Good news, you wouldnt like a Clio after a Xantia :lol:

Sometimes you need to try another car, just to remind yourself of how much you really like your own. :)

Yes i agree totally with that :D :D :D

Funny thing was i thought she might actually appreciate a smaller car as all her travelling is in and around town/country roads but she was most annoyed by the suggestion and said she felt like she was being disloyal to the VSX just by trying the Clio.

Just goes to show i dont really understand SWMBO, i thought to her a car was just a car but then the VSX is a bit special 8-)

I do that with our Vauxhall Ashtray, makes me feel much better about my Xantia :D

As the old slogan says 'Nothing moves you like a Citroen'.

Though, saying that this advert makes me want a Peugeot 405 Estate.
405s are more common down here than Xantias :roll: I'm not joking either :twisted:

EDIT: URL Tag out of place :oops:

There's never understanding any SWMBO Colin :twisted:

They're like that, you think you finally have them figured out and then they do something to show you haven't got them figured at all!

I feel exactly the same loyalty for my MK1 V6 and so do my kids. I briefly discussed the possibility of selling it now I have the MK2 and they almost hit the roof at me for making such an outrageous suggestion...

Kev, having had two I know where you're coming from... They're seriously good, even today...

Ahhh, that advert is just so special and made all the more special by the music. Berlin - Take My Breath Away..

I love that song, one of my all-time favourites and forever associated with the 405!

Peugeot used to make so great adverts. Remember the Indian 206 one where a lad makes his Hindustan Ambassador look like a 206 with the help, amongst other things. of an elephant.

Pure quality :P

Colin, sorry for the excursion into Off-Topic territory there :oops:
