    Default Hello from new member

    Hi everyone, I have recently bought a Peugeot 207 Le Mans hdi and thought it would be a good idea to join this forum.
    I知 based in South Australia and this is my first ever French car.
    Looks like a lot of useful info on here and I知 sure I値l have plenty of questions for you all.

    Welcome to AF. That's a distinctive car, there weren't too many released.

    I'll start the comments by saying that the 1.6 HDI engine will run a very long time if correctly lubricated, and can be a headache if not. Change the oil strictly by the book or more frequently, and use only very low ash C2 grade synthetic oil. Failure to do this can clag up the engine, stuff the turbo and clog the particle filter. AF has many tales on this.

    Quality service parts and filters for French cars can be quite economical. Look up such as index. Couriers are no more than a day away.

    Howdy David. Nice car; I haven't seen one on the road. This forum is almost essential for the Aussie French car owner, to find good mechanics, parts sources and good practical info you struggle to get elsewhere.

    I bought one new in Perth and it has served my family well coming up ten years old now.

    My daughter will never let it be sold. When she was fourteen she had a brochure photo of 207 on her bedroom wall!

    Welcolm and a lot of help here if needed.
