Getting a Xantia

Post by silverfox » Wed Jul 12, 2006 3:40 pm

Hi folks am getting a Xantia on Thursday! Will I be allowed to stay in this hallowed place 'cos I shall always be a BX fan and who knows what the future holds!

If it hadn't been for a couple of 'Johny Promise' mechanics letting me down time and again I wouldn't be in the position I'm in with my BX!

You'll be welcome. Marty had a ZX for a while, and I've even been known to lust after a CX.

I also have a Xantia 2.0HDi with a Dragon Tuning Box to bring the BHP up to about 110 ish from 90.
Its used mostly by the wife.

Poor darling couldn't keep her water down, kept spitting it out! Head/gasket problem. Felt like a change though after so long with her!

The Xantia

Post by silverfox » Thu Jul 13, 2006 2:23 pm

Picked it up today. Shiny black. Wonderful drive. Rises instantly. fast but not as fast as my TXD!!! Miss the old girl already maybe I should keep and get her sorted later. :cry: A few little blemishes here and there. Very clean cloth interior. LOVE the sound system and steering wheel controls! More when I've thrashed around for a while.
