Well you don't want to go over washing these C5s you know, they are rarely used to it :lol:

My C5 gets frequent washes but my sisters C5 goes a year/12,000 miles between cleans. :shock:

That is annoying!

Try ebay, usually a good source of badges. You could always take them all off?

I would but the badges have holes in the boot lid to line them up so too much work to fill and spray the boot

I forgot they had holes, a slightly pointless idea!

had a little accident last week which resulted in me needing 2 new doors on the passenger side front door in exact colour is now fitted and finished but I will need to swap the locks over at some point. Back door not quite the same colour but close enough is fitted but it came with a manual winder so will need to get that swapped over before the job is finished.

Today I also fitted a replacement comms unit as the auto lights aint working and looks like it still isn't working but will see

Managed to break the drivers arm rest so will need to fix that part of the plastic in the seat has come away looks like both rivets are ow gone will need to figure out how to sort that :(
