Recently helped my niece move, which involved going from here, (mid-Kent) to Southampton, taking her and stuff to Yeovil, then on to Bristol (stay with daughter) and back to Kent next day. Saw the same number of Xantias as 2CV's, one of each.
However, here's the question; there's been quite a crop of Xantias through the village lately,at least half-a-dozen in the last week, including a well presented dark blue 'L' reg, with chevrons on the bonnet: does having the chevrons on the bonnet and being a sinker coincide exactly?
How to feel a complete idiot, (in my case, part 2n + 1).
I stopped for petrol in N Yorkshire, at a country garage where there was attended service. The young lad unscrewed the filler cap, and neatly slotted it into the moulded recess on the inside of the flap whilst he performed the operation. I have owned the Xantia for eight years and never realised the bloody thing was there!
Cheers, one and all.
