Spotted at ....municipal dump

Post by JK99 » Sun May 27, 2018 8:16 am

I was driving into the municipal dump(London, Wandsworth area) in my Rover on Friday 25th May when in my rear view mirror I saw some chevrons and a sloping front on the car behind me. At first I thought it was a Xantia, so didn't pay much attention, but later on, to my great appreciation,in one of the spaces aligned in front of the trash containers, I saw that this dark green, N-reg hatchback, 2.5TD VSX trim.

So I went up to the driver and we spent several minutes gushing on about XM's. Driver's name is Tibor, I believe, and I told him about the XM forum. He sounded interested enough to join. Told me his car had been a wreck until it had been beautifully restored by Wolsey Motors in Diss.

Good to know there is another XM driving around Wandsworth. I am not alone!
