    Terribly jealous - the photos look great, and Shane, the car is looking a treat

    Next year will definitely be a goer... and maybe a bit of the raid, too...

    Hi Ash,

    long time, no see. It's good to hear from you again. So you still have the BX, CX and DS?? What about the Merc, where abouts is that at the moment??

    Hi Adrian,

    Were staying in a Motel with my parents at Broad beach (not that were would stay in an apartment that there paying for roll_lau ). I'm heading off back to Ballarat early tommorow morning. Next time we meet I'll let you take the CX for a drive (when I've fixed it's electrical problem.... Anyone have any commadore coils laying around that I can modify mallet whistle ).

    Shane,

    Ahh ok! Well safe trip home! I'm sure the CX won't prove to be any troubles, looks like you'll have to just drive it easy all the way back Going to be a nice long trip I'd imagine!

    A drive in the CX turbo will be great!! Not sure when we next be able to meet, Ballarat and Hervey Bay is a very long distance I will be going down to NSW at the end of the year, maybe I can spare a few days down at Ballarat? cheers!

    I'm sure there's plenty of commodore coils at wreckers, that's where most of them end up roll_lau

    Craig,

    XM was nice I am looking at getting one of those later on down the track perhaps. Very stylish wink

    But maybe I should upgrade to a D first? mallet

    Adrian,

    someone with style!! I'm sure Alan would approve of a 'D' in the yard (I'm sure he's getting sick of all the broken plastic, er, BX's around the place ).

    Get yourself a nice early DS19 for times when you want to do some 'sedate' cruising, and a CX turbo for times when you need to drag home lotsa spare parts cars (don't tell your mum I said that whistle ).

    On seconds thoughts, forget the CX turbo, it'd cost you a sh!+load in petrol as you'd never get your old man out of it's drivers seat dance dance

    roll_lau

    Well, everything you said contradicts what you have said previously on the board. That is - If you are to own a D you have to be prepared to spend a lot of money and time on it (both I don't have ), and CX Turbo's are few and far between.

    That's what I opted for a nice, problem free BX for the time being dance

    Adrian,

    D's are no more expensive than CX's, BX's etc... if you can do the work yourself. Just make your father a list of work that needs to be done to it and tell him to get to it !! roll_lau roll_lau Infact hide his home brew unless he does a certain amount of work on your car everyday (how's that for incentive tongue )

    D's are just like CX's, BX's etc... If you pay someone to do the work (especialy a lot of the Citroen 'specialists' around). It'll cost you the earth.

    A good example?? I had a girl email me last year asking about D's. She needed to get rid of hers as it was costing so much in maitenance. She just spent several thousand doing up a 4spd manual gearbox in it. THE 4SPD MANUAL GEARBOX!!! These things are indestructable!! I have about 4 in the shed & would've GIVEN her one. As would most poeple that have a few D's wrecks (given her one that is). That's a Citroen 'specialist' for you I guess.

    You're married, Shane! You're not allowed to do that kind of thing anymore!! wink

    btw, the Merc did a timing chain and bent half the valves... Managed to offload it to someone with the time, space, and expertise to do it themselves. Let it not be said that I do not have bad luck when it comes to cars...
