Not too far to come to the CXM Rally this weekend and meet up with a lot of us then :wink:

It's a lovely forum this, very friendly and with a complete absence of any nastiness that so many other forums seem to suffer from. It must be something to do with having a common interest in old French cars :roll: Most French car forums (especially Citroen ones) are much the same...

There's a lot of fun to be had and extracting mirth from as many situations as possible is a given. We all share very robust sense of humour...

Actually, it's less than 2 hours down the M1, and it won't cost too much in fuel with the car not liking to go too much over 4000 rpm :). What's the chance of getting a last minute addition to the meal Sat eve?

Ay up, xenton!

Always nice to welcome a new member. And well done for finally discovering motoring's best-kept secret. Citroens are actually pretty good!

Would a West Midlander be acceptable? Who is from sunny Yorkshire?

We're all midlanders! I was staring to think all members were southerners or northerners. Not that I have anything against either of those, was just worried there was a void in the midlands.

Ay up, xenton!

There is a void in the Midlands - it's where bits on yer chips is unknown! However, in compensation fot this, I've found folk round here to be very friendly indeed. So, although I doubt I'll ever sound like owt but a truculent Northerner, I reckon I can call meself a Midlander with pride. Not a Yammer yet, though. I need to learn the lingo. Yammer, in case you don't know is a name for a Wolverhamptonite but say it carefully - it can be misconstrued as an insult, especially from us "furriners."

As for sorting your motor, there's plenty of boffins on here who can help....
