I'm back :)

Hi all,
Quick message to say I'm back in Xantia ownership again, couldnt stay away from a xantia for long, well 9 months this time, longest ever!
Very happy to say I'm now the proud owner of a '99 HDi exclusive, in red with black leather, in very good condition, perfect engine & gearbox, with a couple of sphere changes and diode mod done this week now a perfect ride too.

I think the car used to belong to someone here, the guy i bought it from said when he purchased the car a year ago it came with FCF stickers on it.

Reg no is S576 NKV if anyone recognises your old cars in good hands now :)

Registered 21st Jan 1999, wouldnt that make it one of the first HDi equipped xantias to appear?

Also as an aside anyone know what happened to the green goblin after I sold her?

Welcome back Sid :-D We've missed you!

Good choice of Xantia 8-)

The Green Goblin is going strong and looking good as of the X rally earlier in the year. I saw her there with her new owner who is both delighted with her and caring for her very well. I took a picture and it appeared in the Citroenian a while back

Yup, welcome back to HDi ownership!

The HDi originally appeared in 1998 in 110bhp FORM first to replace the 2.1 12v TD XUD engine. Useually S plates, Ive not seen an R reg HDi yet. Then later on in late 1999, V plate the XUD 1.9 was replaced with the HDi 90 engine. So, ALL S and T reg HDi's are useually 110 HDI units, then from V reg onwards it was a choice of 90 or 110..

Except all Exclusives which were fitted with 110 engines so Ive seen so far!

Welcome back!

Hope you've still got the beard and pipe :lol:

Assuming your still listening to Nightwish, have you heard about their UK tour for this year? I've got tickets booked, can't wait to finally see them live!
