Hello I bought a new C1 feel which I collect 10 days time it is scarlet red ...I have no extra trim as really just on a budget. The standard wheel trim looks rather boring and was hoping to spice things up a little going for a slightly darker look trim but Im not sure what size trim to shop for. When I Ebay search seems to be all for the pre 2014 model, when I did a compatibility of a set that fit pre 2014 c1 in drop down menu it resulted in telling me the trims wont fit the 2014 beyond mode.

So in short would the trims from the older pre 2014 model fit the newer c1

Don't think so, you probably got 15 inch steel wheels on your Feel. The base model new C1s (Touch) and 108s (Access) have 14 inch wheels then next spec up (Feel/Active) get 15 inch steel wheels.

The original/older pre 2014 models all had 14 inch steel wheels.

We recently got a 108 Active in the family and that has 15 inch steel wheels/trims.

I tried look at images of the wheel it not clear to me if the standard trim can be changed for alternative so you saying its a case of shopping for the universal 15" trim ?

I hope I have better luck with the new model I traded in the 06 C1 for the feel...I had sufferd the ariel leak (fixed) slightly damp rear seat foot well leak which i never sorted only botherd me in winter.
The intermittent indicator stalk rusting which I fixed and more bothersome was the peeling lacquer from both front an rear bumper...
Aprt from that it served well only notched 38000 miles on her average 4000 a yr

Ahh..... seem to be making some headway on Ebay using the search term 15" C1 14 onward trim.... its a bit of a maze but the info was helpful as some say C1 (14on) but are the 14" which are as you say for touch

Yep, assumed you would be looking for 'universal' 15" trims, cos manufacturer trims always tend to be a bit on the boring side.

I was surprised when we got our 108 Active, it had 15" wheels and tyres, maybe bigger rubber helps the more composed ride on newer C1/108 over older C1/107, sure you will be impressed with it, and with Feel spec which similar to our Active spec, got decent 'worth having kit' over the base spec. They have just improved/added alot of small things to make a big improvement, but they had to to keep up with other cars in the market.

Ironically one reasons I not interested in higher spec ones, is the peugeot manufacturer alloys are horrible!, I prefer the Active wheel trims :lol:

What is the suspension like on your 108 I know the earlier 107 c1 at times was like dragging your arse no the road or riding a homemade cart it could be a rough ride...have they improved the suspension at all ?

Oh yes, it alot smoother ride, it does drive alot different because they changed the gearing/ecu so it geared to economy, as others have said our 107 is more 'fun' to drive, but new 108 is still nice to drive.

Have you test driven a new C1 and what engine did you go for 1.0 or 1.2 puretech?

I didnt test drive it no and I got 3 door 1.0 I rare even venture on a duel carriageway if I do it be 20 mile max I mainly just town drive shopping and visits to pals I coped well with the 1.0 for 11 yrs so gatherd why change habit. I know my sale room only had feels and upward in to view any any talk of touch he swiftly tried to push me to feel saying he rare gets touch in ..two quotes he offered 1 was for touch other for a feel... the feel was £350 more then the touch so I think he put carrot in front of me to go for feel and I couldn't refuse

Same as ours, we got the 1.0 and 3 doors as well, it perfectly ok engine to shift our 108 along, it my sister's car so she doesn't got racing about. As you say, I happy to stick with the 1.0 as we had our 107 for 9 years now and it been mechanically perfect.

When we were looking earlier in the year, we looked at new C1s and think they said Feels most popular and also the 108s Peugeot had loads of Actives and above, but didn't see any Access models. Then again for the extra kit you get on the Feel over the Touch it's a no brainer for the price. We only got the 108 cos we preferred look of it compared to newer C1.

I dont have family to cart about and maybe im a born worrier with previous experience of 06 c1 ...but my reasoning was less likely to leak at seals with no rear doors lol
