Spotted an M reg metallic green "SINKER" in Southport yesterday, YES was a sinker, it was down on it's knees. Look a bit worse for wear, the lacquer was peeling from the bonnet.

L reg Xantia LX (diesel I think), between Bridgnorth and Wolverhampton.
Looked clean for it's age and appeared to go well (after all it did overtake me and the car in front as I was pondering whether to overtake or not). With this happening it lead me to make the decision to go for it and join the Xantia when ever he overtook the next (slow) car!

...don't know how many C6s are over there but I know that Dessi's C6 is black and has the cream interior.

I saw three S2 Xantias yesterday, two HDis and a 2.0 16v. All looked quite tidy and didn't seem to be bouncing along the road like most of them I see.

I see C6s quite regularly, nearly always black ones or a dark grey. There is one I see almost every day on a 59 plate, usually driven by a woman.

Actually seen loads of Xantias over the past couple of weeks but just seen a mint-looking white BX in Sunderland, couldn't say which spec as it shot by me far to fast.

There are more and more appearing all the time. BRZ is the newest registration for that region, so this is either brand new, or just brought over from England.

I saw a mint looking 52 reg Renault Vel Satis yesterday, 2.2DCi in a funny grey/green colour. The more i see them, the more appealing they look!

Irish plated (MJZ) one passed me on the M6 (just before Junction 26) northbound about 00:30 yesterday morning.

In the space of two hours, my two favourite cars of all time.

Tried following the Avantime to see if he would sell, but lost it! Some real odd expressions from drivers it passed... looks way more bizarre on the road than in pictures!

Very nice! In the right colour too :lol:

Looks like you have a flat ... ? Or is it just having a Renault moment? :lol:

Fantastic looking cars the Avantime 8-)

I was looking at Vel Satis info the other day. I found a Q&S thing on the topgear site of Trinny and Susannahs visit to the track. One quetsion was how fast have you driven, SC: as fast as a Vel Satis goes. 147mph, worryingly!

So she must have had the 3.5 V6! Most likely since Clarkson chose it :lol: Wonder if she still owns her Vel ...

Just a Renault moment haha, brings up the warning if the pressure drops 5 psi below recommended. Had that warning for a week, really should visit a service station for some air.

Yes! I remember seeing that on TV! She said she loves it and Trinny said it looks like a hearse - I'm presuming it is black then? Being a so called fashion goddess, she probably picked some whacky colour of leather like blue, green or red (yes, they were all options believe it or not!)

Yes I really NEED an Avantime after following it. Unbelievable. He won't get away next time :twisted:

It was a coffin actually :lol:

Blue, green or red leather was optional? Why dont you see these on the used market! Having red lether would be the only reason id pick a car with leather :lol:

Were you going to make him an offer should you have stopped him?
