C5 by Carlsson

Post by C5_Jack »

Hello All

Does some knows where I can get hold of body parts from a 2010 C5 by Carlsson?

I am looking for the chrome bar fitted to the boot lid

Cheers

You're talking about the chrome strip shown here?

Yes :)

I think it looks very nice and matches the chrome band around the car

There are similar stick-on products (3M), also chromed, that you can easily buy online, I'd say the Carlsson's one is also a stick-on, not bolted/clipped to the boot ..

That's a good looking C5! Did Carlsson do anything to the power of the cars or was it all cosmetic?

I've found this, but my German isn't good! http://www.carlsson.de/carlsson/en/comp ... rlsson.pdf

All cosmetic, unlike the previous version where they upgraded the V6 petrol from 200 odd bhp to about 24n bhp.
No sure about the exact spec

I don't know the in and out of the Carlsson's C5

The modification to the V6 were also available without the bodykit and there are very rare cars.

You will have to dust your French or German to fin out more.

Are you looking into modifying your Xantia?
