Now which is colder? SWMBO after you answered a question with the wrong answer, or the C6, or the Xantia, or the 407?

For a real cold front from the mrs, have only one toilet in the house, go up just before them in a break when they have been waiting a while. Make a smelly so bad you even think about opening the windows. Then don't. Wash hands leave and as she rushes in from holding it in ooo the face lol!!!

Time for a small update, the C6 has been pressed into services quite a bit recently, given the "incident" with the Xantia, it still makes me smile driving her, and yes I still look in plate glass windows at the reflection :oops: I know "Big Kid" :-D

It's quite strange, when you see another one on the road too, you have a momentary double take :shock: I was coming home today and saw a black one coming onto a roundabout near the house on my way home, look fantastic with all the side marker lights lit up, and it made me wonder who it was...... Yes it was mine, SWMBO had used it to run her nephew home, thought it looked amazing :wink:

I.have to say, she's behaving too, I've finally got round to ordering a replacement humidity sensor, and steering wheel angle sensor, plus we're talking about putting a towbar on her for rallies.

I want to have a look at the headlights to, I'm thinking of fitting LED's into the delights, to make them white instead of the normal bulb, I also want to replace the DRL's (Daytime Running Lights) with LED'S, something that has been done on a couple of others.

Now the Xantia has gone, I seem to.have some time on my hands, let's hope the weather plays ball too......

Nope... It's probably more to do with "Oh how having a car written off can change our minds".

It some ways, it's a bit of both. I didn't want to put a towbar on the C6 originally as I had the Xantia, which was perfectly adequate.

The C6 plans have changed because of the accident, and this will get the necessary work done over the winter to get her into the condition I want her in, it took over a year to get the mechanics right on the Xantia, before she went......

The C6 is the logical choice for towing given the suspension and having been under the Peugeot there sod all ground clearance even for changing a wheel with a trolley jack.

I bet the towbar will be a few ££. Still like the looks of C6........Something special, different.

I don't know how much the towbar is, but the electrics aren't that cheap (although this lot has come down by a third);

It's a C6 so it will need another bar two days after the warranty runs out :D

Perhaps, Will.............. but I here again, as you're u say, it's a C6.......... Oh, and as for warranty, why would you need a warranty on a toward? Unless it's been stood on something that has moved for years....like a Range Rover...... :)
