Temptation

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.

That looks quite something. Amazing how similar CX and BX interiors were on later versions.
I drove a CX just once: unforgettable.

...and some more, this time for no shortage of XMs:

Being Spain, many of these will be totally rust-free.
Some decent photos and descriptions, and some tidy-looking examples.

Click on Buscar to find the chosen selection.
Click on an individual photo for more photos and details of each car.

Very nice CX and no sunroof which is rare.
“Corrosion free except for one spot rear right underfloor” - there’ll be more rot than that, it’s a CX.
Would be surprised if he gets 7000 odd euros for it, even if he fixed the rear arm bearings before sale.
Can’t help feeling if people were more realistic about pricing old Citroen’s then they’d get bought, fixed and used (which is what they need), rather than just sit there in an advert.

I agree. Looks nice, but overpriced with some significant issues to deal with.

It appears he accepted e4000 for it, but no further response from the buyer.

That is just the conditions of the platform, you have to make an offer and the seller accept it before you can make contact privately, it is still for sale.
Buying a few cars over here at the moment.

I think I know this car and saw / sat in it at a garage about 10 years ago. Unfortunately the plates are obscured in the ad, but its English 'E' reg from memory.
Will see if I can dig out a few pics.
