Hi
I am looking ofr an estate and like the 407 as its good value for money, the 3.0 v6 executive would be my favored choice, has anyone had experience with these, there seems to be none available? and also does anyone know the timing belt interval?

Thanks

Are you after the diesel or petrol?
The most most common SW as they are known will be the 2.0HDi engine. Its what most company cars would of had and also what most private buyerswould have bought. You might get lucky and find the 3.0, there is a couple of them around but not many at all.
You have a few choices of trim, from 'S' spec, which is base model, then 'SE' which is the most common, you also have zenith, sport and executive model too, i believe executive is the highest spec, with leather, parkin sensors and sat nav etc.

Have a read up on the general problems with the 407's, they are well documented in the 407 section on here.

thanks for that to be honest it would be the 3.0 executive automatic i would be looking for , preferably with low miles, im probably expecting too much.

I have never seen a 3.0 sw, but I'd get a 2.7 V6 HDi sw instead. This would be a GT or an executive, they are much of a muchness, its the same spec.

204 bhp, auto only and its a Ford development also used in the Jaguar S-Type and LR discovery 3 etc.

Bit cheaper to run than a petrol V6, but that would be ofset by the £265 tax...






For 6 months :eek:

£495 for 12 months. My 2.0 HDi is £175. There is a 170bhp 2.2 HDi aswell, and getting a GT or executive is easy enough :thumb:

I have managed to track down a 3.0 executive 6 speed auto petrol, car seems immaculate with 62000 miles and full peugeot history, it's a nice light blue metallic with black leather so sounds good, i can get it for £3500 with years mot and 6 months tax, which doesn't sound bad as there is no others I can find

From those pics it looks in good condition. The centre display screen could start fadin when it is hot, the fix its a straight swap out for a new one at around £100, well documented on here.
They look like the solid centred 16" wheels but could be 17"s, gettin the wheels balanced can be an issue but ring round, there is a few garages that can do it now.
Nice colour, same as mine!!
You have the HID headlights, the lamps/bulbs can cost around £80 a pair to replace, but they last a very long time so not really an issue.

Did you buy there car or still decidin??

It has the 17" alloy wheels , what is the problem with balancing them? Also the display looks a bit faded so could need replaced, does this need programmed?

Still deciding what my best option is

if they are the solid centered type the wheels need boltin to a flange to get them balanced, i know of only a handfull of little tyre garages that have the equipment. Its not really a problem, you just have to do your research.
As for the screen, there is a lad on here sellin them, you give him your vin and he programs the screen so it will work in your car. Its a very straight forward and easy fix.
Most problems you will encounter with a 407 you can tackle yourself, so dont be too alarmed.
Also if you have a look on the peugeot planet map for someone near you or near the car's location they can plug in PP2000 (peugeots own diagnostics) and see if the car you are wanting to buy has any faults before you hand over any cash. This i would advise

Says quasar 17. Pouces ?

What would that mean, im assuming its the wheels?

the 3.0 seems to be very rare and not many about, is there a reason for this?

Thanks
