Hi all , i have already done a couple of posts .

Currently have a xantia 1997 sx td , previously have had 3 Zxs ,one after the other , mostly td volcanes', but was unable to find another so i bought this xantia which came along .

After more than 10 years with ZXs' i had a run of bad luck , a year ago my fav volcane failed it's mot on back axle , after ALREADY having spent £500 having a replacement from a Xsara for the previous mot .
managed to buy a low mileage tidy zx memphis which was giving 50 mpg and after i changed the alloys over , wheel flaps , changed oil and fuel filter ,and it was running nicely on filtered veg oil ..someone set it on fire in our street and it was written off in november.

Welcome Dave and I hope the Xantia is proving a good substitute for the ZX. At least back axles are imminently repairable in the Xantia :D

Hope the local twonks don't set the Xantia ablaze :twisted:
