Hey all, picked up my 2019 508sw GT Line today after waiting nearly 2 months due to HGV driver shortage for delivery and also DVLA delays in taking a private plate off my old car! Very pleased with it although I've only driven about 40 miles or so at the moment. I've come from a 3.0l Supercharged Jag XE so it's definitely different but that's not necessarily a bad thing :LOL:

A few quick questions I have if possible, firstly the SOS button is flashing red?

When I had cruise set up to 80mph, the car kept flashing "<-- MEM" when I pressed the memory button on the cruise stalk, it asked me to press again to confirm and then it dropped my cruise speed down to 70mph? What's that about?!

Finally, I pulled into a space in the supermarket and just as I was coming to a stop I got a warning about automatic braking unavailable or something? Didn't quite catch it before it went off, the symbol that appeared was almost far right of the dash.

Finally finally, this one isn't really a question but more of a point.... how poor is the reverse camera quality?! :ROFLMAO: Although I didn't even have one in my old car so it's still an upgrade!

Sorry about all of the questions but just trying to figure everything out! I really do like the car from the short amount of time that I've had it and I have to admit that it looks just fantastic, even rivals my XE for the looking back after parking up :LOL:

A few quick questions I have if possible, how do you know when the lane assist is on and recognised the lanes? In my old car it would have a symbol which let you know when it had picked up the lanes so I was wondering if the 508 had something similar? I wandered over some lines on purpose (obviously safely when I had chance) and nothing happened.

Rightmost switch on dash (the one nearest the door, RHD.) this switches lane deviation on/off. When off displays orange on dash. This nudges the steering wheel when you cross a lane line, unless you are signalling.
When cruise is active and the leftmost switch of the 4 is on, the steering wheel symbol lights. Rotate the dashboard display roller to display ‘drive assist’ and you will see the lane markings around the car and when it is capable of keeping the car within the lane.

The SOS button is flashing red?
Sorry don’t know, but sounds like this function is working. Hold it in and it should call the Peugeot help desk to ask them. Sounds like a call has been made.

When in cruise mode and you pass a speed limit sign e.g. 70 the symbol indicate that you can change the currently set cruise speed to that of the displayed limit. Pressing the mem button once transfers it to be set and pressing it a second time confirms it and sets the cruise limit accordingly. The MEM button is the bottom button on the cruise/limit control. In other words entering a new speed sign click the MEM button twice to set a new cruise speed. This works the same when using the limiter instead of cruise.

Finally, I pulled into a space in the supermarket and just as I was coming to a stop I got a warning about automatic braking unavailable or something? Didn't quite catch it before it went off, the symbol that appeared was almost far right of the dash.
This sounds like a braking malfunction if the indication was red and might relate to the SOS light flashing. You need to check this symbol in the handbook.

Hope I’ve helped somewhat.
Enjoy the car.

That's brilliant! Thank you for your response! I've emailed the dealer to see if they have any advice on the SOS button but I didn't actually think about using the button in the car to call Peugeot to see if they can help so that's a good idea!

Just a thought about the auto braking message. Might have been that the car thought you were about to hit something as you drove into the space, rather than a malfunction. The SOS button is more of an emergency assist than a general query (the other Peugeot symbol button) but Templex is right, it does flash when initially pushed so you may be able to reset it.

Congrats on your new 508. SW rocks! Don’t take to me about V5C, my car is a year old, a Peugeot UK car. They lost the V5C on way to my local dealer, Peugeot couldn’t find it after search which took weeks. They apparently sent a V62 with £25, still nothing. I sent a V62 with £25, still nothing. I have a personal number plate still to go. Thats from July. This is a useful link Vehicle registration and V5C certificates (log books) - Contact DVLA - GOV.UK

Here you can find date of latest V5C Get vehicle information from DVLA just checked this morning, still not issued, when I phone DVLA then that’s all they tell you to look at. We are busy, blah, blah.

Congrats,
As far as I know , GT models come with the HD camera resolution unlike entry models named Prime, Allure and so on .In other words when your car somes with the bigger screen it also comes with the better camera set up .
However, I'm not sure whether or not the newest Peugeot 308s III come with the better HD resolution over GT models . Generally, even a W177 Mercedes-Benz A Class models look like offer a better camera resolution over Peugeot 508 II GT or top model

If you're comparing the camera resolution/image quality to that of a '70's porn flick transferred from Betamax to VHS (twice) and viewed through a net curtain then it isn't too bad.

Thanks for the replies all, managed to do some decent mileage in the last 24 hours and I've really enjoyed the car. It has however thrown up a bit of a gremlin in that the front left parking sensor is constantly activated and then after a short while it will say "Parking Assistance System Fault" which itself will disappear after about 20 seconds (the spanner icon disappears along with it), I do wonder if this is linked to the warning that was thrown up whilst I was in the supermarket?

Other than that though and ignoring a couple of "quirks" (cruise control being 1mph off and the analogue speedo being slightly different to the digital, i.e. setting cruise at 80mph the analogue speedo has the icon above 78-79mph :ROFLMAO:) the car is brilliant, I love the way that it looks and drives so I'm very happy with it. I'll be sending it back to the dealer to get the parking sensor sorted but I really do look forward to getting into it and driving it each time.

Re the camera resolution. I have the wider/higher resolution screen on my First Edition SW but can confirm that the camera display is still crap. Just took back a Kia Sportage I had as a courtesy car and its camera was much better (see attached picture). Can't for the life of me understand how Peugeot think it's ok to fit a '90's laptop webcam in a £41k car and think it's satisfactory.
