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...

Haha, I like how you said 'I BET you your Xantia' I couldn't do that cause you'd probably win, then i'd lose my baby!

Nice to hear you're giving your Xantia a treat :)

There is an old man living two streets away from me.

He has been pottering around in his red 1994 Xantia Diesel SX for as long as I can remember. It looks to be in fantastic condition.

I must have a word and try and book myself in to become the next owner :)

I saw a c4 picasso 'lounge' today, a rare & expensive beast indeed! the owner was a nice guy though, had an interesting chat about the fact the alloy wheels for these simply aren't available from citroén, well thats what he was told anyway :roll:

Just spotted a Vel Satis on a BBC News report on the snow in Leeds.

It was being lifted by a recovery truck. Oh dear.

MK2s look good in sliver...

Must be a well-loved one, having a private plate. Bought as a 40th birthday present I guess and the owner has the initials JWM perhaps?

Theres' a distinct lack of the old white stuff in that picture Franklin. Where was it taken?

Not 100% sure but it was either the M42 or the M6 - heading back from Leominster.

We've got hardly any snow here ATM, just bitterly cold - although we're apparently due for some...don't know when though! :?

I saw a Renault 25 in Belfast today!!!

The owner looked slightly weirded out by my jaw-drop reaction.

I need to now find it and buy it :)

Saw 3 Xantia's yesterday, can't give details as the conditions were quite bad ! The only one I saw fairly clearly was in a store car park in central Worcester, dark blue and P reg. The other 2 were going in the opposite direction on dual carriageways in the Worcester and Redditch area.

Actually I regularly see a fair few of them around my local area.

I was driving behind a M reg Citroen Xantia today. It was blue, and had sx on the boot.

I managed to see it had Turbo D on the front door when he turned the corner.

It was a bit bouncy though!!

I spotted a very nice S1 Xantia yesterday, in Middlesbrough. An R reg 2.1TD Estate, usual spec with Activa wheels etc. Looked very tidy.

Last Wednesday when i drove down to Birmingham i passed a lovely Xm, P reg in silver, Exclusive spec. The reg was P207 CMO, only a few away from our old Xm SX, P104 CMO.

Today i was following a smart looking Mreg in the nice pale blue colour. Spheres were all but flat, a tidy looking car though.
