  1. So sorry to read this, Ken.
  2. I found they felt cheap and plasticky and the whole touch screen thing was unwieldy and awkward. Added to that that they didn't drive or handle half as well as the previous model and were pig ugly. Other than that.........😁
  3. The early part of this thread reminds me of all the stuff I used to rent out when I worked in car hire. All brand new at the time, but some more shit than others. The worst, by a long way has already been mentioned. The Nissan Primera from 2002 on. Second place being the Peugeot 307. Bear in mind these were brand new cars when I drove them, and they were fucking awful. I would honestly rather drive a 1.8d na Escort than one of those Primera.
  4. Decent result, that. Should be a tolerable workhorse for you.
  5. Doom blue. Pov spec. Gingercators. https://www.facebook.com/groups/176622142477438/permalink/1985517598254541/
  6. Can confirm these are a decent steer. Mine needs a bit of fettling, mainly.ly a thermostat and the wheels painting silver or grey. Enjoying driving it, though it doesn't seem to be as quick as I'd imagined it might be!
  7. I only got as far as "Jersey," and "off the road for decades" I can only see a world of undiscovered grot, hard to find parts and an end result of a pretty, but undesirable car. Buy it, if you like it, but personally, I can't see any profit at all.
  8. So, lockdown, and not renewing my motor trade insurance, have significantly reduced my shite activity. However a couple of weeks ago, I treated myself. Mrs S said its a hairdressers car and one of my colleagues thinks I'm having a midlife crisis. I like it, though. 225bhp quattro, in good order with a decent wedge of history. Coupke of niggles to sort, and those wherls need to be painted, but otherwise not bad. Bonus green liquid Citroen licker reg number!
  9. I can confirm that de-catted 1*2s are for winners. Remove now, and keep for MOT time. Security and performance!
  10. Both valid points to be fair! It's a bit dull, but could be made better. Tobe honest, though, you'd probably be pushed to get a constant 55mpg unless you drive like Miss Daisy, which sort of defeats the brief somewhat.

  12. Every time I come back to this thread, I regret selling my 172. I hope it's being looked after, @DialATune Let me know if you want to sell!
