What a day! Splendid pictures, Matthew.
The last time I stood in Coventry cathedral was around 1964! :?
The place just dwarfs those Citroens...

Was good to chat to you Matthew.
If you do remember where you bought the ball for the gearbox linkage please let me know. I had a look online but haven't found anything suitable yet.

Thanks for taking the time to post up all the pics - what a fantastic event! I'm gutted that I couldn't make it, but so pleased that you got so many XMs there.

That's a friends, ....Darren isn't on here. He likes to modify his cars. I believe he welded the CX bonnet scoop on it because of engine heat. The V6 gets quite hot under the bonnet in an XM. He also sometimes tows a caravan hence the xtra cooling.
I think he said that's a Renault blue.
