Default Just booked a C5 Dynamique

Hi all,

I had booked a black C5 Dynamique last Sat with 1 bid guarantee and looking forward to collect my car in Oct.

As this my first time owning a Citroen (first conti car too), I would appreciate your advice on the following:

- What is our suspension setup? According to the brochure, it states metallic suspension? What exactly is it?

- Is the car runs on timing belt or chain?

- I noted the Dynamique does not come with the chrome strip that runs below the window, can I order from C&C?

- My deal comes with 3 years or 60,000 km free servicings, does it covers all parts and labours or merely just oil? According to my SE, it covers everything but I am kind of skeptical though.

Many thanks

hello Papa_C5,

it's good to see that dtech has already been able to welcome you and attend to your queries :-)

do take your time to gradually acquaint yourself with the car (even before it is delivered :-) ) by continuing to browse these threads :-)

Bro dtech,

My SE just informed me that the chrome window trim cant be done at C&C. Any chance that I can get it done elsewhere?

i see the diff part numbers in the catalog
