Re: I am astonished
For some reason I even have a soft spot for the old XMs.
I don't - I drove one of those for about 9 months..
Plusses: great ride, lovely seats.
Minusses: The great ride only lasted as long as the next bit to fall off the hyropneumatic system, the bodyshell would rot every time a bit of water touched it, the gearbox lunched itself at 45K miles (despite following all the required maintenance) and the driver seat worked it's way loose..
