Tell us a little about yourself, lie if you have to but keep it to just an introduction, not a car discussion.

It would have been denied, probably as a result of your reply to the justification question.
There are a lot of spammers attempting to register and an acceptance criteria is the justification.

Pleased you tried again and are in now, hope we can help.

A very warm welcome Lighty :-D Sorry if we deleted you first time around :oops: As Steve says, we are very hot on what we think may be spammer accounts and delete them immediately if we don't consider the justification sound. We used to give a bit of benefit of the doubt but almost always such benefit ended with a post offering to sell us handbags or shoes or some such... Now if a spammer was offering discount LHM we might be interested :lol: Never happens though..

Reading your posts you seem to know your way around hydraulic Citroens pretty well :-D

Looking forward to many interesting posts :wink:

Thanks for the welcomes, glad I got here in the end. Yea I know one end of a PSA vehicle from the other lets say :-D
As for cars I drive, crickey, I drive almost every day a C15 van with 260000 miles on it, and have another with about 230000. It is one of my favorite cars ever, so comfy and honest with no unnecessary extras lol .
I also have an Ami 8 that is lovely, the wife drives a Berlingo multispace HDI, it is superbly practical. I also have a BMW GS Adventure bike that reminds me of a 2cv coz of the flat twin.
I have honestly owned every single Citroen and most Peugeot's over the years apart from a Traction and an SM.
We have a few other cars, but I wont mention them on here.
You seem to have a few experts here, so I will observe with interest and maybe help occasionally as well. I get to see lots of new PSA as well as old, so any questions are welcome.
