Fortunately the weather here at Little Horwood was much better than expected and we only had light rain in the morning that quite quickly passed. The attendance has been fair with a nice variety of cars, although only three XM with all being early cars. Here are some photos and hopefully we will see a bit more activity tomorrow. With regards, Matthew T.

The attendance was generally quite light on Saturday Paul with just three XMs in attendance including Rob's white 1990 2.0si. On Sunday better weather arrived plus a very impressive number of cars and great ambience. There were three further XM on Sunday including two S2 saloons, Will's 1992 sd, and Andrew's very early 1989 2.0i. The last car is the earliest known right-hand drive model I believe and also a really rare spec. I attach a few photos taken mostly on late Sunday pm. With regards, Matthew T.

Just a quick message to say a massive thank you to Matthew and Will of this parish for sorting the suspension on my car at the rally. Will used his fabulously low tech blink tester to diagnose and clear the faults in the suspension ECU. Matt reset the suspension ECU and put the front of the car back into ‘normal’ setting. Not quite sure how it could be soft at the back and hard at the front but it was!
After a few days ‘resting’ I drove the car back to the garage tonight. We had a lovely ride through the sunset with the XM wafting along.
Great to catch up at the rally with everyone else on the forum including Russ.

That is very kind Rob and it was good to catch up with you too and a great pleasure to assist! Hopefully your hydractive suspension has behaved itself since the reset and the issue with the front may be the slightly lower ride height allowing less travel and therefore a harder feel. There is nothing quite like wafting along in a hydraulic Citroen and especially an XM! With regards, Matthew T.
