As I was trying to find a parking space in town earlier there was a very very tidy M plate Xantia 1.8 in gold also looking for a space. The driver seemed to be having a look at the XM as I was driving round. Not anyone on here I don't suppose.

saw another Green P reg S1 td estate just up the road yesterday, not one i'd seen locally before, although another local reg, P6** NCV, will keep an eye out for it again, but seems masses of them have suddenly sprung up pout the woodwork last few months!!

Crap phone photo of a Xantia HDi outside Halfords today.

Very rare I see one and even less often have a camera with me.
Just remembered there was a Pentax camera in the car too :(
Camera on phone is dire. I had to remove the card and plug it into the laptop to find this and a few other photo's taken recently but god knows where it has stashed the ones of a C5 Exclusive that was parked at the back of my house a couple of weeks ago.

Two Xantias on Friday, a silver saloon, didn't get the model as it turned in front of me exiting a BP station heading in the opposite direction, then a very bouncy 'R' reg SX with no indication of engine on the rear.

I spotted a C6 in Newcastle today, it could have been black or one of the very dark grey colours. It was a a TAXI! Didn't appear to be a private hire car, but a run of the mill Taxi, stickers everywhere, a big Taxi roof triangle and Taxi plates on its bumpers. I actually saw it twice today, both times I was driving so couldn't get a pic. It has a private reg, something like TXI ???
