    Allez les francaises? Meet Monsieur Sumsemann! A real Pluriel!

    Hey, look! Somebody on the forums actually a car with one of the worst soft top roofs in the world! Meet Monsieur Sumsemann!















    I actually had a go of taking the roof completely off, but in the end I ran out of motivation:





    So far so good!

    It has done 150,000kms, it's a 1.6 with 105hp or something? Who cares?

    The roof is awesome and you all can stfu!

    I hope it will make an appearance at Ringmeet too, but that's not up to me, that is up to the actual owner


    Also, proof pic:

    A 14 year old French car with a 150,000 km on it, and a complicated roof mechanism. You're both insane.

    I approve of this from the bottom of my heart.

      We need more insanity. The good kind, like this.

              I'm all giddy over seeing this, for multiple reasons. This is actually slightly beyond my levels of insanity and we need to see it at the Ringmeet for reasons.

              Go on then, tell me. Where the fuck do the roof bars go when you take them off?

                  This is amazingly shit, I approve. Also, it appears that the previous owner added their own styling touches to the driver's seat #itsaplurielthing

                    The car leaks!



                    Speaking of which, we decided to do something crazy:





                    lol... Only one side off though:





                    The main reason why we were out there though was to sort something a little bit more french:







                    The car has not been cleaned properly yet, we will probably take it and get the interior properly cleaned by someone or something, we don't know yet.

                    I will have a look at what options there are to fix the leak, but first step seems to be to replace one of the main seals, I need to figure out the best place to order this shit from, as I am not really prepared to play stealershit prices for it... Then again, often with things like seals you must

                      So when DaBoom was here, I wanted to get out, so we took the Pluriel to the N√ľrburgring for a visit. DaBoom wanted to prove Top Gear wrong and so we tried to fit the roof rails into the boot:





                      Top Gear are a bunch of liars!!!







                      Just carrying around some parts:





                      So, after some big rains the roof really does leak nicely. I have been searching for some new seals but have not found anything in the short period of looking ... (Feel free to do it for me ) ... So I will go to a Citroen dealer and see if they still make them (Unlikly) and then I will figure out what to do... Perhaps taking a trip to the UK and pulling some parts?

                      We shall see! In any case it is problematic enough for me to need to look into it immediately.

                        If you register in the Citroen Service Box you could see if the seals are still available new. You can also find parts numbers there. service.citroen.com

                              Well that answers my question, fantastic!

                              It certainly looks good in the sun.

                                A friend of mine had one, for the one year she owned it (from new mind you) she drove the shop loaner more than her actual car. After a year the dealer had to buy it back from her, because they could never fix the roof

                                  Yes. This is a known problem Endlessly Leaking Roof syndrome.

                                    We left the roof roof rails at home and went out to a really nice Spanish restaurant nearby, afterwards we spent an hour driving through some farm roads just exploring and took some nice photos:

                                        In the second picture in this post you can see they're steel wheels with hubcaps.

                                        Now, what can be said what hasn't been said yet? Well, to be honest, in contrast to Matt's Smart Roadster Coupé I don't like the Pluriel. For one, it's a Citroen and apart from the DS I don't like any of them, for another it's not even remotely good looking (those rear lights look like cheap aftermarket ones for a start) and lastly it's a Citroen, 'nuff said.
                                        Why E10? I'm driving E46...
