  1. Wow, this sounds fantastic. Best of luck. Even if there are troubles on the way, when you do make it home under your own power it will feel like a wonderful achievement.
  2. Great news. I love BXs, they were my first hydraulic Citroen and have had 3 and always got a soft spot for a C15 too.
  3. Hi, Are any AS members going to the CCC National Rally? I shall be there on the Saturday. If so, feel free to say hello. I will be in my Citroen C6, C6 FED.
  4. At the time of the Vel Satis, the Espace was still being made by Matra. I don’t think the Vel Satis has anything to do with the Espace at all. The Vel Satis is pure Renault. Personally I found the Avantime to be a massive let down in ride compared to the C5 Mk. 1 and C6. Hopefully the Vel Satis isn’t so jiggly. I too would like to have a blast in a Vel Satis one day but (again personally) the styling doesn’t do it for me. They are very cheap when they do come up though!
  5. That is quite a looker (weird extra decals aside)! Happy camping!
  6. Saw this for breaking in Dudley, in case you need some bits. It’s even in your colour! Not sure which Diesel engine it has though. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/citroen-c5-estate-breaking-/402973576207?mkcid=16&mkevt=1&_trksid=p2349624.m46890.l6249&mkrid=710-127635-2958-0
  7. Best of luck! Defecation count is too much information IMHO too.
  8. Sadly “north England” is a big big and vague isn’t it!
  9. You’re not alone Rich, I am also here with a C6, Petrol powered bankrupting monster.
  10. Sorry to be be pedantic but you either had a Turbo or an ES!
  11. Haha no chance with rear lights from there these days. The only real option is to repair your own by polishing or cutting them up and replacing the outer plastic lens with those on sale only from the French 480 Club for about £300-400 with shipping. Pretty much any second hand unit will be trashed or approaching the cost of the new French lenses anyway. For the DRL lenses you can buy these from a guy in NL. You have to cut your old ones up and glue the lenses on. Think of it like a starter project for the rear lights. I haven’t been brave enough to chop my rear lights up yet but I do have the new keys lenses ready to go. Join us at Volvo 480 Club Europe forum for help and answers. The Facebook page is just full of idiots asking the same questions over and over again. I would hold off on buying a new headlight motor as it probably can be revived by running it and for a good amount of time. Instructions on the forum.
  12. Wow, sorry to see this and glad you are okay. I wonder what it was.
