What MPG do you get out of that thing? Does it have Renault electrical gremlins aplenty?

Currently im getting around 25 around town, but thats using heaters, heated seats etc in this weather, when the weather warms up i will check and clean the egr valve as i should be getting ariund 30 round town, as for the electrics i am really surprised as everything works. Maybe i got a good one lol. But its a lovely place to be on a long cruise.

Due to a Very long day and much white spirit consumed on arrival home, I've been rather tardy in replying to PMs but have done so now. Apologies ladies.

A CX isn't everyone's cup of cha but once hooked, it's hard to ever again see a mode of transport in any other guise.

Citroensexuals will know what I mean.

Thanks for the interest.

I've a '79 CX that is for sale. It's got that weird Semi Auto box, which is actually rather nice tbf.

It's €3k and in Dublin. That's bottom dollar.....


Wonder if that CX collector in Hornchurch, Essex might have room for another C-matic? He has a 1975/6 one in black.

Fucksakes.  Everyone involved has my wholehearted, deepest and sincerest sympathies.  I had to deal with a seller like this last year and it was as irritating as it was heartbreaking.  And that was over a £300 car.


I'd, perhaps, consider leaning on him.  Tell him that expenses have already been accrued and you'd like to proceed, ask if there's anything you can do to encourage things along.  If it takes a few extra quid, perhaps it's worth it?  


Good luck.  Genuinely.

      This is a Wanted thread, but having no money I'm offering a swop.  Key for key, no cash involved.
      I want a Bedford CF.  It's over 30 years since my first one and I think well past time I repeated the experience.  Steel front rather than the later plastic grille; VX slant-four petrol engine rather than the Opel type, and absolutely NO DIESELS; preferably a plain van body rather than a camper or truck.  Oh and it needs to be legal and running fairly reliably.  Not like I'm asking for much!
      I'm offering the Giffer Rover.  It does have its own thread: http://autoshite.com/topic/28899-collection-of-yet-another-rover-accomplished/  I bought it blind off ebay last summer and it's a lovely car.  MoT is due in March but this is how confident I am: I'll put a new one on it if a suitable CF appears before then.  If the CF comes later, well the Rover will have a new ticket anyway.  It's a 2.0 auto with 42,000 miles up, and drives just as you would expect.
      If the van comes from further than about 150 miles from me I would very much appreciate being able to meet at some suitable common point to do the handover.  Motorway service areas or supermarkets with integrated cafes would be ideal.

      OK, maybe not entirely serious, but I clocked one round the corner from my house this morning and they look brilliant. Had been off my radar but small fuel efficient stylish estate and seem to be plenty of cheap ones about, presumably comfy and fun to drive in a french sort of way - what's not to like?
      1.4 petrol appeals with cheap tax/insurance/ulez friendly.
      I love my 205 but nine times out of ten the CR-V gets used for practicality reasons. One of these looks like being a bit more jolly and efficient, but equally practical...

      First my brother in law had a problem with his Volvo:
      Then, earlier this week, someone broke into his house, found keys to his BMW and drove away in this:

      There’s no way of knowing whether the BMW will ever be found.
      BIL now urgently needs a reliable automatic estate car, MoTd and running, for up to £1k and located as close to High Wycombe as possible.
      Does anyone know of a suitable steed?

      Bit of an SOS here. I've got a couple of item's I've won on eBay in far flung locations and my work shedule has conspired to make collection difficult. I'd hoped to collect them on some upcoming cross country trip but unfortunately my employer has other ideas....
      They have the flexibility to stand up the workforce to work 6 day weeks and have also extended our weekday working hours. They are blaming Brexit and trying to push production volumes as high as they can before the leave date.
      I've got two collections outstanding and was wondering if theres anyone local who could collect on my behalf and either post onwards, or sit on them until I'm able to collect. Happy to cover any expenses. Petrol / Post / Beer Money.
      The Items are industrial lights, 
      The first Item is in Prestatyn - The Seller has said collection from Chester is also a possibility, they are 3 Fluorescent tube lights.
      The second Items is in Lewisham, SE14 6QD, South london. And is a pair of explosion proof lights [ PLAN IN PLACE ]
      If your able to help please pm me.
