Hello!

Post by JohnnyCarbon » Sun Nov 12, 2017 10:51 pm

Hi everyone - just picked up my Cactus Flair today (it is Artic Steel and Black). So far so good - I really like it. We have a C3 Picasso Exclusive as well and it is quite similar to it so not too much of a learning curve required hopefully. I was pleased to find out that it has a front windscreen heater, but was disappointed when I was told that the Flair does not have Apple CarPlay (the Lord giveth, the Lord taketh away!). I looked at many video reviews of the Cactus and was positive that it had CarPlay - but I was told by the Citroen dealer that the Cactus does not have it although the new C3 does. Not sure why Citroen have omitted it from the Cactus but allowed it in the C3.

Anyway, it is not too important and so have enjoyed the little time I have had with it today (picked it up at around 5pm).

Nice to meet you all and I'll keep an eye on all the going-ons of the forum.

Congratulations. I think, however, no Cactus currently has Apple CarPlay or one of the other "mirror" features.

Thanks Softrider. I'm guessing that the video reviews I saw (or think I did) were from other European countries - may be some of them have CarPlay.

Thanks Paully and Muddles - I'm sure I will love the car and thanks for welcoming me. Unfortunately it is the wife who will be driving the Cactus most of the time - she always gets the new cars and I get the replacements, so the car I'll mostly be driving is a C3 Picasso 1.6 HDi Exclusive which is a lovely car to drive too. In time the Cactus will be my car, and I will be driving it whenever she's not at work in it or whenever we are together. I would like to drive it so that I could see how the 'My Citroen' app works, it looks like an interesting thing to do.

Do you all use the app and if so, is it any good? The other app that shows you around the car is quite handy too.
