    Would that not be a natural competitor for Froggyfrogs.com?
    Now there's a website name to squat on, should it be hitherto unregistered!

    I wonder whether they will allow forthright user complaints about product and importer concerns?

    That site is no good to me. I can't swear in French.

    If it works it will probably go global and that includes English.

    I predict it will be all froth and bubble and full of marketing hype. Serious discussion of anything older than 5 years will die in the butt or politely disappear. With AF, FCF, CCC UK and a couple of other sites out there any startup of a new forum is probably overkill

    I wonder how many hundreds of thousands of people will join just to say "Make something decent with hydraulics to put a Citroen badge on" If we wanted bumpy thumpy crap we'd buy a poogoe.

    And then those comments would quietly disappear.

    It has actually started:



    Avenir de la suspension Hydropneumatique

    Bonjour,

    Ayant possédé : DS, ID, GS, BX et CX, je suis actuellement propriétaire d'une C5 HDI 110CV. C'est une voiture fiable, sobre et d'un confort exceptionnel grâce à sa suspension Hydropneumatique.
    Je suis très surpris que pour la dernière serie de C5, cette suspension ne soit qu'une option et seulement pour les hauts de gamme. Je suis fortement déçu que la DS5, ni aucune autre voiture, n'en soit pas pourvu.
    Pouvez-vous, Messieurs les nouveaux Dirigeants de la marque, me préciser le sort que vous réservez à une telle merveille de technologie ? Qu'en penserait André LEFEBVRE qui en a été le concepteur ? N'oubliez pas, Messieurs, que cette suspension et tous ses périphériques (freinage, boites de vitesses hydraulique) est le fleuron de la marque depuis 1955.
    Pour ma part, désireux de rouler dans une voiture au confort inégalé, je changerai, en fin d'année 2014, ma C5 pour une C5 Hydractive. (Cette date de fin 2014 devant, parait-t-il, malheureusement sonner le glas pour cette suspension).
    Que les adeptes de cette technologie se joignent à moi pour en discuter.

    J'attends de la Direction de Citroen, une réponse. Merci à tous
    Pierre Fiasson


    This Guy is asking the current directors to provide an answer as to why they will produce car with NO hydraulics from end 2014.
    He is putting them on notice to provide an answer as to what gives them the right to renege onwhat has made the success of Citroen around the world.

    Will keep you posted on the reply.

    Thanks Phillippe,

    He's been remarkably polite while addressing an event that has many people feeling emotions between sad puzzlement and outright anger.
