    I have ordered a New CItroën C4 1.2 130 EAT8 Shine Plus In Red to replace my C4 Cactus 1.2 110 EAT6 Flair.

    could have had one straight away if I went for the Sense Plus at £295 but the Shine Plus you get a lot for £795. I have never spent this much in 16 years of being on the Scheme but it’s a too good of an offer to miss.

    It will look like this C4 but my car the silver trim around the fog lamps will be red.

    Lee, I completely admire your (family) loyalty to Citroen. This will be the most comfortable and possibly best looking of your collection. The C4 is such a great car, and looks ten times better in the flesh than any photograph. Great engine and Gearbox combination too. Three years happy motoring. Enjoy.

    Looks great Lee. I have fond memories of the Citroen’s I’ve had on the scheme over the years. They never missed a beat and I loved their quirky looks!

    Looking forward to seeing photos when you finally take delivery.

    I’ve always loved Citroen. We have an electric kids DS from way back in the day.

    I’ve always loved them wanted a BX but never got one, ended up with an XM for awhile was like driving a sofa.

    Bought a Used ZX for £250 for the wife to learn in in early 2000s & that was an awesome little car till an idiot in a motorbike destroyed it, still he got his in court.

    Wish I could’ve gone for a Citroen myself but just nothing really suitable as going for an EV but if not citroen would’ve been top of my list.

    Love the Spacetourer too such a roomy mpv & comfortable & pretty.

    Congrats I’m sure you’ll love it

    Thank you for the lovely comments all.


    Ive decided to upgrade to the 155BHP at £1,195. My mam is lending me the extra so I thought why not.

    Its going to be a factory order as there none in the country nor the 130bin Shine Plus anyway.

    My Car history for those that don’t know. Some that do know I am a Citroën Nut.


    first one I had was on the scheme 16 years ago.

    05 C3 1.6i 16v Exclusive SensoDrive Nil AP

    08 C2 1.6i 16v VTR SensoDrive £95 AP

    11 C3 1.6i VTi Exclusive Auto Nil AP but paid £100 for 17 inch alloy wheels upgrade and £160 for Auto Lights and wipers with auto dimming mirror.

    14 C3 Picasso 1.6i VTi 120 Exclusive EGS6 £195 AP but paid also £210 for the black pack which consisted of glossy black bumpers and 17 inch alloy wheels.

    19 C4 Cactus 1.2 110 Flair EAT6 Nil AP But paid £100 for black alloy wheels.

    fairplay to the Cactus when I had it in March 2019 it was great but obviously things changed in those 2 years. I will miss the glass roof mind when it goes mind but I’m sure this New C4 will make up for it.

    That’s great news Lee. Can’t wait to see some photos when you get it. Fantastic looking cars with all the kit you could ever need.

    Love Citroen, they make some funky cars and all the range look good, no other car maker comes close to the comfort of their cars.

    My new car has arrivied. I’m picking it up on the 28th May as the adaption company can’t get it in until 25th.


    so glad I went for the 155 as the 130 model looking at September for delivery.

    Never looked at Citroën before as I’m not a fan of French cars but that looks really stylish and comfortable, love the the rear-end. Definitely worth a look.

    That’s why forums like this are so good, it opens your eyes to car’s that you would normally wouldn’t consider.

    Thank you for the lovely comments it is a lovely car and such a great ap on them as well.


    Paul on Shine Plus Models you can specify drovers Electric Seat for £150 cost option that brings the massage option as well. But I’d say that would definitely be a Factory build car when ordering.

    as for Electric funny enough my dealer doing a offer now at the moment on the ë-C4 shine for £395 but I haven’t a drive and where I live there isn’t any chargers at the moment. And with autism I’d be having range anxiety. With Petrol I have this thing not to let it drop below half a tank lol.


    when things are more progressed on a few times when hopefully the local Morrison’s will Have chargers.

    heated seats is standard on Shine Plus though Paul if you want a heated steering wheel it’s an extra £50.

    I’ve had 2 Citroens in the past a C6 and DS3. Both were fantastic cars and I can understand why people stick with the brand.

    Amen to that. Loved my DS3 on the scheme when they very first came out. I still think they look terrific all these years on.

    Wow Elliot you had a C6. Lovely cars they are. I’ve never sat in one unfortunately. A Vicar bought my Dealers Demo back in 2006 as a retirement present to himself.

    The C6 was an incredible car. I had the top of the range one as a company car. It had a 2.9l V6 diesel engine which was so quiet. The rear seats reclined and were heated too.

    you and your brother won’t be disappointed Chris I love mine.

    is he having the 130 or 155?

    Thanks for this Lee.  The 155 shine plus is on my very short list.

    Was yours a factory order? You got it really fast!
