Hi all

Having been lurking here and on Autotrader etc for a couple of years on and off, I have finally got myself a C6. Picked it up yesterday in sunny Chesterfield. Hopefully I have some idea what I am letting myself in for, as I have had a C5X7 Exclusive with much higher mileage for some years. Except some C6 parts are unique and rarer and more expensive.

The new car is a C6 2.7HDi Exclusive, Mauritius blue (right? paint code KPKD), cream leather, lounge pack, with a fairly low mileage of 76k.

Despite paying a low-mileage-sorted-car price, I already have a problem: it twitches to the right on accelerating and twitches to the left on lifting off. I was thinking tracking, but the nice man in the local tyre place reckoned it is a lower track arm, and recommended me to go to a mechanic rather than pay him £48 for the tracking machine.

Here is me when I picked it up.

Congratulations ????

Could be lower arm rear bushing or the lower frip bearing.

Search for frip bearing in the forum, - Click Here - putting in a grease nipple is a good option to keep new one good ????
