Grab the grille off the front as well. The chromed one will look nice on your car and are quite rare. (I've been after one for ages!)

Hi,
me too I am very happy with my meteor....the interior of the meteor is nice....although I would prefer the old style 1 spike steering wheel, which seems much more citroen
good luck with the seats

I have two Meteors - hence my moniker. They are both Mercury grey 16TGS with the nice black and red pinstripe interior and the sporty steering wheel - which I prefer to the large single spoke jobby myself!

One is my everyday car, the other probably will very sadly never return to the road. It's bodily very good, but it's not turned a wheel in anger since blowing its head gasket in a big way back in 2004. It languishes in my mother's garage on a SORN ticket. Apart from basically needing a new engine, it also needs a new clutch, rad, front brake pads/discs and the heater control is seized through disuse.

Too much at this current time, what with a restored GSA to keep on the road!

BTW PrutsyLJ, I bought my everyday Meteor over to EuroCitro in Utrecht earlier this year!!

Cheers,

Mark.
