To be totally honest Mark, I have no idea what he's doing with the ZX. I do know that if he does break a 16V then he will be keeping the bits.

I've been asking for a fortnight for the region number of the Volcane and I'm still waiting, hence buying the Xantia.... As the the pictures, I shall be having a little chat with a certain young man who took the picture for the advert..... :-D though I do plan on taking some this weekend..... Depending on whether I go in the Xantia or C6 :wink:

The clips can be got from Citroen but the alarm led will either need gluing in place or a new grille surround button blank to sit in :) easy fixes!

And you know I'm joking, the day for me to have a C6 has not arrived yet!

Looking forward to your article Steve :-D

"It never rain's when it pours" is the adage.

Firstly, I got a phone call from Mark the other night, the ZX Volcaine is ready, am I still interested? - err, no, but let me know how you get on, I might be able to help.

Secondly, Phone call from Nigel Wild, Would I like to exhibit the C6 at the Manchester Classic Car show? - OH Fiddlesticks (and believe me I cleaned that up :twisted: ) can't I'm on Holiday and It's being serviced whilst we're away. Nigel is struggling, so I'm trying to come up with a plan, very quickly, whether it will work is another matter..........

Due to the Xantia throwing a "hissy fit" this morning :twisted: I decided to take the C6 to work today....... "by 'eck" I'd forgotten how quiet it was :shock: no throb from the exhaust like the Xantia has, and the other thing is that you don't realise how fast your going until you look at the heads up display (HUD) :shock: I kept having to ease off the accelerator :^o

I miss driving this car.............. 8-[

It's amazing how driving any other car, no matter what it is makes you realise how good the C6 is when climbing back into it!

I had a silver 2.7 on Northern Irish plates park next to me whilst out today and saw another 07 plate with roof bars on it in the carpark across the road too!

I brought the C6 to work today, mainly because the boot was full of books for Malcolm via FCF Couriers. I miss this car :oops:

The differences between driving the C6 and the Xantia are many, not least the difference in the seats the C6 has more of an armchair feel, whereas the Xantia is more dining chair, by comparison. :roll:

I also love the way this thing just "hunker's" down and accelerates, don't get me wrong, the 3.0i 24v in the Xantia goes but by god, the C6 lift's it's feet ( and the boot spoiler) :wink:

These are the books coming via me later this fine day I guess Steve. I trust they're of suitable reading material and not something dodgy such as Malcolm's complete guide to double entendres or some such...

Is there that many that they won't fit the Xantia boot then? If so I'll have to hire a warehouse somewhere in MK to store them... :lol:

Morning Jim,

Basically 6 boxes of Citroën books for old foggies........ :rofl2: I do have to say though in his defence that it mostly 'D' related with a bit of 'G' on the side.........

Sounds Almost Musical. Andre's symphony in D Major with bits of it in G major...

Mind you, seeing the 'G' I'm sure Malcolm will make something of it... :twisted:
