Now here is quite a rare one i spotted

VTR sports back installed, and i spotted the mesh grille at the front

i imagine it looked very very weird for 2 red mk1's to be in a row these days!

Two C5 estates. The older one belongs to a local luthier and the X7 is mine.

Pretty ordinary photo of little artistic merit, but a spot of a C5 on the road (well in the car park!) and a reminder that there is a thread for a vast variety of subjects on the Off Topic Chat Lounge including "The C5 Gallery".

Join in with your own "brochure shots", on the road or in the car park spots. The C5 is now a pretty infrequent sight on the roads of Northumberland.

It is indeed. Saw an X7 a couple of days ago, first in months. Driving so no picture.

Every day, I keep spotting C5 mk1 all over the place, mainly in rather good condition. Followed a V6 for a few km this morning, which overtook the truck in front decidedly swiftly up a mountain B-road.

Is it possible the Mk1 has become a durable survivor, and will outlast the others?

Mine didn't, although my first one, which I assumed would be bean tins by now, is still pottering around.
Or was earlier this year, DVLA can't find it.
