Hi Folks...
Had French cars as daily drivers for many years...
Consider the diesels very reliable and done well over 250k on previous 1.9 and 2.0 diesels..
Until recently steered away from the new generation of HDI engines... but had to succumb....
I was on another Forum, but found the delays in posts having to be read a pain....
Plus changes in their set up meant I would be unable to log in till they fixed it.....

Well almost stripped the car to sort a problem... which was a great into to the new set ups...

Will be looking at doing a Cam belt at some point in the future and may even buy another...

Plus may end up sorting my sisters C1

hope to ask many questions that may be of help to others and provide details accounts of my findings..

Hi BigVtwin and 8-) :welc:

Use the board index link above and have a good look round the forum. There is plenty to find both technical and entertaining so drop in to The Off Topic Lounge or TOTL as we call it and post a picture or two up on the Picture of the Day (POTD) thread and you will almost certainly get more responses than you bargained for. Ask anything you like, usually by starting a thread in the appropriate area! They are a great bunch on here and you will be glad you moved over. Cheers
