Well that's the C6 finished... It passed it's MOT today with flying colours, not even an advisory!

I've taxed it this afternoon, and have taken it for a run to put some Diesel in it. One problem I found is that the fuel pump cuts off all the time for some reason which makes putting fuel in it a very slow and laborious process. It certainly does drive very well indeed.

Excellent result David :-D

I had a car like that once, a very slow and frustrating filler... Can't think which it was now...

Was that why the airbags went off? Ex-owner got so niggled filling it up one day he gave it a swift kick of frustration and set the airbags off?

Your old Reddy-bluey XM did and still does that.

Which reminds me, I really should wake the old girl up.

Well the tracking was checked on the car yesterday. It never pulled to the side and always went in a straight line but the steering wheel wasn't centred which really irked me when I drove it.

It was checked and reset locally yesterday and it has transformed the car. It feels like a different car in fact. They confirmed whilst they looked at it that everything under there is straight as well. So that's 3 people who have checked everything over under it now and confirmed that nothing is damaged underneath.

So... that draws this project to and end and I've got a cracking C6 out of it! Need to find something else to keep me amused now!

:D

Steve visited from Preston in his C6 today... It was interesting to ride in the 2.2 and 2.7 one after the other, it's amazing how much of a difference there is between the two cars! The suspension setup on them is totally different and the difference is notable even after a few yards!

My C6's wheels were dropped off this afternoon to be refurbished.

They're getting blasted, powder coated and baked in the oven. I'll have them back tomorrow evening :) In the meantime, it's a *proper* floating Citroen...

Can't wait to see them!

David.

What a long day,left Preston this morning at 5:45am, called at Lancaster to pick up Mark (MDS131) we arrived at David's about 9:30, spent the day running round doing various things, thoroughly enjoying ourselves 'Citroening'

We left about 5:45pm and I arrived home about 9:30 after dropping Mark off and a run to the chippy..... ;)
