Good work mate! For the first time I see your expert eye being applied to XMs. Everyone's got XM'er! :D

I keep an eye out for XMs, CXs and GSs as well as my beloved BXs, because these are "direct ancestors or descendants" of the BX and I know that quite a few BXclub.co.uk members have an interest in other Citroen marques.
I'm aware that an interest is also now being shown in ZXs, and early Xantias.
However, I don't think I'll end up "spotting" C5s (not yet anyway !).

Cheers !

On Saturday I saw three BXs in one day :shock: , plus I was driving mine at the time, so that makes four in the local vicinity of Walton-on-Thames. One of them was waiting to do a right turn, so I flashed to allow her to turn and got a cheery wave. Yes a lady driver!

Cheers,

Mark.

Unwittingly, I have been BX spotting for ages :)

Yesterday, a very late L reg TZD in a Tesco car park and the day before, a red J reg TZD.

Both in good looking condition as well. The red one looks to be owned by someone who cares for it and may be an enthusuiast.

Hello John, what were you doing in Zürich? If you find yourself there again, we're only 50k from Zürich and serve a great cup of tea ( rare round these parts). All BX'ers welcome!
