No. No way. She'd fail now. No rocket science. Everybody would know this cause it's blowing through the wrong opening of the exhaust. I'll fix it tomorrow. You're just jealous? ;) Shouldn't have sold Turby to me...

A perfectly smooth, faultless return journey from Ireland to France once again. There is nothing to report so no complaints and questions there. yet...
I've seen a good few of XM's in daily use in France but only 1 (one) Cactruss (sorry Russ)

I did however run into a very unusual XM smack bang in the middle of France, of which I did take some pics. Unusual in the sense of it registration plates that is.

And last but not least I noticed a dark XM (my second in Ireland in at least 4 years) driving on board the Stena Europe this morning. So I figure it was a UK registered one, maybe one of somebody here? You certainly didn't see me since I was still on deck of the Stena Horizon with our XM under guard of captain Haddock himself.

Maybe somewhat run down but certainly still in use, all the way from New Jersey....

That isn't a USA car, it doesn't have the DOT headlights or side markers. I suspect it is just fitted with US style number plates.

:) Well, it certainly had US number plates on her, and I wouldn't chance driving an illegal car in France like that, would you?

I'm finding it hard to understand why anyone would spend money shipping a fairly tired XM from the US to France. Just buy one cheaper.

Yeah, that can't be an American one, I think all the US imports were v6's anyway, that one is a basic model, no spoiler....and as Will point so it the USA lights were quite different. Curious it has USA plates. How strange.

These Cractussessss. Are they really catching on? :lol: I've only seen three here.
