Meet our 107....or as SWMBO calls it....Spuggy.

Owned since 2009 and 20k miles...now it's on approx 89k.

Seems like a part of the family now. She won't part with it....

One clutch at 62k miles.

Tyres

Servicing.

A rear wheel hub assembly at some point.

Many (3-4?) exhaust back boxes until i bought a full kit from Ebay (german) which has been much better (although it's partly lost the 'rasp' from before)

Extras - glovebox lid and Sborne Peugeot alloys which still clean up really well.

Generally averages low 50's mpg. Mid 40s in winter. All time best on a full tank of 68.6mpg

Great little thing thats served us well. Long may it continue.


Balls. Cant get pic to display properly.

You need to take the IMG hosting URL, not the direct link, from Photobucket to get it to display. This one:

Direct link in [img] [*/img] (remove the *) tags also works.

I have edited to make it work for you :)

Nice clean looking motor, I guess you are keeping it standard?

Ahh, thank you for fixing that! Brilliant.

Thanks for the tips. I tried quite a few things but none of them must have been that way! Thanks again.

Yes, mainly standard. The wheels were only put on last year. A colleague had a 2008 107 3dr that he was selling and I jokingly.asked if he wanted to swap the steelies+wheeltrims for the alloys and he said yes! Result. They've freshened up the looks a bit.
I also fitted a rev counter from a very broken 107 which came in as a px at work.

Good to see another long termer, nice looking car, alloys suit the car nicely, love how you got them, if you don't ask you don't get.

Thank you.

Yes! I just though...well i'll ask!

We also got a glovebox lid asap after purchase. Totally daft not to have a glovebox, small though it is!

These were thought out so well, werent they. Considering how small a car they are, they are quite spacious inside. I'm 6ft 2 and i can sit behind myself (if you see what i mean) quite comfortably. i can't do that in a lot of bigger cars. I suppose the offset of that is the very small boot with tight opening. We actually rarely use the boot as it 's just a bit of a pain really! 5drs is great in that regard
We have two kinds now, 7 and 1 and we can all get in fine if we need to use this car (other car is a C3 Picasso)

Yep, annoying not having a glovebox, but my ironically my Mum's old base model Ford Escort Mk2 didn't even have a shelf on the passenger side :lol: , my dear old Dad had to make one, so in some ways the 107 was a step up! Annoyingly, my sister's 108 has a proper glovebox, so there as been progress, just one of the little niggles they sorted with the newer 108.

We got a 3 door, so although the boot is small, I often just pop the odd bag onto back seats through rear hatch. Our 107 is really my Mum's car , so I thought having a light glass hatch would be easier for her, and it has been.

Agree about the back seats, we rarely use ours, but surprisingly spacious in the back when we do, when we got ours the Fiat 500 was just coming out, so went have a look, but I found it bit claustrophobic in the back seats, so ended up the the magnificent 107!

Exactly,agreed!
Agree with the 108 comments. I've not driven a 108 but have driven many current C1s and can see where they've really moved the game on - BUT! Whilst it's 'better' in many ways... i do wonder if they've lost a bit of the go-kart feel and basic no nonsense feel.
ALSO! They're worsened the rear leg space noticably by fitting nicer, thicker, chunkier front seats!
