The reason why I say this, is because in actual fact when a sunroof is fitted in most cars you get less head room, because the outer roof stays the same, whereas the inside gets a different headlining which is lower (around the sunroof) and, the sunroof itself also intrudes into the interior.


I prefer a car without a sun roof to be honest, because I'm 6'3" and MUCH prefer the head room! That's as long as it has aircon of course, which I'll discover about April... :)

I find the adjustment on the Activa seats quite infuriating. The tilt goes back and forward, and the height tilts as well! It probably doesn't help that I like to sit high up, so I can (hopefully) see where I'm parking...

Nothing wrong with sitting high up, I wish more people would do it.

It's when you can hardly see the head of a driver coming towards you, and you can just about make out their eyes, trying to peer over the steering wheel, that you wonder how much they can see out when they are driving.

In a lot of cases they could adjust the seat, and see out properly, and also be safer.

Of course some people are not so tall, but the seat can be adjusted to accommodate that.

It's like they want to drive their car from the position you are in, when in a deck chair.

NOOOOOOOOOOOO - I really REALLY fancy it but I really REALLY MUSTN'T!!
I like Activae with sunroofs... :lol: 8)
Here's one with AC AND a sunroof!!

Goddammit, thinking about it, I'd swap either of my two Activae that don't
have sunroofs if I could. Can't go buying it in the hope I can be strong
willed about selling one of mine though. :lol:

It's CJM number could almost be saying citrojim - so Jim, are you interested!? :roll:

So, anyone here going to spare it from a grisly end?
Did I mention it's a rare sunroof Activa? Think so.

200 Bhp too!

Actually, why is is spares or repair without an MOT?
Leaky rams and ropey sphere brackets per chance?

Not a big fan of the spindly aftermarket alloys though.

You wait for one and then they all appear at once like buses:

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/1996-CITROEN-XANT ... 32QQihZ018

Double vision or what! WITH A SUNROOF etc etc etc :D

I actually felt really sad after reading this - anyone here? Wish I could try and help you mate!?

Are you going to let this into the clutches of the nasty evil Activa Despatchers?

And it's in Milton Keynes.

Funny that as I've never seen another Activa (red or otherwise) around these parts in a long time.

I once knew of a red one very close to where Xac lives but that went about three years ago to be replaced by an X plate silver Xantia estate...

The last time I saw it, there was a very large dent in the NS fronnt wing and it was listing very badly.

If anyone wishes a viewing of this vehicle, I'm happy to do the honours...

Well he came back with a pretty good price may even be able to knock some more off, reckons everything is working, cambelt done etc etc. Am even more tempted now...I might go and have a look, anyone fancy coming with me? (ie. someone with Activa experience :lol:)
