To be honest Fraklin, I never thought to ask #-o not that it matters to me. A 5 would be more practical, but having said that, I can't see it becoming the 'family' car, that's what the C6 is for.....

Mark
It is =D>

1994 (L reg mk1) One owner from new, full service history, in fact every reciept, 130,000 in White with Black Leather interior, I've been told £700. Now I know that's a little bit over the odd's but given the history I think it's worth the extra. Mark the mechanic who has it in storage is taking me to see it next week.

So while I'm there I'll try and get some picture of the two 16Valvers for you Mark.... :-D
That sounds like a very tempting buy 8-)

After some serious consideration, I've decided to replace the EGR and not blank it off. It's not been an easy decision, but as I don't plan on selling the car, I want it to work as it should.

So early June, She's going in to have a new valve, I could do it myself, i suppose, but I can't be bothered, plus I don't have the inclination (read lazy).

So, after the considerable sum of money that's going to cost are we going to see you with a begging bowl at subsequent rallies and a placard saying "C6 to maintain and keep. Please give generously" And don't forget you'll need a mangy dog and a harmonica as well...

I know what you mean Steve. My Xantia V6 is going in for an MOT tomorrow. I checked her over and found what I think is a marginal flexi hose. I'm sending the car in with a new hose sitting on the passenger seat and a note to the effect of please fit if you feel it's necessary..

No Jim, it's not quite that bad, although I may have to consider moving from Heinz Beanz to Tesco own label :lol: :lol:

as for the Harmonica, It's an idea, although it would be more a case of paying me to shut up :idea: hmmm there's a thought :-k ......... :roll: I'm tone deaf, this could be very lucerative.... \:D/

Just a thought, but I have a 10 note Harmonica (that I have been told is correctly made and in tune), AND an electronic drum (ish) kit that could be hooked up to a midi amp (it is for Band Hero on the Xbox, but it is midi compatible). However, it doesn't mean I can play either of them!

Got the C6 back yesterday, after having the EGR valve replaced, The indie did a cracking job and a bit of a deal as well. Came out at under £500 including part and that was the best part of £300 so I'm a happy bunny. :lol:

I've not really had chance to give it a good run, although driving to work this morning, she did feel a hell of a lot better, with no spluttering, stuttering or chugging. Mark has given me the old valve and it's covered in CR..... err.... muck :?

I've had SWMBO's Polo for most of the week, and whilst it's a little cracker around town... but it's not a Citroen. :-D

Cosmetically, I need to get a couple of jobs done, Mark spotted a bit of rust on the NSR panel by the tail light and there's some lacquer peeling on the OSF wing, plus the powder coating on the wheels is cracking, so still jobs to do.

OH HELL YES!!

I spoke to Mark about that very thing the other day, He's currently rebuilding a BX to bring to the National, so the Volcane is on the back burner.... I've told him I'm interested and that I'm in no rush. I've got jobs to do on the C6 so I can see it being towards the end of the year, If Mark has it ready...... [-o<

That would mean next year before I show it, I might even let Vince do his 'magic' on it :wink: before showing it next year. I would have liked to show it this year, but it doesn't look like it won't be ready for the National and I can't make CXM because of work :twisted: There's a slim possibility of the Midland Rally...... so fingers are crossed. :roll:
