We had a really enjoyable celebration at the Citroen 100th at Coombe park on Saturday and here are some photos of the event. It was great to meet up with so many XM owners and we managed to muster 13 cars in total eventually, which was rather appropriate, since 10+3=13 and 10x3=30! I think everyone enjoyed the cake as several came back for seconds. With regards, Matthew T. PS. I hope to post up some other general rally photos later.

The cake was great, thank you for all your efforts and organisation on the day. It was a pity we couldn’t get a few more cars there.
It was good to catch up with some familiar faces and make some new friends.

Many thanks Rob and it was good to see you also and catch up. I thought the turn out on Saturday was actually quite good and we managed to muster most of the cars present, apart from a green 2.0i turbo exclusive saloon, mandarin diesel saloon (Andrew Weston) and blue S2 V6 (Darren Cross), so that made sixteen cars in total. The numbers of XM at CCC events have been falling away of late, although there was around a dozen at the last Burghley House X rally. I think there were slightly more BX at Coventry and similar numbers of BX and CX. With regards, Matthew T.

I'm now just about back in the world of the living! It was a great weekend catching up with friends and familiar faces. Glad we got so many XM together. It's great to see all the pictures too. There were a few more XM dotted about the avenue, so I think we could have raised that to at least 15.

Well done for the delicious cake Matthew, and for taking the time to make it. Only Citroen owners can through a birthday party for a car, with candles and a singing!
