Hi,
This is my Peugeot RCZ hdi which I own for about 6 months now. Really nice car to drive on a daily basis.
Almost perfect, just looking for some minor upgrades on this forum :)

Hi and welcome to the forum, great looking car you have there, unusual alloys not seen those before. I like the little yellow detail 👍

It took a bit of modding when I got the model, but yes, now it’s a mini me 😁

I’m considering to do chiptune my RCZ to a safe 200bhp. But not totally sure because the car already drove 153.000 km, it was by far the lowest mileage available in my country when I bought it. (when I was looking there were 5 Diesels for sale currently 0...). So not sure if it’s still worth doing. To be totally honest the torque is already pretty good in the HDI.

This is my winter set, I’m still running on them because the tyres need to be replaced soon of this set. (Not enough for another winter)

I have seen this in the flesh and wonder how the hell he gets behind the wheel.. But hay ho the full size rcz launch edition and looks like the model or it visa versa.
Some one on eBay was selling a full box of 36 but no postage to the UK.... What a shame...
Hope all of you RCZers keep safe and stay lucky 🍀

Welcome, fellow Dutch HDi driver!
Interesting choice for diesel, since the road tax here for diesel is outrageous (EUR. 113 per month...).
Mine is the first one delivered to NL and used to be a demo car at Peugeot Experience in Breukelen.
I work from home so don't drive daily so it has less km than yours!
I like the yellow touches you added which goes well with black and the license plates, but not so much with the aluminium arches and the wheels.
Have you considered changing those?

Wow that's a crazy amount of money as in the UK it's only £160 for the whole year.... Drive safe and stay lucky 🍀

I don’t want to change the arches nor the wheels, in my opinion the car is really losing it’s character by changing the arches in black. By changing the arches in the same color as the car it would become more similar to an Audi TT in my opinion. I’ve chosen for the Peugeot RCZ because I think it’s a more unique and flamboyant car then the TT. It’s more likely that I will change the rest of the car, I really like the red and blue colors that were available on the RCZ. Or maybe green 😍

I will get rid of the yellow touches sooner or later anyhow because the tape is starting to come of in some places because of the sharp bends I had to make. So to be continued.

how long do you own your RCZ now? And have you already made some changes to it?

I also feel that a contrasting color for the arches and wheels looks better, but was thinking to use yellow!
I've had the RCZ from 2010 and it's a trouble free reliable car.
I only did minor changes like LED for interior lights, license plate lights and DRL, door logo lights and door latch covers.
Also, I bought the 19" Technical wheels for summer tyres and use the original 18" (which have quite a lot of corrosion damage) for the winter tyres.
With the recent maximum speed reduction and given that it's fast enough as it is, I don't feel the need for engine tuning.
