    The new Peugeot 407

    I've been looking to replace my car for a while now, but I just wasn't sure which one to pick. That's until I've seen the new 407. I'm getting it sometime in octomber, and it will definetly have a carputer.
    So what do you think of it? I'm looking forword to reading your opinions.

    you might want to research how that onboard navigation works. Looks like a nice car though. I don't know too much about Peugeots since we don't have them in the states.

    Thing about new Peugeots is they have a CAN or VAN setup (not sure which). It means that all the electronics in the car are interlinked etc. So, for example, when you replace your head unit or something you need to do some minor rewiring to get the new one to work...

    Talk to the services guy at your local dealer about it, he'll be able to let you know whats possible and whats not with and without major work.

    Technically it should also mean that with enough info you could build an interface to your carputer and control virtually all of your car from it...

    Oh, I can't wait 'til octomber. I'll definetly go with that interior color; I think it's the best looking colour for the inside. Threre would be a little something I don't like: I think it has too many buttons, but hey that's just my opinion; I'm sure I'll get past that.
