    Default Are Citroens territorial beasts?

    I was reading about a get together in the UK a few days ago by members of the Andyspares forum and saw an amusing comment by one who attended;
    "Obviously we made sure we marked our territory with a heathy sprinkling of LHM onto the tarmac, and played with the suspension a little ....which I thought was quite amusing & probably true.
    Andyspares.com are now beginning to socialise much along the lines of aussiefrogs with a stong mixture of characters and age groups and interests, and are even having to split meetings as they like us have a membership spreading the full length of the country. In contrast to us, the dominant marque over there is Citroen with the Peugeot section being made up mainly of Citroen owners who have bought a Pug as a second car or as a fill in whilst their Cits are being restored.
    The mental picture of the 'marking out the territory' I felt was quite well put.

    They only do it as they get older - less secure of their territory, or just less continent?

    I wonder if that's what they're doing when you see them being driven with one wheel off the ground?

    re LHM being sprinkled.
    I remember watching from my hotel balcony in Pas De La Casa in the Pyrenees the scene when all the duty free shops closed and everyone was car queueing to get back to France. People were pulling their cars to bits hiding cartons of cigarettes. I looked down upon an XM about to face 20 kilometres of downhill driving as the large spreading pool of green stuff flowed downhill from the waiting car. It drove off quite quickly when it could.
    I wonder if they died?
