Welcome Mike :welc:

I am guilty of ignoring speed bumps too - really upsets the drivers of Audis, BMWs and the Mercedes S320 I rapidly caught up with yesterday evening :). He looked really aggrieved :twisted:

Doesn't appear to have had any undesirable effects yet, in six years of abuse.

It's a strange thing.
Both of my sons and my youngest daughter, none of whom are known to hang about, think my C5 is too sedate and wallowy to be considered in any way worthwhile.
The sons have: 1, a Volvo S6 2.4 ST, 2: a Pug 1.9 D-Turbo and 3: daughter #3 has a Rover 75 but previously had 2 SAAB monsters.
I often find though that the C5 will leave potentially unbeatable adversaries in it's wake.
On the same roundabout with traffic lights, both times with me on the inside lane as I was turning off after half a mile, there was, a couple of weeks ago a Submarine WRX and yesterday a Vectra 2.0 Diesel (with much smoke) both itching to be off with the usual revving and creeping forward a few inches at a time.
Yesterday I was around the roundabout and almost to my exit before the Vectra appeared in my mirror.
The Scooby appeared when I was 50 yards out of the roundabout and soon left me in it's wake, accompanied by lots of noise and serious amounts of smoke.

Could be they can only drive fast in a straight line of course.

Welcome Mike :-D

Yes, the 2.0 HDi Xantia is a seriously good motor... And at 153K a mere child :-D Mine's on 204K almost and as sweet as a nut...

They're proving to be good survivors. If you think a 90 goes well then try a 110 :wink: For an oil-burner they're just incredible...
