And it has all the toys too. Electrics air con alloys tints etc. Nice little car but out on the test drive I'm glad I don't own one now and I have the comfort of the hydraulic c5!

Oddly enough Davie, I find mine is fairly comfy for what it is. But then again I'm only little and the seats fit me perfectly...

I can tell you a C1/107/Aygo is a damn sight more comfy that a Poxhall Aguila :)

I was ok in my own one before my back went. Even though I've got this bionics in it still jiggled me too much. It has better seats than my urban lite had.

My C5 and Shaun's 107 getting acquaintedImage
Pity about the disastra across the road. I can stomach ultra blue ones, but star silver?????

You could have photoshopped out the offending (offensive) vehicle :wink: :lol:

How's Shaun getting on with the 107 Davie?

Keep the C5, Davie. What other car is so kind for your back, and that does not require a massive effort (comparatively speaking) to keep it on the road? Plus, it looks good!

I'm toying with the idea of another c4 but just really toying, don't think it will happen. Shaun is rather taken with his 107 it's nippy up to a point and it will do him grand. Worse than the Astra there's a BMW there too. Think my phone has broken[emoji48]

Shaun drives a 20 ton cat loader at his work. That would fix an astra and a BMW at the same time, and his house if he moaned[emoji48] [emoji1]

Delighted Shaun is happy with the 107 Davie :-D

Apart from the white C5 it's the best car in the street by far :wink:

I agree completely Jim. There's not a car in the street I would even consider. Across the road has two bmws, the 318 saloon you see in the photo and a m3 coupe. I would have a shot of it in the winter so I could do a donut and reverse into a tree. That would be one less[emoji48]

Starting to get rid of the cars belonging to shaun. The donor escort he did not need, it had 4 months test sold for £70 more than he paid for it, the other escort we are keeping cos we both actually like it so it's a spare car between us, the fiesta needing an engine I am working on him to scrap or ebay for spares as the cheapest engine we can find is 200 +vat and 400 +vat to fit it plus probably a clutch timing belt water pump etc so not worth that for a 53 reg fiesta no matter how tidy it is. His puma he can't insure is advertised just now, hopefully get money back. I had a blast in it the other day and what a real pocket rocket it is and surprisingly comfy. Full leather heated seats I'm actually tempted to insure and tax it for me. The c5 is due road tax anyway so really tempted to sorn it and run the puma for the winter. It would save me taking the dash out of the c5 to fix the heating!

For once i get to say something about the C5. Which means something has got wrong with it[emoji35] The last 3 starts it has beeped and lost the power steering. Today it has confirmed the problem by refusing to start. I have a new battery in the shed so stuck it in and normal service resumed [emoji3] However it is not really big enough for the car so as I have breakdown insurance cover tomorrow the old one will go in call the AA and ill get a new one off the insurance.

Losing the power steering is unusual Davy. Unless yours has an electric pump for that?
