The Xantia's in a different league of refinement to the BX. The Activa was and still is the most impressive car I've owned. I'd never have sold it if the engine didn't manage to only do 22mpg AND be crap at the same time.

If only they'd done the V6 over here!

There is a chap who has converted quite a few activa's to v6, would make a truely awsome car then! The suspension makes it amazing as it is, but with the V6 in wouuld be unbeatable!
There are a couple forsale on french car forum, std lump though,

Have been playing with the alliminium tape on the trims, looks alright on the sides but the curved bits from the rear looks awful, so thinking that a crack with some plastikote chrome silver will be better! At least is only a fiver for the tape :wink:

Not started with machine polishing yet, just not hadthe energy and enthusiasm when have had the time or weather!
:wink: :wink:
