When a well known 2cv parts ran into trouble and was bailed out the new partners insisted the stock was strictly 2cv related.

There was an enormous stock of other Citroen parts and i offered to help with the stock take and was given an awful lot of stuff for free. I only paid for the struts which considering i had a Cavalier boot full of BX bits was pretty good.

Still on the Auto - I had the O/S bearing done in Nov 2005 - just lost the receipt... I was told it needed doing prior to the Dec 2005 MOT.

Nov 2005 is very recent --- you should be able to see a shiny new bolt down on the o/s arm to confirm it's new.
