    Default XANTIA CT Turbo happy online purchase.

    It is always a risky proposition fraught with perils to buy a car unseen & tested online, despite a mass of photos.
    My recent experience of buying my '98 Xantia CT Turbo from Melbourne CitroŽn specialists Jim & Arthur Skapetis from "Darebin Tyre & Service Centre The Home of Cars of France" has been an absolute delight & pleasure.
    The car was advertised online unregistered with the option of a road worthy certificate at extra cost. All faults were described accurately over the phone & I opted to have them remedied ready for registration in NSW plus a replacement timing belt kit, ready for me to drive home on a unregistered car permit. Despite discovering the need to also replace the crankshaft pulley, no extra was charged, & the work was done at around half retail cost, was ready on time & picked up the following day after a couple of minor details were attended to.
    The car sailed through the strict NSW road worthy test last week with NO faults recorded.
    The 1,415 Km trip home to Coffs Harbour was a joy, consuming 110 Ltrs 98 fuel, an average of 7.6l/100 [37mpg], with an actual travelling average of 96 Kmh.
    Jim & Arthur come across as being very keen & knowledgable,& from my experience, I can't recommend them too highly.
    They have an assortment of Xantias, a C5, & a DS21 automatic for sale .

    Nice to know there are trustworthy Citroen sellers and yes the CT is a rather special and lovely car.
