Two XMs for spares/repair

Selling off one (or bits :o) of your XM collection, or perhaps searching for those elusive headlight washer covers? This is the place to do it.

Two XMs for spares/repair

Post by Claireerayner » Sat May 23, 2020 11:22 am

My Dad was a citroen enthusiast for years and has a collection of 2 XMs and 3 Xantia's. Unfortunately he has had to go into a care home so the cars have to go. All 5 are SORN but two were running until May 2019. One is a 3 litre auto (I believe) that was running. The second XM I believe is an exclusive so has leather interior etc. I am loathe to just get a scrap dealer to take them away. The cars are in Sutton Coldfield but I am in Kent so please message me if you interested in viewing. I will try to get pictures next time I am up there.

Hi Claire,

The cars deserve as good home - as does your Dad!

It might also be worth putting this post on to FCF (frenchcarforum.co.uk), as there have been some folk there looking for Xantia.

Just go to bottom of page, and hit Register. After a quick check, you'll be able to make a post - do it under the Citroen section.

On the XMs, I know geography is a problem, but if you have any further details about the cars, that might help. Even if you just know the registration numbers (plates), that could help someone interested with looking up the cars' history.

Probably both XM are worth saving and possibly both are Series2 3.0i Exclusive.

It would definitely be worth you posting some photos, when possible. The problem for most on here is they already have too many XM's...

Hi Patrick
As I see that you have only just joined this forum, I will make a suggestion. The original poster suggests that you message her, so she may not be monitoring this thread very closely.

To send an email or forum message to someone, click on their name (2nd line in any post they have made), and you will be taken to a new page which gives links to email and forum message forms.

Cheers
Alec (still new here myself :) )

Good advice. Sending a PM not only sends a direct message, but also usually triggers an e-mail to the recipient, alerting them to the new message.
