Exclamation New or old? That sir, is the question!

I just been glancing over the user forums pics of their cars and i see most of you have either new or within 5 years old Peugeots.

My question is, and no offence, but i really prefer the older style Peugeots personally.

I like the old 305/205 and personally, i have the Quiksilver 206sw as to me, its a car you dont see everyday and its got "Personality" and "Character" which i dont think you get on "New" cars.

Perhaps we should have a old school chat room that for us old codgers!

And going back to the older Peugeots its also good to see that the owners have cared for them and kept them on the roadinstead of chopping them in every 3 years or scrap it after 10!

Ok my morning moan is over and now i feel better

Think youíll find a few still here on the forum and thats the fun thing all kinds of models each with its own characteristics

Not a 5 series but just been out this morning in a 406 estate 15 years old still going well though itís tricky finding some parts

Could be an idea having a section that lists places you can get spares from and here in Teesside it would not be simple finding a welder if needed one thing for certain a lot less complicated than the newer models and in my opinion the older models have much better heaters

Enjoy the group

Very few posts here for the best car Peugeot ever made - the 504.
With the 403B, 205, and 404 these were I think the best four models to come from the Peugeot stable.
Just my opinion which is of course absolutely right.
Unless of course you think differently?.

The 3008 seems to be the busiest forum, mainly from negative posts though.

Problem is for the 504 and 505 there are very few left in the uk my last 3 505s went to africa to live out the rest of their life as taxis

The 505 was the last REAL peugeot in my opinion and although 205s 405s etc were good they were nowhere near as bombproof as the 404 504 604 505 etc

306 was ok
309 was a relic of the talbot era
406 was ok but not as good as 405

Then we get to the 07 cars 307 average 407 807 average 607 s an aquired taste 207 not exactly well built or anything like bombproof

Basically they have as top gear rightly said spent the last 10 years building rubbish cars for average drivers but im not sure the latest batch of products is really going to help ok they are fancy with lots of cool design and gadgets but peugeot and fancy have never gone well together

I tend to have one of each, old and new! Old banger for me and a newer family wagon. Anything from the x06 range is my choice, preferably with the 1.9td. Although the 8v 2.0hdi engine has proved very reliable in my experience too.
