    Sorry for the late reply to all you guys.

    Ill try to answer most questions in one hit....

    Reason i picked the 307 as a first euro car is because i know some people with various new pugs and i like the look and feel of them all...

    I will keep refering to is as the 307 feline, i just think it sounds better, plus the dealer and people working at peugeot are calling it the same thing.

    I have so far found the clutch a little long to engage in 1st especialy hill starts.

    The previous jap cars i ownes were most recently the mazda sp20 hatch, honda civic, toyota corolla, nissan pulsar.


    ummmm what other questions were there????

    Thanks for all your comments....

    Which dealer did you get it from, if you don't mind me asking?

    I had quite a good look at the one at the Motor Show, which was nicely presented with its leather, though the sticker on the window had somehow robbed it of 12 Nm of torque. Great marketing there, Peugeot

    I find it strange that a dealer and "people working at Peugeot" are referring to it as the Feline, as it's sold and marketed here as the Sport. Seems like a fantastic way of confusing people to me, but then confusing people is not unheard of in the local scene

    I'm sure with practice, the clutch thing will sort itself out - after all, it's going to be just as much clutch pedal travel in any gear, not just first...

    I bought it from Trivett's in Parramatta and they were refering to it as feline/sport. i guess its all the same. The car you would have seen at the motor show is the exact spec as mine (same colour, options ect)

    Don't get me wrong, I think Feline is a much better name than Sport. Maybe they decided Feline was a bit too feminine or something

    I mean after the embarrassment that the Sportivo name is for Toyota, you think Peugeot Oz could do better

    hmm iam not really a fan of any current peugeots, i considered a 306GTi-6 and even more so like the 405mi16 but being front wheel drive was a slight turn off, (would have like to get a 405 mi16 with quadies) instead i went jap crap, bloody least they know how to make nice sporty cars "still" go the 200sx

    I can't understand why people get turned off simply by the front wheel drive factor. You only have to step out of a rear wheel drive Peugeot and into a modern front wheel drive one such as the Mi16/205/306 GTi's etc to realise they are light years ahead. Peugeot are well recognised as making some of the best front wheel drive cars, if not the best in terms of the 05 generation.

    Did you honestly get out of the Mi16 and say to yourself "the 505 handles better"?

    hi 307FELINE,


    congratulations on your new car, and your first peugeot!


    i think the recent update re aesthetics have only enhance the 307's apprearance, positively. i think the front end is well executed, and wow the interior (even if it is just the colour scheme) gives it an air of opulence. seats look unreal, and is the dash sewn leather???

    current frogs :
    '94 s3 alpine 205GTi

    previous frogs:

    '95 306S16

    I noticed a trend from the C4 VTS. The accelerator pedal is not aluminium like the clutch and brake. Looks a bit odd to me.

    One question, though. Is red the only colour the interior comes in, or are there other choices?

    Congratulations on your purchase BTW.

    Hi troy, thanks

    The leather only comes in two colours - red and brown. The leather depends on what colour car you pick. The dealer had a the same car in black with brown leather and it didnt really tickle my fancy, but that just me.

    I have noticed the pedal and cant come up with an answer as to why they would do that.... do you know???

    Hmm I'd prefer the red to brown. It's a nice retro look. I'm not a huge fan of brown interiors.

    I was hoping they would have the leather in a charcoal colour, but it's not the case. Oh Well.

    Not really sure why. I swear I remember the 307 CC Sport have the aluminium accelerator pedal, so I don't see any reason why the 307 Sport/C4 VTS shouldn't have it. Perhaps it's a bit of cost cutting.

    As far as i know its not coming out in any other colours, it would be nice though if they did have at least a black leather choice.

    As for the pedal - if that cost cutting its a very stupid way to save a couple of bucks... im sure they had their reasons

    Congratulations on your purchase and welcome to AussieFrogs. Don't forget to checkout http://autos.groups.yahoo.com/group/peugeot-307/

    I also don't like any of Peugeot's '07 cars but the 307 SW is like a TARDIS so if you are in the need for a European wagon then it would be at the top of the list.

    Yes the 2.2 would be great in the 307 but then 407 sales might suffer.

    nar mate i decided that i could buy another rear wheel drive with more go and that has potential to handle better then the 405mi16 and that is newer ie nissan 200sx (although more expensive) dont get me wrong i like 405's just being young and for some other reason i just want a turbo car to lol. although i have tossed up the idea of buying an older nissan silvia and a 405mi16 as a daily (and still toss it around in my head)

    Hi 307FELINE

    Welcome to
    Very nice car u have there!!!
    Interior Colour looks great...... Wish my XSI had the same engine as U do!!!
    Should wait until more 307 sport members then we should organise a drive day or something!!!
    At first i didnt like the look of the facelifted 307, but now with its new engine, and after a good look at the motor show, i am starting to love it!!!
    Is a pity AUS wont receive any 3 doors!!! Would look great if there is.......
    Just 1 more ques, is the rear lights LED now???

    Cheers
    30780Y
