 Peugeot 307 Breaknck 
My exhaust had developed a booming noise and eventually the pipe going into the backbox broke off, so I took it over to an exhaust service place for a fix.

While at it, I took an opportunity to remove the broken spare wheel mechanism to finally check what's going on with it.

The problem was quite obvious and it's a common one on 307 Break & SW cars.

The solution was simple - new cable made based on the original one - much cheaper than a complete new mechanism from Peugeot.

Meanwhile, my expensive Varta battery had died (just outside the warranty period - typical). I purchased a cheaper 60Ah one this time, that seems to do the job just as well.

I've had this idea for winter wheels setup for a while and I've finally got it done now - 406 Coupe V6 Starfish wheels, 7x16" ET12. I don't think I've ever seen another 307 with them on.

Nice and wide, they fill the arches just like the later version Coupe wheels (Hoggar) I've had on the car in the past, but visually suit the 307 better. All I now need is a V6 engine, haha.

I love getting standard 307 Break and/or SW examples in the same shot with 307 Breaknck :-).

Other than low stance and big wheels, I also like big and powerful brakes! That's why I fitted 406 Coupe V6 Brembo 4-pot calipers that I used to have on my 405 T16 as well.

However, the original 406 Coupe V6 setup uses 305x28 mm discs, but due to the design of 307's hubs, they fit straight on only with standard 307's 283x26mm discs (just ilke on 205/206/306).
