I loved my BX estate, what a fab car - until I ploughed into a milk tanker at Silsden :-)
My C5 is an "Exclusive" it cost me bugger all and it has all the toys - leather seats, built in satnav, CD Changer, them really fab bright blue headlights, cruise control, aircon, a thing for keeping your sunnies in, it's the smoothest ride in Britain (fnarr fnarr) and whereas others arse about with citroen engineers I just plug in my Lexia3 and the laptop does the rest. The electrics are really reliable and the engine just goes on and on.
I have done 60,000 miles in the past two years in all weathers and all I've bought is a cambelt, 3 litres of FAP Eolys, a second hand swinging arm and some drop links. £400 quid all in! For the two MOTS I have bought £27 quids worth of brake shoes. It's a 2.2 HDI (and yes it has the fap) which returns just under 50mpg on an average dash down the A9 etc. and 43 round town.
The car cost me just under £3k from a local dealer and I reckon it owes me nowt. It now shows 105k on the odometer and I expect to add another 50k before I donate it to a local farmer for his chickens.
She's called Sophie after the first French HST (wasn't the other Patrick?) and if you break a leg at worldnet you'll probably travel in her to the LGI without noticing the atrociously maintained English roads :-)
