Dad spotted a C6 today - he wasn't in his though as he was in a friends Merc E55 AMG. :lol: :roll:

Reg number 16 FTR and was Black with Tan Leather.

Spotted on the M6 near Coventry about 6:30.

Typical that dad wasn't in his C6 - it remains unspotted! :lol:

Im 95% sure I saw an XM last night, at around 8.30 (so pretty pitch black now) leaving Hartlepool on the Hart bypass coming towards me. It only had one working headlight which is what drew my attention to it and at the rear the lights gave it away it was an XM. Albeit with very very dim rear lights.

I don't often see XMs around here, its a rare sight.

I saw another excellent 2cv yesterday, a pale blue E plate which was in very good condition. It looked excellent among the busy city traffic in Newcastle.

Now this C6 spot was quite strange really! Last night there was a family and friends get together/party as there was a cousin's 60th.

We went in dad's C6 and I popped outside to let my ears re-adjust (live band - good song choices though - etc) I couldn't believe it when I saw another C6!!! :o

I wonder if the owner saw our C6...and I also wonder if they're a relative! :shock:

Anyhow...some pictures (thankfully I had my camera!):

A green SX, possibly 2.0 16v, to be exact. Spheres looked devoid of any gas at all!

Facelift C5, ruined by having Audi style daylight running lamps under the headlamps :(.

Actually saw a Xantia yesterday, first for ages.

There is an S reg Espace by me with the poundland Audi LEDs fitted! Makes me laugh.

On a better note, a beautifully clean Vel Satis with a woman driver :shock:
