Newbie!

Post by ajw361 » 14 Jun 2013, 19:21

Hi all newbie here! I bought my xantia a few years ago now as I had to travel further for work for 12 months and couldn't justify running a petrol BMW. My father was a motor trader as I was growing up and always bought cx's, bx's, xm's and xantias so I knew what they were all about. It's an awsome car and is so comfortable to drive. I have just completed a banger rally in it covering 3000 miles across Europe! Didn't use a drop of oil or water! Although now has a small diesel leak! See previous post.

Nice one!

I SO want a black one! I love Black as a colour, but had to settle for a silver one... which is still ok. Its better then Green, or white or red..

Yes, just almost run in at 168k.

I wonder how it would look if the wheel trims were in the same gleaming black?
