    Default C3 where to get it serviced? (syd)

    Hi,
    I just bought a c3 a few months ago.
    I live in northwestern sydney, (dural) and was wondering wheres the nearest/best place to get a warranty service done?
    I want to make sure the sensodrive firmware is upgraded too - i heard this improves the gearchange? I must say i'm VERY unimpressed with sensodrive.

    I searched the forums and i've heard that continental is good?

    I have heard Continental is terrific - but the ONLY other place that comes with impeccable recommendations is Paradise Garage at Rosebery. They service, but don't sell Citroen. They have looked after my C5 for years, and I have never had such committed, caring competent service. The Service Manager;s name is Reuben. I use Greeen Square station

    You'll have to go to Continental's if you want the software update... As they have access, non dealers don't.

    Continentals is top notch, i have had a pleasant experience with them over the years (2 cars).

    I just bought a xsara from continental.
    Their service is fantastic, they're great guys and really know their stuff.

    There is a citroen dealer in killara (i think they are moving to roseville, they've got large signs painted on their windows to that effect).

    However i still would recommend continental. When i was looking at buying the xsara, they organised me a test drive in hornsby to save me the time travelling. They really do all they can.

    I live in hornsby and it's not too bad a drive down ryde road providing you don't go peak hours. i'll be going back to them for all my services /etc.

    Paradise Garage has the Proxia equipment too, and does software upgrades.

    All my work has been done under warranty - so I can't tell you. They are mates with continentals - they have the same service ethic.

    Thats interesting as mine has always been done under warranty. Wonder what happens after the warranty runs out?
    How do they charge for this?
    I think Ill let David Collier deal with all this when I take my car for him to service?

    In the end... ended up just getting it serviced at my local mechanic, got them to order citroen parts from EuroParts. South sydney is just toooo far.

    They've always done my Xantia with great expertise.
