And just turned 40, so none of that tax/MOT malarkey......it's on Irish plates, will it still have to be MOT'd as part of UK registration process?

Oh god! Do you know what you’re getting into?
I’m not being a franco killjoy, as someone who’d have a rust free cx as a daily car tomorrow, but is the gearbox oil still available?

Edit - my first car was a 2cv, my second a (manual) CX Pallas. How’s that for a culture leap!

I think Total T is still available from the Citroën car club.  I wasn't a huge fan of the C-matic to be honest, but it definitely adds an extra je ne sais quoi to what is already a fascinating vehicle.

 

Excellent purchase!

It is.......and there's a green fluid pervert lurking in Maidstone, just up the road from me where I can get it fettled, if need be.First thing it's going to get is comprehensive rust treatment..........

Great then, enjoy the experience! I did have a few spares left, but managed to give them away at last year’s GSA rally.

If you’re new to CXs watch out for a leaky de-aeration chamber ( black bottle thing next to the reservoir). It was £4.50 last time I bought one, but I doubt citron sell them now.
I don’t think that year has a problem with oil pressure switches but they’re not a bad glove box spare for £5.
And if the heater fan stops working it’s either the resistor pack in the air intake trunking or a break in the wires under the central console below the aircraft style levers.
Good luck, I’m envious!
