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 Of course, it's outdated, but the door handle is solid, for instance, and for the face-lifted C5 it was pretty bad.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 :)
