        i love the colour combination, thats what drew me to it firstly. did want petrol, but as i work in citroen, i see what issues the petrols have, so decided against it & went for the 1.6 diesel. Well ive had the rear windows tinted Limo, its awesome inside with windows blacked out, fitted my HID headlamp kit, going to remap it, just small steps for now hehehe

            issues as in unable to get them through emission tests for mot test, miss-fires that we have been unable to sort & having to change engines, thats on 3 cylinder & 4 cylinder engines, plus up here where i stay there is not alot of petrol engines to be bought

              Emissions test would be Cat converter or fuelling controlled by ECU
              Cylinder issues are usually helped by a good Walnut blasting, possibly HPFP- or if its a Racing, the pistons break!

                thats what we were thinking aswell, but after spending hours checking we found nothing, but still not able to pass emissions, it was very puzzling & after trying everything & contacting Citroen technical, it was them that told us to fit engine, car was off road for over a month while we were trying. im not trying to cause any problems here, thats just what has happened with us, so thats one of the reasons i opted for diesel & also that its free road tax lol

                  I had 2 THPs, but decided to go for an HDI this time, as no tax, and fuel economy better, and its not my only car

                  Ive just got a new Intercooler which I will fit soon, before getting a remap

                    yeah fuel economy is awesome in the HDI, the free road tax is great, im getting remap done first, as the car is supposed to be 92 HP, but im not convinced, as its got quite a bit of pull, more than i would of expected
