i recently posted info on my 96n xantia td. saying it wasn't too well..
having spent a few hundred pounds on it. it realy does drive like a new car.
i had test driven a few newer cars adn i must say none of them came close to
new alternator, spheres (including anti sink and the other one at the front)
alt tensioner and idler and belt of course. cam belt. general service. 4
heater plugs. 2 wing mirrors (vandalism) a good valet and wash and polish
and its better than most new cars on teh road today.
Thanks to everyone that gave me advice on here over the last few weeks.
