    I think it has been confirmed that silvery stuff won't be in the production car.

    From what I understand, everything forward of the A pillar is what is in the actual 407 sedan/wagon etc.

    The French just can't design bodies can they. Looks like commitee crap doesn't it. Trying too hard to be too French; too clever and unique. Interiors are nice though.
    Probably a Frenchman did the DS and Clio, C3 and the odd other pretty car, but the nice ones were mostly Pugs designed by Italians weren't they?

    Actually looking at the interiors again, they are crap too, except the C2 which I like a lot. ANd its the real thing isn't it? i.e. as it is or will be sold.

    The C2 shown, interior and exterior is the real thing. It's supposedly coming out here as well in VTR spec.

    The C2 looks great. Should do well against the Mazda 2 and Honda Jazz, if the pricing is right.

    The 407 is really nice, but that interior dead looks like it was fitted out by some American rap star. (Actually now that I mention it, not enough gold for that wink )

    And the driver of that Renault Bebop has just cost themselves $170 (or however much it is, I've never been pinged) and a few points off their licence whip

    i love the interior of the Airlounge. You can see a common trait amongst most cars there, the TV that raises out from the dash, instead of having a big part of your console taken up perminatly. Looks like the way thats going...

    I like the wheels on the Citroen and thats about it!
    The Be Bop looks great from the back, but what I can see from the front looks crap!
    The 407 looks great!
    And I love the C2!

    cheers! Cheers Renomad
