Ever since the regrettable departure of the former @MrDuke Xantia from my life (as seen here in this thread), I've been craving some Citroen hydropneumatic waftiness.
So I've finally done something about it and gone out and bought this.
A bit of a shed bodywork-wise (pic is flattering), but it's got a full and reassuring service history, drives lovely with the 160bhp diesel engine, and generally offers all the barge-tastic vibes one would expect. Done 123k miles so only just run in m8, etc.
Being a 2012 model, this is the most modern car I've ever owned - and my first experience of an electric handbrake (initial opinion: utterly pointless, especially with a manual gearbox). But it also has a few more useful toys for my long journeys and the ride is obviously joyous.
One thing making me a bit nervous as a total amateur in the mechanics department, is (please don't laugh but...) this will be the first car I've ever owned that doesn't have a Haynes manual written for it. Anyone know if any similar alternative exists?
