Think I may know that one James... MK1 or MK2?

And.. if you were in Bicester why didn't you travel towards MK and pop in for a cuppa?

I was working (5 different sites, 8 calls). I don't know what mark, but it was an 'R' reg. No spoiler. Early morning.

Ahh, that's another one then. The one I was thinking of has a spoiler which is very rare on a V6...

Nice spot with the red BX, I dont think I have seen that one about but there is a very similar one which lives in Thornaby.

Ive spotted two Xantias this week, the first two of the year I think! One was an M reg 2.0i with no airbag and the second a light blue 1.8i on an L reg. Both is quite reasonable condition, its good to see the early ones 8-)

I had a red* estate like that and loved it. I swear the load capacity was greater then the C5 estate and the ride was far better. Surprisingly quick for a diesel too (was my first diesel) and very economical.

*actually pink, the red was very faded.

Xantias must be common around these parts, I normally see around two a day on the roads!

Dad said he was driving a CX about on Friday - a Xantia Estate went the other way and the driver couldn't take their eyes off the CX! :lol:
