  1. Nice one, always good to hear older and leggier bugs passing with flying colours.
  2. I fitted an underseat sub and bought some sticky velcro/hook&loop tape, used the 'hook' part only stuck to sub underside thus using original carpet under driver seat as the 'loop' part. I did it as I didn't want to drill any fixing holes for sub under the seat. Did this few years ago and it hasn't moved at all.

    Clock display

    Agree, is a bit poor and if it not configurable then even worse, it just another distraction behind the wheel that not needed, do car manufacturers not do focus groups anymore to pick these things up, it's a simple clock for goodness sake! We got a early Pug 108, my sister not mentioned it, but will have a double check at the weekend.
  4. Nice one, welcome to the ST club, you will enjoy that now that Ford taking the ST brand seriously, my old Mondeo is from a time when they weren't, but still enjoy mine.
  5. Just my 2p worth, I got a Bosch S4 in our 107 currently, think that is over 5 years old and still working ok, had few other Bosch batteries over the years in various vehicles usually S5 and had 8 years and (6 years and counting), so worth considering imo.
  6. Nice to see versions on a theme, so you know I'm Steve107 on the other site, as said not my idea, think it came from '107oc' site I member of many years ago, which now long gone. Thanks for the mention in dispatches, Agent Orange.

    Changes ahead

    Interesting news, car production and manufacturer tie ups so fluid nowadays, what would been shocking few years ago is now common place. When we got our 107 all those years ago, the Toyota connection was a reassuring factor, so be interested to see what happens with PSA / GM groups next small car offering.
  8. Thanks for posting, always helpful to hear other peeps success stories. I have heard a few people who had airbag issues related to underseat connectors and clock spring, but not heard the ECU one before, but I have now, so thanks again.
  9. Glad you got it sorted, and well done for holding your nerve, as you say these things take a while to sort out, but you get there in the end.
  10. I fitted these to our Pug 107, so sort of related, I bought some LED light strips with sticky backing and attached them under dash. I traced interior light wiring, on 107 removing A pillar trim on drivers side gave good access and tapped into that. Did this many years ago, so cannot remember exactly, but think I only used live feed from interior light and then earthed to interior light door courtesy switch, so they come on/off with that.
  11. My sister has a 108 and the fabric luggage cover is neat design, but useless for storage, so agree only really for hiding boot contents. The plastic clips holding it on look flimsy so liable to break, so glad they designed it like they did cos wouldn't want take it off too often.

    Memory Lane

    My first car was a Vauxhall Chevette 2 door saloon, nice car that, top speed 88mph iirc, remember I'd saved £1k for my first car, but back in mid-80s they all rust buckets for that money, so Mum lent me bit more, for 'decent' car. It was good, reliable car for me, but was bit noisy at motorway speeds. Funny you mention Vauxhall Victor, my Dad had an estate version in seventies, I remember the black plastic seats used to burn my legs when I was a nipper in summer and remember he rigged up a Roberts radio with car adapter so we could have some tunes. Just checked internet and his was FD series.
  13. Depends what type car buyer you are, some peeps like to change cars often but we tend keeps ours quite a while, had our Peugeot 107 from new for 10 years now and it been great car, very reliable and cheap to run, seeing all those 'Toyota' stickers under the bonnet years ago was a major factor in buying the car and that faith has been repaid, I'm happy to report and like you we do lowish mileage, so much so my sister got a Peugeot 108 (1.0 of course!) last year, that was a 3 year old car, had that a year, it had some warranty issues that needed doing, dealer sorted them without issue, but it also been very reliable and big improvement on our 107. A new 108 wasn't an option for us as prices moved on alot and sister had only certain budget, but a used 108 didn't worry me cos our 107 been so good. All I would say is it about timing or maybe luck, cos when we got our 107 all those years ago, we got a great deal on a new car, discount made it cheaper than year old version and with the 108 we got 0% interest deal as sister had saved decent down payment, so she took it, but this year noticed her Peugeot dealer not been offering 0% interest at all.
  14. As zuh says on early cars the water pump was an issue, they failed at varying mileages, so maybe you been lucky so far, but i'd be getting those problems done, main dealer prices are always going be more, so as said a recommeded independant could be way to go.
  15. Yep, our 107 hazard switch cracked as well, a common problem, like the vent surrounds, did those red and door pulls, leccy switch surrounds on ours red, just the centre console, which seen some peeps do red to copy your XS's version, just bit OTT for me. From the pics removing the strips looks like paint blended/polished in nicely, red always an iffy colour with the weather elements, and considering the previous owner the paint has come out a treat!
