    New 307 Website

    I've decided to launch my website to the internet public.

    Visit <a href="http://users.bigpond.net.au/skystar/peugeot307/" target="_blank">The Peugeot 307 Website</a>.

    I've found since looking at cars, that Peugeot gives hardly any info on anything out there, so I've done my best to put as much info that I know about the car. In the near future I'd like to add a problems page, and perhaps a forum.

    There are pics of the baby frog there.

    I'd appreciate any comments you have.

    Cheers,

    Justin

    Ahh, thanks for that.

    See how special Aussiefrogs is,

    it's the only forum link on the page

    Do the images on the "my car" page take too long to load up?

    Cheers,

    Justin

    Justin,

    Well done, you have been busy behind the scenes wink Excellent informative site, very wordy but all good stuff.

    Pics don't take long at all at the momement, I'm with Optus cable, capped at 3gig download, just noticed I'm at 80% already this month, looks like I might have to get used to limited speed of 28k for balance of month

    Keep adding to your site, it will become a great resource cheers!

    Cheers

    Wow, that's a great site, congratulations -- it must have been a lot of work! Huge amounts of ACTUAL CONTENT which is good Must remember to goof off work sometime next week and read it all tongue

    Along similar lines, amongst us all, there's a fair bit of 306 knowledge as well .. maybe it'd be worthwile for a few of us to "pull the finger out" and immortalise some of that on a website too

    Great site. My only recommendation is to mirror the articles from the other sites, rather then linking to them. You never know how long those articles will stay up on the other sites, and it'd be a shame to lose the articles to the never ever...

    Thanks for the comments guys,

    The mirroring of articles seems like a good idea, but I don't know if I have the space.

    Some of them seem pretty safe like drive.com.au articles, and well some of those articles I don't mind losing (have a look at the eauto.com.au one; hell, the 307's a piece of crap because it doesn't advance the 306's handling!!!)

    Last time I checked, most cars today still can't match a 306!

    Cheers,

    Site's been updated with more information, plenty of stats and specs.

    A lot of weird & wonderful things there now, and it's been visually improved.

    Great site!!

    Being on a small and slow 56K connection the pictures are fine.

    It is nice to see that there is a website that actually contains the technical info for the car.

    Now you know you've made it into the top list of sites. Your in my Fav's list

    nel,

    I'm not really sure about alarms for the 307, there is a Peugeot one available, which is designed to integrate into the multiplexed system - it'll blend in well too, the switch will occupy one of the blanks at the top of the centre console (ie. near the lock switch).

    The system monitors the doors & boot, and has a sensor to detect movement in the car.

    Just out of interest, the 307's computer records all break in attempts, and stealing parts isn't of much use, as they are taught to work in conjunction with the parts of the 'mother' car.

    The alarm's $627 btw.

    crosspug, thanks for the comments It's always nice knowing that I've done something good - if you went and tried to look for quality Pug info, you'd think 99% of Pug owners were computer illiterate - there's just nothing much out there, especially if you're driving a newer model.

    Cheers,

    Justin

    Thanks Justin,

    I will try to find out if anymore alarms work fine on the 307 before the first service.

    Hi Justin,

    You mentioned Automatic Boot Locking in your website...

    Nel, depending on where you live. I'd recommend speaking to Arthur at Metrosound (tell him Lincoln sent you). I've used Arthur for years for my stereo needs and they do a lot of the top installs...Kosta Tsuzyu's recent Bentley purchase, for example. Have a chat to him about alarms and he cant tell you how much and how good the after markets are. The 307 is fairly new, but with Alec Mildren just down the road, he may have worked on some already.

    The boot is automatically locked at 10km/h, and will remain locked until someone opens a side door from inside.

    It seems doesn't work on my car.
    My gf still can open the door from outside.
    Unless I press the lock button on the centre console.

    No deadlocking for Australian vehicles, although it was initially put as being standard in the early press material.

    Hi Justin

    Apart from the common front passenger footwell trim problem and poor FM reception, so far I have two problems on my 02' built 307xse...

    They are...

    1. Central console rattles, near the CD player.
    2. The car "shakes" when idle. (Yes I'd use the word "shake", feels like the engine cutting-out).

    Do you experience the same thing?

    The site's been updated again,

    <a href="http://users.bigpond.net.au/skystar/peugeot307/" target="_blank">http://users.bigpond.net.au/skystar/peugeot307/</a>

    I suggest going to the news page, and look at the latest 307 thing - you'll notice a funny oversight by Peugeot.

    You might also be interested to look at the Specifications page, probably the most detailed out on the web. There's new torque curves for the 2.0 motors.

    A review of the 307 2.0 16V was released here today, <a href="http://www.autoweb.com.au/A_6070/newcartest.html" target="_blank">http://www.autoweb.com.au/A_6070/newcartest.html</a>

    It looks like this engine issue has been noticed by others, and I have heard of this rough idle from another 307 driver on this forum.

    The 1.6 seems smoother at idle, but if you listen to it, has a slightly agricultural sound at idle. It sound totally different to the 1.6 in the 206 though - noisy bugger that is!

    Cheers,

    Justin

    My 306 GTI6 can shake as well, to the point where it feels like it's going to stall. I just put up with it...it comes and goes with the car's mood.

    Yeah, but it's a bit embarassing when you haven't bought a Lada

    What's the reason? Does it happen when the car is idling very slowly?

    This is the same engine in a car that people will pay about $45k on the road, I'd be pretty dissapointed if it was doing the "cha cha cha" in the engine bay.

    I've just started a discussion group for the 307. peugeot-307: The Peugeot 307 Mailing List can be found <a href="http://autos.groups.yahoo.com/group/peugeot-307/" target="_blank">here</a>. The website's been crying out for some form of discussion medium, and I've been inspired by the 206 GTi list.

    In other news, the <a href="http://users.bigpond.net.au/skystar/peugeot307/" target="_blank">website</a> has been updated with more problems and content. There are some interesting sales stats for Peugeot in Australia and news.

    307 owners will be glad to hear that apparently the manufacturer of the COM2000 stalk has gone bust!

    Cheers,

    Justin
