That's a lot of buttons on the centre console :o

Looks like a good'un to me, well looked after I think.

Well once you've pressed them all you can bet you'll only need two or three of them regularly :)

That look's realy nice CJ :cheesy: , very well looked after & a lovely colour combo. 8)
Love the blue body/ dark grey leather :mrgreen: , look's very close to my monaco blue, & I'm loving that stearing wheel I wonder if one would fit a 406 :roll: .
I hope your very happy with it, for my taste the 407 is a bit marmitey.
I'm afraid they do nothing for me but as i said look's in very nice condition & i hope your very happy with it. :)
2002 110 HDi estate, Rapier in monaco blue! ( found quite a bit more power :cheesy: )

Definitely a Marmite car. It's not the prettiest car in the world but I love the blue colour, the toys and its general good condition. There are so many neglected poverty spec 407s out there, usually in silver. I wouldn't look at them twice.

Does look really good CJ, (though someone needs to have a word with you about the cup).

How are you getting on with it? Bet it's fun with a capital F. :mrgreen:
