    I particularly like this bit:
    "Striking, spacious, affordable and with a V6 diesel, the 407 Coupe should cut it"

    "While power is rated at 150kW at 4000rpm, the 2.7-litre HDi (for common-rail direct-injection) unit unleashes 440Nm of torque from just 1000rpm.

    This contrasts to the 3.0-litre V6ís 155kW at 6000rpm and 290Nm of torque at 3750rpm."
    I didnt like this as much...

    On the other hand the HDiís 1724kg kerb weight is around 100kg more than the petrolís; both are upwards of 250kg heavier than the 406 Coupe.

    oh dear....

    What it is not, in any sense, is a driverís car.
    So while I cannot bring myself to condemn it ó for it has helped me through the first of my midlife moments ó if this is what being middle aged is about I want no part in it. Itís what my father would have described as ďa nice car for somebody elseĒ, so Iíll pass, thanks very much. I might limp, creak and crunch, but at least I know Iím alive. Drive one of these and you could never be entirely sure.

    so he loved it....
    For this is one of the most middle-of-the-road, tediously worthy machines ever to describe itself as a coupť. This is Pringle-wearing, bowls-playing, pipe-smoking automotive Ovaltine that could make the most jaded, world-weary correspondent feel like a fresh-fledged teenager by comparison.

    Youíd need to drive off Eastbourne pier before you got a kick out of driving this one
