What does this car say about you?
A clean car turns eyes on you.

What do your friends / family / neighbours think of the car?
They cant believe that a 405 can be as good as that.

Would you buy this car again and why?
Yes, why? If they still produced them brand new, i would be the first in the list, its a superb second car for most, but its my main and i coudnt be more happier. Many think it cand out do the rest, its the driver that makes the car a beast.

What are you likely to buy next?
I have always been into 4x4 pickups, but if i cant get that when am a litle bit better off money whise its most likely going to be either a peugeot or mazda 6 mp for luks and technology in it.

Is there any special reason why you bought this car?
Best buy, the car is GTX Turbo, quality, style, handling, comfort, looks, everything, i know i know, an older car, but it beets most others + full electronics. i even traveld to Bosnia and back with it after servicing it my self, in total i have done just under 8000 miles in 5 weeks, including there and back.

Dicent enough.

Driving it

5 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
Excelent: handeleing, at 120mph easy to stear, even with a single finger, releasing the steering wheel, the car drives straight, no shaking in the car nor steering wheele. Cornering realy nice, 30mph in roundebauts, nice and steady, i cant say much more than superb. I have driven never cars and sure they have some advantages, but some of them aint even in comparison with the 405.

What's it like to park?
Parking nice and easy, but some might like a boot spoiler to easiely judge the end of the car.
