Two new headlight bulbs this evening (always buy in pairs and replace both and keep the other as a spare)

Cleaned all the inside out on Sunday... would have done the outside, but Peugeot done that for me FOC last week, along with all the work too :thumb:

latest on the warranty issue. The car was bought with credit card for protection. Its been paid off but they have a duty under section 75 consumer credit act to sort it out. They rang today, I have to take the car back to the dealer (who fraudulently sold me a 3 month warranty and never registered it with the warranty company)for new dmf and clutch, and cooling fan, he is going to ring me today, hasn't. I have to give him the chance to fix it (bodge) and i must be happy with the repair, cant see inside the bell housing. once happy with the bodge oh sorry repair, the card company will reimburse me for all those jobs ive been doing over the last 3 months, about £900 worth of parts but nowt for my labour. Well progress I guess, what do you say?

The best of it is it drove OK and passed inspection before money changed hands. Looked a good buy with only 64,000 on the clock but just shows how wrong you can be. Am I glad i got credit card cover, told them i was going to use the card and they said OK so covered. Just as well as the warranty never materialised. My missus said use the card, she had 6th sense i think
I must say its a brilliant drive, comfortable, quiet, smooth, I like the looks and fuel economy and the toys, always get a kick form the c control. I will keep it regardless, well its almost new now.

I still haven't told mine that IT is going to go soon, in fact it should have been today, so riding the fuel light until I get the A4. Haven't even graced this one with a name.

Anyway, Since I got mine I replaced the wipers and did footwell lights (And interior lights).

I know this is in the 407 part but after John replied I thought "why not eh?"
