Yo!

Arrived here today via the mighty google in an effort to find out how to zero the average mpg counter on a MKIII XTR. Confusedcratch:

And Lo! All was revealed so that's a 100% success rate so far on this forum which is a bit of a hurrah.:thumbsup:

Had ours from new in mid 2010 - I forget exactly when now. Only just got to the first service at 12,500 as we have a bijou fleetlette of old bangers that cover the daily runarounds that call for more than the preferred two wheels. That was the reason for buying the blingo - bikes go straight in and can be suspended from the internal roof rack - how neat is that.

Overall delighted with it although to be honest I find it's use of internal space less 'clever' for want of a better word than it's predecessor a ten year old Renault Scenic also run from new and which would have been kept had the drive shafts not kept letting go.

That said if I'd known before signing on the dotted line that a) the drat radio turns off after 'only' 30 mins of waiting for Mrs B. outside the station/poodle parlour/ supermarket etc etc or that b) if it's in anyway laden I have to jack up the rear with the, er, jack, to get the spare wheel out I prolly/possily would have bought something else.

Anyhoosup being retired/thrown on the scrapheap (delete according to view) early we are down in the rugby/cycling paradise of the Pyrenees near Perpignan and when we are not we're in London E18 or environs.

I also tend to waffle, so I won't:whistle: but there are snaps of some of the fleet at http://www.flickr.com/photos/daviddb/

Hi David and welcome to the forum

I can't find the photos as the link seems to go to your home page with hundreds of pages. Could you link to your car photos or am I not looking in the right place?

Cheers

If everything seems to be going well, you have obviously overlooked something.

Welcome- I am pretty sure that the radio will stop switching off if you select to disengage the ECO function, but I may be wrong, so I think I will go out later and try it out.-Maybe not-the snow's just came on !! There is a link on the forum that directs you to "INFOTEC berlingo " which is very informative.:thumbsup:

There is a link to "INFOTEC berlingo" on the forum somewhere that is excellent.Try INFOTEC CITROEN on Google if no success-Enjoyed the photos but-poor piggies !
I personally love the Citroen DS, 2CV and especially Traction Avant ( saw one way back in 80's) and Renault 4

You have some lovely cars, the DS is lovely - but not enough of it to see for the snow Sad.
