Thats a hard one, as theres a new one due in.... :lol:

Ive ALWAYS said Id never have an Activa... well, ok, Id never BUY one due to the problems with leaks ETC ETC, however, I may be exchanging the Bottom green SX TD for an Activa...

As for favorite, that IS a hard one to choose. The V6 is a sleeper... but the pick of the bunch, the SX HDi in Martious Blue that will be for sale... she has to go, as she get me the most money Id guess...

Im actually driving the HDi exclusive at the moment, and is the only one on the road at the moment..

The T reg SX HDi is mums, and she has just upgraded to the Y reg Forte... we are picking that up on Saturday.

Im going to look at the Activa week tomorrow...

That is quite some collection you have Paul, nice to see they are mostly diesels :roll:

Id really have liked to see your cars last weekend, shame we were a bit late getting over that way. Still, your Exclusive HDi is very nice, excellent daily driver. 8-) Thanks for letting me have a drive of it, i was impressed, im still quite new to Xantias!

Good luck with the Activa, id like one of those. Though it sounds like you might not!

I already hate one thing! The TCT... I hate them! If only they had the 16v 155bhp engines....

Or, as France, the HDi or other engine options...

Tis a shame you were over a little late... would have enjoyed showing them off - though they are all needing something dooing..

Cant up the boost on Nasp lump, the TCT is a nice little engine when running proper boost.

Anyway, where are the pictures Paul? such an interesting fleet of cars and no pictures!!!!

2.0 16Vs are very very nice. I perfer them to the TCT and 8V Not as gutsy as the TCT, but a hell of a lot more refined.

You obviously not driven anything else Jim, other then V6 and TCT's...

You need a nice HDi or a 16v Petrol....

Wait to you try a 2.0 16V. I have to say I am very impressed with them. I have driven both a Xantia and Xm with them, both autos and they're lovely.

I have to admit the XU10 in my xM isnt very refined by modern standards but the TCT is, great torque and i cannot feel the engine idle at all, its silent too. for a 16v unit it would be ok but being an 8v unit it really is remarkable, doesnt suffer from having a big flat spot above idle like almost every16v motor does either, the issue is MPG/Power it gives the economy of my old saab on the day to day but the saab was running 240bhp, mind you if you used the full 240 it would do 1mpg so you cant complain really.

Yes I have :twisted:

1.9TD, 2.1TD..

Fair comment.... :D :D :D :D :D Guilty as charged....

My petrol experience is restricted to TCT and V6 unless you count the XU5JA in my 205GTi...
