True, a V6 without h better economy than a 3 pot, but don't upset him, we don't want him crying into his organic gold top milk, you know sensitive he is...... :rofl2:

Need wider arches for those C6 wheels to fit but you might squeeze 15" Xantia exclusives in there :)

It might not be that practical, but a hoot to drive (once everything had been set up properly).

EDIT; Pick a spoiler, Steve!;

David, most interesting on the legal position when someone rear-ends you. Always worth knowing gems like that :wink:

I do like the plans you have for the C1... Perfect! Enjoying it immensely :-D

I reckon with a mid-mounted V6 and an LPG tank there's be only just room in it for a little one like me...

I don't believe it, sorry. This was not my experience when my mint MKII Golf GTi got written off by being rear ended. Yes, it was their fault, but the insurance company, legal protection or not were not interested in repairing it. They gave me *way* over market value for it, but they were never going to repair it.

Quite frankly, looking back, I think they were right to refuse to. Many people complain about high premiums... spending £2500 or more repairing 15 year old cars with, in all seriousness, a market value of less than a grand, and not a lot more to an enthusiast only adds to the ridiculous premiums we already have to pay.
