This site had a real buzz a couple of years ago, talk of forming a club with a car badge, banter, a real pleasure to open up each evening to the games, humour, general discussions, I suppose a lot of the posters have changed to different brands now Citroen have replaced the extremely well loved Xsara model whose only real fault was windscreen refection. It would be nice to know what these old members are driving now and if they like the replacement as much as the Xsara

Like a lot of web site forums they run their course. The same problems come up over and over and members get annoyed with having to answer them again. Hence the membership shrinks and goes elsewhere.
I now drive a C3 MK3 Flair 1.2 cc 3 cylinder 110 bhp full automatic 6 speed. I love it. I loved my Xrara Pic but other pics fell short on the promise.
I am member of the C3 owners club on face book. I check in here once in a while as I always try to help others even thought the question has been asked before.

I check in here every day although it's 5 years since I sold the Pic.  Now on my second KIA Venga mainly because it is one of the few cars able to fit in my narrow drive and still allow me to open the door to get in and out. It is a great car but I miss the 2ltr Petrol Auto Pic.  KIA have moved on from being a bit poor, to good well built car with a 7 year warranty.  Service has been a pleasure with KIA Stockton on Tees.

The  move from traditional forums to social media has decreased activity in here and other ones I frequent...   There are several quite active Xsara Picasso Groups on FaceBook though (yes - i know, Granpa  :) )    ...

Some people are like slinkies - not really good for anything but they bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs!
