THE CITROEN CX 25 GTI

THE CITROEN CX 25 GTI THE LAST OF THE REAL CITROENS

 NOTICE BOARD

Hi CX owners. It is now September 2021. We are in a Level 4 lockdown here in Auckland, so I am looking around for something to do. I can only bake so much sourdough and the neighbours  freezers are full as well. A friend approached me re helping him find a CX. Apparently his wife had given him permission to buy another Citroen as he had just sold his very nice DS 20, slopey dash and BVH as well!!! I tried to win lotto, no luck! I was able to find him a CX Turbo2, more of that further into the site. Someone out there asked if this site had closed down and since nothing has been added since March 2016, that would be a fair assumption. Those two events have inspired me to get back into some form of action. 

I would like to call out to all CX owners here in the Shakey Isles ( does that avoid politics?) to share your CX on the site . Just send your CX photos and stories to me and I will include them. Have you any photos of CX's at the annual rallies? If so please send them to me.

WHAT'S NEW MARCH 2016 

- Two new CX's for sale in NZ

- A new page "Restorations" with Danny's CX the first one up.

- relocating a CX Oil Filter

WHATS NEW SEPTEMBER 2021
-  Additions to owners cars
-  Restoration section has additions
- A cry out to all NZ CX owners to send pictures and    written material to me.
- If you know of any CX for sale let me know, details    and pictures if possible,

Do you purchase parts for your CX from the various parts suppliers in foreign lands?
Do you have fun dealing with your bank making the payments for your purchases?
I have found a very simple and cost effective way to make international payments and you can do it all from your computer.

                             HOW CAN I GET THE EXACT PRODUCTION DATE OF MY CX? 

Getting the correct date of manufacture for your CX can be a trial.

If your car is NZ new then there is a 99% chance that NZ registration records ( available from www.carjam.co.nz) will be correct. However this may be incorrect if your car was directed here from another country eg Australia or the UK or if was privately imported.

The only 100% accurate way of establishing the date is to use the ORCA number.

You will find this number painted on the front side of the left hand suspension strut ( as long as the guard has not been replaced). You may have to encourage the wiring loom to move to see the number.

Then visit this website: http://www.citroen-ds-id.com/gen/Gen_Organr.html, enter your ORCA number and up will come the exact production date of your CX.

However this only applies to models built after  01 Jan. 1980.

Are you in the process of restoring or refurbishing a CX?

If so please feel free to share the highs and lows with us. Just email your story and pictures to me.
