This was my first car and it was great fun, a real pocket rocket.
It was the GT engine with the GTI body kit (only 500 made like this). Handled really well and acceleration was really good. Top end was meant to be 120mph, but I never took it over 90mph, as it started to feel a bit light and would drift a bit.
Really nice dash and interior, which just felt like sitting in a little race car.
The boot was big enough for a boxed 15" sub, but the back seats were quite small unless you were a hobbit.
The car was pretty good when I got it, but things slowly started to go wrong.
Air conditioners stopped working, but I never bothered to fix them.
CV joint fell apart and was a nightmare to get a new one as Citroen wanted £110, so I went to the scrappage yard where I found out that the AX's used 5 different CV joints in two years, and there was no pattern to which one your car would have.
Fuel filler neck rotted out, which was connected to the filler pipe in a one piece; a real pain to get sorted, but didn't cost much.
Alternator broke, but was only £30 for a new one.
Had to take it off the road as the rust got too bad on the sills and arches, and was going to fix it, but got sent to Iraq with the army, and when I got back it was just too far gone to fix.
Really really loved this car, and wish I still had one. Have been looking for a good one for a few years, but they are very few and far between. All seem to be rusting on the rear aches.
