and I forgot to rave about the joy of the automatic windscreen wipers which I had to use this morning - I know it's sheer laziness - but it's so cool to have a car that speeds up and slows down the wipers automatically according to amount of rainfall *grin*
The 206's are very nice cars. I considered one myself but the nearest Peugeot garage was in the centre of Bristol and would be a pain to get to for servicing so I got a Renault Clio instead.
I think that both the 206 & Clio's give the best value for money by far out of all the small cars - they're the only cars that have ABS and side air bags as standard. They also have good engines that have the balance between performance & economy about right. Ford & Vauxhall are very poor value for money by comparison.
An excellent choice and may it give you many years of driving enjoyment :)
