I spotted three Xantias yesterday, up near Holy Island and Berwick. First was a silver S2 Exclusive hatch which was driving towards me, the next a silver S2 base spec and the other was again a silver S2 hatch which was pulling a caravan.

I see none and then three within an hour :lol:

Spotted 2 DS5s yesterday on the same journey (about 15 mins long - thought that was quite a feat!).. Today I've seen most of the C-range cars... C1, C2, C3, C4, C5, ( no C6 :( ) C8, and a Xantia.

I often see Xantias near home not in London, but saw this rather nice looking example in Greenwich today.

I don't know the model, but I'm thinking Series 2? I like those rear spoilers, looks very like the one on my car only smaller!

Yep, Series 2 2.0HDI SX. The Spoiler was standard on SX and Activas :) A smart looking example

Dropped SWMBO'd and daughter off at the bowling alley for a party, and saw something sticking it's nose out:

Went to collect a few hours later and it was still there:

It may have Jim salivating! It's a '92 3l v6 12V Manual. :)

Lovely 8-) But why, for gawd's sake, is what looks like a residential street stacked out and jammed solid at 7:30 in the evening? :twisted: I'm shocked.

Sidcup must be just another name for purgatory I guess. Sounds like a real fun place...
