When a group of them at the Ace Cafe (really nice rebuilds and obviously well loved by them) asked me if I fitted the Hydro-Active suspension myself I knew Citroen was lost :roll:
That doesn't matter. I doubt many Evo owners don't know that Mitsubishi also own Nikon cameras and Mitsubishi atomic Industry :-p

Ok Jim, on that basis, how's this for a start:
法国汽车论坛(在中国,伊拉克和摩洛哥制造)
:(
I'll leave you to translate it, what the hell type of flag would we have to go with it?? :shock:

Oh, look.. I've just seen Citroen's new owners signing off on the latest deal!

Not sure who the shady looking guy behind them is, he's probably from the Russian Federation trying to get a piece of the action!

And which topic exactly do you want me to comment? The fact that the RHDs X7s are done for? That doesn't bother me ... :D ... The chinese writing that says "France Automobile Forum (made in China, Iraq and Morocco)" (Google Translate It) ... :D ... the nuclear-active suspension? Don't care, I have springs ... :D ... Regarding sticky's enlightenment:

Yep, pretty much covered everything ... :P

Regarding the rack, it has been fitted today and the wheels aligned, I could've picked up the car today already, but left it for tomorrow when they'll replace the rear windows plastic trims with the chromed ones ... better for them to break the glass, than me ... :D ... and I've ordered all the required the wheel bolt caps, genuine ... when it's a party, why not go all the way ... :D

No, the car isn't china made, and it doesn't glow in the dark (although I would very much like to install the under body neon/led - not road legal, ok, but what the heck ... :D )

Oh, you refer to your cars as females? One of the thing you Brits are also weird with ... :D ... the noun "car" in croatian is a masculine gender (english language doesn't have "genders" in that sense), so we refer to cars as him or it ... never her (unless the car's name is female - Xsara i.e.) ... not actually, it was good that the car was away for a few days, so I can think about what to do to it next, in peace ... :D
