Looking forward to counter check with all the reported reviews.

General Comments:

I tested a 2.0 Diesel Break.

The change in gears is slightly further than I anticipated with the exception of reverse gear.

I ordered the C5 2.2 Break engine in Exclusive version, but refrained the temptation for the GPS installation because it also offers an alternative to watch DVD or TV only when car is not in motion. I follow vital news on BBC and would prefer it as well on the tv senders, hence a separate installation is a wiser move with more options linked to this separate installation.

Will also get extra film tinting on all windows to keep my travelling dogs cool and preserve their privacy from peepers behind.

Had to get used to the parking sensors.

Will do so in one thorough test with a large mirror adjacently placed by the rear pylon when I get my new car delivered in May, 2003.

I drive an estimated 135000km to 19000k yearly, both for leisure and as a partime BDM in Maastricht.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
