There was a bronze coloured SM on the CCC stand at the NEC this weekend, possibly the same one.

Or the 15" wheels from a 2.2 or estate:

Ah ha! That confirms that C5 wheels fit the xantia! I did wonder if they did, the Disk size threw me off on the C5's


I like BOTH those designs, but prefer the top of the two... Exclusive SE Alloys are a little flat, too many small hole to clean out...

3 Xms spotted in a few days there, where have they been hiding.

I rarely see one, but i did a few weeks ago.

Maybe they are coming out of the woodwork.

Turbo CT, 'Constant Torque' Turbo.

Yeah, i didn't think they would fit before i saw that Xantia on ebay.

I think the wheels on our SX (top picture there) would suit the Xantia well.

I personally like the earlier VTR alloys, which my car has, though they are 16".

Saw a N reg Xantia overtake me on the M4! It was nice to see one on the motorway as I feel like I stick out like a sore thumb with my L reg Xantia when i'm surrounded by '08,'09, and '10 plate cars!

... and, colski, THATS what I love.... watch next time, and look and see what age of cars are broken down at the side of the road!!

I BET you your xantia that most will be 5 year old or newer!!!

I LOVE the Ole Xantia, my L plater with 238k is having a short rest while she has a minor revamp, dash change, rear subframe swap, re-con injectors, door handle and lock swap...

I saw a BX on the motorway few weeks back, a very tidy car it looked to be, it was going very slowly though.
