Hi bro,

Nope. Mine is more like a very very dark blue color old C5 2L. It looks like black color to some ppl until a real black color C5 park next to it then ppl will agree that mine is actually very very dark blue color.

Cheers

Will be visiting Michael for the first time this Friday. Quite happy with both but going to support him since he is just starting out this month.
Even though my C5 is retiring in a few months, my wife likes it a lot and I am considering to renew the COE. I am quite sure there isn't another car of similar comfort level at the projected renewal costs (= lost scrap value + renew COE). Of course, I will need to change out the air suspension ...

The spheres are good for 200000km .the shock absorber blah blah.

Each sphere is about 200+ I think
Suspension 1 side about 400+ I last checked.

Should be less than 5k to replace the entire suspension system

That is just material cost OR inclusive of labor le? Thanks

Also if replace the whole system, also need special hydraulic juice for the suspension correct?

The hydraulic fluid is the Total Fluide LDS. Not too ex. I bought 2L before for $20+ before? It was actually to replace the hydraulic power steering fluid. The oil is specced for that too. There are other OEM oils which function just as well.

There was a day my white C5 and I were at TnP and there was a white C5 which Thomas was checking (think it was 28 Feb). And another black/dark blue C5. I wonder if you were driving the white one.
