So the change was worthwhile then Jim Looks like a good car, you seem to have a habit of getting R registrations :roll:

Has it got the full leather interior or the part suede?

I wish my camera was as good as the one used to take the Prestiges shots ...

Lovely pics Jim, I really hope you are happy with the new car, it really suits you. Didn't see your email until now or I'd have given you better directions. Doing that now for next time.

The worst thing about reading your posts, and that of others is that I still want an XM or Xantia, despite having the brilliant Subaru! There's just something about them..

They're all well and good until you poke at something and it crumbles in your hand... :P

I have this idea that a big car, needs a larger motor as part of it's philosophical "core".

Hi Jim,

Just seen that you've acquired the XM V6, congratulations, I know a fair bit about this car's history, having bought it from it's original owner a few years ago when he bought a C6. I'll tell the story in a field sometime soon.
Glad you're enjoying it.
