Rob, I'm actually based in Gloucestershire, but have storage near Warminster because it's cheap and I know the other tenants. Next time I'm heading down I'll be in touch if I remember.

Citroenxm - thanks, but I managed to sort the rear lights out. I may need some others in future though as the nearside front foglight lens is actually a LHD unit (which the MOT man may or may not spot), plus I am keeping my eyes open for some better estate rear lights as a couple of Saruman's are cracked.

Mike, I know were Dursley is, I used to visit the Council offices there for meetings.

Perhaps we could me up half way one evening for a shandy?

I am a bit off Warminster way, we are more central rather than West Wiltshire.

Sounds good to me!

I wonder if anyone else in the area would like to join in?

The more the merrier. Unfortunately the SW seems a little then on XM drivers :(

There are a few round here, most of which get looked after by the Westons in some way or another (they have a few themselves, and sold me both of mine). My local dealer, Thompson First (used to be Lacey & Thompson), have 3 customers on their books that run XM's including myself (although oly for parts), and one of the other 2 is Mr. Thompson!

I'm one of those XM drivers too!!! :D I saw you the other week Mike whilst driving to the Westons. (C5 was going for a service) ... I was in the XM.

I couldn't believe it when Andrew said your still driving the Estate with a leaky HG! Had a good look at Hilary's Birotor too. 8-)

Good to see you back on here. :D

Shall we set a date?

I am looking to take the XM off the road in December for much needed welding and paint.

Sometime in November? Do we fancy a school night or weekend/Friday.

Location wise probably easier if I head North as the Southern outlier!!

The Air Balloon is about 45 minutes out from me?

We seem to have hijacked Mikes thread :oops:

Shall we move to a new spot in General/free for all?

No one has complained about the hijack.
Used the Air Balloon for lunch last week.
If I can I will come if that is ok.
