    I'd love to be corrected but I thought that Australia didn't get any. Only autos.

    There was a green V6 manual with Qld "Cit" number plates for sale a few years ago. Just over $5k, on sale for what seemed forever. Around that time seem to recall mention made of 5 manual V6s. But really stretching the memory!

    You want the 24V PRV with a decat. That would boogie.

    The ES9J4 is also used in a 3.0 24V XM, though.

    Ahhh - didn't know that... Why wouldn't the newer engine be better? The ES9J4S in my wife's 406 is a ripper..

    They're very different animals, I like the (relative) lack of refinement in the PRV. It really is like a truncated V8.

    24v PRV engined XMs were never sold new in Australia. The one that I know of, with a manual 'box, was a private import from the UK. There may be more.

    I drove that 24v manual once. I called it a licence loser.

    The late 24v ES9J4 engined XMs were only sold in Aus with auto 'boxes.

    In other words, all XMs sold in Aus were V6 Autos.

    And no, we did not get diesels at all, nor the 4 cylinder petrol engine variants.

    In LHD, Diravi form, a spiritual successor to the SM perhaps?

    No it was RHD and built for the British market. There was no DIRAVI in RHD XMs. There was no space to fit the required components in RHD cars.

    Sorry, I can't help with a 24V manual XM. However, I do have some factory tooling for the manual gearboxes MG5T (and clutch) and ME5T, should anyone be particularly keen to possess them. Both were used in the XM as well as some other PSA models, but I think it was the MG5T used with the V6. I'll never use these tools, so am happy to pass them on to someone who might.

    I have the one that I think Craig is referring to, but not its engine.

    I saw one at Paris Motors in Melbourne on the way to Cit-in in 2002. The engine bay was totally full - they would be a nightmare to have to fix.

    Cheers, Ken

    24 V manuals were 200HP and light with fewer airbags and add-on farnackles of the series 2 models. They go like stink from what I have read, but the valves used to starve for oil apparently so a habit of going bang. I have been lurking to find one for sale.

    Someone told me that that there was an initial handful of 8v 2.0 manuals which were sold here new...

    Other than that, if you want a V6 XM with a manual transmission - good luck.

    I can recall seeing one, maybe two green ones, a blue one and a red one. All private imports.

    The red one may have ended up here ...
    24V PRVeiw - Turbobricks Forums

    There could have been more than two green (Vert Vega?) examples here. There was one at a Tweed Heads dealer for the best part of a year going back a couple of years. Another member here had a green one in Victoria. The dismantled car Roger has parts from could be another car again or one of these.

    Perhaps talk to some of the specialist mechanics who might have serviced them?

    The XMs sold here new were auto V6 in either 12 Valve (PRV) or 24 Valve (ES9), although I had been told a few oddballs may have come here very early on. The thing would be to look for the Australian manufacturer's compliance plate to see if it was sold locally or not. Franzcars at that point I'd think. It may also have been possible that a few oddballs crept in as holiday deliveries then brought back with importer blessing and support???

    the reason i want to know where they are is because my dad used to own that red one that has been spoken about. and it caught fire. the one here 24V PRVeiw - Turbobricks Forums is his. the insurance company never even let him see the car when the accident happened (he was overseas). So now i (his son) am on the hunt to buy him one

    I came across that Volvo web page by chance a few months ago. No doubt a loss for your father at the time. Were you aware that was its fate previously? It wold be a 'different' conversion of an older Volvo to the usual V8, especially replacing a failed PRV engine.

    Did your father's red car come via NSW? If it was never in NSW, then there may be another red one out there somewhere. There was certainly one in Sydney around 2000-ish.

    It would probably be possible to get enough bits out of the UK, to build one from a regular XM. I know a bloke with a couple of the motors in a shed.

    Putting one in a 405 Mi16 would be akin to the Lancia Thema V8...
