Talking PUGSA says Hello from the land Downunder

Hello All...well this is my first Pug!!
Many said "DONT" French cars unreliable, fiddly, electrics scrambled blah blah you'll be mug with a pug!!?? Lol.
Previous owner looked after car well mechanically but when I got home and read manual (Yes who reads stuff like this!!) I thought oh no what gives? 1 key only; no Confidential card(Huh!), so no key code, no radio pin, so these challenges ahead, so any hints , advice welcome!
.....but I love the look of my 307cc (No I'm not a hairdresser, yep seriously cant a guy just get a car coz he loves it!!??) its a 2005 metallic silver (Yes saw in threads re blotchy metallic silver) and it does have some areas like that, nothing that jumps out at you but if you look carefully you can see, not sure how to hide or rectify without a respray?? Any suggestions?, Its a auto, petrol and drives smoothly and well (so far!) On my bucket list was to get a convertible....DONE!!
Spring about to hit here so soon the weather just right to go topless!
Certainly very different to my Falcon 98 (which was written off, sadly)
Seems many secrets to these Pug's!!
How do I identify the colour of my leather seats.....seems it is more on darker grey not light but no one here seems to know or can suggest how I can establish, as I need to touch up a few spots...anyone know how to get the right colour? VIN seen in some threads it appears last 8 digits somehow helps? if so mine is 83589989. Any help greatly appreciated.

May I suggest the following mantra to all Don't get caught up in all the gloom....Just enjoy the moment!!

Cheers Robert
