It'll be interesting to see what the RP is Jim - our Prestige is 5694 which is 11 June 1992, and Dean's is 26 May 1992 so very close! :-D

You need to stop this, you've all made me want another XM, which is neither sane or helpful. Gits.

Sorry Mike :oops:

Fact is, they draw you and there's no escape. Like a moth to a flame. I blame Paul (CitroenXM), Will (DieselMan), David Hallworth and Chris (570) in equal measure for this :lol:

Without their combined influence I'd still likely be an exclusive Xantia owner...

I first saw the Spaceship at DSM this year and I was immediately hooked. I tried to resist. Honest :^o

Ha you wait, it does NOT stop at one car, it goes to two, three, four and sometimes FIVE!

Ive FIVE, plus a visiting one awaiting repair... and my mate landlord who has an SED also has a second spare 2.1 TD auto...

Im proud my influence rubbed off, and you got the BEST eira of XM too Jim, mainly that she has bolted earth points, so no earthing issues there, and the hydractive 2 that should and useuall on S1.5 cars Always works... the LH Displays do not pack up though the RH displays liquid does go...

:lol:

Thanks for that. It's made me feel so much better.

Sell me one!

I loved my first one, I was so annoyed when the headgasket went. It had to go, as I needed transport immediately. The second one was ultra reliable, but a shed. The third one, I still can't remember why I sold it, as it was very good. I suspect my missus might have had trouble parking it - I got a Xantia 1.8 Petrol instead of it.

Does anyone recognise ebay item number 270842309602?

Obviously, if it's MOT ran out, it's worth about 1/3 of what the asking price is...

Jims Prestige is of a much later model, it is in 24v spec and trim rather than the earlier Prestige which had non colour coded bumper strips and the woobly web wheels instead of the 24v 'Speedlines'.

Its a 1994 registered car and in the late spec too, my guess it its RP is somewhere in 1993, though I dont ever remember checking it.

Here is Jims Prestige looking very smart!

Well, I was going to drop them an email and offer them scrap value, which is essentially what it's worth without one :-)

The bodys on SEi trim cars went colour coded in around 1993, My K reg SEi V6 is all colour coded and they do look better too.

My M reg Onyx was NOT colour coded, being an Si based trim. So L reg, Jims is either a 1993 or 94...
