This is my Citroen C5 2.0 HDI 110hp from 2003, I have no idea what trim it is but it does not have that many options. I am the 3rd owner from new, 1 in France and another one in Romania besides me. It allegedly has 289000km on the clock, but I'm not sure I can trust that.

Here is the car parked at home.

Here is my best mechanic working on it.

And this one, this is complicated. Let's say I really like this type of water.

This is parked on the Romanian side of the Danube near Orsova.

And these pictures are from 2013, this is my first Citroen C5, it was a 2005 facelift mode with 2.0 16v 143hp petrol and it ok but we did not have highways back then so the top speed we were using the cars was maybe 100 km/h. It had about 85 000km on the clock. I have sold it when I got a company car as I was starting a job as a field technician. To be honest, I am not sure why but the older C5 seems to me better built. Of course, it's outdated, but the door handle is solid, for instance, and for the face-lifted C5 it was pretty bad.

This is somewhat the same spot my current C5 is parked.

My C5 this morning, first snow. Of course, wearing light "alloy steelies" with Michelin Alpin tires but you can't see that :)

Is this a fairytale? No, it's just that one day of snow we had in 2022 :)

I just looked out of my back window and thought it had been snowing - it is cold but I didn't think it was that cold.

It is cherry blossom falling.

Surprisingly there is something interesting in the photo.

The car has an identifier on it which was established in 1909 at the International Convention with respect to the Circulation of Motor Vehicles signed in Paris.

BG yes BG isn't Belgium...

Its certainly done a few miles getting to Northumberland

Plenty of BG's around the south east Neil, The influx of labour after they joined the EEC when we were still members has not fully waned yet!! :)

At least there will be people in that area that are willing to work!

Not many BG, PL, RO, SK or HU cars around these parts anymore...

Anyway, I can't remember if I posted pics of my C5 before
