I think only the SX and Activa models got the rear spoiler? I dont think Citroe thought it would go with the exec style of the exclusive 8)

I think they were 175's, and the car was probably a 1.8, also in red!


Hehe, that's true, "normal" Xantia looks very skinny next to an Activa, due to both the tyres and the missing rear spoiler. :)


Also with the lack of the "fat wings," it looks like the "normal" Xantia has been on a slimfast diet!

Happy bidding - see if this one goes for more than £510 too?

In the auction listing it says...........

"Activa OTT for a journey to, and from work." EH!

NO!

That should read 4 X 4 OTT for the purpose it's been used for!

Which is anything but, (as usual) what it's capable of!

It's better to keep the Activa, and get rid of the 4 X 4!

Shame that the interior of the car got decorated with a tin of paint!

Also ironic given that the sellers ID, is to do with interiors!

The Activa is more for daily use, and would be more fun than a vehicle that weighs a lot more so therefore would not be very economical.

On a daily basis I can enjoy my Activa, and explore its potential! :wink: 8)

While recently we had snow, and then (and only then) a 4 X 4 would have been able to show what it can do, but then again probably not!

This ability to go anywhere was probably limited by the lack of ability, with most of the drivers of these tanks I.E too scared to take the overweight precious LOL :lol: thing out, and if they did then it's a case of diff locks what do they do how, and when should I use them?

Low range COR does my car have low range? Does it? DER! I don't know how to use it.

Therefore it begs the question why did you buy it!!

You herd following muppet

Be different buy something special, and worth having!

I like my Activa because it's different, worth having, and the engineering is special, and more likely to be of daily use than the OTT 4 X 4, which are top heavy, and have a distinct, and far greater chance of rolling over than any other car they are much more unstable while the Activa is the opposite!

So I know which car I feel safer in, and would rather have, and keep!

Rant over!
