Indeed, I know what you mean Graeme - they're starting to get quite scarce... I still see one L reg sinker in regular use in Cranfield but they are the rarest of the lot.

When did you last see an XM on the road though? Now they really are getting a rare sight...
As I've been playing with my dashcam, thought I'd record the Xantias I've seen this week.

Saturday on the way to Canterbury

In Northium, green estate

And out of rear cam

In Rolvenden I nearly always see this really clean lovely blue Xantia
Image
And out of rear cam
Image
And in Canterbury itself

Then today in Blackheath, I still need to play around with the position of the front camera as most of the image is of the mirror gubbins!

I hope someone finds this at least mildly interesting. I am having hours of fun with the camera!

As you may notice I have tried Imgur at the suggestion of Myglaren. I think I need to try re sizing them.

I spotted a 56 reg Bronze C6 in Reading today, and then a C reg White BX. I didn't have a camera available at the time.

An XM approaching rapidly (in a 20mph zone) early this morning.

First one I have seen in years outside a Citroen rally.

A flurry of Xantias last week too, another rarely seen model around here.

And, while following a C5 estate, three more C5s in a convoy passed in the opposite direction.
