The CX is undoubtedly my favourite Citroen and much more than an XM but we can't all like the same things as c'est la vie and wouldn't it be boring! :D

Seats-wise the Series 1 CX cloth seats are amazingly comfortable - so much more so than the XM IMHO.

Anyway, a couple of spots from today:

A C5 VTR HDi with an incorrectly fitted rear Michelin, its fitted with the outside showing inside. Very detailed photography :roll:

You do seem to see more C5s than I do around here.

Luke, do you not like either the S1 or S2 Xm interior?
I don't mind them, not really a matched design with the exterior though neither is the C6. The Xm has superbly comfortable seats (more so if they are cloth!) and masses of room. The dash is fairly nice I think, I prefer the S2 again though.
I prefer the S1 with the single spoke wheel.

But I just think everything is pretty dated, especially the analogue mileage counter, and I also hate how the switches for the rear wash wipe are on the dash - how Hyundai Accent....

I beg to differ - take a look inside a Renault 25 of the same era!!

I can see this getting messy so I will end by saying that I'd very much like to own an XM V6 :D :D :D

AND... Citroens fantastic ride would no doubt put the Renault to shame.

I joked with Dad after seeing that and said something along the lines of "All I need to see now is a Visa hah hah!" :lol:

And then I saw one heading Southbound by Junction 8 of the M5! :shock:

I tried to get a picture but I wasn't quick enough :roll: but was nice to see a Visa on the road! :D

Just so long as it was the i love your car look vince, if you pulled up next to him and gave him the 'i love your wife look' or the 'im not waring any trousers look' that may not of gone down too well :lol:

No picture but today I spotted a Xantia in Burley in a light blue colour that I've never seen before. Looked quite smart.

What caught my eye though was the plate. S509 FVC :lol:
