Not at all. I was out driving, spotted it, parked next to it and took a photo :wink:

I did spot a green L Plate sinker in Cranfield yesterday. Is that a better spot?

I pulled up in front of the MK shopping center this evening, just before 8pm on the way to pick up Danielle from the cinema, and next to me was a rather lovely looking silver XM exclusive with someone that looked very much like Sir Jim at the wheel :)

Gosh :o I didn't see you Xac, completely missed you but yes, that was me!

You should have tried to attract my attention!

I must have been heavily engrossed in the new-found silence and comfort of the XM following the exhaust repair...

I'd been down the at the Hub's Brazilian restaurant attending an office birthday bash. Excellent stuff... Great food

Interestingly, one of my colleagues said 'I see you have a red V6 Xantia now Jim..'

So there was also a red V6 parked near the Hub. I think I know whose it was....

To be honest Jim I was distracted by the car and only saw you as the driver when we pulled away :)

One for Jim, the local Citroen indy owner's silver xm is in mint condition (from what I can tell anyway) :)

I pass a somewhat tired looking red BX most mornings in Stanton by Bridge, Derbyshire.
You can see it on google street view looking a bit smarter back in '09.

Only BX i've ever seen in the "wild".

They are an endangered species mainly surviving only in captivity... I can go from rally to rally without seeing one and then at rallies you realise just how many have survived. It's a lot :-D

Same for the XM.

The Xantia is rapidly going that way too...

Early C5s are now in the banger category formerly occupied by the Xantia. It seems to have happened quickly too...

There's a gold BX in one of those really annoying online betting adverts, where it's been converted into a popout casino.

Yes, There was a thread about that one on the BXC. It's believed they killed three to make that pointless piece of propaganda. I mean, is there a worse fate that can befall anything but being used in a gambling advert :twisted:

Disgusting :evil:

Spotted an Avantime that looks like Luke's. Probably not a V6 though.
