I certainly have not.

I like that one, looks like S2 rear lights but the bumpers and side stripes aren't colour matched! I think I prefer it like that.

If you have the leads it should pick up the camera without any additional software Malcolm, will see it as a camera or USB drive and you can just drag the photos off it.

Spotted a V reg Xantia HDi 110BHP Exclusive in black tonight. 8-)

Well...we actually tried to buy it at EAMA but went too dear for us!

Was a fairly nice car but went to a fellow trader...75,000 miles too.

Spotted a white BX Estate on Winwick Road in Warrington about 12:30 on a K reg, looked tidy but was passing in the opposite direction.

I spotted (got overtaken by) a red MK2 V6 Xantia today on the M25 just past the M3 junction :D On a T plate ending BKV.

First time I've seen another V6 whist out and about..

Saw about 10 other Xantias today in my run down to Somerset and return via Crawley (ish)

Spotted what I'm sure was a Mk1 N reg Red Activa today. Was on the Hurn road (I was on my way to catch the Vulcan take off from the Airport but it seems it's tucked away in a hangar awaiting the weekend).

I'm sure I saw the door badges with a white background. Only problem was it was towing an evil attachment.......a CARAVAN!!! :evil:

Saw quite a few C6s, Xantias, BXs and even a tidy looking GS club in Portugal last week.

Got a pic of the GS I'll get round to uploading it at some point.

I saw a very clean black XM and a lovely green MK2 Xantia yesterday. The green wasn't a colour I've seen before, it seemed perfect for that car - certainly made it stand out catching my eye instantly.
