    Default Low 407

    Its been a while since i last posted. New job (a year ago) now back at a Peugeot dealer and off the tools (during the week). My old employers in albury let me know of a 407 HDi touring that was for sale. When this car was new i PD'd it, fitted the accessories and serviced it until i left in 2010. So i bought it and drove it to melbourne....with a severly blocked particle filter.... then another 407 with a dropped cam belt came up for sale at work so i bought it too. Now i have 2 407s in the drive. I have a work supplied Peugeot (model varies month to month - currently its a 308 allure hatch) and a 4008 (don't laugh) that i bought a year ago. The 407 will become my nice car that I'll use for my frequent interstate trips. Black interior with a few mods, slightly lowered and on coupe wheels and green wrap. I blame BOWIE for this project - thanks man

    All interior electric controls (radio/climate control/cluster/window switches etc) have been dissasembled and replacement SMD LEDs ordered. Most will be white except for the odd blue, red and maybe a few green....still deciding on wether the green will make it in.....

    Hang on ... back up a bit .... Did you say you "lowered" a 407 :eek Do you fill it from jerry cans now because it can't drive over the gutter into any petrol station I'm guessing you park it on the street as it can't go up your drive any longer

    2 of these LEDs into the boot. 1 in the tailgate and one in the LH side of the boot.

    The reading lights for rear seats are a different style of T10 LED and the lights in the base of all 4 doors is yet another style of T10 LED.
