Hi Dan ... Been in work all day so not really played with it yet but the 50 miles I've done commuting was excellent.
Averaged over 64 MPG and never went below 75-80 on the 40 or so miles of motorway driving in that. I would also say that the drive is actually better than the RCZ we part exchanged .. Obviously not the power of the RCZ but smoother on the motorway and very quiet .
I'll post a full review when I get chance
Hi ... There both 1.4 HDI 70 BHP Active models but there really nippy (0-60 in the brochure say 14 seconds but I recon it's nearer to 10)
Mines the black one but we'll swop and change to keep the mileage about the same
Will feel nimbler and nippy as the 208 is condsiderable lighter than the 207 - hoping the 156thp will be nice to drive as a result of the lighter setup, as long as suspension is set up to match the engine.
Ya to'reet mon!? lol
No, not seen you out an about...i unfortunately drive a 206 (however i love her to bits) but looking forwards to trading it in spring for the 208
Which dealership did you use by the way? And how was the experience...
And of course im a warriors fan haha - cherry and whites forever
Right .. Even though we have Stoneacre in Wigan I wouldn't go anywhere near them ( really bad salespeople and there service department is a joke )
For the past 5 years we've used Perrys of Bolton and I really can't fault them. We always have the same salesman ( Stuart Browne ) We've had 6 cars off him in this time , a 207 , 207cc , 308 , RCZ and now the two 208's and he always looks after us. Also the service department are spot on .... Graham and Sammy have been there years as have most of the staff which to me tells you there a pretty good company.
When you are thinking of changing let me know and I'll call Stuart .. He always looks after friends I send over to him.
Thanks Yes i agree totally with you! Stoneacre are shocking. Had four tyres put on through them and they totally wrecked my alloys...ended up having them all refurbed but at a cost of argueing and upset seeing as its my first car
Thanks tho for your overview of Perrys, they sound like someone you can trust -
I shall keep you in mind thankyou!
Haa no probs...i know it well! I play in Pemberton Brass Band on tunstall lane lol small world! And also its where my brother who works as halfords sends people for those sorts of things now autocentre has gone.
Where abouts you live then? Im over near mesnes park
Finally got the new wheels on my GT line, Fox Racing FX004, from Wheelbase in Oldham in and out in less than 1 hour with the tyres swapped over, same size/offset as standard but in my opinion, a lot better looking !
