LHD V6

Selling off one (or bits :o) of your XM collection, or perhaps searching for those elusive headlight washer covers? This is the place to do it.

LHD V6

What do people think of this?

Two problems are described:
needs two new rear suspension spheres and there is a leak from the steering rack.

Now a hard ride at the back might not be spheres, it might a hydractive system stuck in sport, but I imagine it's diagnosable using helpful expertise on here.

What I don't have any knowledge of is the importance of a leak from a diravi steering rack. Might it be a leak from a low pressure return pipe or gaiter, or might it be a serious matter requiring refurbishment or replacement of the rack? Anyone got any expertise to share?

At the price it's not worth worrying about. The worst case is the rack needs refurbishing with new seals.

Be aware this is the PRV engine, not the later Es9.

If you want an S2 car and are happy enough with LHD, then it should be a good buy as it is unlikely to have any rust, has no sunroof and is white.

If it were me going for it I would budget for a rebuild of the steering system, if you are not doing it yourself I would speak to Plaiedes and see what sort of figure they put on it. You may be surprised when you get the car and find it is only a minor issue but as I'm sure you can imagine it may not.
Looks like a nice car for the money and not an opportunity that surfaces that often in the UK.

Good luck if you go for it.

No sunroof, a manual box, maybe not rusty, white (so no lacquer)... Could be rather good, especially at that price.
