Contains the Activa Register, Buyers Guide and Activa "finds" on eBay and elseware. Post Activa-specific items there that do not fall naturally into the Citroen Forum.

I didn't want to get told off for using inappropriate language on a forum accessed by all!

Well, I got to stage 4, it was looking great.....then it slipped off a chair (my fault) onto the tiled floor and shattered....


:evil:

That's bloody annoying to put it politely...

New heights of profanity? Enough to make a chicken blush?

Bonding is a strange thing. I didn’t bond with my activa, however I bonded with Gabby nearly immediately and I have no plans to get rid. I think the only thing I would consider to replace it would be a xantia v6 auto.


It is strange isn't it. That was the issue I had with my last Skoda. I don't think there's any real reason for it...just never really got attached to it, which made every challenge it presented me with seem far more insurmountable.

The Activa however was the polar opposite - which will be a right old challenge when the time inevitably comes to further shuffle the fleet.
