Going OFF TOPIC here but dont you think there are more XMs left, than BXs.

I can go weeks round here without seeing any BXs but must see 3 or 4 XMs per week.

I think there were less than 5000 XM estates sold in the UK full stop. I might be wrong.

Thing is, I see quite a lot about! I'd quite like a good 1997-99 in green with all the extras (working - as if!)...

Anyway, BACK ON TOPIC: Citroen's corporate ID is RED. Not black. So the red logo is, strictly speaking closer to the Citroen image. Somehow black is nicer on a steering wheel - looks more sophisticated, like...

Sometime it doesn't work as on those TOTAL rear window stickers they (until recently?) put on that looked like the equivalent of a photocopy. Nothing like the striking quality of the BXCLUB stickers (thanks BTW, they look good)...
