I knew the guy that bought it was a trader. That car was ready to die, and is without a doubt the worst car I have ever driven.

I was so happy to see the back of the hateful thing.

Tempted???

I'd be happy to see the back of it too :wink:

I wouldn't be tempted if it was £5.75 :lol:

So presumably he's going to be making double bubble off of it if you were just happy to get rid of it ...dealers huh :roll:

Haha yeh I don't know why I ever bought it. Didn't lose anything on it though, thankfully. He has no chance of getting rid of it at that price... less than 2 months MOT, no tax AND it's a Daewoo.

It also drives like the front axle is held on by string, and the engine goes a little bit on fire after a few minutes of driving.

Hateful car

That just means the car has 'character' :lol: It wouldn't be a Daewoo if it wasn't a p.o.s :D

Here's your v6 :wink: http://www.frenchcarforum.co.uk/forum/v ... ht=#277724

:lol: :lol: :lol:

That's a cheap V6 Xantia. I really want one. Find me one on this island :)

It'll be interesting to see how one compares to the C5 V6.

Ooooh it's got the no airbag steering wheel! Nice colour, and it's petrol :D :D :D

Shame it's not a sinker.

There was a V6 Xantia on gumtree up here, Robert went to view it and said it was needing quite a bit of work. They were looking £1200 as well :o

I love those steering wheels 8-)

It would be too irresistible for me if it was a sinker ,good job it isn't :( pretty decent condition aswell...and for a woman driver too :lol:

I find cars over here ridiculously overpriced for the condition,any cars i buy in the future will all be British :lol:

Are you getting the white Cx ? 8-)

Yeh I was gona say, that price is a bit steep. Usually the only overpriced old Citroens on this land come from Robert's place :lol:

Yeh you have it bad with VRT, I couldn't live with that. How much would it cost you to take the likes of a Xantia or C5 V6 from here to there???
