Red Xsara - NSF Damaged when I sneezed and bumped into a metal fire escape.


I'm staying well away................ :roll:
Im sorry, but thats quite funny :lol:

Ive not had the problem of a colour jinxing me. Supposedly green cars are said to be involved in more 'incidents' than other colours ... I never had that problem.

My cars are usually always a shade of grey, well I say usually always but as black and white could technically be classed as a shade of grey then thats all of them :lol:

A friend of ours used to be a broker, and he said the same thing, but he used the term "Grandad Green"......... :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

and appraently, sneezing is a valid reason for having a bump, although I suspect it would have to be more that a mouse's.......

Why are C6s from 2005 in a cheaper tax bracket?

Free tax on a C6, thats better than £20 a year for a C1 :lol:

The first ones in 55 plates and 60 plates are on the older tax system.. Then after 2006 the prices changed again higher...
