    Attraction/Seduction have coil springs either with 1.6THP or 2.0HDi (RHH). Manual handbrake, halogen headlights, less bright trim etc..

    Exclusive versions have spheres, electric handbrake, turning Xenon headlights, more bright trim, additional airbag somewhere, possibly ambient lighting to set the mood! 1.6THP, 3,0HDi V6 plus various variants of 2.0HDi and 2.2HDi.

    All of these had a 6 speed auto.

    Be aware there are some 4 cylinder petrol (EW10) with Al4 autos out there. They were an entry level car before the coil spring cars arrived.

    And the Comfort models had the 2.0 120kW diesel with spheres, half leather/half cloth trim, halogen lights, less bright trim, electric handbrake (there were a handful of Comforts with a naturally aspirated 2.0l petrol engine).

    For a car that sold in relatively small volumes, the C5 had a bewildering array of specs available.

    The MY 2010 Comfort, unlike the MY 2008 Comfort, has no lumbar massage function, no heaters for the seats, no dipping mirrors in reverse and less options in the steering wheel menus for something, which I now cannot remember. My impression is also that the road noise insulation is not quite as good. What it does have still, over the exclusives, is the full leather steering wheel. I hate the idea of the exclusive steering wheel, with those metal segments.

    Possibly because the side windows are not laminated...

    Similar with our 308's. Same engine - same spec.

    2009 had acoustic insulation on the engine undertray - 2010 missed out on this
    2009 had acoustic insulation on the engine sump - 2010 missed out on this

    Not sure what other differences there are but the 2010 RHR sounds very metallic when driving - that typical diesel clatter - the 2009 a deeper tone and not nearly as noticeable and much more relaxing.

    PSA seemed to have wanted to save money at quite a few points between years around this time.

    Cheers

    Did the 3.0 HDi make it to Australia ? I've had a look a few times on Carsales and never seen one.

    Sure is a stonking engine !

    Cheers

    Awesome engine.

    Totally agree. I must say I didn't notice huge difference going from Halogens to those in my Ltd Edition, however I don't do much night driving. Swivelling headlights are worthwhile.
