Spec. of 'identical' cars across EU countries

Post by rogermunns » Thu Sep 17, 2020 8:59 pm

Just picked up ex-demo Oct 2019 'feel'.

Altho' I am in France and bought this from Citroen main dealer, only when I picked the car up was it revealed that it was an import. i.e. Citroen dealers (and I guess others) buy cars in their 'system' and that includes all EU countries.

When I got uppy with the garage they said ' all EU cars are the same spec'. OK, so RH drive and LH drive ..... but for my car: not got remote folding mirrors, steel wheels, no 'auto' on the lighting stalk and no apparent STOP START ability.

Can anyone please advise?

I doubt whether there is any truth in the statement that all EU cars are the same spec. You do not say which engine you have, but stop/start is more to do with the power output. An 87 bhp petrol will not have stop/start, but a 110 or 130 bhp car probably will.
