I think the last one with some small changes would be quite a good daily commuter!

Giving a lift to the pub with some of the ladies i work with could be interesting though as their skirts are so tight they can barely walk in them!

I don't know about Dark Star, I'm thinking more along the lines of the Dark side :saber:

I have this (somewhere) on DVD, although I'm not sure I should have admitted this!

Ahh! Citroen have reinvented the wheel. It's now vaguely hexagonal!

Hmm, so more "oomph" than the ZX which was a Volcane with the TD lump and 90BHP... Could be anything...! :lol: :lol:

My bets are with a Xantia HDi Exclusive - still a Turbo Diesel so good MPG, 110BHP, and Paul runs one too...!

Although there are two ??s in the signature (C4/C5?), although that's probably a red herring as I can't think of a colour with one letter...! :wink: :lol:

Will its in Ashford near Staines and I'm going down for it tomorrow morning on the train.

From what I understand it's probably the most "fettled" V6 in out there being an ex Roger Bamford car, having said that I will know more tomorrow.... :-D

Fingers crossed for you as being one of Rogers it should be pretty good but as Jim says, you can never have enough spares ;)

Ah would you believe it...! :lol:

I saw the advert and was wondering who won it! :wink:

It is indeed a lovely car that one, and indeed was Roger *Bradford's own person car. Infact Roger, Dad and I went down to the West Country searching out old Citroens and on our way back dropped Roger off to a train station so he could head to Wales to pick it up... We briefly owned it after Roger passed away, got it back on the road and then Jason became custodian... The rest is, as they say...history! Jason popped over and I photo'd it for him for the eBay advert... I can confirm that car goes, and sounds, very well indeed... :twisted: :wink:

Enjoy the car Steve.

Well, she's home, sat cooling on the drive, good drive home although I forgot about the cruise control, the accelerator is heavier that the C6, as is the steering, also coolant light flashed on a couple of times so first thing in the morning, I will give her a going over and get a list of bits for Paul to take to CXM.

The decision now of course is whether to take the Xantia or C6..... I never thought I would have fleet issues..

Thanks Will, to be honest, the only things I've found so far are the LED on the dash for the alarm is hang loose and there are some clips gone on the NSF door that hold the plastic side moulding on the door

Can't wait for the pics Steve :-D . Your specialist with the Zx16v's , would he be breaking any just out of interest or are they all projects ? What's happening to the nice volcane now Steve ? No I can't take it on , that would mean BIG trouble , it will make someone a cracking plaything for not a load of cash , in my eyes a better daily driver than dare I say it a Citro-blooded one :wink: :lol: .
