Hi all, have a 208 1.6 THP on order to replace my wife's 207 GTi. Build date was 18/7/12 so just got to wait for further news from the dealer although expecting to wait till september for 62 plate.

Update today received from dealership that build date has been put back a week to tomorrow. Cant remember how long it usually takes from build date to delivery.

@ Dan - yes allways was intention for it to be 62 plate but was hoping for early Sept as MOT will be due on current car before end of spetember :-(
@ punter - there are several variations of the THP engine in a variety of cars at different spec levels not sure what spec it is inDS3 - current car is 207 with 175bhp - this one in the 208 is 156bhp. There is also a 200+ that is in the RCZ and is likely to be in the 208 GTi if it is ever released. Re discount did not appear that there was much available on the 208as a new modelso no not a lot - dealer has always been fair to us in the past as we have had several cars from them and we did get a good discount of list price when we bought the current 207 but there were not prepared to move very far. Also checked out the car magazines, cant remember which, possible what car - where they list all new cars and the MRP and the expected price that you should look to get a dealer and there was very little discount showing on that.

Update received today and seems third tme was lucky

After being given our third build date it appears they have this time completed and our car is now waiting at Calais to be shipped over to the UK


Dealer is going to check again on Monday to see if it has arrived in UK and keep chasing to make sure it gets here asap so hopefully it will be with us in a couple of weeks.
