There are quite a few here, still able to fetch 2-3000 quid used.,
like a cult status here.. but though its fun to drive, the ride is choppy,
power very good, but the engine is ppretty problematic, ACAV valves konk out,
careful dont overheat it, the head tends to crack, wire harness all rotted etc..
here are some of the cars in Malaysia.

its our group MyCitroen,Net. (the site has closed due to numerous hacking but we have one an FB). we have regular meets and outings,
there are many 16V addicts and they fetch high values. there were many sold here
but the 4 dr Volcane was the top seller. quite a few being converted to GTi-6/VTS engines and gboxes now.

Sadly I've parted with the Zx16v, I had four fantastic years with it and hopefully it's going to get looked after by its new owner. I wasn't looking at replacing it with anything initially but after seeing a xantia V6 at a reasonable price I was seriously tempted but I didn't want an automatic so was stumped there as they are all auto's. After looking for a while I came across a very nice Peugeot 406 V6se coupe with a manual gearbox.It was being sold by its original owner who bought the car in 1999, it had a fully stamped service history and came with bills for servicing and exhaust this year for £950. It's got the full black leather interior and a JBL sound system as standard. It's also mot'd and taxed until February. The combination of the V6 and the manual box is something else, not to mention it's pretty reasonable on fuel when driven sensibly. The handling is obviously not as sharp as the little Zx but for a car of its size it's not bad. For what I paid for it i couldn't miss it. Here's a couple of pics.

Brother had a saloon version, no badges outside and std trim (we fitted a full electric leather to it), cracking car, surprised a Lot of people! 200 brake and lbft made an effortless speed gaining machine that cruising would return 40+mpg!
Sounded Great too! :-D
