Re: For sale: Citroen spare wheel + tyre - brand new 185/65 R15

Incidentally, inspired by a PM I received about this I should point out that the tyre size isn't completely correct for my Cactus. I found that the tyres fitted to the 17" wheels on my car don't fit completely in the wheel well in the boot. This spare does. The size is close enough to OEM to be a te...

Re: For sale: Citroen spare wheel + tyre - brand new 185/65 R15

Hi DavidW. I can meet you either in Ashington (between Horsham and Worthing) or in Handcross (south of Crawley on A23). Does that help? :)

For sale: Citroen spare wheel + tyre - brand new 185/65 R15

Wanli tyre 185/65R15 88T It fits in the boot tyre recess. http://i68.tinypic.com/168er9x.jpg http://i64.ti...

Not true at all (or is the wink there because you're being ironic?).

Many thanks for that. Been in France so apologies for the late acknowledgement. Just about to disembark the Eurotunnel so we'll try these settings on the M20!

Re: Diesel v Petrol

I get a lot of shunting at low speeds in my 82bhp petrol. It's annoying.

Re: Another long trip in the Cactus...

I've just driven to Toulouse in south west France with my wife and kids for our summer holiday. Total journey time 14hrs from Calais, in two stints. The Cactus was great cruising on the French motorways - smooth, comfortable and relatively spacious, and the AC coped fine even in a traffic jam in 32°...

Re: Feeling Negative about this Cactus

I love the car, but to say it's faultless is bizarre. Maybe being in the industry I'm picky, but there are some things competitors do very well..and that's great for us as consumers. I don't see the issue in enjoying the car, and appreciating it has areas that are not up to scratch. Agree completel...

JohnYoung, would you mind sharing the settings you're using please? Maybe i could improve mine with the same settings. Certainly would appreciate some tips if you wouldn't mind please.

Re: Sound system upgrade

Ours is the 6 speaker system and is really very good , can't fault it. I also have a Flair ... and we must be listening to different music! There's a clear cut-off in the bass response, with a frequency below which the system just doesn't seem to even try and make a noise, and a wooden quality to t...
