1007 Introduction

Sport or Dolce? (UK versions)

The Sport adds to the Dolce:

Body colour door rubbing trips; aluminium pedals; different spotlight surround; different lower panel at the rear; alloy wheels; sports seats (though I can feel no difference); alloy gear knob; black tinted headlamps; automatic headlamps and wipers; digital climate control heating/cooling; front carpet mats; door sill kick plates; silver surround to radio/heater and disc brakes at the rear.

None of which is essential to the enjoyment of your 1007

Useless fact:

The original price (May 2006) for my yellow 1.4 Dolce manual was £10,850 but after throwing £3,900 (yes, almost £4,000) of extras at it, the showroom price became £14,750 and it still lacks metallic paint or Sport trim!  The original price of my green 1.6 Sport auto was £12,800 - plus £900 of extras - so the showroom price became £13,700

So it was possible to buy a Dolce manual for £1,200 more than the top-of-the-range Sport!
Extras on my Dealer Special yellow 1007

Dealer Specials are quite rare now, but were in showrooms back in 2005 to show off the wide range of extras that could be factory fitted to your new 1007. Mine is a Dolce with drum rear brakes and non-metallic paint to which has been added:

So extras added 36% to the initial cost of the Yellow car!

An unusual extra (made possible by the height within the cabin) was available:   Electrically operated swivelling passenger seat  .   Called the Turnout and made by Swedish firm Auto Adapt.  Can also be fitted on the driver's side.  Peugeot main dealers can have the conversion done (eg Bakers of Gillingham, Tel: 01747 822434)

If a qualifying mental or physical disability exists the seat conversion is exempt from VAT.  They cost about £1,500 (VAT at 0%).  Then the whole vehicle may be VAT exempt as a "vehicle converted on account of a disability", saving the amount spent on the seat in VAT.  - - - -  see Honest John
