Re: Handling issues after tyre change

Confused. How are you going to change from 17" to 16" without changing rims? I totally agree different tyres on the same axle is not good. Different construction and loading rates do make a difference to the compliance ( how much the tyre squashes, deflect etc) and different roll resistance ( fricti...

Re: Stutter under hard acceleration

Yes it is! Dealers know about it, but usually trot out some guff about nothing showing in the fault logs. I believe that there is a couple of tsb's which include changing spark plugs if your vehicle is on the VIN list. Several have had the problem including me but mine now seems OK since the last se...

Re: Air-Conditioning

I got 14 years out of a Renault Clio air con.no regas or anything.
Just made sure it was used once a week minimum.
Daughters C1 is 6 years and still fine.
If it's not used seals harden and gas leaks away.

Re: Extended Warranty?

I'm in same position. Next week is last service and first MOT. Have decided to trust my local service station after that. I have used them for 30 years, they always do a good job without taking the p*** and don't charge the earth. Guess means I'm lucky as I won't pay through the nose for the jobs I ...

Re: Latest firmware

If you do the firmware update during the update your screen will look more like a std old school screen as per the old days of ms-dos. It checks sectors, loads new files, removes old files and eventually it comes back to the interface that we all know and love.🤡 It takes around 1/2 hour and that's h...

Re: Satnav update

If you sign up to the Citroen members site you may find your car has free map updates for 5 years. There's threads on here about it. I'm sure one of the other users will be along shortly with a much better reply than this. And a copy of the link etc.
Don't spend your money just yet!
