Dug through photos for 20 mins to find that :)

It was at a car booty in the midlands in the summer of 2011.

My first Xantia was a sinker. On an L plate.

Absolutely right Mark :) I'm sure the large manufacturers will cotton to the need for soft long-travel suspension again soon... Driving a tin-springer must be purgatory these days. No wonder so many drivers look so miserable...

If i have my 24v s1 manual at a rally and hopefully cxm this year then you will know what performance and large cars are then. Plus the best ride in the world. . The xantia just. Doesn't touch the xm at all. ..


OK, I'd like a ride in a Xantia AND an XM! My previous car was a Volvo V70 T5, so I know what performance and large cars are (not sure about the best ride in the world though!)

As some of you may have read elsewhere I waxed the C4 the other day, but unfortunately it seems someone had been a little over exuberant with silicone based shine-in-a-can which has not reacted well with the finish of the C4... [-X :mecker: It polishes off with a microfibre but it's not right as it's finished all blotchy. A wash and another wax tomorrow will sort it. Damn annoying though as it was looking so good... :roll: My own fault really but the plastics shine-in-a-can brought the few pieces of exterior plastic up lovely although did it too soon after waxing. I'll do them first, from now on... :lol:



I just wondered what you have tried for the plastics since then. I recently got some aptly named G Technic C4 http://gtechniq.com/shop/3s-for-cars/ex ... -restorer/
I've only tried it on a few bits, the "diffuser" at the bottom of the rear bumper, the aerial, the side window surrounds (on this car nothing I tried worked on these, they always looked crap but not now!) and the VTS badges, which are now a nice red instead of pink. If it lasts as long as they say it should it would be great as (particularly on my daughter's Clios) I was getting fed up with re blacking the trim every wash. I hope it does last this long as it's madly expensive, but as I say the best thing I've used so far!

Would it be ok to come in a vehicle sold in the same Japanese showrooms as Citroen's in the late 1980's/early 1990's?
I'm suggesting a 1997 Eunos Roadster.
Even the handbook and folder have Citroen chevrons beside the Eunos badge.

Heres hoping,

Martin.


You can come in or on anything you like Martin.

If you come on a horse it might get barbecued though :twisted:


Wouldn't two horses be better? Deux Chevaux? 2cv?

If anyone would be interested I've got a few Xantia parts I don't need so will be bringing them with me. A couple of brand new lower ball joints (Lemforder), 4 hub caps (style of hubcap is Baccarat as used on S2 Xantia, fits 15" wheel) and a set of roofbars for Xantia or XM (assuming I can get them in a Eunos/Mx5).


You don't happen to still have the Bacarrat wheeltrims?
