I just drove to Reading and back (there on the A4, M4 on the way back)

I've been away for a week so I have been driving other cars here and there.

I turned off the music and just listened to the smooth thrum of the V6. Comfortable, quick, quiet, smooth... And not a rattle anywhere.

I love my C6

That is all

mine as well

My son was up from Kent and couldn't believe how quiet and smooth it was and wouldn't believe it was a diesel from inside the cabin

Well I love my C5 V6HDI just as much as I used to love my C6!

@Dave: but if you had to choose & money was no object, what would you choose - Six or Five?!?

Thanks,
Sam

If money was no object I would not be driving a 5 or 6. In fact I wouldn't be driving a Citroen

Money no object chauffeur and a New Ghost

For now I'll poke up with the C6.

404 miles in the 6 at the weekend, 37mpg (not that I'm too fussed about fuel consumption I have to say) and just a beautiful drive!

The Ghost has been described as being only of interest to those people who can't quite afford a Phantom. "Money no object" surely, therefore, means a Phantom. For me, both are bricks on wheels compared with the elegance of the Bentleys, although the Phantom has significantly more 'presence' than its cheapjack stable-mate.

"Money no object" for me would be the Bentley Continental Flying Star, a special body by Touring Superleggera. Google for it and sigh! - Click Here -

I like my C6 but have to say it does sound like a diesel when in the cabin, when cold it sounds like a Tank.
It does smoothe out and get much quieter at around 75 - 80 mph
I used to have to hit the gas pedal in my Omega to make sure the engine was running when at a standstill, not so in the C6.

Really? Mine's pretty quiet and I love the sound of the engine under throttle.

Money no object for me would mean only 2 cars - Tesla Model S & the new Fisker Surf...

Going back to the C6, I agree, it's not quiet, it's controlled. And yes, I also looove the engine sound under throttle... Doesn't sound like a tractor (which most German diesels do)

Cheers,
Sam
