    Default My Peugeot RCZ THP 200

    Just collected a Peugeot RCZ yesterday! Was an 850 km trip there and back (425+425) so i also got to roadtest it a little
    This has been my dream car for a while and now i finally bought one!

    Equiptment is:
    200 bhp
    Pearl White
    JBL HiFi
    Bi-Xenon
    Black calipers
    19" Sortilége + 18" 5 spoke original rims for the winter tires. One of them was a bit messed up on an edge sadly.
    Car was registered 19.5.2011 and has now been driven 42.000 km, is quite a lot and it was my only concern but however i tried i did not find any faults or bad spots technical-wise. Time will tell.

    Paint was in great shape apart from a few stonechips in the front but they were so small you don't see them from a distance, Is to be expected anyway with all the miles on it. There also was a small half-inch jack on the lowest part on the rear bumper but it too is barely noticeable. And the black roof is quite full of washing-scrapes. Should disappear with polishing.

    While going home i averaged 6.1l/100km (46 MPG) in fuel which is not bad either

    Nothing to complain about so far so lets keep it that way please! The cabin noise was a bit more than i expected tho according to my phone between 65-70 dB depending on asphalt condition. Nothing i can't live with tho. Also i thought it revved quite a lot while driving 65 mph or so it was at about 3100 RPM. Is that really normal?!

    A few quick pictures taken while driving and one at home, there will be more to follow naturally:

    Nice one

    I'll be honest I ignored the notification of this thread at first as I thought it would just be another TDU mod request


    3100rpm does sound a tad high for motorway speeds, but I can't really comment objectively since I've got 7 gears


    Be sure to find the Driving Videos and Acceleration videos threads and update them

    ^ Yeah, I thought it was a request as well.

    Anyway, congrats and have fun with it as they're told be fun cars from what I've read. It is the 1.6 THP, isn't it?

    My Audi does 2-3k RPM at 80kph I guess the gear ratios are optimized for city driving, not sure if that could be the case here

    Anyways, beautiful car, hopefully you have better roads down there than we have here

    Thanks for the comments guys I love driving it, it's a lot of fun and so very beautiful. As for the engine RPM apparently it's supposed to be like that. Gearbox ratios are set up like that, but it's fine eitherway It's not a racing car, it's a cruising car

    Yes it's the 1.6l THP 200 engine

    I'll see about more pictures in the coming days depending on weather/time etc...

    Nice car. the RCZ is a car that i personally think is underrated and oozes style!

    The black alloys really go with the white on it!

    One of the few Peugots I actually like! Nice choice, looks quite sporty.

    3100rpm at 65mph? My little 4-speed is only at about 3300rpm at 70.

    Great choice of a car. I wish Canada could import euro cars.

    Anyways back on topic. Really? 42000km since 2011 is alot???? Average now a days is 25000 average per year. So I do believe that is pretty good. Mine is 2009 and I have 126000.

    And with the RPM wise, since I am guessing its a 4 banger(4 cylinder) and a 1.6L? If that is right then your RPM are right. I do 3100RPM at 140kph but mine is a 1.8L with a throttle controller. So you are fine.

    Yes the revs are nothing to worry about. It's supposed to be like that.

    Well thing is i saw another one of these RCZ's that had the exact same spec and also a 2011 that only had 7000 km on it and it was only 1000 € more expensive. I'm still disappointed in myself for not buying that one instead, but the one i do have is still great so i'm still happy.

    I'm gonna get the car a full detailing in 2 weeks time or so to clear up any scratches in the paintwork so it'll look brand new again!

    Went out for a little drive around some backroads today. I probably had a pretty high average speed.... Car pulls good above 4000rpm in 4th
    Was the first time i've gotten to test the car a little more on twisty roads too. Only problem was that there were a lot of bumps in the road so i was a bit fearful of the rims But they made through it so it's all good.

    A few quick pictures i took while letting the car "cool down" a bit:

    These were the kinda roads i was on, altho this is in a small village.




    The LED's are still there




    That's all for now

    Hope one day we'll see this car in TDU2

    Took a few pictures yesterday Only phonecamera sĺ they're not that sharp but still.







    Also had the pleasuse of BEING REVERSED INTO yesterday! --.-- The idiot got off lucky tho as it only left a small paintmark behind the left side wheel on the bumper. Was able to rub it away, and no dents occured. Inspected it today and it looks fine from what i can tell. Thank god for that.
