minor niggles on each. The passenger-side electric window failed on the saloon, never did get that fixed. On the Coupe, the fuel filler cap warning light comes on every time I start the engine - irritating, but not life-threatening.

There definitely is, try owning both at the same time.

I'd have said the 2.1 is the best derv lump, the HDi has too many "issues" for me. A 2.1td with a D9 front on it in estate form, perfik.

but all the hdis issues have at some point been solved on this place, and theres always a possibility of remapping a hdi. But on the interior quality is there anything in it, they both have the same interiors just a different mfd, and d9s mostly have climate control, perhaps the com2000 is what lets the side down.

the d9 interior has a hazzard light button in place of the d8s clock and this is because the d9s bigger dot matrix display incorporates a clock into it where the d8 mfd could not. The climate control in the d8 is slightly different from a d9, and on cars equipped with manual controls i think theres a difference but ive never been in such a car, The design of the doorcards on the two is different but interchangeable. The dials in d9s are different in that they are all circular. And i think thats the main differences covered

Nope yours is the worst of both worlds. D9 looks better, but HDi is too complex, 1.9TD is far better.

Best of both worlds would be a D9 body with D8 1.9TD engine.

I'll come out and say it.

I prefer the front of the D9. I regard it as one of Peugeot's best front end designs. It harks back to 505s and 305s, looks aggressive but classy at the same time.
