White early low mileage diesel XM.

Post by Jaki1122 » Sun May 31, 2020 5:10 am

Well, a couple of weeks before I bought my XM, I was told that a local workshop / dealer had one in exposition just 3 km from were I live (in a small town in Valencia, Spain), so I went to take a look at it.
It's an early XM (I thing from 90-91), painted in white and it looks just pristine, however, its a low spec car, not many extras on it. It's got an atmospheric diesel engine if I remember correctly and it only had about 60000 km on the odometer. The car belonged to an old man who only used it as a 2nd car and now that he can drive it anymore, he gave it to the workshop owner. Despite being on exposition, its not for sale, its there just because its looks way to gorgeous to not put it there ;)
It's future is uncertain, but not in a bad way. The current owner told me three things might happen:
1 - Sell it within a couple of years.
2 - Fix it and enjoy it as a classic
3 - Let it on the exposition.
Its been a few years since its last road trip, however, the car is being maintained (well at the end of the day it is parked in a workshop).
Next time I pass by I'll take some photos of it so you can take a look at it.

It's always the very basic cars that are low mileage as most Xm were bought by business users who wanted comfort for high mileage use. These tended to be higher spec.

That one will probably be sans-hydractive.

Quite probably doesn't have hydractive, as it's the most basic trim. Monday probably I'll pass next to it, so I'll take some pictures of it and take a closer look.

Should be an interesting one, if non-Hydractive and 2.1 NA diesel. Economy!
Only gets more back-to-basics if it were a 2.0 carburettor petrol :?
Look forward to your report and some photos.

That looks great.
The condition of the chrome door strips says the car is immaculate.

White...the no sunroof, long roof look...what's not to like.

White does look something special - and no lacquer to peel, if original paint.
