Hi,

I love my HDi 110, it replaced my 30DT which i also loved as it was 16 years old with 130K on the clock and still going strong.

Sod. I was just about to point that comment out ;P

I would add a "sorry trem" here but the bugger's got a 407 and I'm too jealous :)

So the answer is somewhere in between those two.....

We likes Pugs! :D
I have to agree myself

Definately more than just a car, but don't want to go too mad

I never keep a car more than 3 years ( if it's any good ) and had this over 4 now, so got to say something.
Just can't say it's my pride and joy, as don't go as mad I used to, as you never know when some scrote will spoil it.

bloody hell... waking up a 5 year old thread, that's proper forum necromancy :shock: :lol:
<steve_earwig> I think this forum is more about keeping our cars going with minimal outlay than giving our cars more reason to go bang

This morning I noticed another car park dent in my car, it looks like some tit opened their door against it and carried on pushing, flexing the panel. If I'd have seen them do this I think I could quite happily knocked them to the ground and driven over their stupid hollow head :evil: :evil: :evil: How attached to my 406 does this make me?

i did this a few times when i started off, didnt seem to be well praised for doing it mind, but anyhow i really like my car its the first car with a lot of things for me but even if it was a basic model i still like the shape and way it drives.
