No plans to buy a car today when I woke up this morning… 

But… here I am driving a vehicle I have exchanged monies for home from Liverpool… 

 

PC: 1 (prior to the decision) 

Its Silver…

Spontaneous vehicle acquisition is a serious condition.

Good luck!

Sometimes you need to move fast!  As the Japanees record collector Neal Tanaka once said. -I see, i want, i buy!

Well, my guess is a silver Citroen CX Diesel.

So far so good on the collection mission… 

It won’t be staying long. But it seems good so far!

Ok, so the tale of the purchase.

A very good friend can only drive an auto, and has been looking for a more economical vehicle due to a bit of a change in circumstances. We saw this on marketplace late last night and thought

a) this ticks the box for our friend and she has agreed to buy it from us. 
b) it has a numberplate with the initials of a family member and this would make a good birthday present for them…. (Shhh it’s a secret). 

Messages exchanged this morning, and a run to Croxteth was arranged to view said vehicle and on viewing it seems good… 

Genuine low miler, clean and drives lovely, got superb MPGeees on the way home, few bodily marks and the glove box lid is missing, but other than that, absolutely spot on. 
 

So… now to hide it from said family member until the V5 is through, swap the plate for its existing one, then swap it with their existing car… and then sell that.

One in… and then out… soon.

A 1.6 HDi automatic. On Facebook Market Place. In Liverpool.

Have you thought about a career as a lion tamer?

Never mind I still love any 1st gen C4, they are super quirky Citroens from the central backlit digital dash and fixed hub steering wheel to the rounded silhouette of the exterior.

Fun Fact the roof of the 4 door and Coupe (two door) is the same even though they look quite different.

It’s surprisingly endearing actually. I really like the interior/dash…

Are these proper torque convertor auto's or some robotised manual?

I think robotised manual… it has flappy paddles… 

Also….

The mats, they were the real clincher…

Can confirm robotised manual, with only moderate borkage potential

Sprog has the later version C4 base model - it's a rather pleasant, simple car and drives nicely. However it has managed to lose any sort of unique look and blends into the masses whereas - this generation C4 is much better looking.
Good buy
