Citroening, I applaud your spotting. I must put the camera in the car, iPhone is useless.

Can the iPhone (4) camera settings be tweaked at all? Old man complains it lacks somewhat.

Blue Xantia in carpark is a perfect example of what happens when people stuff the ride height while changing front LCA bushes...

Some very nice pictures again Franklin, is that bottom one at a Citroen specialist?

Get that air freshener removed from the C6 at once! Criminal :lol: Invest in some new Citroen in-dash smellies. :roll:

The only option is to change from the iphone to any one of hundreds of better phones.
Steve Jobs doesn't want you taking decent photos (or using it in your left hand) ;)

You must have seriously acute eyesight Chris - all I can see is the hat they have nicked from Kieth Sunter :)

My HD2's camera is decent too, running either Windows Mobile 6.5 or Android (although they haven't got 720p video recording in Android working yet, just SD recording)

Yes, it's our friends that are Citroen Specialists. It's called "Tony Weston Citroen Specialists" and is run along with his son, Andrew. Tony's other son Dom is also joint CX Section Registrar with me. Good friends and they have a lot of Citroen's.

:lol: That was from when dad took it to the "Lithuanian's" for a quick valet - they do a deal in that you have a free valet after so many so dad used the free one on the C6! :D

I prefer to clean my cars myself, but for £13 for a valet on the other for sale cars it's good value and not bad quality too.


My phone camera's medioca - a little 3.2mp on my Samsung Galaxy Appollo with Android but for anything else I use the Nikon.

Can't beat an android system...wouldn't be without it. 8-)


More spot's from today to follow later...including a mint-looking Peugeot 309 GLD Turbo. 8-)

Oh right, I do know who you mean.

Getting someone else to valet a car .... not a bad idea :roll: There is so much satisfaction in doing it yourself though.

Time's the thing though - dad just hasn't got the time to do it and he can just pop down the garage (just down the road), and with about 5 of them on it they're done in no time at all.

Not for the show cars though, as he'll detail and do them himself - it's the little bits that count with the detailing.

Spotted car pics uploading ATM...
