Why were you in the Migraine Luke?

I had a Mauritius Blue C6 following me when I was driving the Mauritius Blue XM last week. I hope the C6 driver was aware of what he was following.

I like how Renault V6 owners refer to coil replacements with a level of casualness other people might apply to filling the fuel tank.

I saw a dark green 406 Coupe today with very deep purple leather interior, it was quite nice! 8-)

Coils are fairly common on the ES9J4S engine. The originals have been superseeded by a superior part but there are still many older coils around.

Chris, are you sure it was dark purple? And leather? If it was in fact blue leather then you have found the only Cobalt Blue Coupé interior known in the UK. Even on the Continent it was an ultra rare option.

Im pretty sure it was a dark purple, I was stuck in traffic when the 406 coupe crawled past me with the windows down. Perhaps it was dark blue, though I would have said more purple colour. The car was dark green which is what caught my eye, as I don't remember seeing one that colour. I am in France mind, the 406 coupe is a very popular car here.

Ahh, if you're in France that accounts for it.

There is a dark blue cloth interior but if you say its leather then it has to be the Colbalt Blue.

Certainly was leather, though I would still say it was purple and not blue ... mind a few months ago I saw a 1 series cab with pink (not red!) leather, so anything is possible!

It was driving through the local village, so if I see it again ill try and take a pic. Looked good though.

Saying that, it was possibly this. though im sure it was darker.
