Now that I’m using the Xantia V6 as my daily transport rather than the Benz C43, I’ve noticed significantly better fuel consumption.
Now I’m only using 1 tank of petrol a week, whereas before it was between 1.5 and 2.
We sold the BX for £500, so I’m down to two and a half cars now. That feels much better
The Benz is still having gearbox problems, but I’m supposed to drive it until it gets worse than it is so that (eventual) diagnosis is easier.
We took the Benz away to Ruth’s parent’s at the weekend. After spending most of the previous month convincing myself that it was a bit of an extravagance and that I should sell it, I was reminded what an excellent car it is. So now I want to keep it
