For a big car, they're not bad for manoeuvring...the parking sensors are handy too. 8-)

But going down Queensgate multi-storey carpark can be a bit tight! :erm:

Not much been happening to be honest :? Still haven't got round to looking fro the squeal on the brakes, but not to worried at the moment as I think it's the pad compound. :roll: :roll:

I was asked a couple of months ago if I would let another forum use pics of the car to promote their forum to which I agreed, Here is their flyer:

Other than that, I've been thinking about trying to track down the other 9 of the C6's registered in 2005. I think it would make a good story, but I think I'm going to need some help. I plan to email both Citroen and the DVLA to see what help they can give without breaking Data Protection. I suppose it's me being nosy really :oops: I just think it could be a really good photo.

Still need to get the scratch out of the boot lid, and a couple of other light scratch that have suddenly materialised 'polished out' so need to get my tub of elbow grease out this week, suject to weather.

Rightyho! Car washed, vac'd, boot emptied, just got to fuel up, I'll be leaving about 8:30 hoping to be at Little Horwood around 10:30 ish :wink: pinch tent, then :beer:

If you hear brakes squealling, it'll be me. Pads and Discs need replacing so, I've ordered them as I've a couple of days off this week (Mintex Pads and Front Discs from Fleabay £130).

See you later, if not the morning....... :wink:

Drove down on Saturday night to the CXM and back yesterday Fuel consumption was good

but managed to get a Lexia sesion out of Paul before I left which cleared a lot of the faults and for some reason help fuel consuption to a staggering

on the way back, The only issue is I forgot about the issue with the tyre valves, which was what I wanted sorting out :oops: will have to have a trip to Welsh Wales at some point :wink: Thank you to you all for "A grand day out" :clap:

Finally got round to get the brake disc's and pads for the front, decided to change the disc's as well. Managed to get the discs and Mintex pads for £95 so a good buy there, me thinks. :wink: Just need to keep an eye out for the rear's, as I'm planning on doing those as well. Must remember to get caliper paint as well :roll:

I'm long weekend off in a fortnight, so plan on doing them then, I must remember to take plenty of pics, as I suspect this won't be the first time they get done. I'm planning on keeping this early beast. :)

Other than that, not much to report on the motoring front, need to get a head cleaning disc for the satnav as it works straight away most of the time, but occasionally can be a real pain to get it working, have to keep ejecting the disc :twisted: :twisted: which really bug's the hell out of me.

Treated myself to a car polisher for my birthday last month, so having great fun with that, just need to work out the polish and wax I like best, then I can keep on top of it. 8-) Been told about something called "swissvax" that I want to look into.

Just been to W.R.Davies Citroen main dealer in Stafford to buy a part for my C5 and spotted this C6 in the carpark. Thought you might like a photo as it's a 55 plate 'YOL' for your collection.
