    Any reason why these weren't available here? I'm sure it's got more style than a Kia Carnival...

    Yep, the new 807 looks ok for a very large van I guess. However, its sister car - the Citroen C8 looks better. And of course, the new Renault Espace is the ultimate in family transport .

    "All of its cars from the 1.1 litre 205 through the ugly duckling 309 to the 2.2 litre 505 GTi had a rightness and a righteousness about them that turned every humdrum drive into a journey. Someone, I once wrote, in the bowels of Peugeot understands handling and how a chassis should feel." - Jeremy Clarkson

    Yep, saw it in Wollongong yesterday (Sat 20/3/4) arvo. I didn't have the opportunity to stop it and sticker slap, but I nearly cricked my neck trying to make sure I was right.

    the first time i saw it i had to look twice just to make sure i wasn't seeing things

    do the nuns still own it or has it passed on to new owners now ?

    In a certain sense, it's a Euro equivalent to our badge engineering exercises - they all really look very similar (where as a 306 and Xsara look quite different, 407 & C5, etc). Remember Camry and Apollo, Corolla and Nova, etc.

    I would love to see an 807, Espace or C8 on a skidpan or racing around a track

    The Renault Espace is definitely the pick of the frog MPV's

    Until one rolls ... vans and 4WD's* don't handle like cars, and people still think they do .

    * OK Porsche makes a 4WD that is better them most cars (but not so good a 4WD), not may people have a spare $200,000 lying around.
