You will be pleased to know that an Xm is simpler than an Activa.
It may not perform the moose test as quickly as an Activa...a tall order given the Activa is the quickest car in the world..., but overall, is still pretty sharp and noticeably more comfortable and refined.

You seem to have the hydractive bug...

A 3.0i Xm Activa, would be really something.

A thought just occurred to me.
As the car is being delivered is it a non-runner...maybe with a snapped timing belt?
