If it was Town Centre Citroën you were about four miles from me :)

Didn't notice any red C5s when I was there on Saturday, just a silver estate that has been there a while, 55 reg IIRC.
Steve,

TRC or TRJ I think, in was on a strange roundabout with a petrol station in the middle.

Jim,

He's a heathen, he's said the only way he'll ever have a C6 is, and, I quote "when they make an estate and take the flaming leather out" :roll:

I was a bit baffled at first but I used to pass it regularly, TRG Car Sales
Supposed to be the best fish and chips in Sunderland on that roundabout. Never sampled them though.

That's the place, I knew it was TR? something or other :?

On another note, my quest for the 'original 10' got another boost yesterday, YON has been seen out and about in the Cookham area.

Well, been a while since I updated this, and to be honest a busy time. Sarah's mum passed away last week and the funeral on Monday saw the C6 drafted into action (as an emergency funeral car) when 3 of "Grumps" sisters arrived from Bristol and decided they wanted join the courtage, thankfully it was clean and freshly polished.

The funeral director was extremely impressed, and couldn't stop talking about the car. All in all, I'm pleased to say went off smoothly, with rave review's from the family about the car.

Yesterday was MOT and Service time (80,000 miles) actually I've done nearer 90,000 but hey ho, I get the dreaded phone call last night, to say your car has passed the MOT ( \:D/ ) BUT, we are advising that you replace the suspension arm bushes, these come attached to the arms for the princely sum of £131.11 per side, oh and Citroen recommend that you replace the hubs at the same time..... Now hang on [-X ...... The hubs were replaced under warrenty last year by yourselves, are you saying that they have to be replaced again? Not sure was the reply, we'll have to speak to technical.....

Anyway, service and MOT came to £550something.

On another note, I've decided to splash out on a lexia, which arrived yesterday, watch this space for the chaos this could cause

Well, It's been another busy time at work, what with one thing and another, Not much to report on the C6 front, except that the car has reached 92,000 miles.

The RT3 has developed the predictable problem with the satnav disc, in that the disc doesn't always read and can take 5 or 6 attempts to get it working, I'm hoping that I can strip it down and clean the heads and this will solve it.............. I have the nagging feeling that it won't though :roll: but hey, whats new?

I've track down the suspension arms for the pricely sum of £70.00 opposed the Citroen's price of £131.00 per side, so that will get done in the next couple of weeks.

I've also treated myself to a Lexia 3which I need to get set up and have a play with before offering my services to anybody, once I feel confident I'll let Steve (Myglaren) know to add me to the list.

It is, I got it for about £100, I haven't got round to setting it up yet, I need to sort an XP laptop out, before I use it. Hopefully I'll get it done before weekend, if I do I'll fetch it with me at weekend.

Seems like a good price, where did you get it from? There are so many kicking around on ebay I don't know who to get one from, though I assume they are all the same.

I have a laptop which will be ideal for the Lexia program, I just need the Lexia now.

Steve, damn you. That link made me £100 lighter. Still, it's similar to the welder in that it should soon earn its keep.

I've got my first job on it already, Pug 206 with a light on :D

Snap!

This is going to be fun, the three C5s should keep it entertained if nothing else ... not that they go wrong but there is many things to fiddle with on them :lol:
