Nor me but yesterday I saw two and both in the same small town in Somerset.

On my travels yesterday I saw the tow BXs, two Xantias, a 2CV, a DS and finally an XM!

Was it a secret Citroen rally?

BXs and heading north - sounds like the Citroen Challenge Ecosse...

Spotted yesterday on the M25, around Junction 12, mid morning. One cream Citroen Traction. Looked nice, but no photos as travelling the other way (and you can guess how bad the traffic was!).

T-reg red Xantia LX on Friday 15:30. Very good condition, well looked after.
Speeding in a 30-zone, past a school at letting-out time.
Selected reverse while travelling forward at 30+mph.

No-one on here I presume? :twisted:

It clearly shows just how much better looking Mk1's are. ;)

I was following a blue MK1 Xantia estate down the A421 just outside Bedford yesterday afternoon... Looked remarkably similar to the one in the above picture :lol: :wink:

I spot only one MK1 in the above picture.. Two of them are V6s :)

I came back to my car this afternoon in Holyhead, to find an absolutely spanking dark blue s1 VSX parked in front. Gleaming, debadged (apart from the tiny "VSX", classy!!) and on private plates - definitely the nicest-looking one on the island. I'm sure CitroenXM is well acquainted with it already, mind...

I wonder if that's Vince's old one? Did the plate begin L4?

It was definitely an 'L' with a single number, could well have been 4.

Two interesting spots yestery, a blue dyane, passing in quick traffic so no photo or info.

But perhaps more interestingly this 'T' plate ZX, i didnt realise they could be so new! It was a 2.0i according to the wing and those alloys had the Citroen chevrons in the centre, very smart looking.

"Oh là là" or should I say "Oh mon dieu" :) Wonderful 5 days holiday in Paris and driving with my own car. Survived without a scratch :mrgreen:

Lots of Citroens, and here are two of them. I might send more later on.
