It is a bit quiet on here...... Sad

So who still has a C4? Mine is still soldiering on as my only daily driver (did have an affair with a D2 A8 for a while but that's gone now) and now on 320k plus change.

No major issues to report - had some more dampers and another wheel bearing....

Tough they are!

Still keeping mine going. White 2.5tdi avant 95. It's at the stage where it's needing a bit of maintenance and I've just replaced the rear calipers and hoses and I'm about to fit some new vented discs and refurbed calipers from a v6. I'm currently trying to get the parts to do the pulley and all belts/waterpump and fit a new radiator.
It's at 174k which is quite low mileage and it's mainly used for longer journeys as I'm in a van during the week. It is still a reliable car that can go a few weeks without being used and just be ready to use with no worries about it letting me down.
I have no plans to get rid and after getting the belts done I'm hoping it will still have a good few years left yet. Not having a ramp I want to get it checked underneath as I've noticed a couple of rust patches and want to address any issues. It was waxoyled before I got it and is in ok shape body wise apart from cracking lacquer and dodgy paint on the bumpers but it needs a new windscreen.

You might want to drop out the plastic arch liners (front and rear), check out the state of affairs behind them and repair/re-coat as needed. I had to change my front wings quite a few years ago when the arches rotted out (they are going again, but only surface rust) and was a bit disgruntled to note that the coating and the galv had failed behind the rears when I removed them last year. Caught in time to prevent any actual perforation but bad enough to leave marked pitting.

The area behind the rear wheels is the only part that is starting to show signs of real corrosion. Need to catch it before next winter or it will be gone.

Mechanically mine is still remarkably good considering the work it's done and it's used more or less daily. It's done nearly 1000 miles in the last two weeks. Still good on juice too. Well over 50mpg in this warmer weather.

just about hanging on here, I don't visit this forum much much as I don't do much to the car (other than drive it) but as it's recently thrown a ball-joint I'm back on the spanners Confused it's at 293K - I want to get it past 300K, and it's still a useful old barge, even though it's a bit scruffy now the rust is starting to show on the wings and boot.
