Steven,

My Xantia will be available in a few weeks time, but won't be that cheap...

Robert

I knew it wouldn't be. A good one would be worth the extra though.

With Robert's guidance and £500, you should be able to find a nice, tidy Xantia...

As long as Robert doesn't buy it for himself!! :lol: :lol:

On that note it amazes me at how much people are advertising ropey old Xantia diesels with no MOTs for over here.

If you're not doing the miles Steve, a nice 2.0 16V automatic would fit the bill perfectly. Good value for money, and generally better looked after.

A nice MK2 in Mauritius Blue...

Not one of mine by the way...

Steven, not much chance of finding a decent Xantia here... I've given up.
