Hello, and welcome,
I had a Xantia, only a 2.0 diesel (pre Hdi) but dreamt of getting behind the wheel of an Activa, but never did, the idea of going round bend without body roll!! :rofl2:

Thank you for the warm welcome.

Taking into account that there are only 31 licesend Activas left, meeting at least 3 owners in one single day is pretty cool. :-D

Thats nearly 10% of the Activa population.
