Hi From Metung, Australia.

Post by Allmostfrench »

Hi folks!
I'm Chris and I was a VAGaholic until it dawned on me that with Australia's crap roads demanded French cars....
Still keeping my VAG stuff for old-time's sake, but since buying a 205 SI a few years ago and realising what a great car it is, a 205 DTurbo followed and then a BX19 TGD auto was procured to use in England when I'm over there (about 3 months per year).

The rot has set in with the recent purchase of a Xantia V6, which I am bringing up to scratch as a daily driver.

Metung is a quaint little drinking village with a sailing problem on the Gippsland Lakes in Eastern Victoria. Always happy to hear from fellow sufferers and pass on the small amount of wisdom that I might have gained.

Cheers, Chris

Welcome to the Forum.

The Xantia V6 can be a great daily driver. I am on my 4th (plus an XM ES9 with manual transmission). I tend to prefer the 1997 to the later ones, What year is yours?

Mine was built on 3rd June 1998.
Sorry for the late reply, only just getting the hang of the forum!

Some aspects of the forum are part of an initiative test to prepare you for getting the hang of a Xantia V6 :wink:

Chris, interesting you suggest they're great daily drivers, as I thought the general view was that Xantias weren't - although that's not my view, after the 1st year of ownership.
