I have a spare set of doors in that colour, but they are in France, and I won't be back there for 6 months.

Funny - I called in to see my Jeep guy today, turns out he trained at the local Citroen main dealer and worked on XMs when they were new. I’ve known him for years and I never knew that!

For those who wanted to see the other cars, i’ll kick off with the Cherokee that I bought from him.

4.0 litre petrol with lpg so 14mpg doesn’t hurt quite as much. It has a 3500 kg towing weight so I can smile and wave at VOSA as I cruise past with almost any car on the trailer. The heaviest thing I’ve towed was a 93L Daimler 6.0 V12

The older 75 is a project but has only done 17,000 miles so had to be saved.

The Alfa 6 is also a project as parts availability is terrible. I had to drive to drive to Italy and back a few years ago to get parts.

The newer 75 was finished 2 years ago.

And I saved this one 2 or 3 years ago but never got around to advertising it for sale when it was finished.

The 146 cost loads more to do than it’s currently worth.
