It was good to catch up with a few of the XM regulars (Ray, Russ, Dave and Rob etc.) and meet some new faces including James (Emerald S2 tct estate) last weekend, although Will and Paul in particular were much missed! The attendance and weather was better on the Sunday and as at the National I provided some entertainment with my sphere re-charge kit! I attach a few photos that I managed to fit in during late Sunday just to give the flavour. With regards, Matthew T.

If you squint a lot and I mean a lot, the Maxi is quite similar to a DS in its proportions. It needs its rear wheel covered up though!

I love Toms Onyx. I do like Sable.

I have to agree.. there is no way in this world even with a squint a maxi can be compared to a Ds.. thats just a complete and utter insult to Ds ..

Err, yes Rus, although like others I am not entirely convinced! There is some similarity in the angles of the roof pillars including the swept back rear end. With regards, Matthew T.

:lol: I did say squint a lot, so it's a blur! Excellent wheel arch covers!

It's a controversial thing to say got to admit. It's the long wheelbase and slopy rear end i'm on about. Almost...almost teardrop like.
Otherwise, yes the DS is superior in EVERY way to the Maxi.
