mypicturedlifea photographic record of my life

Peugeot 406 Coupe 3.0

This is one of my all time favourite cars.

It is a beautiful looking car, particularly from the side.

It was a smooth riding (if a little softly sprung) car that performed quite well, and was economical on fuel.

One day, one of the front springs snapped, dropping the car on to the wheel and rendering it undriveable.

Rather than replacing the spring with an original, I decided to replace all the shock absorbers and also replace all springs with lowering springs which was a huge mistake.

Following this, the car became very skittish and rough riding which totally spoilt it.

This led to me selling it on.
