That`s a cracking description and stands out from the normal `say as little as possible and don`t mention all the faults` type. Good luck selling it, don`t think you`ll struggle because the car and the description will sell it alone.

What an excellent listing. If I was in the market for another Citroen I'd give this one serious thought. Good luck, mate. O:)

:?: Strangely, this Citroen / Reg:RE23 NAB as pictured does NOT show up on the DVLA online check. Considering it's claimed to have 4 months tax :shock:

This site seems pretty comprehensive for known cars both on and off the road that I've checked.

Something fishy perhaps :?:

Nothing fishy - just your eyes playing tricks, I guess: The reg. no. is: R223 NAB, and it does appear on the DVLA. So no problems - as if there would be - as we know the seller! :wink:

Sorry Kitch, did not twig that was your own car. What a shame to have to move it on! :(

I'd normally agree Ian, but what is it actually worth :?:

Most Activa's on there go for dick-all these days, I firmly believe this one is far nicer but its a buyers market.

I know someone who wants it, but how far I can trust him I don't know....so I told him to enter his £400 cash offer as a bid.....we'll see if he does :lol:

I am planning to keep my car for as long as possible, looking at resale values is just depressing, look at the 1.9TD that Cavmad is after, the potential for a really nice motor with very little work, I watch that one with interest.

Aye Stewart but I sort of get the feeling that it will go through the roof, a lot of interest in it it would appear. However I won`t get drawn into a silly bidding war with someone who wants to go too mad on it. You have to know your limit, a bit like I`ve tried to do tonight with my alcohol content but crashed and burnt :lol:
