    The new shape looks good in white.

    Welcome to the world of HDi. How do you like all the power at such low revs ?

    Wha shocks me is how nobody mentions how much freakin' ROOM is in these 308s.
    (Touring Wagon I mean)

    We're Musicians and needed, above all else, S P A C E.

    No other car in it's class has more room (that I have found) - Don't forget, the seats come out individually and that leaves a Cavernous area that no other wagon can seem to match.....

    Don't the new 308s have a HDi badge on them?


    Cant recall too many negative articles about the 308. One drive and I couldn't get mine quick enough

    The 308 looks great Paul. I like the way the badging and trim is minimal.
    Try the Gillies Range road if you l like twisty roads, but keep an eye on your rear vision mirrors for a blue/grey 205 GTi Mi16.

    Thanks all - btw the mags are a $400 option! Really cheap - great wheels and handle like a glove!

    Home now - here's the trip summary! Awesome fuel consumption especially when 85% of it was at 135 - 145 km/h
