Had 2 spots in 20 seconds today! BBoth Xantia's, first was a silver s2 td estate on an s plate and local reg, possibly within days of mine! Second was a s1 sd hatch in white on a p plate, the silver estate Guy came out the top of town just as we got to ours, could see him point and his passenger had a good look!:-D

On this weeks Grand Designs. The woman building the house was driving this. As expected from an Avantime owner, the house was bonkers.

Spotted a grey/silver VelSatis on the M5 west bound at Exeter, just after a slightly worse for wear C15 on the A3! Loads of older Frenchies around Wells too! May be able to snipe a few pictures too!

There is an NHS advert on TV currently informing people about dementia, and in it, when there is a scene in front of a chemist, there is a Peugeot 406 index number EX52 HJY.

I see this almost every day around Hart, its a self colouring 2.0 110 HDi SX with a missing wheel trim.

I was behind it earlier this evening, on a gradient in stop-start traffic, I bet it had a very toasty clutch ... #-o

Excellent, you're getting in to the swing of taking pictures, Chris! Bet nobody has ever taken a picture of that car before!

In one of the streets behind uni the other day.... hope it stays here and doesn't go back to France!
