    hi all, have had my 207cc from new in 2007, yes 11 years old this year, its been a great car, after about 3 months I noticed some very tiny blistering on the boot lid silver trim, I notified Peugeot and they sent me there spray shop, they took photos and a couple of weeks later Peugeot told me it was to trivial a matter, I didn't think any more of it, couple of years latter there were huge blisters and paint coming off the trim, I also noticed on many other 207cc vehicles the same problem so its not just my vehicle, just recently I decided to remove the trim and have it resprayed, I have just received it back from a qualified spray shop, and have already noticed a huge blistering, apparently the trim is fibreglass, I was warned at the time that if I had it sprayed there was no guarantee it would not happen again in say 5 years time, I was ok with that but it seems it hasn't lasted a week, just wondered if anyone else has had same problem

    regards

    Hi mate, no it got really bad, blistered so much I took it into a body spray plant early last year, got it stripped right back, had it sprayed black same colour as my vehicle, looked great for a week an started blistering again, took it back and they were puzzled as to why, they had it then for over a month and baked it in oven, not sure what the material is, think it's kind of a plastic, fitted it again as the whole thing comes off the vehicle, it really looked great again, but after a couple of weeks in that hot weather we had last year I could see several blisters again but the weird thing is the blisters disappear an reappear, depending on weather, it's cold and wet now and I don't see them, the spray job cost me a 100 quid, the vehicle is 12 years old now, looks great, only done 35k miles from brand new, if I keep the vehicle and it gets bad again I will get it skin wrapped
