Smile Brand new 207 1.6 thp owner looking for tips and advice

Hi all,

Bought today a used 2007 207 1.6 thp 150 HP, 5 speed manual, tons of equipment, 68k miles on it. Registered on the forum right away and want to be a part of the community. I have some car knowledge and I think i can contribute
Its my fourth car, but my first turbo-petrol car, my first 207, and my first Peugeot. Orange, panoramic sunroof, 17'' wheels, part-leather interior etc.
Never been into Peugeots, never driven one. But this one is really something. Read about the company a bit, the history, cars like the 205 gti, and the quality and appeal of this one swayed my mind in favor of PUGs.

I researched the engine and the troubles it had. This one had the timing chain tensonier replaced under warranty. Idles smooth both cold and warm.

Something concerns and issues I have for the future.
1- When i blip the throttle just a tiny tiny little bit while idling the engine vibrates and shakes a bit. When I blip it just a bit more its far smoother. Engine mount? Carbon build up?
2- I am worried about carbon build up taking into account the mileage of the car. I realize that there is no other way to clean the carbon build up short of removing intake manifold. Any other ideas? What would you do?
3- Anything else I should know about the car and any tips on looking out for it are really appreciated. I like taking care of cars and keeping them in the best possible shape.

Welcome & enjoy
I also own a thp150. Its a cracking car to drive. I've had my issues with mine. Moaned and groaned about it but when it runs well I quickly remember why I like driving it.
