The C4

Post by Welly » Mon Apr 18, 2016 8:16 am

Thought I'd share a couple of pics of the C4, slightly uplifted front end for the roll out models:


Special '0' reg :D and tinted rear window don't you know:

Crazy Citroen interior, nothing is where you think it should be, most buttons have at least two different jobs, the steering wheel buttons we still can't figure out. Its got an electronically controlled manual gearbox so no clutch pedal, it has got a clutch but you're not allowed to see it. It has Bluetooth which the missus likes as she can use the phone through the speakers and the kids* can play there electronic music through the stereo.

The speedo is in the middle of the dash and is just big numbers on the display, it's quite good actually and easy to keep an eye on the speed. The display also shows oil level, engine temp and which gear you're in (as obviously that's not up to you) :?


1.6 HDi, DPF filter, eolys fluid 'pouch' on the tank, all short local journeys so absolutely no worries there :D

Does look very tidy and has put my imaginary universe back into order, (for some reason I assumed the Ashtray was red, or maybe silver).
That there gearbox sounds mighty confusing.

As you say, no worries on the 1.6HDi / DPF combo - just program your crystal ball so you can force a manual regen immediately before the turbo shrieks to an unlubricated stop.

That looks ok, I do like the front of the later Citroens (meanwhile Pug are still pushing the wide-mouthed frog look :( )

There was some mention of automatic manual gearboxes on AS a while back (seriously not got time to keep up with it there), most of them seem to be manual boxes with windscreen wiper motors to change gear and work the clutch. I think I'll take the consumption hit and stick with a real automatic, ta muchly.
