What do you like about the Wind Luke? Can't be its name that is for sure and those looks!?! :?

Im happy to say that is one Renault which I didn't mind being a flop. Id much rather have a Megane CC.

The front on them is class. You don't mistake them for anything else when they're coming towards you! Plus it's just a Twingo underneath and it's a very fun car indeed. I won't be putting the roof down though, the shame would be too much.

Changing the subject quickly...

This XM just popped up for sale in France. It is a bit pricey for me, but I was wondering if it could be an ES9J4 with manual transmission? Did they sell that combination in LHD?

Activa V6 is a sight, but I have not worked out how to get an image from leboncoin into this thread.
The phrase "Peinture original" must have a different connotation in France. :lol:

I didn't spot this, however I have just seen it while searching through google:

" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

This is about 15 miles from me and not at all far from where I work. Yet I have never seen this car!

Does look tidy but its rear tyres are not the right size.

Its a 2.0 16v SX apparently.

It is a very rare thing for me to see a Xantia these days but coming out of Aldi this evening I saw a dark green one that appeared to be in excellent condition - a '52' reg, never seen one as young as that before, 'Y' is the youngest before that.
