"The right convertible for the English weather"

Imagine a great sunny day, you take you car and your little family - must be small !! - for a drive. Sun is shining so you decide to take the roof of your convertible off. Pull a blind-like security screen in the boot, unlatch the roof, press a button and off you go, the roof is retracted within a matter of tens of seconds. Now, it has happen to all of us and no later than yesterday. Sun is beating down and suddenly dark clouds start piling up and quicker than you can say 'it is gonna rain' rain is pelting down. Well, I have seen convertible where you have to get out of the car, unlock your roof compartment, take the roof off, pull it all the way, then get to your car... you get the gist...
In the 206cc, nothing like it, the roof come and goes whilst you are sitting and pressing a button - up or down depending.
The car is nippy enough on the road even with a 1.6 engine and the 2l though more powerful will cost you more to tax and run. The 1.6 will do you about 35m/gallon though we are not thee most economical of drivers. It comes with tons of standard stuff such as CD player, 2 airbags, alarm and immobiliser and the interior design is A1 and you have leather seats, CD changer and sports pack as options. The boot is surprisingly big, even with the roof down, it will hold a collapsible pram and some shopping bags - weekly supermarket run for example. The driving position is great though your side vision is slightly obscurred by the angle of the windscreen. Forgtet about the 4 seater, you can fit 3 though the one behind will have little room to move, especially if you have an adult on the passenger seat. If you were to compare it to its posh consort, the SLK, then you have a bargain at 15K.
I have found an insurance that would consider it as a hardtop - Footman James.
Now, in the last 6 month we have had the car, we had to change the passenger seat twice. The seat is not the most user friendly thing in the car and involves a mechanism that you could only describe as diabolical. Once the roof is up, the windows do tend to rattle a bit which can be annoying and finally with all that engineering, you might say that potentially there are a lot more things that can go wrong.
However, the 206cc will be 3 years old come next year which means that spare parts will be available from other sources than Peugeot itself which is great news since part at Peugeot can be rather dear.

    These have been really popular (work in a dealership for Peugeot) - but were originally only a concept. Public demand forced it into production for retail. We have had problems with roofs and windows getting stuck but nothing major! Shona p.s. have you seen the new 307CC?
