Hi all long time XM lover and have just purchased myself a 2.1 TD exclusive in silver... Reg T336VOO no history... It would be great if anyone can give me any insight into the cars murky past... To me it looks like extensive work has been done to the engine and the body work is pristine (ish) work done maybe... it has mot but was off the road for 6 years till 2016... I am happy with the car but would just like to know its past 8-)

Hello, and welcome.
Hopefully someone here will be able to unearth something of the car's history.
Whereabouts are you based? Is that Trunch in Norfolk?
Do post some photos of the car, especially that engine compartment.

Hi White Exec... Spot on with the location :) at the moment it is in with my mechanic having exhaust rerouted (rattling bad) fan belt (squealing bad) fuel leak on return (starting bad after standing and it whiffs a bit)... Many jobs too be done , front bumper is damaged and foglight broken (anyone out there with one for sale?)... Boot is waterlogged (i am guessing sunroof drains ?) lots of switch gear illuminating lights need replacing.... and a new cubby hole insert needed (again anyone got one?)... Pictures will follow when it stops raining :)

No shortage of XM folk in Norfolk now - also MTXM, Tallboy, sageman.
The job list should keep you busy.
Let us know how you get on - Open All Hours.

Hi and welcome to the Forum and I am just down the road in Aylsham with parents at North Walsham. It would be good to meet up sometime and I will try and help where I can. As you will note I am a serial XMer although earlier models are my thing! With regards, Matthew T.
