Seeing that I posted it from my phone I was just amazed it appeared at all and missed the glaring spelling mistake. I will of course be whipping myself daily as a penance for the next week.

After I lost my engine under-tray things were never the same, sure we tried to stay together but all I got was the usual slurs, rumours and innuendos......people didn't understand......I sent her off in the end with a Frenchman :|

I'd have another 406 but it'd have to be perfect and have everything I know about sorted properly....re-mounted, re-bushed, re-bearing'd, de-dented, de-rusted, re-air con'd.....this then would be a stumbling block I think :frown:

Wow.

Well the 2.2 170 maps to 215. Makes you wonder how much of that 136 --> 170 is hardware and how much is software.

Mmmmm - 215bhp sounds good but I'm quite happy with ' only ' 200bhp at the moment.....

Have upset the odd Audi, V6 Mondeo and a Golf GTtdi, probably as my car looks very slow and quite unassuming, well it is a diesel 406 estate, until you give it a little ' encouragement ' :twisted:

Brakes are sh*t though so I have had many a brown trouser moment.... Why are Brembos so expensive :shock:
1999 T4 family wagon, slow as a turd but the kids like it
2002 Citroen Xsara Picasso Hdi90 - Dirtied by the kids, Dented by the wife....
