Many thanks for posting up the slides Jason and the images are familiar but nevertheless great to see once again. It is also nice to have the slides in your collection that I suspect are quite rare now. With regards, Matthew T.

The book is quite something. Like a lot on the XM, it was done with some pride and panache. Citroen must have known they were doing something very special, likely not to be repeated.

Just looked at the slides for the first time. They are also quite splendid.
Thank you for getting them digitised!

Yes...I must say that I have been pleasantly surprised with the XM. I don't know what the situation is elsewhere, but here in Australia the XM is looked upon as a bit of a joke.."Citroen People" chuckle & roll their eyes when you say that you have an XM, but I am so impressed with the engineering & style of the car, the Joke is on them I reckon. The technology & "In your face" styling, both inside & out really appeal to me. Citroen really did do something special, in my opinion.

When this car is finished, I will have a stylish, advanced & unique car..who cares what others think!
