If the car is driving ok and it starts ok then I wouldn't be worrying about it.

Ok, now we have some info into the problem. You failed to give any of it first post.
What year model is your 307?
what mileage?

Ok, 54 plate means nothing to me. Based in Southern Ireland.
Has the fuel filter been changed in the last 40k mls?
What is your fuel like?

Its possible. It could be anything. Get a leakoff test done on the injectors, start there.
As you said there are no fault codes.

Is the battery strong?

load test the battery and/or check it's voltage while cranking.
Is it Bosch or Siemens injection? IIRC the Siemens doesn't have an in-tank pump so air leaks/ loss of prime are possible, yes.

Replacing the leak off pipes will do nothing. They will only be a problem if they are leaking.

Thats absolute rubbish. Thats impossible. Did you get a leak off test done on the injectors.
