The 2.5 is magic! But then again so is the 2.1 Automagic! To change gear and get there fast, or to get there more relaxed and chilled.

Fuel consumption with the 2.5 is as bad as the 2.1 though. John will be fine :-D . Rumour has it he is going to stop collecting cars! :lol:

Robert, has John given you permission to have a fleet of 2.5s?

Good luck with the sale Dean when the time comes, and as others have mentioned, its definitely worth that money all day long.

I look forward to seeing it at CXM... :o :-D

No, no! I do like (to break) them :twisted: :twisted:

I just can't be bothered with the hassle of them. They would be fine if you only have 1 car as a toy, but when you have as many as I have, the last thing you want is a car taking up as much time as the remainder do in maintenance.

Body roll is great! :-D :-D

Plus if I wanted a fast older Citroen, a BX 16V or a CX GTi Turbo would be the ticket.

Or a BX GTi 4x4 with a nice 16v Turbo engine dropped in, though parts for them are so rare it's scarey :(
