Modifications, hmm... Starting with Black we have electric leather S2 seats, a 150k+ ZX engine, roof bars & a musical wheel bearing.

White also has elec/leather S2 interior, VSX alloys, leather steering wheel, original engine with random Ebay conrod in hole 2, AC delete, "adapted" 206 Mac strut gaiter on nearside rack(!), replacement/de-armoured slightly tweaked pump & keypad delete/coin tray install and an alarming propensity to chuck out blue/grey smoke when cold which I am currently attributing (perhaps more in hope than expectation) to wet-stacking from so much idling and test-fires over the last few months. If not then I can only think it's either the stem seals or the turbo having died over winter just to spite me! :rofl2:

The Boss's 206 1.4HDi has a rebuilt lowered rear beam with new bearings, JOM Blueline shocks & front coilover conversion, >'03 headlamps, "Lexus" style tails tinted dark smoke along with the foglamp, colour matched door handles, GTi deep-grille front bumper/fogs, genuine HDi silver instrument cluster, updated larger info display & silver surround, CC "aluminium look" interior door handles, leather steering wheel and gearknob & probably some other bits I've forgotten about. Quite possible the rear wiper will be deleted shortly as she's liking the look of the smooth rear end at the moment (probably will also entail fitting a colour matched, later sans-badge tailgate trim too).

Also note the omission of "relay mod" to either Xantia, although either that or a new ignition switch will be soon to come on Black, since the fan has started to only work before the key is turned to start...

Best do that one sooner rather than later Dan ;)

It is a good mod on an S1 even if it does not yet strictly appear necessary, as is the headlamp relay mod and the V6 starter helper relay mod...

The new bearing itself is in stock, just finding time with another car fully working so I can remove the hub and faff with it/possibly take it to a machine shop for pressing out/in (it's a front right :( ) definitely in the sooner than later list though. Relay mod can wait a while but agree it's for the best in practical terms even if a new switch lasted another 20 years, being able to switch on with the fan already on speed 3 or 4 without worrying about damaging the thing is a bonus.

EDIT- I forgot about the GTi spoiler on the 206, also the fact that it's wired for a large amplifier (unsure of the wire gauge but it's about 3/4"!) although the amp itself is currently dead as are one part of the dual voice coils on the sub :(

It’s actually an OEM mod (fitted on some Peugeot 4 or 5 series) and 100% X7 compatible Elis.😎

I did a write up here with all the parts and cost:

The front Grab handle on the C6 is PSA part number: 9128 V7.
On my C5 X7 it is 9128 Z9, and on the Peugeot 308 it is 9128 Z9 (identical) - so I guess only those vehicles with the same part number unfortunately. :cry:

Just realised I fitted leather electric/heated seats to mine.
Only because the original driver's seat collapsed though :)
So used to it it was forgotten.

New mod for White, an MoT certificate! lol Black is having a nice rest now. That sunglasses holder is a genius idea, wonder if something similar can be done to the Xantia... (Must be do-able, even if there isn't a part that'd directly fit)
