Hi have just bought a C3 Picasso after 8 years of running a Xsara Picasso.
I like it, although there are some things not as good, such as the way the wipers park both together in the upright position; rather than one at each side.
Anyway i was wondering how upgradable they are, i.e. adding in items from higher spec models.
Can i add things like the rear floor storage bins for example, as i really liked having those.
Or extra power sockets at the rear, really useful that was in the old one.
Does the loom have the connections, there to be plugged into?

HI

You will probably get a better idea if you remove the plastic to take a look for those socket options.

Citroen do make changes and may or may not have used the loom that that had the extra features on your model on the production line.

I'm sure the rear storage bins would work out if they were an optional extra at first purchase. Its just a case of finding them.
