Xsara / Xsantia, Off my radar I am afraid. Moderns. CX, nice, never had one but got a 2.5 Turbo Diesel engine/gearbox for one. Well it made sense at the time!

A man after my own heart, i agree wholeheartedly.

As for CX's, well i actually believe they are the greatest and prettiest car Citroen ever made.

The last Citroen for me was a Mk1 Xantia, after that I lost all interest (apart from a C6).

Saw a Mk1 ('L' reg) Xantia in mid-blue yesterday and thought it looked rather nice. A TD I think. But that's as far as I think I'd go; I'm with Tim on this.
However, IF a nice Xsara VTS mk 1 came up in red, (I think they only did them in red in France?) I might be tempted.

The Xsara couple isnt an unattractive car but its just not a proper Citroen in my eyes. Single wiper/steering wheel spoke and or hydraulic suspension and wheels spats do it for me...

Phil - a ZX is a definite progression from Peugeot 806! And it's a lovely ZX! Looking forward to seeing you and Phoebe at LH x
