Been a busy lad (cough) this morning, I plugged the Lexia to try and sort out the RT$ Navidrive, the BSI wasn't configured, managed to get that sorted after a bit of faffing on my part :roll: Thanks to "The Birdman" for providing me with the code I needed. I still have an issue with a lack of power supply to the steering wheel angle sensor, but judging by post's on http://www.C6Owners.org" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; this related to the brake switch...........That's a Citroen for you :roll: :roll: :roll:

I wanted to do a load more but the rain started again, so that put pay to that :!:

Been talking to "Vince" tonight about his new motor, and arranging to collect it, haven't been to Anglesey for Donkey's Year's so looking forward to that.

SWMBO :dom: is at work in the morning, so time to start writing the column for August before HRH THE EDITOR shout's at me, anyway 3 weeks to Beaulieu...................... that's going to be a busy weekend, Friday in welsh Wales and the Saturday, Sunday and Monday in Hampshire...............

Actually, Chris I could take the newly aquired soft top, it's exceptionally good on fuel, and there's no chance of me getting a speed ticket...........

I'm sure I've written this once before :shock:

Here's the new softtop:

Tickets have arrived for Beaulieu, for a fortnights time, setting off mid morning on the Saturday for a leisurely drive down, guessimate time of around 5 hours, The Friday before, Vince and I are off to collect his 'new motor' (seem to recall a song about that).

Other than that, a busy week ahead, I'm off to Lancaster this afternoon to play with a few trains if we have any given the flooding, This is the line north of Carlisle Image

The "Citroenian" is out, comments please, good or bad............ I'm trying to get a feel for whatyou want.

Well I'm off to Beaulieu on Friday, and Vince has very kindly deferred picking up his XM so I can valet the car on Friday :lol: :lol: before I go, I'm planning on leaving around 12ish which should see me there for about 5ish give or take. Once down there I'm setting up the tent and then meeting up with a mate of mine who has a Peugeot 607.

I'm planning to stop a couple of times on the way down, so if anyone wants to convoy down from the north or midlands let me know, I haven't looked at the route yet but I'm guessing M6, M1, M25 and then whatever.... :?:

I'm taking the Lexia, just in case anyone needs one, and I will be doing the RT4 firmware update on the way down.

An excellent first column Steve =D> I know how difficult it is to write that very first one and now you're past that hurdle it gets easier. I enjoy your easygoing style and having something a little technical in it...

Not sure about your mugshot though... Barely recognised you!!! Get Chris to take a better one when you and he meet up at a rally... That's what he did with me...
