I have to agree about the 'ole in the roof Andrew :D As much as I like aircon I still like a sunroof, if only for the light it lets in. Tell you the truth, I'm claustraphobic to a degree, well a lot actually, and the sunroof really does help ease it. Some cars are out of bounds to me for the very reason I feel trapped in them. One, notably, is the Ford Fiesta and Ka. I've been in roomier rabbit hutches...

The bumper: Either he's damaged the tongue replacing it or just been lazy and not engaged it properly when replacing. If broken it can be a bit tricky to fix. More likely the latter rather than damage though, it's pretty flexible...

Those things really are dirt cheap in the UK. :shock: If I was any closer I'd buy that for the leather interior alone.

The thing is with a sun roof as long as the car has a fully adjustable seat I.E including height adjustment on the squab front and back) then it's possible to get a good driving position.

The reason why I say this, is because in actual fact when a sunroof is fitted in most cars you get less head room, because the outer roof stays the same, whereas the inside gets a different headlining which is lower (around the sunroof) and, the sunroof itself also intrudes into the interior.

I prefer a car without a sun roof to be honest, because I'm 6'3" and MUCH prefer the head room! That's as long as it has aircon of course, which I'll discover about April... :)

I find the adjustment on the Activa seats quite infuriating. The tilt goes back and forward, and the height tilts as well! It probably doesn't help that I like to sit high up, so I can (hopefully) see where I'm parking...

Not to mention the weight savings. ;) Having less weight on the roof means that there's a lot less weight transfer during cornering... atleast this is what I keep telling myself when driving my sunroofless Activa. :P

Looks nice, will be a nice car for someone

"all the toys" means what? I cant see the headlamp washers, wonder what it actually has? It doesnt mention any interior.

Still, it really does look lovely :D

And another. Looks familiar - might have been listed before recently. Possibly one of the original demonstrators from the number plate:

That is a low mileage for a 14 year old car, if it's the correct mileage.

And so very tempting. Has anyone bought this on here? Its still on autotrader, think ill ring up about this tomorrow, that would suit me perfectly!

Why does it reg look familiar? Was that ever a press car that we might have seen in some roadtests?

XCF registrations were common for Citroën UK car's around 95, some of which were used for press photo's.
