    My car

    Options on my C5:- Panoramic sunroof - lets in lots of light and passengers appreciate it. Navicom - useful extra but very bright at night – screen can be turned off but then pointless! Needs a dimmed night-time function. Parking sensor pack - I would have saved the money and bought just reversing sensors at half the price. Numb steering - the steering seems quite acceptable. Instruments and switches - the speedo can be difficult to read but you can show speed numerically in the dial which is fine - problem is when you set the instruments to 'night mode' they all go out except the outer ring of the speedo! Other dials fairly easy to read. Several buttons but fairly logically set out and I have got used to them. The NaviDrive voice recognition helps as you give verbal commands without being distracted from driving. Travel sickness - not felt the least bit queasy. May be the steel springs as opposed to the hydropneumatic suspension. Cramped rear seating - No complaints from the family. Size of alloys - personal choice but I think the standard ones look fine - might have gone for the 18" wheels but this would have been for the tyre pressure monitor than for the wheel design. Low speed turning lights bit of a gimmick but can be turned off. Plastic strips on loading bay floor easily scuffed and it would be good if the tailgate could be unlocked from the key fob. Car is on lease and as such is good value. It is different, stylish and comfortable.

    My car

    Just collected my c5 and what a car.had the 19" alloys witch make the car stand out and had the full leather and the car is the best i have drove.Had a good deal from bristol street motors in nottingham got a full tank off diesel and three years servising free.And got the car at what car guide price. The car runs like a dream and is so smooth on the road not much noise out side when you close the door thanks to laminated windows all round.The heater warms up straight away witch is good on cold mornings. Also keep finding lights in the cabin at night witch look fantastic This is my first citroen and hats off to the boys in france.not seen many on the road but im sure there will be after people have had there test drive becouse this is when you fall in love with the car.I also may be the only one with the upgraded alloys. not a bad price at £500 but thay have to be factory fitted.
