Welcome. :) :) :)

205 = They got it all right first time ;)

Would love to see a couple of pics of the early 205 as they are a bit few/far between these days. I did like the later dash though as the earlier one seemed a bit 'over the place' but there is a nice charm about the very early A plate models too.

Ha-ha Stickyfinger (thanks for the welcome) – not to my knowledge, but given the reactor weighs 25,000 tonnes – and it’s located in a seismic region - I suspect Citroen’s Hydropneumatic suspension could be useful :lol: :lol: :lol:

Whilst working in France, spotted 3 (gorgeous) DS23’s, 1 Safari, 2 Citroen SM’s…….but no CX25DTR or Citroen Traction Avant (Oooooh this car is sooo beautiful)

Thanks also to spider for the welcome (as well as thoughts on my 205 problem)
