I bet you are enjoying yourself Mike and how nice to be touring Italy! That was also interesting you received an offer to buy the car and shows appreciation for the model. With regards, Matthew T.

Another summer is officially over, both the Xantia and XM have been put away for the winter.

Tally of work required on the XM this year...
  • One set of front brake pads (the disks will need replacing next time)
  • One engine oil change
The car has just reached a mileage of 105,000 km, so that is 35,000 km in my 5 years of ownership.

The Xantia did hardly any miles this year, but next year it might get a trip back to the UK.

Now, now, you know these hydropneumatic buses thrive on a bit of regular use! ;)

We have been back in France for a month, but there is not much to report on either car. They just work.

Yesterday I was following an XM for a while, and when it slowed down for a roundabout I noticed that there was a nasty kink in the bodywok above a rear wheel, and corresponding signs of trauma to the rear bumper. A shame because it looked like a cared-for car. Later I realised that it was an ES9 V6 because it had the twin tailpipes. It turned off my route a few km from home.
