Hi there guys. Just wanted to say hi and introduce myself. My name is Stephen and I spend my time between Plymouth and Nottingham. I work as an engineer onboard submarines in the Royal Navy. I've had a 1.8 16v SXI Xantia now for nearly a year after swapping an old Fiesta for it! The Xantia had stood outside for year and was ditched. It came with stick on pin stripes, flaming skull decals and fancy wheel trims that look like they fell off a chav's nova. Since taking it on it's back to it's former glory with correct wheel trims, functioning suspension and brakes, cleaned inside and out, ABS fixed and a full engine service. This forum has been great for help and tips so thought it was about time I joined!

Kind regards,
Stepto.

Well there was the occasion with a deep ford......
Boats and Xantias do have a little in common. Both have very complicated hydraulic systems, both are getting a bit old now but the boat has alot more power and only needs refueling ever 25 years!!

You'd have thought he'd have at least put his windows up and his suspension at it's highest setting!!!
