Hello from Chile!

Hi, my name is Max, nice to be in here!

I've been collecting and restoring cars for some years by now, being a CitroŽn enthusiast to the bone, altough I've been looking around for some other ones
I've recently bought a nice S600 that was imported down here by 2008. Maybe some of you know it, will post a picture later. Must be one of 2 or 3 down here. Must say that it was weird to find a CitroŽn-like suspension on the rear!

Have to admit, it's been hard to keep the lady up and running! and it isn't behaving yet again! just got out of the car with some burning smell that I've traced to the floor being just too hot below the rear seat... the insulation was making some smoke, don't really know how this could happen...altough the engine is running pretty bad to say. Has quite some vacuum leaks on the inlet and 1 or 2 coils going bad, will look around for info as I need to know where to connect them...maybe the exhaust is just too hot because of this.
Hope that problems end soon in order to enjoy this tank-like machine again!

Anyway, it's nice to know there's so much information around here so will definitely make use of it

Best regards!
