Hi everyone

Been a long time lurker on here since having a Xantia a few years back, unfortunately a mate borrowing it, a patch of diesel and a telegraph pole put paid to that! Always wanted another but cirumstances never allowed

Anyhoo, the wife's Pug 406 bit the dust last weekend (rear subframe collapsed due to corrosion) so I needed a replacement in a hurry. Managed to find a 2.1 SX saloon not too far away so snapped it up. 2.1 wouldn't have been my first choice but it was a Xantia at the right price in the right place at the right time, and I'm learning to love it already! Trailered the Pug to the scrapper yesterday no problem at all.

Sorry to ramble but I'd also like to add the other reason for wanting a Xantia - this forum! The wealth of knowledge on here is unbelievable. Everyone seems so friendly and helpful, even the arguments are civilised!

Look forward to participating in the future :D

A very warm welcome Mr. Loon :D

And welcome to Xantia ownership. The Xantia is just like the 406 but far and away more comfy :D

It has all the same qualities as the 406 with a heck of a lot more thrown in as a bonus....

Aye, tell me about it! my wife drove it home. When we got back and I'm standing gazing admiringly at her (the Xantia, not the wife :lol: ) She turns to me and says "Oi, hands off - it's my car!"

Thanks all for the welcomes

Congratulations on your Xantia!

I do quite like those, but don't need another car just now, or I'd buy one!
