The printed version I quoted said used C6s could be bought for 'nearer £6,000 today' while the website version says £5000.

Maybe by the time they got the article online prices had dropped that much

I suppose 'nearer £6000' is technically correct because they are nearer £6000 than the original price quoted, of £30,000! However, I can't say I've seen a genuine car anywhere close to £5-6K yet.

Well done on your "Famous" purchase! I have watched the Fifth Gear review a few times on YouTube. I hope you can get the cigarette lighter out! That really annoyed me when he said that. Its so easy to get out! I hope he wiped his foot prints off the dashboard as well! Really nice colour and brilliant choice! Get the free software upgrade done for the suspension (info found on the garage forum) and you won't regret it.

I, like members 'number6' (shouldn't you be driving a Lotus 7?) and 'ciao_chao', fell in love with the C6 when one was driven by William Gaminara's character, Prof. Leo Dalton, in the brilliant series "Silent Witness".

Sometimes its unreliability does P155 me off a bit but, suffice to say, a lifelong love affair with The Double Chevron marque always prevails....

WARNING: you don't buy a Big 6, or any other French car, for that matter, because of its reliability! My other car is a 21-yr-old Renault Espace J/S63 (Series II); hers is a Peugeot 307CC!!

Oh, and I forgot to add that my Spanish ride is another R-Espace, albeit a JE (Series III), 1.9 dti... Utterly brilliant car!
