Hello from Leeds!

Postby whatdoesthisbuttondo » 08 Mar 2012, 13:14

Hello All,
I'm looking at buying a C5 (2009 ish , I believe thats a Mk3?) 2.0 HDi +NAV the 140 version, so nows your chance to put me off before I go ahead!
Currently in an '03 vectra @ 130K miles which is feeling a bit tired and this time I want something a bit different!
I've had it 6 years and have put 80K on it myself and intend to do the same with the C5.

Looking around the site, you all seem like a freindly helpfull bunch so I'm looking forward to saying hello and not getting in the 'problems' section!

Thanks...........I was beginning to think everyone was French and I was getting the cold shoulder!(I work for a French company!)

I bought a C5 and pick it up tomorrow....

I missed this, welcome to the FCF :-D

Congratulations on your C5 purchase, im sure it will serve you well :)

There are a few threads on here about problems with the C5III but probably best you dont look at them now you have taken the plunge :lol: No, really they seem reliable and the engines are well proven. I quite fancy a C5III myself.

Is it a manual or an auto? Just wondering what suspension it has.

Hello Chris, its a 6 speed manual with steel bits. I think the hydro is an option but is standard on the exclusive.
Its a lovely car, I dont know if Im still getting used to it but it does seem to float around more than the vectra. That said its easier to manouvre!
