Now, tt's good news indeed! Another thumbs up for ur Citroens.
Although, this fact would most likely be not made known...
Or even ignored... sigh...

The article is actually a press release from Citroen ANZ. It's a simple matter of getting clearance to reproduce the press release (along with some nice pics) as a flyer to handout at the showroom.

Actually C&C should do more with all that fabulous material about the DS-series and their concept cars instead of having just those links on their web site. Part of the showroom (say around the coffee corner) should showcase the company's future directions. Oh, OK. Maybe they are not allowed to say anything about upcoming real products but big pictures of the concept cars plus short write-ups should be visible in the showroom. Car manufacturers produce such material for marketing purposes, so why not make full use of it?

I can imagine! As it is the current site's News section is still in 'akan datang' state. The site also needs mods. The top and bottom banners partially obscure images in the picture galleries. The UK site is what they should aim to be like. Can even download the C5 manual!

The Citroen image is so easy to sex up. Don't even have to pretend or make anything up. If the company can improve their factory QA and produce fewer 'monday' and 'friday' cars then market share will increase significantly over the next 3 to 5 years.

they should go and co-develop better engines, especially now they have the prince block, go for something new 2L / 2.4L or 2t

They do have good engines, but all diesel! I wonder if PSA's co-development work with BMW produced any decent petrol engines for the DS series.
