    Icon14 We're Officially 'Tri'

    TRI ???

    Advertisement


    This morning, we are taking delivery of a 1999 Citroen Xsara 1.8i 5 door hatch. Metallic blue, electric sunroof, auto(it's for Sue) perfect condition. Log books, c/belt been done in past 12 months. It was a good price too.
    Our daughter thought it was a new car, as the second one we were considering had the same milage, but was very tired looking both interiorly and exteriorly.
    I already have a couple of aussiefrogs stickers put aside for it.

    How many more 'tri' members are there???

    Heh congrats. A late model Xsara is a pretty good buy in my books. It's just a cheaper 306 with a better interior really.

    There aren't many that can complete the french trifecta! In Sydney there was Deka, but I think his sister sold the Clio recently.

    My sisters boyfriend has an R19 so we would often have it and the 307 and the BX parked next to each other outside. Then with the 2 GS's it started to look like a french car yard

    Strange....when I was taught geography in primary school it was drilled into me somehow that Sweden was part of Scandinavia and not Europe. Is Scandinavia part of Europe? Was I taught incorrectly? It wouldn't be the first time

    Congratulations. The early model Xsara's were a good car, nice to drive and a comfortable ride. The 2000 model I had was easily the most reliable of the Xsara's I have owned.

    Oh, I see you're talking about the SAAB

    ...pedantic barstool, mumble #@^&% mumble

    You may be right Brendan?? but speaking very generally I would pigeon hole the SAAB as Euro...

    Hey, hang on a minute.

    Did Sweden vote to be in the EU? You know....a.k.a. "European Economic Community" If so, they voted for it, the French against it so in these days of enlightenment, if this is the case, the GM Holden/Saab is Eurpoean, Doctors cars wih drivers in white towelling hats in later life aka Swedish Valiants are also European, der Krautvagen, Beemers and Audis are also European as are Seats (not chairs though) but Cits, Pugs and Renaults are French because they voted against it. DAFs become Dutch.

    Very confusing, very, very confusing.

    Default GPS and 6 stacker

    We have our new baby home. Mum and bub doing better than ever. We discovered she's not a normal child though. Someone has installed a VDO 6 stacker and a GPS stereo But it may only live a short time, as the dammed thing has inbuilt leadfoot alert. As soon as the car reaches 60km/h, warning bells and a nasty message appears on the screen telling you to obey speed limits.

    Can't wait for the next RCCQ or Aussiefrogs(i know it's a Cit) drive day ...follow me

    Shane, I still have my car to replace yet!...Sue doesn't like Cit CX's.
    It's a great little car, perfect for her needs, and a big step from the 505 wagons, 2 of which was all she had driven till now.
    The rear vision out of it is the only point I'd complain about, it's woeful, even for me!!
    The GPS is a bonus, even the dealer didn't know about it or I am sure it would have attracted a premium. I now have to find out a new price for insurance pruposes.

    Chris, that'd be great, but the RCCQ guys would linch me if I took anything other than the Renault.
    I can see a convoy with the Xsara leading the way, followed closely by R10 on trailer towed by Blue 505 . My entry bill will be a killer.
    (falls down though, because Sue wouldn't hang round too long. ) We would be one of the first Cit's for the first few hours though, till the majority get out of bed at around 11am
