Transport in France


Here's our French car, a Citroën Grand C4 Picasso.  


Just 1.6l , diesel, 5 speed manual but that's plenty around here with all the narrow country roads.  And we are getting about 5.5l/100km overall. 7 seats in case of visitors!


Its previous owner was a country taxi driver which ought to be scary, but it is in amazing condtion!


2008, 180,000km, 6,500 euros. Fingers crossed...


Also a scan of the insurance certificate, "la carte verte", which must be carried at all times. A smaller version is attached to the windscreen.


There's a debate to be had here about crediting us with our NZ bonus levels - current cost for 3rd party fire & theft is 550 euros/year!
