Hello everyone!

Welcome to the forum.

I ran 406 Hdi estates for about 10 years and very many miles, I think they are the best cars Peugeot ever made for driving and reliability, they do everything nicely and have a good comfort/road holding compromise. Enjoy yours.

Hi, welcome.

Yours looks like a nice clean example - worth the wait?

Like most members here, I've owned numerous 406s and while they were mostly cheap and cheerful means of motoring, they do have a habit of getting under your skin :cheesy:

Have a look at the Knowledge Base here, it's on the home screen ( I think... ) and get yourself familiar with the 406 'quirks'.... :wink:

Enjoy your new car.
2003 2.2hdi estate - mine
1998 Volvo 940 auto estate - also mine
2019 Citroen C3 something - the wife's

Wow you leave it twenty years & then buy a 97/98 D8 phase one :shock:

You've got a good six years of newer 406's to wade through yet :wink:

Great car's, I've personally had four & still own one after eight year's, It's just the wrong one I kept :(
