Sorry, the sight of a polished C6 always makes me come over all lyrical, like.

Is this the right side of the VED date limit, or does that just affect the 3litres?
It looks lovely, and I'd have it in a shot at that price and spec ( ignoring my Citroen mechanics) but I have no intention of getting rid of the w124 merc.

I showed this to a Mate who is having problems with the 7 speed gear box on his CLS.  he has lost £10K in depreciation and £10K in repairs over 3 years and 60K miles.

 

He says "My balls are not big enough for a C6"

No, its a big tax tax one, so £200 a year more than a pre march one. £200 is £200, but its alao less than £5 a week... On the grand scheme of running a 10 yr old c6, a £5 er a week may well be neither here nor there....

SENSIBLE WORDS!

 

Okay, so i keep meaning to drop in on this thread, I've had two C6s. One I had from 15 miles old, and one was Keith's one at 126K. Both 2.7, mine was grey with cream leather and lounge pack (but no bloody sunroof), Keith's was a Lignage with some extras to make it like an Exclusive but with folding rear seats.

 

Mine was horrible because of the dealers, but fantastic to drive long distances. You will not find anything as refined for sensible money - and they ride well, though later ones got better software. Brakes aren't confidence inspired - it's a 407 in a fat suit, so they're working hard. Objectively the C5 is the better car and the C6 needed the fixed-hub wheel and updated climate/nav setup of the C5 badly, but never got it. However, the C6 looks like nothing else, the active headlights are a joy...

 

What opened my eyes was how good Keith's was. Mine was new, had worn balljoints by 22,000 miles, a horrible dealer not wanting to do anything right and doing some things wrong, it was a depressing experience. Keith's car, coming from the perspective of "banger C6 ownership", was a very different thing. I took it to Scotland and back, drove it in Nottingham car parks without fretting, as a £3K proposition it felt much, much better than a £30K one. And very little had gone wrong, much less than had gone on my E39 BMW with fewer miles on it. I think I got a bad car new and had expectations for a £30K car, not a £30K Citroën - I'd probably have been much happier with a less flashy Mercedes.

 

Cambelt and so forth aside (find a specialist, get it ALL done, forget for another decade) they aren't badly made and don't feel ready to fall apart like, say, an XM does. You feel detached and superior driving them - the HUD helps - and people comment more now than they did when mine was new (almost 10 years ago...).

Be brave.

Your keen parking that on the road with no tax or test, they would want back tax of you if the van saw you.

It's a lovely looking thing and i don't think I've eyeballed one in the flesh.

£500 quid for tax fookers they are.
