The C5 column is a very good read too, as is the Xm section, in fact the whole magazine is usually a great read. This months is better than usual, as ive got a small write up in it :lol:

About time your car featured on the pages of the Citroenian as well :D
Heres to hoping Jim :P .....Im hoping to raise an eyebrow or two at the Northern Rally this year and enter the concourse a whole lot better than i did last year....hence my search for odd and sods in the for sale section.

I learnt to machine polish at my friends house last weekend, he has kindly given me the green light to use his stuff and he will help coach me to rectify the paint defects on mine....all ill need then is good weather and Richard to not turn up in his gold VSX :lol:

Looking forwards that that event, your car was looking stunning last year, cant imagine how you would improve it. Every good event that one, im always there.

I have been thinking along those lines, I feel a bit of a cheat presenting a car that spends all year sat inside a heated garage :oops:

By all means, if i come in an Xm you can have trip out in it. I usually come both days, last year i brought an Xm on Saturday and C5 on Sunday, so ill no doubt do that again, should have the 6H there too. Hope the weather is nice!

Vince,

Can you come and clean my engine bay (or should I say bays :wink:) :lol:

Saying that, why not the whole car!

That is amazing!

Hey thanks for the pictures...i never had any of my engine bay before i cleaned it up and i didnt take any good ones on the day..... :)

I spoke to most of the XM owners i think...perhaps we met?

Having missing colour mirror caps on mine is one of my biggest bug bears....i have been looking for some for about a year now with little luck.....i know i will end up having to buy some new ones and painting them up but I will have some at the Northern Rally this year come hell or high water :)

Tpby...id be happy to help you clean yours up if you were up this way :wink:

Just seen under your bonnet Vince. It`s hard to say without looking inside places like the air filter and ecu covers but I`d say that could be OCD........get to a helpline right away :shock: :lol: :lol:
