Forgot to update this.

Picked up the C5 on thursday, bought blind on ebay...

Not bad condition overall, everything intact

Weird the pod doesnt light up and somebody has definitely "had a go" at the wiring at some point. It isnt the pod as I tried that on a different c5..

Will open up the control box in due course.

Runs well though, was quite surprised!

Don't know how I'm going to sneak #4 in to be honest... Havent seen it. Meant to be complete but filthy.

I blame Ray for showing me how to store C5s upright.

See you Saturday mate, looking forward to it.

It does save space , but be careful about bending the black subframe/ "hoop" (where the boot lid clips into). I've had that snag when we transport the c5's in the large "Dial a ride" bus.

Hi Mike,

My wife made it perfectly clear that two C'5s in our house is her limit.
Uptill now I bought seven. So, I gave her an option to move out with the kids.
In my C5 invested opinion being married and having children is heavily overrated.
Imagine, I would have three extra rooms to store more Sinclairs!
On the other hand, I'm organizing the auction on the tenth of july so I hope to sell at least three of them over there, and keep the rest as spares.
So I am still safe till the 11th of july. ;D
After this it is rehab or disaster.
