I think I recognise that one James. It was at CXM last year. The funny tailpipe is the thing I recall.

I believe it's a 2.5TD

I think the plates showed 3456NU59.

Spotted an absolutely gorgeous black Pug 309GTi in Cheveley Services on Saturday.

Got speaking to the owner. It was a special one. Aircon and Automatic - destined for Japanese export but cancelled so sold in the UK, just like the Pug 205 Gentry.

Silver Xantia disappearing down a sliproad and a black C6, the reg of which looked vaguely familiar, in Aldi's car park. Both moving fairly quickly and no camera to hand.

I spotted today, in North Fife an old DS in gold going the opposite direction unfortunately. I didn't catch the reg so can't even say how old.

Just read the blog about it and it seems like a good car. Wish I had more space!
Not sure about being owned though :)
