Hello everyone!..... New owner!

Post by oilybox » Fri Mar 16, 2012 12:14 am

I am now what I suppose could be called a 'Citroenaut'... I've taken a giant leap, and collected my 1.9 n/a Meteor, and drove it the 215miles home, on approx £25 of diesel!.... And it's not slow by any means, compared to other non-turbo diesels I've driven before....(1.7 Vauxhall Astra).....well pleased with it!
