A good swap Luke, go for it :wink:

As far as I can tell from some chats I've had with Robert, the Activa has much the same problem in the hydraulics department as Xac's Juliet.

A reconditioned pump may be needed for it and all should then be good...

Hi Jim,

Unfortunately they aren't all mine, the 2 x Gti CXs belong to a local Citroen enthusiast. They're here to get some MOT prep work done, and he is scared his wife will throw him out!

Ohh aye Luke I'll take the C5 for the Activa :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Now THAT'S what I like to see Robert! :D :D :D

Those Series 2 GTi Turbo seats (and doorcards) really are great! Don't see too many with the proper doorcards either!

...and to continue the theme if I may:

Can you spot all six in the picture?

I really want a series 1 GTi Turbo Franklin!

I first had a drive of a CX GTi Turbo last year, and ever since I have been hankering after one. I have driven this one a little today, and it was nice to be back in one. I would have one over a V6 Xm...

Possibly the best CX, the Series 1 GTi Turbo.
As you may know, CGOO has moved onto pastures new but we have unearthed ANOTHER Blue Romantique Series 1 GTi Turbo that is it's replacement that will be BETTER. Lower miles, more original and NO sunroof - B reg too. 8-)

You can't beat a CX GTi Turbo in the Series 1 or 2 guise - brilliant cars when they are right. :D

Now that is a car I am looking forward to seeing! It isn't a press car per chance?

Nope, not a press car but a fairly early car.
The best bit has got to be having no sunroof, which was always the 'thing' with CGOO. It's funny really, as it must have been fate that another came up - the even stranger thing is that it was situated less than half an hour's drive away! :shock: :lol:

:lol: That's because it's not here yet - picking it up the week before the National. Once we've finished with it, it will be better than CGOO.

XM pictures are on the horizon as I aim to finish the exterior cleaning this week as I've got some time free. If I've got time I'll also give my Activa another going over and some fresh pictures doing too. 8-)
