    I went from a 205si to a VW Beatle, to a mazda121 and then to my 206xr, next I am getting a 206GTi (or a GTi180 if I can get the loan I need).

    So 2 French cars so far

    I nearly bought a 2002 BMW, but instead bought a mazda121, I dunno why but at the time it seemed like a better option.

    Beauty is after all in the eyes of the beholder.....

    A very very tough question...

    It's like asking a man to name the most beautiful woman he's ever woken up next to.... (as opposed to gone to sleep with of course...!!!)

    After an R10; R12; R16; R19; P504; P505; Cit BX and Three Cit GS's all I can say is I can't wait for the C5HDi wagon to arrive...!!!

    Sorry shane but the CX Turbo is mutton dressed as lamb compared to a C5 like comparing an aging and faded movie star......

    Hey Jackz,

    I'm impressed, I'll put you down as the first person that's ever actually said they like the way a C5 looks.

    Actually I kinda prefer the very early CX's series I metal bumpers as compared to the series II plastic bumper CX's.

    there isn't a Citroen after the CX that I think even looks different or interesting, so I can't really comment

    Like I said, look after the C5 HDi for me, Ang needs a boring modern car to drive in a few years time, and I can't think of a car that fills the role better than a C5 HDi

    Only frog I've "actually" owned ... 206GTi ... but grew up with Citroen DS 21 and a Renault 12 and 18 ... have to say the DS gets the nod as the all time classic.

    For me it's the blue 403 I still own. The 404 is ( I think ) a better car, but the 403 is more beautiful.

    Of the ones my dad had, a toss up between the R16TS or the metallic green 504 diesel.

    Well I have choice between 3 Xsara's, a 5 door series 1, VTR series 2 and VTS series 2. Mmmmmm... I would have to say the VTS, it's the alloys and gold duco vs white.

    "Most beautiful..."?

    Not the best choice of word, I think. I wouldn't call a car like a 205 GTi "beautiful". A classic design, yes, well-proportioned, tuff, neat, agressive, subtle, maybe even "elegant"... but not beautiful. Some very attractive ladies are pretty, some are beautiful.

    As for me, I've owned a 505, an Mi16, and a 504, in that order.

    I think the "best looking" of the three would be the Mi16, a series 1 in white with 15" wheels. In my opinion the nicest looking Mi16 of all. But not beautiful.

    Hmm... maybe my particularly attractive 504 most qualifies for the "beautiful" tag...

    Enough waffle.

    Hmm,

    at least you can pick the BX out in traffic. I usually can't pick C5 wagons from any angle except the front. They look just like Crummydore wagons from all other angles. Xsara, ZX, AX, Xantia what a yawn ... The C3 at least actually looks kinda cute, a pitty most of it's competion sells a product that's probably more desirable.

    Maybe the C6 will be something exciting

    BTW: You guys sound like you need training, that black car above is an Australian built '63 ID19. Note: yes they were actually built in Melboune beside the Poogoes.

    Now those early cars are what Citroen is all about, I suggest anyone that possibly can grab a drive of one if you ever have the opportunity. Escpecially a late DS19. You will lose all interest in modern cars if you have the opportunity to drive one of these

    Absolutely my 1973 Renault 17 TL that I fully restored many years ago. It was bright yellow, and had the NSW number plate REN-073. I kick myself now for ever selling it. Has anyone ever seen it around?

    Most Beautiful cars I have owned???

    205GTi is eye catching but nothing catches the eye like my 1951 203. Not sure if thats just due to the looks or the speed at which I am passing them
