Why would you want to go from your Audi to a Peugeot?

Interesting, I genuinely wouldn't have thought that of Audi. All the vag drivers I know swear by them. I've had my 208 for 2 months and it's been in for 5 items and going in again on Tuesday because Peugeot really don't know how to do imitation iPads or software, (or gearboxes although that hasn't failed, it's just crap!).

I had a Polo before this on an 11 plate. Front shock went after 6 months and the iPod connector that bought as an option repeatedly wouldn't work.
German doesn't mean reliable

Awesome, I love it. I've always loved French cars, but this is my first one. I definitely prefer it to my Cooper S, it seems to get the balance of fast and every day practicality. The boot is less pathetic!

Obviously there are a few niggles, but is haven't had a car that's been 100% perfect. I had to get part of the clutch pedal replaced because it was squeaking, but it was resolved in a couple of hours. The car makes me smile every time I get in it and I just end up driving it round all the time for no reason.
