Mrs6C would enjoy rushing to the station in an Ami with the rush hour traffic,  starting with a right turn onto a busy A road! 

It's hair-raising enough with the ZX... the main road at the top of our lane is really busy now, even in the school holidays. It's often only the well-timed HGVs on it, collecting the cars in a neat row behind, that give us the opportunity to pull out and turn right in a clear space of low-ish speed traffic... while keeping an eye out for the idiot who chances to overtake everyone at that point... :-(

 

The Alfa 156 and Volvo T5 are much better at a fast getaway, but only in the dry...

That drivers door locking solenoid unit is identical to Xsara, 306, 405 and I dare say numerous other PSA shite of the era.

I *must* have one somewhere...

the  zx c/l solenoid strictly speaking isnt cos its a control unit- it has 2 functions

  1. lock/unlock drivers door
  2. send signal to other doors/boot to lock/unlock when using key lock in drivers door

this is why it has the 5 connectors not 2
