Hi chaps, I'm in Dorset thinking of a C3 ... up to £7K spend, are there any models I should avoid, are there any models that have important "extras" missing (I quite like the bluetooth for the mobile but ICE isn't too important), which engine petrol/diesel, parking sensors would be good for my wife (hope she doesn't see this),

You would be looking at a 2014 model, around 20k on the clock.

Petrol or Diesel is a very personal choice, which do you prefer?

'Extras' are another personal choice, I like all the extras on my exclusive, but others just see them as more things to go wrong.
I use cruise control and climate control regularly, but some people would never use those options.

Citroen have a huge range of options and engines on the 2014 models.

Been very very tempted by a pcp deal on a brand new one 4k for our 2k car (not really but a 4k contribution however you want to dress it up) we then pay £150/month 4 years then £3k final payment if we want to keep it

Or hand it back and start another PCP?
