Hi All, new member

Hi All :)

I've been a viewer of the forum for many years, now properly registered to contribute. I've had mainly Citroens over the years and the odd Peugeot here and there.

Recently traded in a 2009 C5 X7 Estate after a 2 steering racks, 1 under a warranty in 2012 and 2nd paid myself in 2015 and both new full kit including pipes fitted by Citroen. It was the 1.6HDi, found it a bit slow on pick up but fine on the motorway. Spent most of the time on motorways in the UK, France and Spain. No issues with the engine except a EGR in 130k which caused breakdown on the motorway going through Barcelona. Previously had a MK1 for 8 years a 270k and head gasket and suspension gave up the same time.

Now got a 2015 Citroen C4 BlueHDi 120 Flair S&S Bourrasque Blue. 29k so far and no issues whatsoever. Very lively car albeit it always seems to need polished.

Also have Lexia available.

Yes, welcome, and 2 steering racks? Here's to hoping my one official replacement rack will be the last on the X7 I'm wondering if at the time they replaced it with the original rack design rather than the superseded part that I had done in 2016! [-o<
