    Default C6 owner makes a real impression.

    This ad caught my eye, I was curious if the previous owner was lurking here.

    Worth a read.

    Very funny.

    There could be several people on the forum who measure up closely to that description.

    Ex NSW car judging by the invoices!

    That said, I'd hate to see what they were offered for a trade in. Remember, they were 110k brand new!

    As soon as I saw the fastidiously maintained bit, I immediatly thought of Double Chevron Shane. Is that one of your old cars, mate?

    Your joking right ...... You have seen the dodgy, half fixed buckets of merde I drive right :rolmao: They have probably spent more on the C6 in one "normal" service than I have on all of my cars combined in the last 5years

    Lorbeks I'd say. I'd kill to know why not one of the 100 cars they have in stock are registered. Highish kilometres but not a bad colour combination. I'd say you could buy better than this if you judge lower kilometres to be better. The way it's going C6s will soon be really good CX money...

    seeya,

    Shane, I'd suspect the depreciation alone in the next year or two would exceed your spending and mine on all cars combined for the last 5 years. This, even at a low price of $36K (which is an average of about $10K depreciation per year since new ). Then there are service costs...

    From all accounts they are lovely cars, and sure look good close up, but rather more to go wrong than a C5... I'm still waiting for my first ride or drive in one.

    Cheers

    I agree that a lower k car would be a much better deal.Think there was one a while ago -under 100 k for similar $$-You may like to do a search.

    I would be very surprised if a C6 Cit was not impeccably serviced-BUT I would also double check with past owner & verify service record as it is easy to buy an appropriate stamp to dodgy records.

    A few years ago late model, low km XM's were 20-30K just like C6's now. You can now have a low km XM for 10K and they look great in silver.

    I hear C6 is a very very good car. And Used one is so cheap! I think problem is that no dealer can service it? Thats why so cheap? Citroen in OZ is doing business very very badly. I feel as they will phase out from OZ like it happened in USA?

    They don't bother renewing the rego so they can put 12 months rego on for the buyer, common practice.
    My wife discovered the C6 the other day, saw a dark blue one in Canberra, and fell in love with them. Not enough to buy one mind you, she just bought a new Pulsar.

    Irsa... do they put the 12 months reg on for the love of the customer. Or at the customers expense? I reckon they have a policy of de-registering cars before they make it into the showroom. A lot are from interstate. For some reasons cars seems cheaper in NSW. Not sure if this is across the board or just at the wholesale level.

    Regards

    I've always found cars that little bit cheaper in NSW even at retail. Nor sure if it's the historically higher income that allows people to change over more often creating more used cars, or the annual roadworthy checks that encourage those that can afford it to turn over their cars more often. And depreciates their value to zero quicker than elsewhere.

    I've also been told (but never looked into it myself) that cats are cheaper in Canberra too. All the public servants salary packaging cars turning them over every 2-3 years.

    Customer would end up paying for the rego, even if it's hidden in the cost of the car.
    The reason why NSW appears cheaper would be due to rego/stamp duty differences, same with the ACT.
    It's actually usually cheaper to buy anywhere BUT the ACT due to local dealers all being owned by the same mobs, I say that knowing I just got $10k off the price of a new Pulsar for the wife, granted 2013 build but that's a non issue.

    I love the C6. On my lottery list for "car that I'd use for crusing freeways"

    Gotta check out business finance options. Might make a great company car, and leave me free to do the full Mini JCW GP conversion to the DS3.
