Hi Guys

I'm at the moment looking for a 2.7 V6 HDi 407 Coupe but i'm getting conflicting information between the shoddy DVLA and motor traders?

DVLA's new crappy online system tells me it costs £485 a year to tax the above model, but one motor trader is telling me £285 a year and another is telling me £485!! :confused:

Can anyone on here confirm how much it is to tax a 2.7 V6 HDi 407 coupe please?

I was going to go for a 2.7 V6 HDi 407sw but decided not to because of the £485 price tag!

Many thanks :thumb:

It is more likely to be the higher amount DVLA should be right :)
That's the confusing part, a couple of months ago when i was looking DVLA had the system where you put the reg in then it tells you how much it was and how much tax the vehicle had - now its almost like a guesstimate!

I've looked at 2 coupes today, one an 08 and one an 09 - the 08 comes out at £485 and the 09 comes out at £285?

Confused.com! :confused:

hi, my 07 plate 2.7 v6 is £485 per yr, the 55 plate (only) is £285 per yr as it come out before the tax groups went up. the 09 onwards i believe is the 3.0 v6 hdi is the lower group onwards.

I realise now that from the 23rd March 2006, all 2.7 V6 HDi coupe's are £485 a year to tax.

I have seen a 09 plate 2.7 HDi coupe and that is £285? Shame though as its 450 miles away from me! :(

My '58 plate Coupe 2.7Hdi is an early 2009 car and £285 to tax. I know £200 quid is a lot of wonga, but £3.8/week wouldn't put me off owning one of these great cars.

Thanks for your reply Ian, I'm going to try and hold out for a later Coupe ;)

I've had mine for 7 months now, as I said a '58 plate 2.7Hdi, bought with 35k on the clock from an independant non-peugeot dealer. Paid £7k for the car which is in mint condtion, the only fault has been a faulty air con condenser fixed under warranty, that would have been £110 parts and £250 labour from an air-con specialist, as the front bumber has to come off.

It could be done as a DIY fix but would require a coolant re-fill.

The latest 3.0lt models are gorgeous, but like hens teeth to find. Good luck with your search.

3.0lt? Are these petrol or diesel?

Thanks again :thumb:

I was referring to the 3.0lt Hdi Coupe, probably only built/imported for one year just before they phased them out. More power, better fuel consumption, only a few optional extra's, a well spec'ed car, look great in black with the light grey (white'ish) interior. Full sports spec. I looked for a long time but the 2.7Hdi I bought was too good to refuse. :)

Happy hunting. Ian
