My father had an early Peugeot 405 SRi as a company car. His employer had a buy British policy, and of course the 405 was made in Ryton, Coventry. It was white, with a red pinstripe in the mouldings, and a rear spoiler. It had tweed seats, and keep fit back windows. But it was a very good looking thing, and the handling was supposed to be excellent.
The engine was the 1.9 injected 8 valve engine shared with the Citroen BX 19 GTi. Dad had one of those as his private car at the same time, and it was faster, lighter, very well equipped and superbly comfortable - all round a much nicer car. It also kept running at traffic lights, whereas the 405 spent much of its early life stalling the engine - an apparently common fault with them at the time.
