Further to my thread from the 5th March, I finally picked my C4 Picasso VTR+ up on Thursday (2 weeks later than planned). The car had to go back to a Citroen garage re the power steering, which turned out be a fauly sensor which was part of a recall this car had missed and was awaiting Citroen UK to authorise the repair.

Don't know if this all this true, but working OK on the drive home. So much smoother and quieter to drive than than my old X reg Picasso which we traded in. Only gripe I had is that when drove off forecourt the fuel pump flashed. Why is it when you shell out almost £8 grand plus a trade in they cannot give you any blummin petrol !!!!

Only scary moment on the way home was whizzing off the motorway to a roundabout, was that the brake pedal has a lot of travel before kicking in compared to the old car. I guess it's a case of getting used to it or should I get it checked out /adjusted because I prefer a lot more bite at the "top end". Finally the V5 states the colour is purple.

I think I have the Icare metallic colour which is stretching the imagination to call it purple !! more Indigo if you ask me !

Just need to get some time off work now so that we can aquaint ourselves with each other !!!

Consider yourself lucky!

I had a new car delivered to me at work, and delivery guy told there wasn't much fuel in it. And he was right.

I never got to the nearest fuel pump, less than mile away, and had to be towed in on my personal RAC account as the new included AA account hadn't been activated - plus all the usual about having the readies to pay for the fuel.

After being towed to the pump, the AA logged the details, and couldn't believe the mileage on the car. 000006. So how much fuel is needed for a bout 5 miles? About half a litre? It must have been what was put in in the factory when it was built.

That's how tight the margins are.

I did try a claim against the dealer, but they said once I signed for the car, that was it.

It's quite bad really, youd think a tenner's worth wouldn't go amiss.
