Hi,


I have a 2005 Black Magentis, I'm in South Wales. It's 2.0 in Black with tanned leather, it's a really rare but great car!

sounds really nice mines 2006 blue ls 2.0 diesel i love it just got it back about 3 days ago, its running better than ever i actually saw the older model up my way about 3 weeks ago it was a burgendy colour and it looked massive, really, really wide and low ground clearance. I was mighty impressed,

hi, I have a 2.5 se on a 51 plate and its an auto but keep poping out of 4th gear. Only way to get fourth back for a short while is to stop the car, take it out of gear, turn the engine of and start again
any one got any idea's ?

yesI drive magentis 05, bought it 6 months ago and have only seen 5 pre new model 06's on the road. Seems like magentis drivers and their owners are a bit rare.Mine's a 2.0 auto. Anyone out there know much about their reliability, any mechanics to look out for ?

I have retired to Hungary and bought a 2.0 ltr diesel Magentis 2009, seems like a good motor and very comfortable, haven't seen another on the road here though,. Cost approx; £9500, traded in a Citroen C4 1.6i petrol which was very uneconomical indeed,.
