Hi All,
My name is Ingmar Hoogendijk, I am 56 years old and after having driven a few E-classes to almost the bone, I managed to get a nice C6 from October 2007 last January.
Until now I can not say otherwise that I like it, I have come across some things, but in the gray past also Citroen driven VISA, AX, BX and Xantia so I am used to it.

I think I'm going to create a kind of logbook like I did with my previous cars on the Mercedes forum. My last car was an E-class combi from 2001 with 535 dkm on the clock.Engine is still in order with a 320 cdi motor, but the body is made of German [%*^#@!] box steel and already rusted in the factory, the last 3 years I have not done too much there.

Despite the fact that the local governement could give me a subsidy to trade in the Merc for an electrical bicycle, I decidced not to do this. Also because there is no extension cord that cam with it. So the C6 is therefore again a diesel V6 2.7 Hdi. I have been looking for a month or two and an appointment in Germany was already there when I found it with Walter van Broekhoven in Utrecht. Nice garage and pleasant contact and ditto negotiation.


Related to work I am in IT as it is called, in a Telecom environment at a Swedish infrastructure supplier. Besides work, I have all kinds of hobbies, and tinkering with the car is certainly part of that. Only the last 2 years it has become a bit more difficult because the key place at my previous employer is closed here in Amsterdam.

Besides tinkering, photography, electronics and some messing around with wood and steel are also something I spend some hours in my spare time.

I hope that this forum, just like on the Mercedes forum, can learn a lot and also through the already accumulated knowledge regarding. automotive technology can also contribute here.


If there are people in the vicinity of Amsterdam with a C6 and also other Citroens, it would be nice to shake hands informally....that is after Corona measures have been abolished.


Greetings,

Ingmar

PS. If someone on this forum can decode my VIN to a list with data about the car (options, etc.) then I would be grateful. Please send me a PB.


Unfortunately PSA have changed the access to documentation at Service Box and 'Characteristics' or factory build documentation is now a 'chargeable' item and is no longer 'free' (repair guides were always 'chargeable')

Access is now 8.4 euro for 1 hour. I can only suggest that you register yourself to get access to the documentation you require.

Dave,

As I already reflected in answer to your PM, PSA applied more or less the same policy as for Daimler-Crysler unfortunately...:-(

Will give it a try at the garage next time I am in for a service.

There is a little workaround to get this functioning again. It was still working last week for looking up build detail:

With the recent removal of the free parts and characteristics (build information) from Servicebox, I have found a workaround that at least allows you to see the full build information for your car.

When you enter the VIN number and click OK (top left) and then click Characteristics, you will get a message to say you have to now subscribe to see the information.

Without doing anything else, if you go to the bottom right of the screen, and change the language from English (United Kingdom) to English (South Africa), the full characteristics (build detail including RPO) will then appear!

Sadly cannot do the same for parts now, so you have to pay to see Parts information it seems.

This may help you out.

Rencar,

I don't understand what you describe above, since when I open the page there is no possibility to enter my VIN, only login prompt is reflected or registration.
Should I use another link instead ?

You have to have created an account first to get logged into Servicebox.

The screenshot you have uploaded above is where you would normally enter your user name/i.d. and password to first get logged into Servicebox.

Once logged in, you can then enter a specific VIN and then look the vehicle characteristics up using the workaround I mentioned.

Some people have had trouble creating new independent operators login. If you’re struggling, let me know.
