    It is what 'real' cars should be like. Why do you think Rolls Royce have licensed it from Citroen. :-)

    I hope it turns out to be a real good'n. You'd be surprised just how much German there is in these voitures franÁaises. Eg, http://www.autonews.com/assets/PDF/CA42445328.PDF


    PS- Check the locking wheel nut socket is with the car. Then get a set of plain wheel bolts to replace them. Small cost to avoid an otherwise inevitable very nasty problem. Who in Oz steals Cit wheels?

    RACV cover on it, then a long drive tomorrow, eh?

    Give the moose test a crack. You'll be impressed.

    Well done! CitroŽn wagons have long been distance cruisers like no other.

    Don't be silly, where do you expect to find a moose in Sunbury?

    You never know - they can hide in the most moose-terious places.

    One of the things I love most about the BX and the 504. Getting out, and feeling like I've just spent an enjoyable afternoon in front of the TV!

    Nothing does a long distance run like a C5 (unless it's a C6). Comfortable, smooth and silent. The only thing that spoils the drive is keeping it from speeding.

    No arguments from me. The C5 has been a magnificent car. Supremely capable.

    That said, I have more trouble staying under the speed limit in the DS - no cruise control. I arrived home 10 mins before the GPS predicted last time. Comfortable & smooth, but alas not so silent.

    Had a 63 id for many years but the 85cx pallas is far more comfortable;probably due to having far more comfortable seats, your turn Shane,Andy.

    Just had the spheres regassed in the CX safari, the pressure was not down too much but still the initial drive after putting regassed spheres on is just sublime. The only thing that would make it feel smoother would be to throw a moose in the back.
